  • Description

    Here is the beautiful Steel Angler Weathervane, which is made to easily add to the beauty of your roof. This fancy weathervane is made of long-lasting steel and has a half round roof ridge. You can improve the look of your roof by choosing to add a beautiful and unique finial.

    This weathervane is not only a nice decoration, but it also works perfectly. The figure of an angler turns gracefully with the breeze to show the direction of the wind. The standard colour for the ridge tile fitting is terracotta, but we also have a number of other colours and finishes to choose from.

    Information about measurements:

    Height as a whole: 33" (82cm)
    Half round base; width: 10" (24cm), length: 12" (30cm), height: 8" (20.5cm).

    Why put up with the trouble of installing brackets when this weathervane is so easy to put up?

    Many installers are worried about making holes in the roof or putting brackets on it or inside the roof space because this could make the roof less waterproof. Installing the Angler Weathervane is a very simple process. Just use traditional mortar to put the half-round roof ridge in place on the roof. This makes sure that the installation process is easy and doesn't cause any damage to your roof.

    Also, the weathervane has a flexible metal strap that can be used for a mechanical fix. This metal strap is easy to unwind and cut to the right length. It has a variety of holes that let you screw, nail, or attach it to a part of the roof structure to keep it in place. Once the metal strap is fastened securely, it can be hidden when the ridge base is put in place using traditional mortar. This extra feature gives installers peace of mind, making sure that the end result is safe and looks good.

    Our Angler Ridge Weathervanes can be put on many different kinds of roofs, like gable ends, hip ends, houses, cottages, sheds, workshops, and even summer houses. They are also flexible enough that they can be put in gardens to look nice. The installation process is still simple and can be changed to fit your needs.

  • 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.
