  • Description

    This golfer weathervane has a captivating copper verdigris finish and a square ridge tile cap. The weathervane's unique design complements the roof while also serving a practical purpose. The golfer perched atop the weathervane gracefully turns in the wind to point in its direction.

    The weathervane ridge base measures 12" (30cm) x 12" (30cm) and is 11" (28cm) tall.

    The golfer weathervane is easy to mount because it doesn't require any brackets. When working on a roof, contractors may worry whether or not they will damage the waterproofing properties by making holes or installing brackets. This weather vane requires minimal effort to set up. The installation of the square ridge tile cap is straightforward and dependable because it can be cemented to the roof. As an included install option the metal strap located on the underside of the ridge base can be used to provide a mechanical fix. This strong and adaptable strap can be cut to fit and secured to the roof with nails or screws. Once the metal strap is fastened, it can be hidden during the standard mortar application for the ridge base. The installation process is made more secure and comfortable with this added feature.

    These golfer ridge weathervanes are adaptable, allowing for placement on a wide variety of roofs, from square to double hip to pyramid to tower to flat. You can also put them in your garden for decoration, making for an interesting focal point. This weathervane is a great way to add personality and curb appeal to your home's rooftop.

  • 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.
