How to Choose the Correct Weathervane Hardware

Installing a weather vane is by far one of the easiest DIY projects around your home or business. Although commonly added to the peak of a roof as a decorative item, the weathervane can actually be mounted in any number of useful locations.

Before purchasing your weathervane hardware, select the perfect location and measure carefully to ensure your weathervane will have the room it requires to move freely. Standard size weathervanes can be mounted just about anywhere from your garden to the top of a cupola. The estate weathervanes are typically mounted on the roofs of larger homes or barns, but they can go anywhere as long as you have the correct weathervane hardware.

For installation on a peaked roof or surface, use an aluminum roof mount that adjusts to the roof’s pitch. This mount attaches with 8 screws and will hold any standard weathervane. If your roof has a four sided peak, do not use the adjustable mount. Instead, purchase the 4 sided roof mount for increased stability.

If you are installing on the side of the house or another flat, vertical surface, a side mount is used. Side mounts vary in horizontal length to ensure your weathervane has sufficient room to move, so take that into consideration. Also, be aware of any overhangs, such as a porch, balcony or eaves, to allow the proper vertical clearance.

Weathervanes are also quite attractive when installed as a standalone unit using a full size garden pole. This two-pronged pole is mounted in the ground and can hold both the standard and estate vanes. For extra height, an extension rod is available and can be used with any of the hardware.

In addition to the basic hardware, decorative roof mounts are readily available to enhance the look of your weathervane, so be sure to consider all your options before making the purchase.
