Improve Privacy in Your Kansas City Home with Custom Stained Glass

Posted July 27th, 2018 by ssgadmin

Finding the right privacy solution for your Kansas City home can be difficult. Window coverings often look tacky, outdated, and can become mildewy if placed within bathrooms or rooms with moisture exposure. Window coverings also block out natural light, making homeowners prioritize what’s more important to them: privacy or natural light. Privacy stained glass provides an effective solution that’s elegant, improves property value, and doesn’t sacrifice natural light transmissions or privacy.

Benefits of Custom Stained Glass for Your Kansas City Home

Stained glass provides an excellent privacy solution that’s applicable for many areas of your Kansas City home, including bathrooms, bedrooms, entryways, hallways, kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms, basements, and much more. Privacy stained glass tends to utilize clear, leaded glass. Leaded glass obstructs unwanted views into your home while maintaining excellent visible light transmissions. Leaded glass provides a more elegant, modern look that fits into a lot of homes here in Kansas City. For a more traditional look, colored stained glass options are available for privacy as well. Traditional stained glass can control the amount of visible light transmissions, providing versatile options for how you’d like your home to look and feel. Every piece we create is custom designed, offering a great way to improve property value and curb appeal.

3 Sure Fire Signs That Your Fort Worth Church Stained Glass Is In Need Restoration

Posted July 12th, 2018 by ssgadmin

Stained Glass Is Durable But Still Needs Regular Restoration And Repair

Stained glass is an extremely durable substance but happily transparent and able to take color through paints, pigments, and dye. This makes it the perfect medium for adorning churches and giving them that sought-after ethereal feel. While you may think of it as impervious to decay, the truth is, stained glass windows will eventually break down. This type of degradation of glass takes a long time on modern stained glass due to its make-up and stability but there are other ways a stained glass window can break down beside decay. If your church has stained glass and you wonder if it may soon need repair, read on to find out what surefire signs of disrepair to look for on your chapel’s stained glass and keep it looking lovely and intact for decades to come for parishioners.

Gaps In Your Church’s Stained Glass Window That Show Daylight

One of the most obvious signs that it is time to repair your Fort Worth church stained glass is gaps of visible light through your window. This is when there are actual holes, small or large between the glass and leading or frame. These are caused by the stretching of the lead and the issue with this is–the surrounding glass panels are no longer held securely in place. The possibility of a piece of glass falling out of the window is very good and stained glass professional should be consulted at once.

Buckling, Bowing And Sagging Of Your Church’s Stained Glass

If the stained glass windows in your church are buckling, bowing, bulging or sagging, this could mean your whole window is getting ready to collapse. This is a worst-case scenario of course, but even a small piece of glass could hurt someone. This type of damage is less about the glass decaying and more to do with the wood frame (which have been expanding and contracting in time) losing strength. In the long run, these rapid shifts in the frame take a toll on the lead and it begins to lose strength too, This is an issue that needs to be repaired soon to immediately.

Chips And Cracks In Your Church’s Stained Glass

Probably the most common signs your church stained glass window needs repair and the least harmful are chips and cracks in the glass. Not pressing to fix, these are simply damages that all stained glass windows incur over time. They do affect the beauty and luster of your church’s stained glass though. However, cracks in glass can be a sign of “stress zones” in the glass from a failing frame. So, if you notice cracks getting bigger or increasingly popping up, contact a professional stained glass repair company like Scottish Stained Glass Fort Worth.
