Ridge dragons installed on period building

original style ridge dragonThese fantastic ridge dragons are installed on a character period property with a clay tiled roof. The property features several roof elevations with gable end roofs. The customer was looking for something decorative to decorate and add character to the Gable ends as previously there was architectural detail in the form of wooden roof finials but they had rotted through years of weathering

Original style ridge dragons finished in a weathered terracotta colour was the requirement to add detail and a decorative feature to the gable end so we produced two ridge dragons that had a more classic and original style design to work with the roof fittings and style. The roof tiles installed on the roof were a mixed clay brindle colour so there was quite a lot of colour variation on the roof ranging from darker terracotta clay roof tiles to lighter terracotta clay roof tiles and everything in between. The clay ridge tiles are more uniform in colour however but have a little weathering detail themselves and the dragons work really well alongside them

As you can see from the pictures there is some natural moss and lychen that is growing on the brickwork and encroaching up to the roof and that combined with the traditional style clay roof and other original features really does set the ridge dragons off nicely and they really look the part on the roof. The customer was absolutely delighted with their ridge dragons and later sent us a collection of photos when they was installed. The photos show the dragons installed on the gable ends from ground level and there are some close-ups of the dragons showing them installed with mortar fixing and where natural moss is taking a hold on the roof and naturally weathering and aging them
