  • Description

    The Copper Verdigris Golfer Weathervane is a beautiful work of art that will make any roof look better. This fancy weathervane is shaped like a golfer and is made of copper with a beautiful verdigris finish. It not only adds a bit of elegance to your roof, but it also serves a useful purpose by showing which way the wind is blowing as the golfer turns gracefully with the wind.

    This weathervane is attached to a round ridge tile capping. It is 36.5 inches (93 cm) tall, which is a good size. The spherical ridge base, which is 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter and 10 inches (24 cm) high, makes sure that the installation is safe and stable.

    We know how important it is to keep a roof from leaking, unlike other installers who may need to drill holes or connect brackets. That's why we made this golfer weathervane so that it's easy to put up. The round ridge tile capping fitting is easy to put on the roof with standard mortar, making the process smooth and easy. We also offer an easy-to-use mechanical fix: a metal strap that can be unwound and cut to size. This strong strap has a number of holes that let it be fastened securely to the roof with screws, nails, or other fixings.

    To keep things looking nice, our smart design lets installers hide the metal strap by putting down a standard mortar bed. With this flexible way to put it up, our golfer ridge weathervane can be put on turrets, towers, flat roofs, round roofs, and even circle roofs. Also, it can be used for more than just roofs because it can be put up in the garden for decoration.

    The Copper Verdigris Golfer Weathervane is easy to put up and has a beautiful look that will catch your eye. You can improve the way your roof looks and get a useful wind direction feature at the same time.

  • 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.
