Elevate your rooftop allure with the delightful labrador dog weathervane, expertly fashioned from lustrous copper. This enchanting weathervane not only imparts a sense of refinement but also functions as a dynamic wind indicator, animated by the whimsical rotation of the canine silhouette. What distinguishes this weathervane is its ingenuity in attachment, the ridge tile fitting. This fitting, available in various angles accommodating diverse roof pitches, empowers you to select the optimal inclination harmonising with your roof's design. Bid farewell to the complexities of affixing brackets.

The preference for a ridge tile fitting over brackets is grounded in pragmatism. The potential for roof leaks and aesthetic disruptions associated with drilling holes and attaching brackets are circumvented. Installation of the dog weathervane is mortar compatible, promising a secure and uniform integration with your roof. A sturdy mechanical fix takes form in an adjustable metal strap. Tailorable in length with multiple mounting points, this strap customises and, once securely fastened, discreetly conceals beneath the ridge base, out of sight as traditional mortar secures the fitting, delivering both a steadfast foundation and peace of mind for installers.

This adaptable dog weathervane is not confined to rooftops, it can grace diverse structures, including gable ends, homes, cottages, sheds, workshops, and summer homes. Its charm extends beyond the rooftop, transforming your garden into an enchanting space with intricate design and eye catching allure. Opt for the labrador weathervane to infuse your rooftop or garden with elegance, functionality, and a dash of whimsy, reveling in the seamless blend of form and function.

Brackets & Fixings

There are various methods for installing weathervane finials:

Traditional mortar bedding

Weathervane finials can be installed using the same process employed for ridge tiles, using standard mortar bedding. If the weathervane finial is tall, heavy, or requires enhanced stability, a supplementary mechanical fixing method can be utilised in conjunction with the mortar bed installation.

Mechanical fixing strap and mortar bedding

In this installation method, a galvanized metal strap is discreetly attached 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. Equipped with 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 hide it from view by applying traditional mortar bed resulting in a seamless and tidy appearance.

Dry fixing

An alternative method for affixing finials to the roof is the dry fixing approach. 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 contact us to determine if this weathervane finial design can be adapted to be compatible with your chosen system.
