Stained Glass Restoration

Indications that you may require window protection.

Leaded glass is slumped/curved inwards - This is a result of the lead being overheated and the forces of gravity pulling it downwards, it often happens when in direct sunlight over many years.

How protection helps slumping? - We use UV resistant polycarbonate which reduces the impact of heat damage. Furthermore, we design our protection systems in order to provide optimal airflow which keeps heat and moisture levels stable.

For more severe cases of slumping you may require some restoration services.

Church Stained Glass Window Restoration

Thank you for the restoration work that was carried out on our war memorial window. There have been many positive comments by members of the congregation about how vibrant the restored window looks. Furthermore, the careful way that you set about the work, your skilful craftsmanship, cheerful manner and co-operation with the property committee and myself was much appreciated.

frequently asked question

What our customers commonly ask

Can damaged stained glass be repaired without removal?

Provided the panel is accessible and in otherwise good condition, a small number of cracked pieces may sometimes be replaced in-situ, although the manipulation of the lead may be visible. If the lead has been bent or stretched out of shape, then the panel may need to be completely rebuilt.

My stained-glass window is bowed and deformed will it have to be replaced or can it be saved?

Your window can be saved, although it would mean its complete removal. It would then be stripped down leaving only the glass sections and completely rebuilt before being reinstalled.

Will stained-glass repairs be noticeable?

We will try to match the new glass to the existing as closely as possible, however, a precise match may not be possible in texture or colour. You can see an example of this on our restoration page. The new lead may have a slightly different profile to the original, and will have a more uniform satin black finish, different to the finish of the old lead.  If there are one or two minor cracks in an otherwise perfect panel that is well fitted, then leaving them alone would be our recommendation.

How much does it cost to make a stained glass design?

The cost of making a stained glass window depends on the size and complexity of your project. The larger the project, the more materials you'll need and the longer it will take to complete. However, we can provide a range of prices based on typical projects. As an example, we offer a range of prices for making stained glass designs for vestibule doors and other large projects for churches. Our most basic designs possibly start at around 350 for small door windows, and our most complex are priced up to 5000 or more. Again this is just an estimation, please call us for a free consultation to get a better idea on price.

Can you tell me how to seal my leaded glass window?

We can certainly give you free advice on how to seal any broken lead in your stained glass window, if it is a small crack then some simple materials and tools can do the trick. However, if there is extensive damage then we would suggest a full repair, and depending on how precious your window is to you we would also advise window protection.

Is there a difference between Leaded Glass and Stained Glass?

Most of the time “leaded glass” and “stained glass” are used interchangeably. The term leaded glass is a blanket term used for all windows that comprise of several pieces of glass which are held together by lead cames and putty. The term stained glass would imply that coloured glass is used in the window structure.

TESTIMONIALS

What our customers say

Stained Glass Restoration Fife

This panel was one of four nursery rhymes that hung in a bay window. It has been in the back of a cupboard for over 20 years. We are so pleased to have found Keith, such a skilled craftsman and a local business man, who has brought "Mary" to life again. We are all absolutely delighted to have her in our window where she belongs. Thank you Keith & Heather.

Stained Glass Design Perth

The colours are vibrant, rich and with a clarity depending on the outside light – even so they are calming and quiet. Over the years I have used the windows to offer men the possibility of a journey into an inner world. The “What does this image say to you question is answered , more often than not in a profound manner and it is a privilege to be part of that reflection. Despite the lack of religious imagery these windows still ’ pierce the darkness’ and because of that are deeply understood. By men of all faiths and none.
