Part of caring for stained glass is being aware of any signs of deterioration. Though glass is a fairly durable substance, when exposed to harsh conditions, it can wear over time. At Kansas City Stained Glass, we offer stained glass remodeling & renovation to resolve any issues of deterioration. Some signs that indicate that a restoration is necessary include changes in color, a dull appearance, and bowed or cracked glass. It’s important to always look out for signs of deterioration and address them as soon as they arise.
Kansas City Stained Glass Remodeling & Renovation Process
At Kansas City Stained Glass, our remodeling and renovation services are designed to restore stained glass to its full beauty and functionality. Over the years, we’ve adjusted the methods and techniques we use for our restoration process. Now we believe that we have a succinct process in place that allows us to deliver beautiful results for all renovations.
Extraction: The stained glass is carefully removed from the site and safely transported to our stained glass studio.
Cleaning: The windows are thoroughly cleaned from soaking in a bath of cleansing solution for up to two weeks.
Disassembly: The panel is deconstructed piece by piece.
Glass replacement: All damaged glass is replaced with matching glass from our inventory.
Reconstruction: The panel is put back together with new leading and cementing.
Completion: The stained glass is returned to the original site and reinstalled. A piece of low-e safety glass is applied over the window for added protection.
