Each project is approached in a unique way to arrive at an original tailored response to the needs & requirements of the client, taking into account all the variables such as location, function of the space, available light, narrative & desired atmosphere to be created within the space.

Leadlight and stained glass windows are common in older buildings across Northern Ireland, whether they’re the elaborate pieces seen in churches, or the more simple designs found in Georgian style houses.

Leadlight windows are typically found in buildings from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Constructed by skilled craftsmen, they were typically based around geometrical designs, which, like most home décor, varied according to fashion. Stained glass started becoming popular from about 1900, and it’s often a work of art in itself.

Stained Glass Restoration & Repairs

Our team of dedicated conservation professionals, specialise in the cleaning, repair and restoration of existing stained glass panels anon d are passionate passing on a craft tradition

Site visits are made to assess the work required. Sometimes in-situ repairs are possible or, if not, the panels are removed and repaired at the workshop.

Each repair is very site specific, and requires individual problem solving, sensitivity, and reassuring experience. The usual problems are due to thefts, lock-out / break ins, children & balls, drunken parties, domestic fires, insufficient support in doors, wind gusts, new owners and old neglect and accidental damage during renovations. 

 

Stained Glass Restoration.
We can restore any stained glass window back to it’s former glory.

we take on a wide range of restoration projects from small residential door and window glass to restorations of large Church and Cathedral stained glass windows.

We can repair any kind of stained glass window in-situ, or if required, we can completely remove the window for a complete overhaul where we can replace all perished material returning the window to its former glory and ready for another lifetime of service.

If we need to replace broken glass we carefully and painstakingly match class colour and texture ensuring that the replacement panel is indistinguishable from those that surround it.

 

Re-sizing and re-purposing

Salvaged stained glass panels can be re-sized to fit new framework, as an in-situ piece or as a movable ‘picture’ in a frame. Separate pieces of tinted glass can be re-sized and re-purposed in a new design.

 

 

Triple Glazing Encapsulating strained glass panels

We can also take old stained glass panels and place them inside highly advanced and discreet modern double glazed units. To the onlooker it looks just like a beautiful piece of old stained glass however in reality it is now, almost invisibly, part of a highly secure and highly energy efficient window. It’s an example of how Classic Stained Glass combines hard-won traditional skills and cutting edge technology to find innovative solutions to real problems. Rooms with lots of traditional stained glass don’t have to be cold and draughty, they can now be super insulated with the latest A-Rated windows without losing their traditional beauty.
