Church stained glass windows are considered “works of art” and require true experts to be certain the intricate design of the original artist is recreated when re-assembled. Our studio, Bovard Stained Glass , has 55 highly skilled experts and follow all National Preservation of Stained Glass guidelines. In addition, we have won numerous Preservation Awards for restoration of Tiffany Stained Glass and LeFarge Stained Glass.
“All stained glass windows, when covered by protective glass, must have a ventilation system to prevent overheating of the glass and moisture buildup”. National Preservation Society.
Unlike clear glass, colored stained glass absorbs heat and then expands. Because there is no expansion joint in a window sash, overheated glass will have no place to expand and will bulge or the glass will crack. Also, moisture in the air will get trapped between layers of glass and lead to lead oxidation and frame rot.
Bovard Stained Glass Studio has designed and patented a perimeter framing system with built in air channels to allow a natural air flow to cool the glass and dry the space between layers.
Wood frames for church stained glass windows age and deteriorate just like all natural building materials. Normal maintenance like re-puttying and painting frequently are neglected because of the size of the frames and the need for scaffolding. Egan Church Restorations team of woodworkers can help to preserve your window frames with simple repairs or complete frame replacement if needed.
