Posted March 12th, 2018 by ssgadmin

Replacing And Repairing Stained Glass On San Antonio Churches

Stained glass windows are simply lovely and extremely cherished by the church parishioners in San Antonio churches. In fact, they are so loved that at Scottish Stained Glass, get quite many inquiries from church pastors and congregations trying to find out if their glass is salvable or whether it needs to be totally replaced. Perhaps the windows are sagging, dirty, chipped and cracked, or even missing pieces of glass and look in disarray. But these windows are perhaps 100 years old or more and possibly very valuable–so what to do? While there is no simple answer, below is some guidance on antique church stained glass to give you an idea of whether restoration or replacement may be better for your San Antonio congregation.

Weigh The Cost Of Replacing Vs. Repairing Stained Glass Windows

The cost of restoring damaged stained glass windows in your church, especially large ones, can be extremely expensive. But one must keep in mind that, once it is restored, the value of this antique stained glass window will be 4x more valuable than a new window. So keep in mind that, while a new window may cost less initially, it will be decades before it builds the value of a restored antique. In regards to the cost, at Scottish Stained Glass San Antonio, we may be able to help you with fundraising ideas we have seen other churches do. In our experience, this is a project we have seen most congregations eagerly support.

Understand That Scottish Stained Glass Can Match Your Existing Glass

Many customers initially are hesitant to replace their church stained glass because they believe that the antique glass cannot be matched. While matching old glass techniques is difficult, since we have the most skilled stained glass repair artists in the state of Texas, we are able to precisely match almost any stained glass or technique old or new. We also have developed special methods for removing and restoring very large church stained glass windows too. The process does take quite a bit of time but will restore these windows of great sentimental and monetary value to their original luster and beauty, making them last for years and years to come.

Consider The History Of Your Glass

Finally, don’t forget what a long and wonderful history your San Antonio church stained glass comes with. If your stained glass is very old (dating back to the early-mid 20th century) it may be the case that your church’s stained glass windows were designed and built by a master of stained glass making them valuable. The work by this skilled artisan of the time plays an important part of the history of your church too. In this case, investing in an extensive stained glass repair project may well be the best choice for your congregation.
