  • Description

    Here is the beautiful Copper Verdigris Angel Weathervane, which will look great on your roof. This beautiful weathervane is made of copper verdigris and is both useful and beautiful. It is mounted on a half-round ridge tile, and its unique finial decoration makes the roof look better.

    The whole height of the weathervane is 32 inches (82 cm), and it comes with a terracotta-colored ridge base. But if you want something different, we are happy to offer a wide range of colours and finishes. The half-round ridge tile fitting is 10 inches wide (24 cm), 12 inches long (30 cm), and 8 inches high (20.5 cm).

    It might seem hard to put up a weathervane, but with our angel weathervane, you won't have to worry. The traditional method of installing mortar makes sure that the process is simple and easy. You don't have to drill holes or put up brackets that could weaken your roof or cause leaks. Just use mortar to install the half-round ridge tile fitting, and your weathervane will stay put.

    The weathervane has a useful metal strap that gives it more stability. This strap is flexible and easy to adjust and cut to the right size. It has a number of holes that let you screw, nail, or otherwise attach it to the roof. Once the metal strap is securely in place, it can be hidden when the ridge base is put in place with traditional mortar. This clever device gives both installers and homeowners peace of mind.

    Our angel ridge weathervanes are the most versatile on the market. Its decorative appeal goes beyond roofs, as it can be used on gable ends, hip ends, houses, cottages, sheds, workshops, and even summer houses. You can also put this angel weathervane in your garden to give your outdoor space a magical touch.

    Experience how easy it is to put up the Copper Verdigris Angel Weathervane and how beautiful it looks. Make a fashion statement while figuring out the direction of the wind with ease.

  • How to fit and install

    There are several ways to install roof finials, as outlined below:

    Traditional mortar bedding:

    Roof finials can be installed following the same method used for ridge tiles, utilising standard mortar bedding. In cases where the finial is tall or heavy, or if enhanced stability is desired, an additional mechanical fix method can be employed alongside the mortar bed installation.

    Mechanical fixing strap and mortar bedding:

    For this type of install, a galvanized metal strap is included, discreetly fastened to the underside of the finial ridge base during manufacturing. This durable and flexible metal strap can be adjusted in length by cutting it down to size. Featuring a series of holes, the strap can be screwed, nailed, or embedded in mortar to anchor it to a section of the roof structure. After securing the metal strap, installers can conceal it from sight by applying traditional mortar bed. The mortar used to join the finial with adjacent ridge tiles effectively conceals the strap, resulting in a seamless and neat appearance.

    Dry fixing:

    Another approach to affixing finials to the roof involves the dry fixing method. This technique involves using a specific manufacturer's dry fixing system, typically incorporating brackets or alternative mechanical fasteners to attach ridge tiles and finials to the roof without the use of mortar. If you are considering a dry fix ridge system, please get in touch with us to determine if this finial design can be adapted to be compatible with your chosen system.
