Stained Glass Protective Covering replacement for First Congregational Church.
Stained glass protective covering replacement at Orient Congregational Church was needed after Hurricane Sandy damaged several of them. Debris flying in the air, smashed the old plate glass protective glass and the congregation needed to replace the coverings to insure no future damage.
Egan’s Church Restorations and our stained glass studio, Bovard Stained Glass, were chosen to help Orient Congregational Church protect their historic stained glass windows from storm damage. Hurricane Sandy cracked numerous pieces of their previous plate glass protective coverings and exposed their windows to future “super storms”.

New Stained Glass Protective Coverings for a priceless work of art, requires more than simply screwing a thin sheet of protective coverings material to the wood frame as someone did back with the previous repair. Our team of window frame repair specialists, removed the old, poorly installed protective covering materials and repaired the wood frame.
After repainting the wood frame, we then installed the Bovard Stained Glass Studio’s patented perimeter framing system with built in vents. We then installed 1/4 in thick tempered glass, the strongest possible protective glass. This new protective covering was certified to withstand up to 120 mph winds.
