Roof Spires and Finials
Finials are usually custom made to order in any specified size, pitch and material. These decorative items may also work as lightning protection if a rod is installed under a finial and connected to the ground (not standard).
We can paint or powder coat finials to match metal roofs. These items would be normally made out of a thicker gauge aluminum, such as 0.062″, welded and finished.
FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
What are finials for?Mostly, finials are used as a decorative addition to a roofline, but in some cases they can be used as lightning protection (if specified to be built that way).
Are custom designs available?Yes, our craftsmen can help you design and will custom manufacture a finial of your choice.
What is the best material for a finial?Anything that can be soldered or welded is optimal. A finial is the fisrt thing water will hit, and it is important that the finial is water-tight. Technically, some designs could be manufactured with steel / aluminum and riveted together, however, it is optimal to build those out of a thicker gauge aluminum / steel, welded then paint / powder coat.
How are finials installed?Normally, nailed down, fastened or soldered to a roof structure.
