Can we design our own weathervane?
If you do not find a design to suit your particular requirements then we can provide you with a completely new bespoke weathervane design based upon your own ideas. To take advantage of this service all you need do is contact us with your proposals with photographs, pictures, descriptions and we will send you a design. For this we require a £25 advance payment, which will be deducted from the total cost. Prices for commissioned designs can start from as little as £90, depending upon the amount of detail.
Only when you are completely happy with all the bespoke weathervane design details will we go ahead and make your weathervane. If you get stuck for ideas just contact us and we will be more than happy to help.
Are your Weathervanes suitable for Commercial applications?
We have been involved in creating weathervanes for prestigious buildings in the public and private sectors.
Our clients have included Mowlem, Baratt Homes, Wates Homes, McCarthy and Stone, Bournemouth Borough Council, Poundbury estates (Dorchester) and English Heritage.
All these projects have taken place in close liaison with the architects who have specified various materials including copper, brass and bronze.
Edwardian lift shaft - Ramsgate
This refurbished Edwardian lift shaft, which takes people from the seafront to the cliff top, has recently been reopened to the public.
Commissioned by English Heritage Dorset Weathervanes provided the cast bronze replica weathervane which sits on top, the design was taken from the original drawings.
Why do I need it galvanised?
All our weathervanes are zinc-primed and powder coated black gloss to give a hard wearing finish. If however you live neasr the coast we recommend galvanising as an extra protection against the corrosive sea air, it is still black gloss finish. We also recommend galvanising if the weathervane is to be sited in an inaccessible spot.
