Three Things to Consider Before Ordering Custom Stained Glass Windows

custom stained glass windows

Here at Scottish Stained Glass, all of our windows are custom designed to your exact specifications, hand crafted using traditional techniques combined with modern materials, and installed in the most durable and efficient manner.
If you are considering stained glass windows for your entryway, your sliding patio door, your transoms, or anywhere else in your home, here are some things to consider:

1. Design: Our custom design process allows you to choose from the many hundreds of stained glass window styles we have already created, or imagine something entirely new and see that come to life. You can choose from Art Deco, floral, Aspen, Prairie Style inspired designs and many more — and we have 600 colors of glass to choose from! Depending on your tastes, your current décor, or the architecture of your home, you could choose between colored stained glass, clear textured stained glass, beveled or etched glass, or any combination of these beautiful styles. If you can dream it, we can first sketch it and then build it!

See the various different styles we offer here. We also offer in-home consultation if you live near any of our showrooms, so give us a call for an appointment. If you don’t live near one of our studios, no problem! We have extensive experience working with out-of-town clients via phone, computer and mail.

2. Quality: Of course you want stained glass windows of the highest quality, ones that will last for generations and add to the value of your home. The fact is, not all stained glass is created equal. At Scottish Stained Glass, we pride ourselves on use the highest quality materials available. Our builders are artists with special training and experience in using our unique methods.

Over our twenty years in business, we’ve incorporated CAD computer technology to make sure each and every pattern is perfect, we’ve perfected precise soldering temperatures and specialized polishing methods – and we even have developed our own installation techniques. For instance, our stained glass windows are bonded to the inside of an existing window. This allows you to keep your windows (assuming they are in good enough condition) and makes the installation process quick and clean. It also protects the stained glass panel from the elements, and as an added bonus increases the thermal efficiency of the window!

All of these factors ensure that you will find no higher quality stained glass windows made anywhere.

3. Cost: It is our mission to make stained glass affordable, and our prices start as low as $150 per square foot. If you wonder if you can actually afford the stained glass project you have in mind, remember that along with the square footage, it’s the detail or intricacy of the pattern that adds to the cost. A simple pattern will always be less expensive than one using many tiny pieces, but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less beautiful.

Contact us so one of our stained glass designers can give you an estimate for what you have in mind, and work with you to create something you will be thrilled with at a price you can afford.
