REPAIR AND RESTORATION

Stained glass maintenance is broken down into two categories: repair and restoration. Often a combination of the two is required. Repair refers mostly to onsite repair work such as broken glass replacement, bulge reduction, and securing of loose braces, etc., while historic restoration refers to the process of re-leading. During historic restoration each window is disassembled and then reassembled using new lead came and bracing.

Deciding which scope of work to do on the stained glass windows can be a confusing decision for any committee. Associated Crafts® / Willet Hauser® can help educate your committee on the pros and cons of each scope of work. Our team is trained to match the right solution to the church’s unique needs. Because of our experience in craftsmanship, we promote a complete look at repair and restoration.
