  • Description

    Elevate the aesthetics of your rooftop with the exquisite copper verdigris golfer weathervane, thoughtfully designed to be installed on various pitch roofs as the ridge tile fitting designs comes in a range of different angles. This charming weathervane, weathered to a stunning copper verdigris, is a truly unique and eye catching addition to your rooftop. The golfer figure gracefully pivots in response to the wind's direction. While the standard ridge tile installation boasts a timeless terracotta colour, we offer a selection of alternative colours and textures to suit your roof's individual style.

    But why opt for this integrated solution over traditional brackets?

    The answer lies in the preservation of your roof's integrity and watertightness. Many roofers are cautious about drilling holes and mounting brackets on the roof or within the roof space, as it can potentially compromise the structure and lead to water leakage. Installing the golfer weathervane is far more convenient and low hassle. The ridge tile fitting securely attaches to your roof using mortar, ensuring a straightforward and uncomplicated installation process. Additionally, we provide an optional mechanical fastener in the form of a flexible metal strap. This durable and adaptable strap can be easily tailored to your needs, with predrilled holes for secure attachment to the roof in various configurations. Once the metal strap is fastened in place, it seamlessly disappears beneath the ridge, concealed by mortar bedding, providing peace of mind and structural security during installation.

    The golfer ridge weathervanes find their place on gable ends, houses, buildings, cottages, sheds, workshops, summer cabins, and more, adding a touch of sophistication to various roof styles. Beyond rooftops, these weathervanes serve as captivating garden decorations, allowing you to infuse your outdoor space with elaborate design and eye catching features. Choose this golfer weathervane to elevate your rooftop and outdoor areas with both form and function, creating a truly striking focal point for your home.

  • 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.
