3 Common Stained Glass Restorations

Scottish Stained Glass Church Restoration Process for Denver

In this day and age, we are finding that many churches built last century are beginning to need their stained glass to be restored. So, we thought we would take some time today to explain a little bit about the stained glass restorations we do and how they will help your glass look better now and for years to come.

Church Stained Glass Window Repairs/Restoration

Softened/Bending Lead: As stained glass window age, one issue churches often have is lead bending from the weight over time. In other cases, lead can be bent or broken accidentally or when/if the glass is moved. At Scottish Stained Glass, we can re-lead the window to restore the window and add structural support as well to help a restored window last even longer.
Broken Glass Replacement: It is important to replace broken windows on your church immediately to avoid further damage that can occur due to loss of structural integrity. Color and texture matching is no problem for us since we stock and carry hundreds of color and texture options.
Re-polishing: The air is packed with environmental debris such as dust and smog and event and airborne chemicals. These carcinogens are just as harmful to glass as they are to humans and can make your church’s stained glass windows look dull after decades of exposure. At Scottish Stained Glass Denver, we will re-polish dull windows and restore them to looking as bright and gorgeous as the day they were first installed in your cathedral.
