Stained glass windows should be repaired as soon as you notice that they start to sag or have broken glass pieces.
The older they are other signs of age show up. The lead and the joints show small cracks and if iron rods were
used they have rusted and the binding has become loose. The glass rattles in the frame .
When it comes to this stage you have the chance to save it or loose it,
and a piece of the history of the building.
Old windows are removed from the hard putty and the window can be repaired
or the lead replaced with new. At this point the glass can be cleaned,
reset in the new lead and cemented up and finally polished so that the glass shines in the dark gray lead.
Now the glass window can be mounted in the frame.
WORK IN PROGRESS.
NEW LEADED GLASS.
