Should You Remove or Restore Damaged Stained Glass Windows?


Our city has some of the most beautiful church stained glass windows in the state.  Each of these windows has a unique look and distinct history.  Some of the stained glass windows here in Colorado Springs is even very valuable.  However, when church stained glass gets very old it begins to fail. This is a dangerous state for stained glass to be in because it could collapse or pieces could fall out and hurt someone.  At this point, church members must decide whether to have the windows restored or removed.  This is a tough decision but below are some things for congregations to consider.

Damaged  Stained Glass Windows Are Still Valuable

Restoring damaged church stained glass windows, especially very large ones, is expensive.  However,  once they are restored, they are 4x more valuable than new stained glass windows.  It is generally true that a new stained glass window will cost less upfront.  But,  it will be decades before its value is the same as a restored antique stained glass window.   If your church wants to restore your stained glass windows we have many fundraising ideas for you.  Also, there may be historical grants from Colorado Springs for projects like this.

The Look of Your Stained Glass Will Not Change

Another reason churches hesitate to replace their stained glass is that they think their windows won’t look the same. But this could not be further from the truth.  In our studio, we have some of the best stained glass repair artists in the country.  They are almost always able to match any antique church stained glass panel.   When we are done, your church’s stained glass will look exactly the same–just better.  In fact, it will look just like it did the day it was installed in your church–vivid, gorgeous and new!
