Church Stained Glass Restoration Project: The Rising Church


We’re excited to announce the successful completion of our recent church stained glass restoration project for the Rising Church located in Arvada, Colorado. The church was built in 1913 and housed all original stained glass windows. Known for its homeless outreach, the Rising Church curates and hosts many food banks and other charitable events. One evening after the church had closed, someone thought they heard noises coming from inside the building. This led to rocks being thrown through almost every stained glass panel in an effort to help. While there was no malicious intent and no one inside, the result was severely damaged stained glass windows.

Church Stained Glass Restoration Process In Arvada

About 90% of the hand-painted stained glass windows were damaged, requiring complete restoration. These windows were carefully removed and brought back to our studio. Our specialists used a proprietary glass mending process on the hand-painted pieces and had new glass remanufactured for all other damaged glass.

One of the challenges with this project was that the framing around the stained glass windows had many imperfections. The original windows had pieces of the outer lead framing removed in order to fit. The windows were originally installed without the framing in order to avoid additional structural changes and labor. So once we had properly restored all of the stained glass, reinstallation without major renovations and adjustments as required. We resized the windows and shaved them down on-site in order to fit.

With the new lead came intact and installed, we added an additional protective glass that was custom made from polycarbonate with ventilation. We also repainted the exterior to create a more aesthetically pleasing.
