    You can improve the look of your roof and give it a touch of class with this steel stag weathervane. This weathervane is made of sturdy steel and is mounted on a square tile capping to serve as a distinctive and eye catching roof ornament. It's not just for show; the stag spins in the wind to indicate which way the wind is blowing, making it a fully functional weathervane as well.

    The height of the weathervane is 35 inches (89 cm), and its square ridge base is 12 inches (30 cm) on a side and 11 inches (28 cm) in height.

    This stag weathervane has an easy and alternative installation process. Installation of the fitting, a square roof tile capping, is simple and requires only mortar, guaranteeing a safe and watertight roof. In addition, a metal strap can be used as a mechanical fix if desired. This durable and adaptable strap can be sized to fit the ridge and fastened in place with screws, nails, or other fasteners. During the ridge base installation process, the metal strap can be tucked away out of sight, adding an extra layer of security.

    These stag ridge weathervanes can be mounted on a wide range of roof styles, from flat to square to double hip to pyramidal to tower. They are also attractive enough to be used as garden decorations. Whether you place it on your roof or in your garden, this weathervane is sure to be a conversation starter.

  • 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.
