How to Get Started with Stained Glass Restoration in Colorado Springs


Realizing your stained glass needs restoration is pretty clear-cut. In fact, the window tells you almost everything you need to know.

  1. There is cracked glass on your stained glass window
  2. There are chips in the leading or glass of your stained glass window
  3. There is bowing and sagging on your stained glass window
  4. Your window looks dirty and lacks luster
  5. There is visible light coming through gaps on the stained glass window
  6. Your stained glass window appears concave

While these tell-tale signs that your stained glass needs repair are clear–what to do next may not be. Happily, what comes next is not so difficult.

The First Steps Of Stained Glass Restoration

1 Find An Experienced Stained Glass Professional: As it were, stained glass professionals here in Colorado Springs do not come a dime a dozen. Since stained glass is a very old art form, the number of artisans is dwindling. That being said, the ones who still actively pursue stained glass restoration as a business are often very passionate about it. Like us, at Scottish Stained Glass in Colorado Springs. Preserving stained glass art and windows for the next generation is something we do well and love to do. Likewise, we have nearly 3 decades of experience doing it!

2. Decide On A Budget And Scope For Your Stained Glass Project: Once you begin vetting stained glass professionals for the job, you will likely begin getting a lot of bids. Depending on the state of your stained glass windows you will have bids that are high and low. What you do next is a decision only you can make. But remember, the lowest bid does not always mean the highest quality. Cutting corners on stained glass repairs will almost always show in the final quality and/or the durability of your restored stained glass. At Scottish, our restored stained glass is guaranteed to last another 80-100 years before needing repairs.

3. Prepare Your Colorado Springs Home For Contractors: Just like any home improvement project, stained glass restoration is something that will involve contractors in and around your home. The good news is, often times, with stained glass restoration, the windows are restored in our studio. However, even if the restoration is done on site, it won’t typically involve a lot of workers in and out. Like any job in which a contractor will be in your home, you will want to clear the area around the project and gate off pets and children from the area too.
