3 Reasons to Restore Your Austin Church’s Stained Glass


Stained glass is known for being incredibly durable.  However, like any art form or architectural feature–eventually, it needs to be repaired or restored.  These processes are actually easier than one may think and affordable as well.  Typically vintage stained glass will last at least 80 years before needing to be restored–but could need it sooner depending on the condition from wear and tear.  Also, there are many practical reasons to get your Austin church’s stained glass restored.

What Restoration Means For Your Austin Church

Restoring Stained Glass Adds Value:  As your church’s stained glass ages it starts to get cracks, nicks, and accrue blemishes. Also, the lead starts to become brittle and fall out.  This type of damage significantly reduces any value from antiquity the glass may have gained.  The best way to keep the glass from total failure, while at the same time preserving its value, is to have it restored.

Restoring Stained Glass Improves Aesthetics:  As stained glass ages, it may appear to be fading but actually the issue is the building up of environmental debris.  Also, oftentimes pieces start to gap out from the leading, fall out or the window starts to sag all together.  None of these conditions are particularly attractive.  The solution, of course, is to have your church’s stained glass restored to its former state of beauty. 

Restoring Stained Glass Preserves History: When stained glass reaches the age at which it needs to be restored, it is usually very old.  In fact, it may even be considered an antique.   This means it is a representation of a time in our country that is bygone and worthy of preservation.  Stained glass windows in Austin churches over 80 years old have seen a lot of history in their day and even more events: marriages, funerals, baptisms, and more.  By restoring your church’s stained glass window, you preserve a little piece of your church’s past that would otherwise be gone forever.
