Weather Vanes

 
weather vane on a roofWeather vanes have been around for a long time. The earliest we could find was in the ancient Greek and was on the tower of winds. There have been found bronze weather vanes in were made by the vikings in the 9th century.

The function of the weather vane was to help the farmers. Determining the wind direction was part of their daily routine and could mean that the weather was good for certain things to do or in case of rain to wait till the wind came from an other direction.

 

At this point in time we do not need a weather vane anymore. The modern weather and wind forecast on radio and TV gives us all the information we need. The weather vane we use now has a decorative function.
We will only show wind or weather vanes with a customer review of 4 stars and up since we like to advise on high quality products only.

TIP! Make sure to find the right size and quality weather vane. A weather vane for a roof top requires different material and size then one for on a lower building like a chicken coop, garden stake or kitchen roof

Here is a list of the weather vanes we will review for you.
