Restoring Antique Stained Glass
Many clients come to us with beautiful antique stained glass windows that have been passed down within their family, or that they simply have acquired and fell in love with over the years. Pieces that were created 75 or more years ago simply were not created with the same structure as they are today, so deterioration and lead problems are common. Here’s how we can help:
Softened, bending lead: If your piece has lead that has bent dramatically or even broken completely, we can re-lead the window to restore it completely, and sometimes add structural support for a longer-lasting window.
Broken glass: We have access to hundreds of colors and textures of glass, and we are typically able to match the glass in your antique piece. We can replace single panes of glass to restore your window.
Re-polishing: If your window is looking dull, or if the patina has worn off, we can re-polish it to make it look as good as new!
Our team of builders have restored thousands of windows salvaged directly from Scotland in addition to those pieces that clients have brought to us. Our experience far surpasses any other Houston studio for restoration.
