Stained Glass Repair & Restoration

The city of Columbia has a long and rich history. Established sometime during the 1700’s and later incorporated as a city in 1854, Columbia is one of the oldest cities in the Southeastern part of the United States. For decades, it has been home to religious groups from a wide range of denominations, including Baptist, Episcopal, Catholic, Lutheran, Greek Orthodox, and Jewish congregations. Although many of the city’s historic buildings were destroyed in the fire of 1865, some miraculously survived. Others were rebuilt and continue to hold service today. We see the preservation of these historic Columbia churches and their stained glass windows as a matter of upmost importance.

At Church Stained Glass Restoration, we are passionate about the conservation and preservation of historic stained glass windows. We provide church stained glass repair and restoration services in Columbia and are one of the top stained studios in the nation. If you are concerned about the condition of your church’s stained glass windows and would like to have them professionally inspected, we would love to hear from you.

Stained Glass Restoration for Columbia Churches, Chapels, and Cathedrals

Stained glass windows are one of the oldest and most beautiful art forms and are becoming increasingly rare. Many historic churches in the U.S. have lost their stained glass due to a lack of awareness about proper care and maintenance. Stained glass windows are quite sturdy by design, but nonetheless need to be properly cared for in order to remain in good condition. Approximately once every 50 to 75 years, stained glass needs to be restored so that it can remain in good health. Failing to complete this routine maintenance increases the risk of damage and degradation greatly.

At Church Stained Glass Restoration, we’ve mastered the skills and techniques required to conduct this delicate process. Over the years, we’ve brought hundreds of antique stained glass windows back to life and given them renewed strength and beauty. Our repair and restoration services are available to churches all throughout the cities of Columbia, Lexington, St. Andrews, and the surrounding areas.

Restoration Process for Columbia Church Stained Glass

The first step in the stained glass restoration process for your Columbia church should be an inspection. You can complete a basic evaluation on your own to determine if professional care is required. Simply stand at the base of each window and look upward, scanning careful for signs of degradation like sagging leading, cracks, concave pieces, and bowing. If you see any of these signs, you should contact a professional as soon as possible.

After we inspect and evaluate your stained glass, we will send you a proposal. This will describe our findings and also include the actions that need to be taken to repair your stained glass. Once you give us approval, we will begin the restoration process.

When possible, we prefer to complete the repairs in our workshop. This allows us to work more efficiently and with more freedom. The stained glass is cleaned, taken apart, repaired, and put back together. As conservationists, we always try to preserve as much of the original pieces as possible.

Once the repairs are complete, we will polish the stained glass, bring it back to your church, and carefully install it back in place. Now, you can enjoy your beautiful stained glass for another 100 years.
