Golfer weathervane fixed on a round ridge tile cap
The beautiful Steel Golfer Weathervane is a striking addition that will make your roof look more attractive. This elegant weathervane, made of steel, is a great way to add a beautiful and unique decoration to the top of your roof. As the wind blows gracefully, the fully functional golfer on the weathervane turns elegantly, showing where the breeze is coming from.
It might seem hard to put up a weathervane because you have to drill holes in the roof or put brackets on the roof or inside the roof space. But installing the Steel Golfer Weathervane is very easy and doesn't take much time. The weathervane is securely attached to a round ridge tile cap, which can be easily attached to the roof using traditional ways, such as mortar. This usual way of installing makes sure that the process is simple and easy.
We include a strong, flexible metal strap that can be used as a mechanical fix to give you more fitting options. The metal strap is easy to unwind and cut to the right length. The strap has a number of holes that make it easy to connect. You can use screws, nails, or other suitable fasteners to attach it to the roof structure.
Once the metal strap is in place and secure, skilled installers can use a traditional mortar bed to hide it, keeping the weathervane's artistic appeal. The Steel Golfer Weathervane is very flexible and can be put on many different types of roofs, such as turrets, towers, flat roofs, round roofs, and circular roofs. It can also be put on a garden structure as a beautiful creative show. It is easy to place, giving you a simple way to improve the look of your roof.

- 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.
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.
