San Antonio churches are typically beginning the restoration process since most stained glass windows are within the 75-year to 100-year range. Restoration is a necessary process that ensures proper preservation of treasured, historic stained glass windows. In order to find the right stained glass contractor for your restoration process, it is important to ask the following questions. Having a good understanding of what to look for can drastically dictate the outcome of your project.
Choosing the Right Stained Glass Studio for San Antonio Church Restorations
When researching the right stained glass studio to undertake your restoration project, churches should always ask for the following: multiple references from past restoration jobs, portfolio items that are similar in size to your restoration project, as well as an on-site assessment. Stained glass contractors with in-depth experience in restoration should have no problem with complying with these requirements. If you’re working with an insurance company and need to submit a claim, the right stained glass studio should have no problem with assisting in necessary claims materials. If a stained glass contractor says they can give you a project estimate without an on-site assessment, that is not a credible sign. Project estimates require an on-site assessment. This on-site assessment also analyzes what the underlying causes of deterioration are and is required to create a custom restoration plan.
Restoration Process for Your San Antonio Church Stained Glass
Once you’ve chosen the right stained glass contractor for your restoration project, it is important to understand that this is an extensive process that can take about one month per restored window. Your stained glass windows will also have to be removed from your church where temporary windows are installed to keep your church safe.
