Stained Glass Benefits
Many of Denver’s older historic neighborhoods are made up of single story bungalows, built before the 1940s. This style of home was considered part of that era’s popular Arts and Crafts movement, and these homes frequently contained stained glass windows or doors.
According to VintageHomesofDenver.com, “The Craftsman-style bungalow found a steady following in the Denver real estate market from 1910-1930. The popular Arts and Crafts movement took hold during the Industrial Revolution and called for a more simple and natural home style.”
Today, most of these bungalows are still standing, still inhabited, still well loved . . . including their stained glass panels. However, while many of these sought after homes have had many renovations done to their interiors, the stained glass is usually untouched. And it might need some loving restoration!
Whether you’ve lived in your Denver bungalow for many years or have just moved into one, what to do with that stained glass window might be on your mind. Sadly, if they are damaged over time, the homeowners might have them replaced with regular windows, not realizing that they can be easily restored.
Although glass does stand up to both the elements and the march of time surprisingly well, there are various issues that might crop up in your antique stained glass, issues that require restoration and repair.
