How to Get Started with Church Stained Glass Restoration

June 26, 2020 in Aggrigate, Church Stained Glass Restoration

Churches have always utilized stained glass for portraying important biblical messages and teachings. With inspiring stained glass features housed within churches from around the nation, it’s always important to appreciate the significance your windows can bring to your congregation. Stained glass windows can truly inspire and become a considerable part of the worship process. Making sure your stained glass is properly preserved can provide numerous benefits for your church, congregation, and society. Church stained glass restoration offers an incredible way to keep your stained glass for generations to come.

The Church Stained Glass Restoration Process

When you start to notice any signs of deterioration among your stained glass windows, it’s important to see if your stained glass is in need of restoration. Signs of deterioration can include cracked glass, warped glass, convex/concave glass, missing glass, a white film appearing on your glass, discoloration, yellowing plexiglass, softened lead came, brittle joints, and much more. Once you discover these signs, the next step is finding the right stained glass studio for restoration. Vetting your studio should always include research, asking for recommendations from jobs of similar size, and viewing portfolios. The right restoration studio can add at least another century of product life to your stained glass windows. The restoration process typically takes about a month per window, depending on the size. If your stained glass was damaged by vandalism or severe weather, you may qualify for an insurance claim.

Churches across the nation understand the importance of their treasured stained glass features. Their stained glass windows often provide wide-reaching inspiration for both their congregation members and clergy members. In order to ensure your religious stained glass continues to offer inspiration for future generations to come, restoration is a necessary process. Stained glass restoration offers a multitude of different benefits for any church.

The Church Stained Glass Restoration Process

When you start to see signs of deterioration on your stained glass, it’s important to begin the restoration process as soon as possible. This process begins with an on-site assessment of your stained glass windows to see what exactly caused the deterioration and damage. The assessment will include a custom-tailored restoration plan, cost-benefit analysis, and project estimate. Once you decide to start restoration, we’ll remove your stained glass, install temporary windows, and carefully transport them back to our studio. We’ll soak your stained glass in our proprietary bath soak for up to two weeks in order to remove all the grime and dirt that’s built up over the past century. This also allows us to easily take apart your stained glass so we can restore it piece by piece. We always take the conservative approach and save as much of the original as possible. New lead came is also created and safety glass is often installed for better protection. You’ll be stunned once we reinstall your church’s newly restored stained glass.
