Why Stained Glass Is Durable Enough For Your Denver Home

If you are like many homeowners in the Denver area, you are probably doing upgrades on your home and plan to continue doing so for quite some time, since buying a home in Denver right now is severely cost prohibitive.  You are likely considering many different home improvements and may have even considered one that is in our wheelhouse–stained glass windows. But, again, if you are like many people you may have nixed the idea thinking that stained glass is an expensive, luxury that is easily broken.   We are here to tell you, nothing could be further from the truth and to set the record straight on stained glass myths such as these.

3 Common Misconceptions About Stained Glass

Stained Glass Breaks Easily:  Stained glass, as you may not know, is just as strong as regular glass.  The composition is nearly identical to the glass you have in your windows right now in fact.  Leaded stained glass, as it were, in some ways is more durable than a normal window because often times breakage occurs in just one panel, meaning you don’t need to replace the whole window–just one panel.  The issue with stained glass windows is, they are typically a little more expensive to replace when broken and take more time since they are custom made. However, the beauty and potential value of these windows far outweigh the risk of breakage.

Stained Glass Is Very Expensive: Per square foot, it is definitely true that stained glass is more expensive than regular glass windows.  However, you also pay for what you get, meaning, these windows add more character privacy lasting charm than a plain glass window. Additionally, when the time comes to sell, the stained glass window will typically add more than 4 times its original value to the selling price of your Denver home.

Stained Glass Is Too Fancy For Regular Homes:  It is true stained glass used to be only something for wealthier families homes.  However, those days are long gone. In today’s modern world, you can get a lovely stained glass window or stained glass window panel installed in your home for a price point that is affordable to any average middle-family.  They are beautiful and well worth a small investment in your home.
