WeatherVane Frequently Asked Questions
What size Weathervane should I get for my Cupola?
Most of our Standard Size Weathervanes are the perfect size for our Cupolas. However, some Weathervane figures are smaller than others so be sure to check the figure size. Should you order a larger sized Cupola, the Estate Series is recommended. Please call for help or assistance in choosing the perfect Weathervane for your Cupola.
How long will the polished Copper finish stay shiny on my Weathervane?
Depending on your location, usually within a few months, the copper will lose its shine and start to naturally tarnish. We can coat your Polished Weathervane with a product that protects and maintains the polished finish of your copper Weathervane for approximately 7 years to prolong the look of raw copper.
Do the weathervanes require assembly?
Yes our weathervanes do require some assembly. Instructions are included. All you need is a screwdriver & the parts simply slide onto the assembly rod and are secured by setscrews. We do suggest a thread-locking adhesive when assembling the rods.
What size weathervane should I purchase?
We have several different sizes to choose from: The Garden Weathervanes are smaller versions of our classic Standard Size line and are specifically designed for mounting on smaller structures or for use in the garden. The more traditional Standard Size Weathervanes are designed to fit most homes, garages, or gazebos. Our largest line, The Estate Series, is designed to complement larger homes, barns or commercial buildings.
