Weathervane On Roof

Maintenance work being carried out at St. Tathan’s Church, St. Athan, South Wales

For centuries, weathervanes have kept people in touch with the elements, signalling those shifts in the wind, which bring changes in the weather.

Using modern rope techniques, we are able to gain quick and safe access to your weathervane, where we can undertake cleaning, painting and re-gilding.

We can also design, manufacture and erect a new weathervane of your choice, together with the associated lightning protection required.

Our weathervane services include:

  • Checking of bolts (Important following times of high winds)
  • Removal of a defective weathervane
  • A specialist repair service
  • Weathervane re-gilding and painting
  • Design & Manufacture vanes (All designs can be made to order)
  • Erection of the vane

Our experienced and qualified teams are fully trained to work-at-height and gain safe access to weathervanes. We provide a complete service for working at height including both conventional scaffolding and specialised rope access techniques. Rope access is a cost effective solution, ideal for those ‘hard to reach’ places or where disruption needs to be kept to a minimum. This method is particularly suitable for the inspection of, and maintenance on monuments, church towers and steeples. We have seen an increase in demand from our client base for this specialised service. We are commissioned to design, manufacture weathervanes for churches around the UK.
