As stained glass begins to age and deteriorate, your congregation may notice unfortunate bulging or sagging in your Colorado Springs cathedral’s stained glass. This common occurrence tends to take place around the 75 year to 100 year mark when stained glass is due for renovation. Proper restoration is required in order to repair these signs of deterioration and for future generations to really enjoy these antique pieces as well.

Colorado Springs Cathedral Stained Glass Restoration Process

Colorado Springs cathedral stained glass restoration beings with a comprehensive assessment that includes cost-benefit analysis, project priorities and size, as well as a projected cost estimate. This assessment also determines all the root causes that have affected the integrity of your religious stained glass, causing it to bulge, sag, become concave, and convex. If you decide to go through with the restoration, we transport your stained glass windows back to our studio for proper restoration. Your stained glass is soaked in a proprietary soap blend for up to two weeks in order to remove all the dirt that has been built up for the last century and for our glass artisans to be able to remove each piece individually. We replace each damaged piece of glass with a corresponding, matching piece from our large inventory. If we don’t have the perfect glass addition, we have one custom blown. For painted glass features, our artisans hand replicate your original design for perfect cohesion. We recreate the lead came as well with a mixture of tin for additional strength. The stained glass is set with black cement in order to fill any cracks.
