Stained Glass & Bespoke Frames Manchester
Here at Starlight Stained Glass, we specialise in all aspects of stained glass, from the design of beautiful and unique glass pieces to the repairs of missing stained glass.
Have you ever thought about having a new stained glass window in your home? Imagine the colours cascading through the glass and illuminating your rooms with distinctive and beautiful light.
The process of Starlight Stained Glass fitting your stained glass into bespoke frames can be highly beneficial.
Fitting stained glass into bespoke frames gives the effect that the stained glass is original and over 100 years old when in reality the panels are brand new. The best part of this process is that you gain all the benefits of new high efficiency insulated glass and the beauty that only custom-designed stained glass can offer.
Stained glass can be sandwiched between the insulated glass, the size of the stained glass panel would have to be very precise. If the stained glass was too small it would leave a gap between the leaded glass edge and the insulated seal would look tacky. Alternatively, if the glass panel was too big it would cause immense problems.
On the contrary, stained glass windows can also be installed on top of the existing insulated glass on the inside of a property. This method is beneficial as the full beauty of the stained glass panel is seen by you and is not blocked by the glare from another piece of clear glass. You are also able to take the stained glass panel with you if you ever decide to move; no one would know the window has stained glass in or on it.
The stained glass we install will add beauty and value to your home as well as giving your home a unique and creative feel.
I couldn't recommend this company highly enough. We had stained glass from the 1930s which got broken and was really difficult to source. Steve went above and beyond to try and find the right coloured glass and we are more than happy with the results. He has done a brilliant job and it was for a very reasonable price. I don't really write reviews online but its rare that you find real craftsmen who take pride in their work and don't rip you off - so I am writing one now! Thanks Steve.Victoria Lowe
We had two stained glass panels double glazed here and places in new frames. Delighted with results. Recommended.Ged Parr
I found Starlight stained glass online and asked them to pop round and quote for a new piece of stained glass above our stairs. Steve, was helpful and honest with his advice, listened to everything we said and improved on our design ideas. There was no sales pitch, he just genuinely cared about the customer getting what they wanted. The final product is stunning. I love it so much. It is high quality, impeccable workmanship and it is my favourite thing in our house. I have recommended Steve and Starlight Stained Glass to all my friends and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Thank you so much for our window.Simon Drake
How Are They Installed?
Before we install the glass we ensure that both inside and outside of the glass is perfectly clean and dry. We then use two small brad nails on each edge of the stained glass panel to pinch it against the window. The small brad nails are driven at a low angle into the edges of the sash no more than one-eighth inch to prevent them from hitting the window glass. The shaft of the nail touches the edge of the leaded glass and the window sash is consistent round the edges. If your window is pained we will use a paintable acrylic caulk to fill in the gap between the stained glass and window sash; alternatively, if the window is stained we are able to use clear silicone caulk.
