  • Description

    This angel weathervane is made from polished copper and features a square ridge tile for added beauty and for fitting. This weathervane, made from polished copper, is a lovely addition. Its unique design not only serves as a lovely ornament, but also improves the roof aesthetics and adds interest

    The weathervane is fully operational, and its angelic figure gracefully turns in the wind to point in that direction. Its hypnotic motion will make your roof look more interesting.

    The standard terracotta colour of the square ridge tile fitting ensures a good generic fit with your current roof. However, if you'd like, we also offer a variety of other colours and finishes.

    The height of the weathervane, at 33 inches (86cm), is meant to be eye catching. The ridge's square base is 12" (30cm) on each side and 11" (28cm) in height. These measurements will give your roof a well proportioned and balanced look.

    This angel weathervane requires little effort to set up. You can keep your roof free of holes and brackets by using the square ridge tile fitting and mortar. This will protect your roof from water damage and ensure its longevity.

    A metal strap can be added as a mechanical fix for those who prefer it. The strap is sturdy yet malleable, so it can be cut to size with relative ease. It has a number of holes so that it can be fastened to the roof with screws, nails, or any other suitable fasteners. When the ridge base is being installed with conventional mortar, the metal strap can be covered up out of sight.

    Whether you have a square, double hip, pyramid, tower, or flat roof, this angel ridge weathervane is a perfect fit. They are not limited to use as roof decorations; they can also serve as garden ornaments. Putting this weathervane on your roof or in your garden will instantly make your home or garden more interesting and attractive.

  • 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.
