The Process

Bespoke Leaded Light and Stained Glass Commissions

Leaded-Light-ProcessA personal service and customer satisfaction is of paramount importance to us. From our first contact we encourage you to explore all ideas and options available in order to ensure an end product which meets with your high expectations, as well as performing to the highest specifications for years to come.

From an initial site visit, through the design process, to choosing glass patterns and colours, then the manufacture of the final design, our customers are encouraged to be as involved in the design process as they wish. This ensures an end result which is truly bespoke.

Restoration of Leaded Lights

Following initial contact a site visit will be arranged. This allows for an expert assessment of the windows needing restoration. Recommendations will then be made on how best to proceed. On many occasions, where there is only slight deterioration or small areas of damage, it maybe possible for on site repairs to be carried out.

Should the windows or the framework require more extensive work the steps necessary are discussed with the customer so we can answer any questions about the restoration, including cost implications. A comprehensive written quotation is provided, and costs are confirmed before work begins.

Stained Glass Restorations

Stained-Glass-Window-Repair-afterStained-Glass-Window-Repair-beforeOnce the initial identification of the window to be renovated has been made a detailed record is made of the window measurements and points of reference. This may include photographic as well as written records.

The window sections may be labelled. Any individual glass panes that will require replacement or restoration are identified. The window will then be removed.

This will be done with extreme care to ensure that the process of removal causes no further damage to the valuable stained glass window, and generally involves the careful removal of retaining mortar in order to free the window.

Once removed the window is transported to the workshops where yet more records are made of the window in its intact state – this time in the form of a rubbing, similar to a brass rubbing. This allows exact recording of the positioning of all of the original lead work that is still in place, and allows another method of cross referencing to ensure that the new window replicates the old.
