Leadlight Repair

It is important to ensure leadlight and stained glass are not overlooked when renovating or making repairs to a home. Our leadlight repair service can restore your window back to its original condition.

Like many other parts of a house, these windows need on-going maintenance or repairs to ensure they continue to be an asset to your home. Leadlight repair should be undertaken every 20 years or when they are showing signs of decay.

Some of these sign are:

  • Water leaching from the leadlight windows
  • Putty falling out between the lead and the glass
  • Buckling windows starting to bow or bend
  • Day light showing
  • Lead fatigue – where the lead expands and contracts over time and causes hairline fractures to appear near the solder joins
  • Rattling can occur when some of the leadlight putty has fallen out of the window

If you are experiencing any of the above signs, our leadlight repair service can provide you with the restoration that you need.

In many cases there is more than one way to repair a window. This is where some good advice concerning stained glass repair can help to make the best and most cost effective decision. In particular, it is important that as many of the original features of the window are maintained as possible.

Where possible, Wesley will come out to discuss the best implementation or restoration techniques to help in the restoration and provide you with a written quote or quotes
