What is stained glass restoration?
Stained glass is a beautiful art form which has been used for centuries to decorate all types of buildings, including towns, municipal properties and homes. However, over time the stained glass can become damaged. Whether this is due to vandalism or simply the result of time and exposure to the elements, eventually your stained glass may need restoration. This can vary from replacing the lead between the panels, refreshing the colours, replacing some or all of the glass pieces, or recreating the entire window.
By engaging the services of Benyon Stained Glass for stained glass restoration, you can take a damaged or faded window and recreate its beauty so that it stands out as a feature on your property.
Why do you need stained glass restoration?
Stained glass windows can become damaged in several ways. The most obvious is vandalism or crime. Sadly, some buildings are vandalised or damaged without any good reason, and it can be heart breaking to see a cherished stained glass window, especially one with sentimental value, get damaged.
Damage can also occur unintentionally. For example, many older stained glass windows have lead that can warp or crack. This could happen without you noticing, particular over many years or after a particularly hot summer or cold winter. This could deform the pattern in the window and lead to movement in the glass panels. Alternatively, the once bright and eye-catching colours in the glass can become faded and dull and no longer stand out the way they once did.
What is involved with stained glass restoration?
Stained glass restoration involves repairing the window so that it looks as good as it once did. The first step is to identify what the window looked like. Sometimes there are photos or other windows to compare it to, but in other instances, it involves research and careful study to identify the original appearance of the window.
The repair will vary from window to window. It may involve replacing or reshaping the lead to hold the glass securely. The glass itself made need repainting or even replacing. When it comes to repainting or replacing the glass, it is important that the shade is correct. After all, there are many shades of yellow. Getting the right colour involved the right pigments, but also the right glass, which might involve sourcing glass from the right period.
