Mend, Repair and Restore Stained Glass Windows
Stained glass is glass so it can get chipped or broken and leaded glass can be pushed but it is not difficult to get these things repaired. A window can be removed, stripped down and put back together with new lead. It is at this point that you could give added security to the window by sealing it within a double glazed unit. This will preserve the glass, give the door a strengthen exterior and also cut down on drafts. This can also preserve the glass for many years into the future. Stained glass can be very beautiful and decorative lasting many years, but sometimes,like everything, it needs some tender loving care. Stained glass studio recently restored a large window at the headquarters of The Retail Trust, in Mill Hill. They had a beautiful old window but unfortunately it had begun to leak and water was causing damage to the building as well as the window. Restoration has given the window a new life and the room behind is now a busy, warm and dry. When I went to the dedication one comment I remember was from a neighbour who said she had really missed seeing the window lit up at night with all the beautiful glowing colours. What more could we ask for as a comment on the successful completion of our work.
This is part of another restoration project.
