Protect Your Stained Glass Windows and Save Energy Costs

Just think how wonderful it would be if your stained glass windows simply stayed in pristine condition once they were installed or recently maintained. That would mean little heat or air conditioning loss through them, no vandalism, or element damage.

Improper installation can create more damage than protection.

Fundraising for Religious Stained Glass Windows

Over the generations, people have built churches with elaborate architecture featuring beautiful stained glass windows. As with all buildings, time takes its toll on these grand structures and they require constant maintenance to keep up their splendor. Unfortunately, the populations that support these houses of worship are also changing and often the support needed is not in place to complete the required maintenance. Churches often find they have to be creative in order to meet their financial needs.

A common question that the clergy will ask a stained glass studio is, How do I get an apples to apples bid? Unlike many industries, stained glass is extremely specialized.
