Stained Glass Repair Restoration
Many beautiful and historic windows have been repaired and restored over the years by Scottish Stained Glass in San Antonio. While we know most stained glass companies turn away this sort of work we are happy to repair or restore anything from from the wonderful historic cathedral window to the home made piece of stained glass your mom made and gave you for Christmas.
Normally if a stained glass window is less than 50 years old it can be repaired simply and inexpensively. If the lead is still in good condition then it`s just a question of replacing the broken piece. For windows over 50 years old a full restoration may be required. This involves taking the panels completely apart and then saving all the glass to be reused. All the lead will be replaced and as the panel is rebuilt the old glass is reused and any broken pieces are matched for color and texture. The result is a stained glass window that will last another lifetime.
The old masters of stained glass worked entirely by hand and with glass cutters and equipment which was far inferior to what we have today. Despite these difficulties they produced stained glass of incredible beauty and at Scottish Stained Glass we feel it is our duty to preserve and protect these works of art for all time.
