Signs Your Stained Glass Needs To Be Repaired Or Replaced

Stained Glass WindowsStained glass is a lovely artform cherished by many church parishioners in Houston area churches. It is so beloved in fact, that it is no wonder we, Scottish Stained Glass, get myriads of inquiries from church pastors or congregations fretting over whether to replace or repair the stained glass windows that are perhaps sagging, dirty, chipped and cracked, or even missing pieces of glass. Whether to restore or repair is a question that does not have one simple answer but here is a bit of guidance for you.

Weigh The Cost Of Replacing Vs. Repairing Stained Glass Windows

While it is true that the cost of restoring some badly damaged stained glass windows, particularly large ones, is quite expensive, once it is restored, the value of this antique stained glass window can be up to four times the value of a brand new window. A new window may be less upfront but will require decades before it builds the value of an antique. As for the cost factor, Scottish Stained Glass may be able to help you with a fundraising drive to restore your gorgeous stained glass, a project we have found most congregations are eager to support.
