Is The Stained Glass in My Denver Victorian Home Worth Repairing?


The History Of Victorian Era American Stained Glass

 

If you live in Denver, the odds are you are doing some upgrades and repairs in your home rather than buying a new one because of the extreme housing price increase.  One spot on older homes, Victorian in particular, that often need repairs are the old stained glass windows. This is because stained glass needs repair or restoration about every 80-100 years and that puts Victorian homes right smack dab in the middle of that window.  Here at Scottish Stained Glass we definitely have seen an uptick from homeowners wondering if these windows are even worth repairing. We always like to see vintage stained glass repaired rather than removed and below we have outlined why.

Victorian  Stained Glass Is has Monetary Value

 

While it may not seem like much, the Victorian stained glass in your Denver home could be worth quite a bit of money depending on its post-restoration value and the market.  Stained glass is very durable and America glass from the early part of the 20th century is particularly valuable because of the materials used by turn of the century craftsman.  While the value of each window is unique, you can expect it to appraise for at least 4x that of a new stained glass window! Since stained glass costs anywhere from$150 to $500/per square foot, you could be sitting on quite a sum of money.

 

Victorian Vintage Stained Glass Is Historical Value

 

Since Victorian stained glass is an antique, it has obvious monetary value and part of that value is based on the fact that it is a historical treasure.  Stained glass in many Denver homes was created by a master of the time and therefore is a cherished part of Denver’s illustrious history. By keeping and restoring the stained glass you are doing your part to keep the past alive in the city not only for you but for the entire city.  Before you decide to remove your stained glass, a good idea is to see if you can get it appraised and/or find out the maker of the stained glass and/ or the history of the house.
