Our Technique for Restoring San Antonio’s 100 Year Old Church Stained Glass


San Antonio is filled with beautiful, historic churches that feature intricate, antique stained glass windows. Scottish Stained Glass is proud to have restored some of San Antonio’s 100 year old church stained glass windows, prolonging their life for another 100 years. We’re known for our comprehensive, prized restoration process that’s completely restored many stained glass panels featured in San Antonio churches as well as churches all over the Western half of the US.

San Antonio Church Stained Glass Restoration Assessment

Our restoration process begins with the most important step: the assessment. Our team of local, experienced stained glass artisans begin the project with an on-site assessment of your church’s stained glass. This is the most vital step because it allows us to analyze the root problems causing the deterioration of the stained glass windows. For instance, after about 75 years lead begins to oxide from air and moisture exposure leading to a fine white dust appearing on the lead frames. The amount of oxidation allows us to determine if we have to completely remove the original lead or simply reinforce it with a lead and tin mixture. Once the assessment is complete, our team of glass artisans remove your stained glass window and carefully transport it back to our repair studio.

San Antonio Church Stained Glass Restoration Process

We allow your stained glass windows to soak in our proprietary soap blend for at least two weeks. This thoroughly removes all the dirt buildup from the last 100 years. If we can’t find a perfect match to your original stained glass from our inventory of over 50,000 stained glass pieces, we have glass custom made or painters replicate the technique of your painted glass.

We rebuild the window with lead and tin to stabilize the joints and ensure strength. A black cement is forced into all the cracks, and we also add reinforcing steel bars to brace the stained glass if necessary. You and your congregation will be breath-taken when you see your newly restored stained glass reinstalled.
