Conservation / Restoration

Beyond broken glass, we remedy general deterioration issues such as buckling, broken lead cames and bindings, corrosion, failing support bars, hardened putty and simple buildup of dirt and grime. Often more harm than good will result if, in the name of restoration and improvement, leaded glass is handled improperly. That’s why we have conservators and abatement specialists at our disposal to help establish restoration priorities and test for hazardous materials. There are thousands of leaded windows in this country in need of repair. There are seemingly just as many considerations and alternatives. We have decades of experience working with the historic leaded and stained glass found in our public buildings. These walls of luminous color are found in libraries, courthouses and churches across the country. We support the growing interest in saving this part of our heritage through facilitating adaptive reuse, capital campaigns and public outreach.
