There are a lot of factors to consider when you’re thinking about repairing, restoring, or replacing your stained glass. The main thing people want to know is how much is their stained glass worth? Understanding that pre-restoration value and post-restoration value are on two ends of the spectrum is important. There are actually different things that go into stained glass appraisal.
What Determines the Value of Your Stained Glass Window
Condition is a huge factor when it comes to value. Unrestored windows are typically in poor condition requiring a lot of time and effort to bring them to their full potential. An unrestored stained glass window can actually be valued for a fraction of the price of what it would be if kept in good condition. Minor repairs for mild damage can also bring your stained glass back to its full value. There are some cases where replacement may be more cost-effective than restoration, but the value of your stained glass can help determine this. In addition to condition, the size, style, and material are all very important factors as well. Vintage or antique stained glass can be appraised anywhere from $2000 to $100,000. For more prestigious stained glass, like Tiffany, these windows can be values from $25,000 to $150,000.
