Signs that Your San Antonio Chapel Stained Glass is Ready for Restoration


San Antonio chapels definitely house some of the most gorgeous religious stained glass windows in Texas. With beautiful, antique stained glass that’s been enjoyed for multiple generations, these windows and panels are definitely cherished by their communities. Did you know that stained glass needs to be restored every 75 to 100 years in order to keep them intact? Often times, clergy or congregation members will begin to notice certain signs of deterioration but won’t be sure of what to do. Catching these signs and being proactive about restoration can save you thousands during the process.

Stained Glass Signs of Deterioration in San Antonio Chapels

If you notice any of these signs of deterioration, it is time to get your stained glass checked out! When it comes to the glass itself, if you see any cracks, missing pieces, warped shapes– concave or convex, discoloration, etc. starting the restoration process is vital. For the lead came, which is the framework supporting the individual glass pieces, if the lead is beginning to soften, deteriorate, mishapen, or cause white dust that appears on the window itself, these are other signifiers that your chapel stained glass is ready for restoration. There was a time period when stained glass studios thought plexiglass would be a great idea for adding a protective layer for stained glass. This has resulted in heat trapped between the stained glass and plexiglass causing yellowing and advanced deterioration.

Finding the Right Stained Glass Studio for Religious Restoration

When it comes to choosing a stained glass studio for restoration, it’s vital to find the right contractor that has experience, great references, and the technical skill. Choosing a cheap stained glass studio can really affect the results, leading to more costs down the line.
