Designed to emphasize the apex of a roof, gable, spire, or cupola, copper finials are typically placed on the tallest part of a building to accent its height. Finials are a great way to add a distinctive flair to any roofline, piercing the sky with their elegant spires. At Valley Forge Cupolas, our beautiful collection of copper finials is inspired by royalty, Arthurian legend and famous cities. Take a look at some of our favorite finials below to see why finials have enjoyed tremendous popularity for centuries!
Copper is a fantastic metal, able to form and hold complex shapes while maintaining durability and strength. It is also extremely corrosion resistant. Over time, copper develops a beautiful patina that protects it from the elements, allowing it to last for decades. Copper is a lightweight metal, so our finials are easy to mount and don't put a strain on your roof.
These two elegant spires capture the classic Victorian finial styles. As elegant and mysterious as its namesake, Morgan Le Fay, the Morgana finial is available in three heights: 28", 40", and a breathtaking 53". Our tallest finial, the Morgana makes a bold, dramatic statement on any roofline. On the right we have our newest finial, the Aragon. Available in 28" or 40", its thin, tapered height is the perfect complement to traditional homes.
Reminiscent of the lances carried by valiant knights, our Avalon and Lancelot finials are inspired by Arthurian legend. The petite Avalon is perfect for small garages, sheds or cabins. The Lancelot finial fits nicely on our small to medium cupolas or homes with short rooflines.
Our finials are available in a variety of finishes, including verdigris. If you don't want to wait for patina to develop naturally, or want to be sure of a uniform patinated color, the verdigris finish is an excellent option.
Many of our beautiful copper finials are now available with decorative copper roof mounts, shown above. When selecting the height of your finial, factor in whether it will be mounted directly to your roof or on top of a cupola. Determining the right size finial for your home will depend on a combination of factors, including the height and length of your roof and distance perspective. The experts at Valley Forge Cupolas can answer all your finial questions and help you choose the perfect height for your home.
