Leaded Lights Restoration – Warrington

12th January 2016

Mrs Robinson, Warrington, Cheshire

We bought our beautiful but very rundown house because we loved the period features, the windows in particular but they were in a dreadful state. Some had bowed out of shape, others had panes broken and repaired with sticky tape. Our builders were terrified even to touch them, in case they fell out.

Keith Bell was recommended to us by our architect and we were impressed right from the start by the care he takes to match any new work with what is already there. We felt he really listened and understood what we wanted to achieve and what we had to spend. He is reliable, diligent and patient in getting the right effect within budget.

Our original window panes are made of hand blown glass which has imperfections, streaks and bubbles that glitter in the light. Keith kiln-baked some of the new panes to match the old ones and to preserve the original effect. He also designed a new leaded pane for the front door where the glass had been removed, probably in the 1960s. It looks as if it has always been there but he designed it to be robust enough to last for another hundred years. By the time we were ready for Keith to fix the windows, we had decorated the house and fitted carpets. He made no mess.

I would recommend Keith Bell without hesitation.
