  • Description

    A stunning addition that will enhance the attractiveness of your roof is the magnificent Polished Copper Fish Weathervane. A polished copper fish that was painstakingly created to serve as an eye-catching and unique finial adornment is included on this elaborate weathervane. It not only adds a touch of elegance but also serves as a fully functional weathervane, rotating smoothly in the wind to show the predominant direction.

    The ease of installation of this weathervane is one of its noticeable benefits. The Polished Copper Fish Weathervane enables an easy installation without having to worry about drilling holes or mounting brackets to the roof or inside the roof space. The weathervane's round ridge tile capping may be easily and quickly installed because it can be completely integrated into the roof using conventional mortar. As an additional mechanical fastening option, we provide a strong and flexible metal strap. The strap has a number of holes that enable secure attachment using screws, nails, or other acceptable means to the roof structure. It is simple to uncoil and trim to size.

    Installers can skillfully hide the metal strap from view after anchoring it using a conventional mortar bed, maintaining the weathervane's artistic attractiveness. The Polished Copper Fish Weathervane's adaptability has no bounds; it may be mounted on a variety of roof types, including turrets, towers, flat roofs, round roofs, and circular roofs. It can also be shown as an eye-catching artistic installation in your garden. The Polished Copper Fish Weathervane offers a hassle-free and adaptable alternative for customers looking to improve the aesthetic appeal of their roofs thanks to its simple installation and versatility.

  • 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.
