At Scottish Stained Glass we feel it is our duty to preserve and protect these works of art for all time.
Beautiful and historic windows have been repaired and restored over the years by Scottish Stained Glass in Colorado. While we know most stained glass companies turn away this sort of work, we are happy to repair or restore anything from the wonderful historic cathedral window to the homemade piece of stained glass your mom made and gave you for Christmas.
Normally if a stained glass window is less than 50 years old it can be repaired simply and inexpensively
If the lead camping is still in good condition then it`s just a question of replacing the broken piece. For windows over 50 years old a full restoration may be required. This involves taking the panels completely apart and then saving all the glass to be reused. All the lead will be replaced and as the panel is rebuilt the old glass is reused and any broken pieces are matched for color and texture. The result is a stained glass window that will last another lifetime.
The old masters of stained glass worked entirely by hand and with glass cutters and equipment which was far inferior to what we have today. Despite these difficulties, they produced stained glass of incredible beauty and at Scottish Stained Glass we feel it is our duty to preserve and protect these works of art for all time.
Antique stained glass restoration of windows 50 – 150 years old
Restoration of antique glass requires both passion and patience. Perhaps the most difficult of all stained glass related tasks, a full restoration of a window involves taking the panel completely apart, cleaning all the glass and then putting the panel back together using all new lead camping. The results are incredible. You can actually see the way the original glass looked when it was brand new. Most of the glass colors and especially textures are no longer made so preservation of these relics is the only way to continue to enjoy their beauty for generations to come.
At Scottish we simply love restoration projects. Often these can be expensive for a church to contemplate and planning the work on a schedule to suit the annual budget is just one of the aspects we can help you with.
