We will visit you to either repair on site or to remove your window for repair.
This process could take between 2 to 8 weeks depending on the scale and complexity.
We will deliver your repaired stained glass and install it, using the required materials to secure it in the opening.
A before and after of our stained glass restoration
We were contracted by the team at Camperdown House to restore all of the windows that made up the cupula (dome shaped roof). Due to the unique shape of the window openings, we created a full risk assessment before work commenced. We then carefully extracted all panels and transported them back to our stained glass studio. We made sure to save as much as the original artwork as possible and worked hard to replicate the broken pieces. As you can see in the before and after pictures, it's truly amazing what some TLC can do to stained glass.
Our stained glass restoration process
We have experienced many difficult situations during our time in the industry, which is why we can quickly and effectively resolve any problems that arise. If needed, we will compile a detailed and comprehensive Risk Assessment for our works. We take all steps to ensure that the surrounding structure is not put under any undue stress or pressure.
We treat every surface we touch with care because historic windows deserve that respect. We take extra steps to make our cleaning products safe for your artwork and do most of the work off-site. However, we can advise you on particular occasions where we think an on-site repair and cleaning is required.
A big part of our process, especially for severely damaged windows is in the analysis of the artwork. We have extensive experience in the reconstruction of broken pieces belonging to many historic periods, this allows us to accurately replicate the style needed.
When painted sections are broken and pieces missing, the restoration becomes replication. After a thorough inspection of the broken sections is made to determine, types of paint and methods of application, do we move to producing test pieces. Once satisfied that the test pieces match the original, only then do we move to producing the replica.

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.
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.
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.
