Resurrecting History

Old stained glass windows need to be inspected. Stained glass windows can endure the test of time when taken care of properly. Most stained glass windows need to be completely restored every 80-100 years. The restoration process is the only real way to maintain the timeless beauty of stained glass for generations to come.

Restoration is required when you see these signs...

> broken lead & solder joints

> missing cement grouting

> bowing of stained glass panels

> broken glass

When these signs are evident...

the only way to effectively eliminate them is to disassemble the panels and rebuild them with new lead, solder, and cement. This process preserves the historic glass and structural integrity of the window.
