Gargoyle finials are said to ward off evil spirits and their symbolism and use in British architecture has a rich history. Gargoyles not only add detail and distinction to the roof they historically also served a useful purpose of draining water from the roof, often spouting the water out of their mouths. Their often grotesque and mythical appearance can add great character and a nice feature to period properties and new projects.
The gargoyle roof finials that we offer can be installed on the ridge line and typically at the end of a gable roof. Due to their mass appeal and versatility they can normally be fitted anywhere in the row of ridge tiles, creating a very nice gothic effect and adding interest and detail to the roof. Gargoyle sculptures are cast, finished, and produced in the UK
We have a wide range of roof gargoyles, or ridge gargoyles as they are known available to choose from. This collection is a great range consisting of quality reproduction finials and exclusive architectural finial designs
