Whether to Repair or Replace
One of the biggest decisions you may have to make is whether you need to repair or replace your damaged stained glass. Damage can occur over time creating anything from a small crack to a missing piece of a window or panel. Coloured glass is intricate work and even the smallest section can make a massive difference.
When it comes to stained glass repair, you need to consider your options. Whether to repair or replace has been a big area of contention in the industry for many years. With so many different opinions on it, your answer may sometimes differ.
One of the main things to consider is the impact any work will have on your final piece. Most of the time stained glass will be older and it will not be possible to get a piece redone by the same artist. As each artist has their own unique approach, style and brushstrokes, this could make a massive difference to the finished look.
How We Can Help
Once we have found out more about your situation, our team will be able to look into how we can help you. We have been working with clients in the Altrincham area for a number of years and take the time to get to know your requirements.
With repairs, we aim to do any work needed on-site to make the process as easy as possible. Although, this is sometimes not possible and we may need to remove a piece of glass and take it somewhere else to be fixed. If this does happen, then we will replace this with temporary glazing to ensure your property is safe and secure.
Designing Stained Glass
As well as providing stained glass repair in Altrincham, we are experts in the design of new pieces of coloured glass. This is a great way of adding more design and interest to your property. When creating the designs we take several factors into consideration. This includes the space available and size needed.
You should also consider the impact that stained glass could have on light coming into the home as well as whether this could change your security. In some homes, building regulations may require that safety glass is used in some sections of a property.
If this is the case then you can look into using laminated or toughened glass. This is around 3 to 4 times more resistant to breaks, ensuring that your home is protected at all times. If this becomes damaged, it will crack but the pane should remain in one piece.
