  • Description

    The beautiful Steel Stag Weathervane is made to make your roof look even better with its colourful and ornate look. This steel weathervane has a round ridge tile base, which makes it easy to put together.

    The weathervane stands an impressive 35.3" (90cm) tall and has a circular ridge base that is 12" (30cm) in diameter and 10" (24cm) tall. Its beautiful look adds a bit of elegance to any roof and makes for a unique and eye-catching roof decoration, called a finial.

    This weathervane is not only a beautiful addition to your roof, but it also does something useful. The stag figurine is fully functional and will turn smoothly in the wind to show which way the breeze is blowing.

    The standard colour for the ridge tile fitting is terracotta, but we also have a variety of other colours and finishes to meet your personal taste and style.

    This stag weathervane is very easy to put up, the round ridge tile base is easy to put on the roof with mortar, so there's no need to drill holes or attach braces that could weaken the roof's structure. We also offer a strong and bendable metal strap as an additional way to fix things. The strap is easy to cut to size and has a number of holes that make it easy to connect it to the roof with screws, nails, or other suitable fasteners.

    Once the metal strap is safely in place, it can be hidden by putting on traditional mortar. This makes sure that the installation goes smoothly and looks good, adding to the general look of your roof.

    These stag ridge weathervanes can be used for almost anything. This weathervane can be put on turrets, towers, flat roofs, round roofs, circular roofs, or even as an ornament in the garden.

    The Steel Stag Weathervane is easy to put up and looks nice. It will give your roof a touch of style and make it work better.

  • 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.
