Stained Glass Repair for Omaha Chapels, Churches & Houses of Worship

With a location right along the Missouri River, Omaha is one of the most beautiful cities in the Midwest. Here, all types of religious architecture can be found from historic 100 year old cathedrals to quaint modern day chapels.

These lovely establishments play an important role in defining Omaha’s identity, but are, unfortunately, vulnerable to inclement weather common in the Midwest. Hail, storms, and natural events cause devastating damage to the stained glass windows that communities love. Here at Church Stained Glass Restoration, we’re doing our part to preserve Omaha’s beautiful religious glass art. Through the act of repair and restoration, we remedy damages caused by hail, high speed winds, tornadoes, and natural aging. This is a service that we are honored to provide to Omaha’s invaluable religious institutions.

Our Process for Restoring Religious Stained Glass

Once we’re finished restoring your stained glass, your artwork will look as good as new. But there are several steps that must be taken in order to reach this point. First, we must come out to your church and inspect the stained glass in person. An in-person visit is truly the best way to assess the damage so that we can provide you with an accurate estimate and timeline for repairs. And it gives our team the information needed to develop a sound plan for repairs.

Once we’ve inspected the stained glass, we’ll send a proposal for you to review. This will disclose the options available to you and the parameters associated with each. Upon approval, we’ll commence work right away. If necessary, we’ll send orders for custom colors of glass and leading to be made so that the new materials match the originals. Then, we’ll remove the stained glass and take it to our workshop for restoration.

First, we begin by documenting and dating the panel. Then, we proceed by soaking and cleaning the stained glass. This must be done with care so that no hand-painted details are disturbed and no further damage is incurred. Then, we’ll carefully take apart each panel and discard all pieces that cannot be removed. However, we will be extremely conservative about this and will try to reuse as much of the historic glass as possible. Then, we’ll carefully reassemble the panel, cement it together, and clean it once again.

Finally the stained glass is brought back to your church and reinstalled. This is the most joyous moment. There is nothing more precious than seeing the look on our customers’ faces as they watch their newly stained glass shine in the glorious sunlight. Now, the stained glass is safe and can be enjoyed for yet another century.
