Throughout the years we have created, restored and design many different styles and types of stained glass here in Austin. Not just for churches and homes either. We have done everything from bars to retail stores we have quite a portfolio of stained glass in unique places. One place that is popular for stained glass is actually in restaurants and bars. That’s right, Restaurant, Bar, & Pub stained glass continues to be a place where stained and leaded glass is increasingly popular. The most common areas: front windows, lampshades over tables, on booth dividers and on bar signs are all fantastic spots for stained glass. However, an issue with having stained glass in a hospitality setting is– it usually needs light repairs and restorations more frequently. If you find any of the signs of stained glass needing repair in your restaurant below, rest assured we can help!
Signs Your Restaurant Stained Glass Needs Repairs
- Dirty or Dull Looking Stained Glass: When you serve food all day at an eatery, you are likely to get a build-up of airborne grease then dust that clings to stained glass. This means that restaurants simply need stained glass cleaning more often. This is something we can easily and cost-effectively do for your Austin establishment.
- Cracked Stained Glass: One common issue with restaurant stained glass is booth pieces getting small cracks on the stained glass. We believe this is mostly due to people are sitting down and standing up in them, constantly applying pressure to the support structure. Mind you, stained glass is very durable but over time, pressure cracks could occur. These are but a small problem for us at Stained Glass Austin. We do what is called a drop-in repair right on-site for these small imperfections and the cost is usually minimal.
- Broken Stained Glass: When you have an establishment that sees a ton of people coming through day eating and drinking–accidents happen. Again, stained glass is just as durable as regular glass windows–but even those break occasionally. A breakage in the stained glass or missing piece probably will require us to remove the affected stained-glass sign, lampshade, booth divider or window and repair it at our studio. However, once it is restored it will better than new and add character and style to your Austin eatery once more!
