Is The Stained Glass in My Colorado Springs Victorian Home Worth Repairing?

The Value Of Colorado Springs Victorian Stained Glass


If you live in Colorado Springs, it is likely you are doing a bunch of upgrades and repairs in your home not looking to buy a new one because of the massive housing price increases.  On older homes, especially Victorian ones, these old stained glass windows are ready to be restored. This is because stained glass windows typically require repair or restoration about every 80-100 years. Putting Victorian homes right smack dab in the middle of that timeframe  Here at Scottish Stained Glass we have definitely heard from more and more homeowners asking us about these Victorian stained windows and if they are even worth repairing. Of course, we always like to see vintage stained glass repaired rather than destroyed and below we have outlined why it could be good for you.


Victorian  Stained Glass Is has Monetary Value


While it may seem diminutive, the Victorian stained glass in your Colorado Springs home could be worth quite a fair amount of money depending on its post-restoration value and market conditions.  Stained glass is extremely durable and even if it looks dull and dingy, will likely shine right up when restored. America glass from the early part of the 20th century is very valuable because of the materials used by craftsman around the turn of the century.  While the value of each window is very different, you can expect it to appraise for at least 4x that of a new stained glass window! Considering stained glass costs anywhere from$150 to $500/per square foot, you could be sitting a good sum of money.


Victorian Vintage Stained Glass Is Historical Value


Victorian stained glass is over 100 years old in some cases and definitely an antique. It is obviously valuable monetarily speak but part of that value is based on its rich history.  Stained glass in many Colorado Springs homes was crafted by a master glass artist at that time and therefore is a cherished part of Colorado Springs’s wonderful history. By retaining and restoring the stained glass in your home,  you are doing your part to keep the past alive and a civic service to the city as a whole. So, before you decide to remove your stained glass, a good idea is to see if you can get it appraised and research the history of your glass and home.
