Churches often come to us here at Scottish Stained Glass in San Antonio wondering what their stained glass is worth. It is a perfectly acceptable inquiry because many stained glass windows are actually worth money. This is due to age, artist or historical value.

We often find parishioners want to keep intact for future generations to enjoy more than they care about the cash value. However, there is an element of monetary value as well.

How Does Restoring Stained Glass Increase Its Value?

The concept behind restoring a stained glass window is–stained glass, unlike many antiques, is worth more after restoration. With a typical antique restoration is not always a very smart idea. The untouched state is often more desirable than a renewed one. With stained glass windows though–the risk of losing them completely due to deterioration is much higher than the risk of having them restored. Windows built more than 80 years ago were only built to last about 80-100 years. Therefore the longer the restoration is neglected–the more value the windows will likely lose. The issue then becomes not if they should be restored but who to have restore them. Because ultimately a qualified restoration company that will increase their value through a job well done.

The Benefits of Stained Glass Repair for Dallas Properties

When property owners start looking into the repair and restoration process for their stained glass, they’ll need to have an on-site appointment with different stained glass contractors. This on-site appointment allows the stained glass artisan to evaluate the root of the problem, create an estimate for the work, and appraise the stained glass. Unrepaired and unrestored stained glass is appraised for much less than it is when fully repaired and restored. Just like renovating a house, the finished product always evaluates for much higher than the actual cost of repairs. The same is true with stained glass. Once restored to its original condition, your stained glass is worth significantly more with the antique value established again. This provides a great ROI while properly preserving your stained glass.
