Your Windows may need repairing after time , the reason for this is mostly due to
wear and tear. Stained Glass although a durable barrier between you and the elements,
will over time perish .
Generally the lead will detieorate to the extent that it will separate from the Glass
, and then become unstable .
Doors are more vunerable to this process than Windows due to the continual vibration
they undergo . Glazing Bars may also come loose from the Stained Glass Window , thus
accelerating further damage.
If the Lead on your Stained Glass Window has perished , and the Cement ( a fast drying
version of Putty , which lies between the Leads and the Glass ) has become dry and
powdery , then your Window will need re-Leading .
If a full repair is required then we shall remove the Window with minimum disruption,
securing in its place a temporary glazing solution.
All repair work is given top priority , we often return your Glass within a 7-10
day period .
If your Leaded Light has just a few cracked pieces , and the Leads are in sound condition
without any bowing , then often we can repair the Window in situ , without having
to have the whole Glass panel removed .
This involved cutting back the Leads on the Window , removing the broken Glass ,
and cutting a new piece directly over the repaired section . This work can be done
with little inconvenience to you , and often completed in a few hours , seamlessly
matching the original .
There are a number of other Glass repairs we are happy to undertake , these includes
the Glass frontage on Cabinet and Bookcase Doors . We understand that these items
are often very old and of great sentimental value .
These items can be faithfully restored with little fuss , and at very reasonable
prices . Usually we will take the door off at the hinges , and work on the Leaded
Glass in our Studio , returning the fully repaired item to you generally within one
