PRESERVATION

Stained-Glass Preservation, Frame Repair Before and After

For many years your stained glass windows have been exposed to the elements causing deterioration. Professional studios not only work to repair that deterioration but also the best of them work ahead to prevent or reduce it from happening in the future. Associated Crafts and now Willet Hauser use two industry innovations to accomplish this.

Associated Crafts’/Willet Hauser’s Klear-Flo protective covering system features a fully-customizable in-frame venting system to optimize the venting needs of individual windows. It is important to know how to and be able to adjust the venting for each window. This optimizes its protection by preventing damaging heat build up.

Klear-Flo is fully weatherproofed due not only to superior design but the use of the highest quality sealant. This optimizes its protection by preventing damaging heat build-up and allows condensation to dry out without damaging the window. There are plenty of less expensive sealants but none offer the benefits of a high quality sealant such as Silpruf® or Dow Corning®. Improper protective covering installation can create more damage than protection. Choose a professional, experienced team who include the best materials and product design.

Contouring of the aluminum framing to closely match the existing architectural millwork is aesthetically pleasing and the best process to preserve your windows. Our craftsman have mobile bending devices so the new framing can be fully customized on site. Our ability to contour allows the clients existing millwork and architecture to remain dominant while providing the highest quality and the best protective covering system available in the industry, Klear Flo.

Our craftsmen are skilled in installing many types of protective covering. Customers often ask which one we sell. We sell the right product for the project. Below is a high-level chart outlining the pros and cons of each product. A representative can help you to choose the correct product for your windows and neighborhood.

Window Preservation In Sacred Heart Church, Coshocton, OH

Associated Crafts® brought the historic stained glass windows of Sacred Heart Church in Coshocton, Ohio back to their original splendor in 2014. Installed in the early nineteenth century, the windows are regarded as some of the oldest pictorial stained glass in Coshocton County, Ohio. The preservation project, necessary to save the windows, included replacing the deteriorating lead came which allowed the severely bowed windows to be fitted safely back into a lead matrix. In addition to re-leading, details that had gone lost of the years - particularly in some of the faces in the pictorial windows - were carefully restored by our talented artisans.
