Stained Glass Repair and Restoration
I carry out repair, restoration and refurbishment work on stained glass leaded light windows in Suffolk.
Some repairs can be carried out in situ, for example where there is a single broken piece of glass. Panels can be strengthened. Broken and cracked cement can be replaced to make the panel water tight once again.
When the window has several broken pains, has solder fractures, rattles or bowing it would be necessary to remove and rebuild the window.
I always endeavour to find the closest possible match to the windows original glass, this can be hand blown antique glass or cathedral glass, sometimes reclaimed glass. The lead came is also matched up to the same width and profile as the existing lead.
