Determining If Your Retail Stained Glass Needs Restoration

Examine Your Stained Glass Yourself

The first step on your restoration journey is to examine your stained glass to get an idea of its superficial state. This means taking a close look at the glass to see if there are any chips, cracks or missing pieces. Also, examine the leading. Is it chipped and brittle? Or does it look saggy? These are all signs that the stained glass in your Fort Collins retail hub may need repair.

Have A Professional Access Your Stained Glass

The next thing to do is to have a professional do an assessment of your stained glass. A professional will take a much deeper look at the glass, leading and structural elements. They will be able to see things you may have missed like concave windows or micro-fissures. They will also be able to give you an estimate of time and cost. This will be important for the next step.

Talk To Your Investors and Employees

Once you know the state of your stained glass, how much it will cost to repair and how long, the next step is to talk to those invested in your store. This could mean actual investors and partners. It could also mean employees who may have to take a bit of time off during restoration. Most of the time we here at Scottish are minimally intrusive but preparing interested parties is key to a successful stained glass restoration.
