The life of a restaurant manager is busy. It may seem difficult to find time to devote to maintenance issues, but there are some problems you just can’t ignore – like when your stained glass windows start to fall apart.

Stained glass windows make a great addition to a restaurant. They look elegant and can reinforce the high-end nature of an upscale establishment. But, once they reach a certain age, they need maintenance in order to stay in good condition.

Our stained glass restoration service helps Colorado Springs restaurants preserve their stained glass and keep it in optimal condition. In this article, we’ll explain a little bit more about how this process works.

How Can You Tell if Your Stained Glass Needs to be Repaired?

Most of the time, owners of stained glass aren’t aware of the poor condition of their art until problems start to show up. The windows lose color or clarity or pieces start to fall out. However, most of this can be avoided with routine self-inspection. Here are some signs that your restaurant’s stained glass may need professional attention:

  • Age: Stained glass windows usually require some sort of cleaning or repair at an age of 50-75 years.
  • Discoloration: Cloudy-looking glass, chalky colored leading, and yellowing plexiglass are all signs that your Colorado Springs stained glass needs restoration.
  • Breakage: If pieces of your stained glass windows are falling or the metal bars are coming off, you need to have your window repaired right away.
