3 Reasons You Should Repair Instead of Remove Your Austin Home’s Antique Stained Glass


Many homeowners here in Austin are facing the issue of the stained glass on their home needing restoration. This is because the windows made around the beginning of the last century, 100 years ago or more, last about that long before needing it. Some homeowners simply remove the stained glass and replace it with something new. However, stained glass is not that difficult to have repaired. Once restored, stained glass windows on your Austin home will last another 100+ years before needing restoration again. Meaning these beauties will likely outlive you in your home. But there are plenty of benefits to you while you still reside in your house too.

  1. Stained Glass Keeps Your Home’s Vintage Look: While we make some pretty stunning stained glass recreations and amazing modern stained glass windows too–nothing can beat the look of your Austin home’s original stained glass. The colors used back at the turn of the 20th century have a certain unmistakably vintage hue that is simply stunning. Likewise, the designs chosen at that time represent an aesthetic that dovetails perfectly with your home’s architecture. By restoring your stained glass you keep the entire vintage look of your home ubiquitous and as elegant as the day it was built. 
  2. Stained Glass Increases Your Home’s Value: Stained glass on a home, regardless of whether it is new or old, has great value when it comes to appraisal time. Once restored, your stained glass will be worth that much more. However, there are also other value factors to consider, including the curb appeal of sidelight and transom windows and the natural light they provide. This not only makes them good for resale value but a quicker sale as well. 
  3. Stained Glass Is Incredibly Functional: Besides the obvious aesthetic value that stained glass lends to your home, there is the perfect function of this type of glass as well. It is the perfect way to add privacy to your home but no feel shut-in like you may with curtains or blinds. Vintage stained glass on your Austin homes entryway, sidelights or bedroom windows was likely put there for the very reason of keeping your home more private. This type of privacy solution was way before its time and is still the number one reason people have stained glass installed to this day!
