Denver is full of old, stately homes. From towering Victorians to quaint bungalows, architecture of nearly every kind can be found here. Many of these homes have aging stained glass windows and need expert care in order to stay beautiful over the years. As Denver’s leading company for repairing stained glass, we are the Denver professionals to call for your job! Read below to learn about just some of the repairs we do.
Repairing Fracturing and Breakage of Stained Glass
Stained glass is actually a fairly durable material. However, when it does break or crack, the culprit can generally be attributed to something like hail that hits the window and causes damage. Branches are also an issue. Even wind can “bend” stained glass over time and cause cracks to form over time. We do something called a drop-in repair for these types of damage. It is simple and can be done right in your home.’
Stained Glass Repairs of Cracking Lead
A major cause of damage on very old stained glass windows is the deterioration of the leading. Leading, or the metallic seam that connects panels together for this type of window, can become brittle over time and sag from its weight. For these types of repairs, we will remove your entire window in order to replace any deteriorated lead seams with new ones before returning them looking gorgeous and brand new!
Stained Glass Structural Repairs
Sometimes a beautiful piece of stained glass can be destroyed by frames that sag from age. The beauty that is your stained glass window is in danger of failing completely at this point. In cases like these a full restoration project it needed. We will begin by carefully removing your antique window and repairing it in our studio. We will also reinforce the framing structures so your Denver home stained glass work of art lasts for generations to come!
