Copper Weathervane Options. (Available on most copper weathervanes - shown here on Copper Goose #283)

 

What size cupola do I need? The general rule of thumb is to have at least one inch of cupola for every foot of your roof line. It is recommended to go one cupola size higher than the measurements suggest for a more appealing look.

 

Where are you located? Our seasonal showroom is located in Trenton, Maine. Our original factory/showroom is located at 852 Bar Harbor Rd. Our shipping and call center is located on Route 9 in Eddington, Maine. Stop on in and see our wide variety of weathervanes, cupolas and gifts.

 

How do I mount my weathervane? For copper weathervanes, you can either use a cupola or a mounting bracket and both are available for purchase. You do not need a roof mount for our weathervanes if you're using one of our cupolas - our cupolas come weathervane ready. Cast aluminum weathervanes come with a standard clutch base for mounting .. however, if using a cupola with your cast aluminum weathervane, the flat base would be your best option.

 

What are your weathervanes made of? We have two categories of Weathervanes - Copper and Cast Aluminum. The copper weathervanes include the copper figure, copper spacer balls, brass directionals, rod and ring.  The cast aluminum weathervanes include the figure, directionals, rod and attached base. All our weathervanes are high quality and built to last for years. 

 

How do you get the patina finish? We apply a patina acid via spray to accelerate the aging process. Applied patina will vary on each weathervane.

 

How will my cupola arrive? Your cupola(s) will arrive in 3 pieces - base, center and top. It is the customers responsibility to assemble the cupola. 

 

How long does it take to have my order shipped? Most of our products shipped within 4-7 business days. The exceptions are some of our larger cupolas. You will be notified of any delay in shipment. Please see item description for more specific shipping times.

 

Where are your products made? Many of our products are made right here in our factory in Maine. The rest of our products, including parts, are imported from overseas and throughout the USA. 

 

Will my weathervane survive in the harsh outdoors? Our copper weathervanes are built to last using 16 ounce copper and made to withstand all normal weather conditions. However, we cannot guarantee your weathervane will surive a hurricane, tornado, lightening strike or other such catastrophy. 

 

Do you make custom weathervanes? We currently are not taking any new custom orders. 

 

How do you ship your weathervanes and cupolas? We ship via UPS, Fed-Ex,Freight and USPS.
