Stained glass windows are extremely complex and repair and restoration must be done by experts with the proper knowledge and experience. Before any work can be started, all windows need to be photographed to create a photographic copy of how the window looks. 3 copies of tracings are then made in which our team puts tracing paper over the window and then using charcoal pencils, trace the existing lead matrix. These tracings are vital to create a plan of how the window will be re-assembled.
The individual pieces of glass are then numbered and noted on the tracing before dis-assembly. We then remove all of the old lead from the window. We bring this hazardous waste material to an EPA licensed recycling firm. The glass is the cleaned of any old glazing cement. Broken pieces are then repaired. We then install all new lead came, matching the original. The glass pieces are then reset into the new lead matrix. All joints are soldered and then new glazing cement is added.
