The 3 Most Common Repairs For Church Stained Glass

Scottish Stained Glass Church Restoration Process for Houston

In an era where many churches built last century are beginning to reach an age at which their stained glass needs to be restored, we thought we would take some time to explain the church stained glass restoration process we go through to keep your cathedral glass looking good and free of repair for years to come.

Church Stained Glass Window Repairs/Restoration:

Softened/Bending Lead: As windows age, the leading will appear to sag slightly or even dramatically. In other cases, lead can be bent or broken from mishaps or at the hands of movers. At Scottish Stained Glass, we can re-lead the window to restore the window and add structural support, if desired, for a longer-lasting window.
Broken glass: When windows on your church break, they should be repaired immediately to avoid further damage that can occur due to loss of structural integrity. At Scottish Stained Glass, we have hundreds of color and texture options so we can match your antique glass identically.
Re-polishing: Due to age and environmental debris such as dust and airborne chemicals, stained glass windows can start looking dull after decades of exposure. We can re-polish dull windows and restore them to looking as bright and bold as the day they were first installed in your cathedral.
