dragon installed on the roof of a grand victorian property

These photos were sent in by a delighted customer showing work in progress on their grand Victorian property. The photos were taken after the ridge dragon had been fitted to show how the building works were coming along and it shows the dragon finial in place on the gable end overlooking the front garden. The scale of the ridge dragon looks perfect for the size of the property as is it a good sized 3 storey property and really looks in keeping with the scale

The Victorian property features a roof which has been roofed with slates and has crested ridge tiles and plain ridge tiles. The crested ridges tiles and plain ridge tiles have been installed adjacent to each other along the ridge tile run to create a decorative feature and the dragon is the focal piece on the gable. The building also hosts other original finials and has a firewall or parapet as they are also called and a large chimney stack with original chimney pots

Although this set of photos show the scaffolding up and work being carried out by the roofers and builder you really get a feel for how good and eye catching the ridge dragon looks. It certainly looks at home there and looks like it could been there for well over a 100 years as it was more commons in the Victorian and Edwardian era for decorative finials such as dragons, gargoyles and grotesques to decorate grand properties which added architectural details to the roof
