  • Description

    This steel angler weathervane can be mounted on a choice of ridge tile fittings set at different angles. This stunning steel weathervane will make a great focal point atop your home's roof. This weathervane is not just a decorative piece it actually works to show the direction of the wind as it rotates. Although terracotta is the default colour for ridge tiles, custom colours and finishes are also available on request.

    Why not just use a bracket to mount the weathervane?

    Installers can be discouraged from making holes in or otherwise altering the roof in order to fasten brackets, as this potentially compromises the roofs ability to keep water out during rainstorms. This angler weathervane requires minimal effort and time to set up. Mortar can be used to firmly attach the ridge tile fitting to the roof, making for a smooth installation. The metal strap that serves as an optional mechanical fix fitting on the weathervane provides both stability and adaptability. This sturdy strap can be cut to size and installed with screws, nails, or directly into the roof. Once the metal strap is fastened in place, it can be hidden during the ridge base installation using the same methods as a traditional mortar bed

    Anglers and fishermen will find the Angler Ridge weathervane to be a delightful addition to their outdoor spaces. This versatile piece can be easily mounted on various structures, from the peak of a gable to a house, cottage, or even a workshop. Its adaptability extends to garden settings, where it can serve as a captivating ornament. This weathervane not only adds intricate detail to rooftops and gardens but also captures the essence of fishing and the outdoors, making it a perfect choice for those who appreciate the beauty of water and the charm of the great outdoors. Whether adorning a rustic cabin or a suburban home, this weathervane adds a touch of visual allure that resonates with the hearts of anglers and nature enthusiasts alike.

  • 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.
