Stained Glass Window Repair
Stained glass windows that are in need of repair have broken glass pieces, damaged lead, or flexing (rattling or loose fitting). In most cases, these windows can be fixed in-place and do not need to be removed from their openings at all.
However, most stained glass studios do not offer repairs, and even more do not offer on-site repairs. But the nature of my business allows me flexibility and allows me to offer on-site glass repair, which saves you money and time. Most broken stained glass windows are fixable and do not need to be replaced. I save you the time, hassle, and risk of removing the broken window yourself and taking it in for repair.
Stained Glass Window Restoration
Sometimes stained glass windows are too old or too damaged to be repaired on-site; this is where restoration comes in. One problem with older/antique windows is that the lead stretches and sags. Often the putty that keeps the window waterproof and from rattling shrinks and falls out. These problems, common in older windows, can be solved through restoration of the window.
I restore the window to its original condition and renew its strength and durability while keeping the design and character of the original window the same. I strive to match any damaged glass in order to maintain the original appearance of the window.
Custom Glass Painting by Gladys
For windows that need more detail than plain stained glass can provide, I work with longtime friend and stained glass painter Gladys, who has experience painting residential, commercial, and religious stained glass windows for over 20 years. You can see some of her work here.
