Stained Glass Repair And Restoration
From Chartres Cathedral to Notre Dame Paris, there are still countless of stained glass windows around today that were built hundreds of years ago. These examples demonstrate just how strong stained glass windows really are. They can last decades if they’re properly maintained.
Today, stained glass windows can be found in more than just churches. We also enjoy having them in our homes because they offer privacy and character. Nonetheless, many people are quick to discard their stained glass when it breaks. They either assume that it can’t be fixed, or that it will cost too much.
However, leaded glass windows can almost always be fixed. And not all repairs are terribly expensive, especially if they’re minor. Here’s a little bit of insight about what you can expect.
Can Leaded Glass Be Repaired?
In most cases, yes. Leaded glass windows can almost always be repaired, though some parts may have to be replaced, such as old leading or broken glass. Repairs, however, can become difficult if pieces fall out and shatter completely. With nothing to go off of, it’s hard to recreate the exact details of the broken piece. However, there are ways around this. Sometimes, repair companies can use old photographs or documents to recreate the missing details.
How Much Does It Cost to Fix Stained Glass?
How much it costs to fix stained glass depends on how bad the damage is, the size of the window, and how difficult the repairs will be. Here are some ballpark prices for different types of projects:
However, it’s important to keep in mind that these are just average prices. Costs may vary from one project to the next. The best way to get a true estimate is to contact a local repair company.
