The Restoration Process
Below are some photo's of the typical problems with which a restoration procedure would be required. Leaded and stained glass should last upwards of 100 years from new but obviously panels that are more exposed to the weathering elements etc. will require attention.
Usually the first signs of restoration needs are when the tie wires break and the panel begins to bulge, this can cause the edges of the glass to be exposed (if left too long) and cracks in panels will occur.
In most cases if attention is received early enough the panel can be re-leaded using the existing glass, although in severe cases replacement glass would be used and matched as near as possible to the original.



Typical Problems That occur :
