For churches throughout the nation that are ready to restore their religious stained glass, it can be intimidating when you learn of the costs associated with this process. Restoration is an expensive process since it is really labor-intensive and requires extensive training and experience to properly execute. Proper restoration can take around a month for a single window alone. While these costs may catch you off guard, there are some great benefits that make it well worth the price tag.
Understanding the Benefits of Stained Glass Investment for Restoration
Stained glass investment is worthy of restoration because of the equity it creates. Unrestored stained glass always appraises for much less while a restored stained glass feature is drastically valued for more. Very similar to renovating a home, investing in your stained glass can provide better overall value by restoring the antique value. Restoration is actually required every 75 to 100 years due to natural deterioration. This process may be required sooner if your stained glass has experienced damage from vandalism or severe weather. Stained glass investment is much more affordable than replacement, offering a cost-effective option for your church. If you want to properly preserve your stained glass, then restoration is your only option for achieving this. Unfortunately, stained glass will continue to deteriorate until a replacement is required if you choose to forego restoration.
