Angel weathervane supplied with a double arch 45 degree angle ridge tile
Elegant and charming, this copper verdigris angel weathervane is paired with a double arch 45 degree angle ridge tile. This weathervane, weathered to a stunning copper verdigris, is both an eye catching ornament and a functioning wind feature.
Its tall 26.8 inch (68cm) height will be a magnificent focal point on the roof of your home or business. At 12 inches (296mm) in length and 9 inches (225mm) in width, the 45 degree angled ridge base ensures a snug and stylish fit.
You might be wondering what makes this angel weathervane with its specialised ridge tile fitting such a better option than a standard bracket installation. The primary goal of any roofing system should be to keep water out. It can be stressful for installers to drill into the roof or work within the roof's confines to attach traditional brackets.
This angel weathervane, on the other hand, requires minimal effort to set up. Using mortar, the ridge tile fitting can be firmly installed on the roof, making installation much more straightforward. The weathervane can be easily installed thanks to the included mechanical fix fitting, a strong yet adaptable metal strap that can be trimmed to fit any installation. The strap has a number of holes so it can be nailed, screwed, or otherwise fastened to the roof. The metal strap, once fastened, can be hidden using standard mortar methods during the ridge base's installation
Gable ends, hip ends, houses, cottages, sheds, workshops, and summer houses are just some of the structures that can benefit from these angel ridge weathervanes. In addition to being a beautiful addition to any roof, the Angel feature weathervanes can also be used as garden ornaments. This weathervane is the perfect addition to any roof because it adds both visual interest and attention to detail.
- 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.
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.
