Church Stained Glass Restoration in Albuquerque

Today, numerous churches throughout the U.S. are facing issues with the deterioration of their historic stained glass. Churches that have been around for some time possess stained glass windows that are close to 100 years old, which is usually the time they begin to fall apart. Finding a qualified repair stained glass restoration studio in Albuquerque or anywhere else is a difficult task, but we’re here to help.

Stained glass as an art form has been around for quite some time. However, since its beginnings, it has changed greatly. Many of the old techniques used to create stained glass are no longer used by mass production companies. In fact, very few stained glass studios have the knowledge or experience required to repair delicate historic stained glass windows. Stained glass restoration is a time intensive process, and it requires a high level of skill.

With knowledge acquired from expert stained glass craftsmen in Glasgow, Scotland, we are well versed in all forms of traditional glass making and are highly competent in executing repairs of all types.

Stained Glass Restoration for Albuquerque Churches, Chapels, and Cathedrals

When you make the decision to restore your Albuquerque church’s stained glass, you are making a choice that not only benefits your congregation, but also the surrounding community.

Furthermore, stained glass windows heighten the experience of those who gather in your church’s rooms and corridors for worship. Gazing up at the beautifully lit stained glass during service is a calming, spiritually moving experience. Preserving your stained glass can help keep your church’s culture and identity alive.

Restoration Process for Albuquerque Church Stained Glass

Whether we are restoring the stained glass in your Albuquerque church, temple, chapel, or cathedral, we will work hard to ensure that you stay informed throughout the entire process. We commence each project with a site visitation. This gives us the chance to personally introduce ourselves as well as evaluate the condition of your stained glass windows. Once we’ve completed the evaluation, we’ll compile a proposal for your church board to review and discuss, which will include the details of your inspection and possible options for repair.

Once you’ve given us the approval to proceed, we’ll return to your church and begin work right away. To save on costs, we’ll try to complete as many of the repairs as we can onsite. However, doing repairs in this manner does impose some restrictions on what we can accomplish. If it is in your best interest, we will remove your stained glass and complete the rest of the repairs at our studio. Here, we can carefully clean and polish the stained glass as well as replace any seriously damaged materials.

After we’ve gone through the tedious process of taking apart your stained glass, replacing the damaged pieces, and recreating hand-painted details, we will assemble the whole piece back together and return it to your church, where it belongs. If you wish, we can protect your historic windows and all the work that’s been done to them by installing a piece of low-E safety glass over the top.

At this point, all repairs are complete and you can get back to enjoying the beauty of your stained glass!
