Weathervanes are handcrafted vanes with 14-guage solid steel and 3 protective coatings to preserve their beauty. They are zinc plated, powder coated with an antique copper vein powder which is baked on, and clear coated. These weathervanes are quality where it counts! This finish gives our vanes the appearance of the old-time hammered copper look at a fraction of the cost. They have the most heavy duty endurance available today!
