Welcome to the weathervane shop

weathervaneThe weathervane designs include cockerels, dragons, hunting/shooting, owl weathervanes and many more. By default they come with standard fittings and poles to fit them to roofs, buildings and in the garden. We do offer a range of custom exclusive ridge tile fittings so that weathervane can be installed along the ridge line on a range of different roofs. The weathervanes feature the NSEW and the direction arrow to show which way the wind is blowing. When fitting the NSEW is adjusted using an allen key so that NSEW faces the correct direction

Weathervane maintenance

So you have purchased a weathervane - A question we often get asked is "Is my weathervane maintenance free?" Well, if you notice that the weathervane isn't spinning freely there could be a few things wrong. The first place to inspect is the rod\shaft, is it free from debris or any other obstructions?. You can check the shaft\rod at the point where the weathervane top is secured. There should be a locking screw that secures the weathervane top\crest to the rod to prevent it from flying off but equally if the locking screw is done up too tight or if it was fitted slightly incorrectly originally it may prevent the weathervane from spinning freely. To remedy this simply loosen the tightening screw and test the weathervane top moves around freely or remove the crest altogether to check that the top of the rod\shaft isn't damaged (The rod should be pointed so it offers little resistance as the weathervane spins)

Is the weathervane looking in good condition or have the elements eroded away it's nice pristine finish? Weathervanes that have painted or powder coat finishes although durable are susceptible to weathering over the years and you may spot that flaking and even rusting can occur. To bring back the weathervane to it's best you can opt to remove the weathervane and sand or wire brush the lose flaking parts and abrade the rust. It can the be primed using a metal primer and finished in a colour of your choice in an exterior metal paint. One such product that has been used to great effect is hammerite direct to rust metal paint. Painting regularly will keep the weathervane in tip top condition. You can also use WD40 on most types of weathervanes to give it an oily coating which will give it a little extra protection from the elements
