Stained Glass Repair & Restoration

Madison is home to a number of beautiful historic churches with stained glass. With origins dating back to the early 1800’s, Madison is one of the oldest cities in the Midwest and many of its historic buildings still stand today. This includes the Gates of Heaven Synagogue, which is the eight oldest surviving synagogue in the country. Today, a number of religious groups call Madison home, including Lutheran, Catholic, Christian, Hindu, Quaker, Jewish, and Sikh congregations. Many of these groups are fortunate to hold service in historic churches with lovely stained glass windows.

Our repair and restoration services are available for all types of religious sites, including temples, chapels, cathedrals, synagogues, and mosques.

Stained Glass Restoration for Madison Churches, Chapels, and Cathedrals

Many churches are faced with the difficult decision of how to best maintain their stained glass windows. When deciding whether to invest in repairs, they wonder if it is worth the money and effort. However, if it is restored properly, stained glass can increase in value and give future generations something beautiful to enjoy.

The first reason you should consider restoring your church’s stained glass window is because it will help preserve them. This way, older pieces don’t deteriorate and eventually fall apart at a later date due to cracks, discoloration, and weaknesses in their structural integrity.

Furthermore, many people in the congregation feel sentimental about seeing the stained glass every Sunday morning. Others may want an opportunity to give back by donating funds or volunteering time themselves.

Our team of experts handle all aspects of church stained glass restoration, from repairs to installation. We offer a wide range of services for churches of all types. Our team is made up entirely out professional artists with years in the industry. We are eager to help preserve your beautiful works of art!

Restoration Process for Madison Church Stained Glass

The timeline for stained glass restoration in Madison varies from one project to the next. The process can take weeks or even months depending on how extensive the damage is, but once it’s all done your restored piece will be stronger and more beautiful than ever before.

When you first meet with our stained glass restoration experts, they will carefully examine and evaluate the condition of your church’s windows. They won’t just take a quick glance- they’ll be specifically examining discoloration and cracks to see what repairs need to be made. Once this inspection is complete, we provide you with an in depth report that outlines all potential repairs needed for your church’s most beloved art.

When stained glass windows need to be fully restored, it’s best for the work to take place in a studio where we have all of our equipment and materials. The window is first taken out from its original setting so that it can undergo cleaning safely without harming any other surrounding parts or surfaces. Then it is carefully taken apart.

During the repair process, damaged pieces are exchanged with new matching ones. Hand-painted details are recreated by an experienced painter. Then, the artisan places them back together using new lead caming and cement. Once everything has been cleaned up and polished up, the stained glass can be put on display again at its original location.

After the stained glass has been restored and fixed, it is returned to the church. Sometimes we will recommend having a protective covering placed over it so that future damage can be prevented. Once everything’s installed and covered up, this process is complete! Your church will now enjoy its beautiful stained glass for another 100 years or more.
