Restoration for your family heirlooms.

Restoration for your family heirlooms.

With our expert stained glass restoration, Denver stained glass lovers can rest assured that their stained glass pieces can receive the love and care they need to bring them back to their original glory.

Do you have a stained glass window or door in your home which has become damaged or even grime encrusted over the years? Do you have any stained glass family heirlooms such as Tiffany lamps or other stained glass objects that are in need of repair?

No matter how old or what the damage, the likelihood is that we can restore your piece. We would have to take a look at it to tell you which restoration method we’d use and how much it would be cost. But we can assure you, with stained glass restoration, Denver residents will have a stained glass piece that is worth many times more than if they simply threw it away and had us create a brand new replica. This is something people consider, because they are afraid the cost of the restoration will be prohibitive, and they wonder if they shouldn’t just commission a brand new stained glass piece.

Other potential clients worry that if we do restore the piece, if we have to replace the lead strips (caming) or add in new glass to replace original glass that has fallen out or broken over the years, it will no longer look the same.

But the techniques we use for stained glass restoration, Denver stained glass owners are discovering, will return to them a piece that looks as old as the original, with the same darkened leads and the same colors of glass. We have access to hundreds of colors and textures and special finishes of glass, and we source what we need from the top quality glass manufacturers around the world. So the chances are very good that we can match the original glass in your stained glass antique or family heirloom.

Here is a partial list of the things that can happen to a piece of stained glass over the years, all of which we are able to address and repair:

1. The caming has become brittle or damaged and no longer holds the glass pieces solidly in place.

2. The entire window is no longer flat, but bowed.

3. Any of the glass pieces are cracked, chipped, or missing entirely.

4. The glass rattles in the wind because it has become loosened over time.

5. The stained glass piece is grime encrusted over the years and you aren’t sure how to safely clean it.

If you are looking for expert stained glass restoration, Denver or anywhere up and down the Front Range, please give us a call with any questions or concerns. We take stained glass restoration as a serious and important part of our business and we will give your piece the love and care that it needs.
