Choosing the Correct Size Weathervane

We have broken down our weathervane catalog into sizes including medium, standard, and large. Below are examples of different size weathervanes for different applications.

With a Cupola: If you are going to be using a cupola with your weathervane you must first choose the right size cupola. Once you have done this select a weathervane roughly the same size as the cupola, or within 6 inches either way. For example, if you decide on a 26" cupola you will want to choose a weathervane size between 20" and 30" long. 

Without a Cupola: The most important thing to remember when selecting a weathervane for any application is that a weathervane, like anything else, appears smaller as you get farther away from it. The photos below are a few examples of our four available weathervane sizes mounted on various structures. Notice how the smaller the weathervane is, the closer to the ground it should be.
