Church Stained Glass Repair In Denver
A lot of the church stained glass in this country is turning 100 years old in the coming years! While there is a reason to celebrate that it has made it this long, it also means it is time for restoration, thorough repairs or at the very least a good cleaning. This is because around about a century, vintage stained glass on homes and churches begins to need repairs. This is due to environmental factors as well as the way it was built at that time. So, if for some reason you think the stained glass on your Denver church is beyond repair because it looks dingy, chipped, tarnished and old, the truth is–it is probably not. Read on to find out why.
Church Stained Glass That Is Old And Looks Lifeless Can Be Cleaned
Church stained glass and the lead that surrounds it are actually things that are able to be cleaned and brought back to their former luster. While the lead may look absolutely filthy and the glass may not have any shine at all, our deep cleaning will bring to the surface stained glass colors that will amaze you. We do cleanings both on and off your Denver chapel’s premises and which one we do depends on which other repairs we need to do. However, one thing is for sure– the brightness of the glass will blow you away when we are done.
Chapel Stained Glass That Is Bowing Or Sagging Can Be Restored
Many parishioners see the bowing wooden or steel frames on church stained glass windows and immediately think–the damage is irreparable. And that makes sense since, when the support structure of stained glass windows start to bend, sag and bow, the state of your stained glass can look pretty dire. However, regularly deal with stained glass in this state and know that after we are done–this won’t be an issue for another century or even two! Not only do we rebuild the frame and structure of your church’s stained glass windows but we also use modern lead additives to give it extra strength and additional life!
Church Stained Glass That is Chipped, Cracked Can Be Repaired
Church stained glass that is chipped, cracked or missing looks miserable and beyond repair on the surface. Or you may think once a glass panel falls out the whole stained glass windows is done for. However, this is not that big of a problem–, especially for our expert restoration team. Some chips and cracks we can fix right in the window. But, for more seriously damaged windows further repairs are required in our studio. We can fix almost anything there and even match the most obscure colored or textured glass pieces.
If you love your Denver church’s stained glass but fear its time has come, make sure to contact us before taking it out or destroying it. There is often life left in these types of church stained glass windows still! At Denver Stained Glass we are happy to consult with you on how to bring it out! Contact us today for more info!
Stained Glass And Its Symbolic Meanings
Stained glass on churches here in Denver, as you know, is absolutely lovely. Throughout the city in churches and chapels large and small, stained glass graces these houses of God. However, what many people don’t understand about stained glass in cathedrals and churches here in Denver and around the world is– the glass designs and even colors have very deep meaning. That’s right, almost all stained glass in churches is symbolic of other things. So besides being beautiful, the stained glass has meaning too. So what does the stained glass in your Denver church represent? Read below to find out more.
Why Symbols And Colors Were Used On Stained Glass
In cathedrals around the world and here in Denver there are symbols everywhere–including stained glass. While they obviously are beautiful, they also were used because poor people in the very distant past, were unable to read. Therefore by using pictures, symbols, and colors, the clergy was able to easily give spiritual education to the commoners. In fact, stained glass windows were called “ The Bible of the Poor” because they were so heavily involved in instructing illiterate peasants. However, even after reading became widespread, these symbols and colors, already cemented in their meaning, continued to be used as choices to convey a spiritual message.
Common Stained Glass Symbols And Colors And Their Meaning
Jesus: Lifelike images, crosses, lambs, shepherds
The Holy Spirit: flames, winds, a white dove
The Saints: a man or woman; symbols associated with them, the manner in which they were martyred him or her
Virgin Mary: A female figure often wearing blue, the color blue

In 1910, one of Denver’s most influential industrialists had a home built for his family in the downtown area of the city. The house was constructed on the corner of 8th Avenue and Grant and, being 36 rooms large, was nothing short of impressive. Among other fine things, the home was equipped with a magnificent custom chandelier, beautiful wall hangings, and custom fixtures. A long stairway lead up to the front doors of the home, creating a grand entrance. But perhaps the most remarkable feature was the three section Tiffany stained glass window in the Denver home.
Numerous photos document the existence of the beautiful stained glass and its intricate detail. Old as the photographs are, there are no denying the stained glass’ incredible beauty and craftsmanship. The stained glass was not only a defining characteristic of the home, but also the surrounding neighborhood. That’s why when the beautiful artwork was discovered to have gone missing, people were shocked. How could such a large fixture suddenly vanish into thin air? Thus began the search for Denver’s mysterious missing Tiffany stained glass.
