Stained Glass Restoration for San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley 

The San Francisco area of California is an eclectic mix of old and new religions but many traditional churches also dot The Bay Area.   This includes small chapels, synagogues, and cathedrals throughout the Berkeley and Oakland Hills. From the Mission District to San Jose and Emeryville to The Castro these lovely, aging churches are filled with stunning but old stained glass. Whether in synagogues or cathedrals, many of these stained glass windows were made over a century ago and are some of the most amazing in the country.  The problem is, stained glass begins to deteriorate at about 75-100 years.  This means San Francisco’s beloved church stained glass is in danger of being lost forever if not restored.

The Church Stained Glass Restoration Process

Here at Church Stained Glass Restoration we have repaired and restored myriad church windows over the last two decades. Restoring stained glass to its original beauty is something we love and are very skilled in.  It is a detailed and often complicated process.  For an in-depth look at the process look here. The most critical part of the process of restoration is our initial assessment.  It includes our thorough inspection and detailed report.  This will give you the information you need to understand and make decisions about your upcoming stained glass project.  The assessment kicks off your entire restoration process for your San Francisco, Oakland, or Berkeley area church, chapel, or synagogue.  This assessment includes: 

  • A restoration cost-benefit analysis
  • A project timeline from start to finish
  • A comprehensive estimate of repairs

In our time as restorers of stained glass, we have discovered the critical information your congregation needs to make the most informed decision about your stained glass restoration or repair.  We cover all of this in the assessment.  This will not only help your San Francisco religious organization make good choices about whether or not to proceed with the restoration but also start the fundraising process.
