Should I Repair My Victorian Stained Glass Windows or Get New Ones?


If you own a Victorian home in this Houston that has stained glass windows, the odds are it needs repair or restoration. This is because stained glass needs repair or restoration about every 80-100 years and the Victorian period was over 100 years ago. Many homeowners come to us wondering if their Victorian home stained glass is worth repairing.  We always encourage people to have their vintage stained glass repaired rather than removed.  Read below to find out why.

Victorian  Stained Glass Is has Monetary Value

While it may not seem like much, the Victorian stained glass could be worth quite a bit of money.  This depends on a few variables like the quality of the restoration and the housing market. However, Victorian stained glass in the US is getting increasingly rare. This means the value of these antique windows will likely continue to rise and your  Houston home price along with it.  While the value of each window is unique, you can expect it to appraise for at least 4x that of a new stained glass window!  

Victorian Vintage Stained Glass Is Historical Value

Since Victorian stained glass is an antique, it has monetary value.  However, it also has historical value too. The historical value can come from who built the stained glass windows.  It can also come from the types of materials that were used to create your Victorian stained glass window.  Finally, the location of your home and/or who commissioned the original window have a big influence on the historical value.   This means  By keeping and restoring the stained glass you are doing your part to keep a part of Houston’s history alive. 

No matter what you decide to do with your Victorian home’s stained glass, you should start by getting it inspected and/or appraised to find out who made it and when and to access any damage.  Contact us today for pricing and to schedule an appointment.
