Church Stained Glass Restoration
When To Get Your Houston Church’s Stained Glass Restored
Stained glass is an incredibly durable material but like most things, it will steadily decline. Pieces of glass may crack, chip or fall out. The wood frames and leading on stained glass can sag or bend under the weight of gravity and little by little time will start to take its toll. Another constant source of damage to stained glass church windows is the environment: chemicals in the air, pollution and UV rays all degrade either the stained glass itself or its supporting lead and wood structures. Because no stained glass window is impervious to breaking down over time, the stained glass on your church will eventually need to be restored or repaired. You may have noticed some early signs of aging on your church’s windows but don’t know what to do about it or if you should do anything. The best thing to do then, is to have an expert come out and take a look at your church windows. This will let you know the extent of the damage and the scope of the repair. It may actually not be time for a restoration to your church’s windows but, if restoration is needed, it is best to do it before the window gets too bad. Once a window is in too much disrepair, extremely high restoration costs could be a possibility or the window may be beyond repair.
