How to get started with your Fort Worth home’s antique stained glass restoration project


Preparation: The Key To A Smooth Stained Glass Restoration

So you have decided to get the stained glass in your Fort Worth home restored. Good for you! You will be astonished at the life and luster that comes with stained glass restoration. Now that the decision is made, next will come the work and, like any job involving renovations and/or a contractor coming into your home, there are some things you can do to prepare your Fort Worth home. Below we have outlined a few suggestions for your preparations based on questions we get and advice we give to our customers.

How To Prepare For A Stained Glass Restoration

Should I stay in the house or leave?

We hear this question frequently and for something like home stained glass restoration, the answer is almost always–go ahead and stay. For the most part, stained glass restoration involves cleaning and scrapping. In the cases when more in-depth repair work needs to be done, most times we will be doing it off-sight in our studio.

Clear The Area Around Your Stained Glass Window

Since stained glass is breakable (although, no more so than normal glass) you will want the area to be completely clear so your stained glass restoration specialist can maneuver as easy as possible. Also Clear all ledges, shelves and in particularly, stairs.

Protect Your Furnishings And Keep Kids And Pets Away

Make sure you take a good look at the surrounding furnishings and fixtures near the stained glass window and cover anything you cannot move. Although most of the cleaners used to restore your stained glass are non-toxic– things like water stains are possible if things aren’t covered. Also, make sure to keep kids and pets away from the work area. Things like ladders, buckets, dirty rags, and even loose glass are all typical worksite items that could be dangerous for children and animals–even adults too!

Most importantly, if you have any question on stained glass restoration and/or crews, make sure to ask. At Scottish we are happy to answer any questions before, during and even after we restore your Fort Worth home’s stained glass. Contact us today for more information on stained glass restoration!
