Stained Glass windows in churches and places of worship are a beautiful part of the design and the décor. However, over time, they can deteriorate and the window frames begin to rot.

Years ago, a lexan protective layer was installed over the outside of the window for protective purposes. However, over the course of time that lexan yellows and traps moisture in between it and the stained glass window.

This moisture causes the lead in the windows to rust or oxidize. Additionally the moisture causes the wooden frames to rot. These windows are extremely heavy and the deteriorating wood and lead can cause the windows to break and fall apart.
 
As the stained glass windows deteriorate they allow for quite a bit of energy loss. Egan's Church Furnishings and Restorations does historic restorations on stained glass windows. Through our stained glass restoration process, we can repair the lead in the window, and repair or replace the wood where necessary. If the frame needs to be replaced, we can replace the frame with mahogany or aluminum, which creates a passive solar frame, which is excellent for cutting down on energy bills.
