Church Stained Glass Window Repair - CT

Egans Church Furnishings and Restorations was asked by the vestry at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church to help them develop a plan and budget to restore historic stained glass windows in their beautiful church and correct the trapped moisture problem with the exterior coverings on those windows.

In order to help with the funding, Bob Egan conducted a thorough site review and prepared  a comprehensive proposal for the parish to submit to the various preservation groups.  By showing the preservation groups the multiple problems that can arise from the damaged stained glass windows and the lack of ventilation from the protective coverings along with our “holistic” approach to stained glass window repairs,   they raised the funds much quicker than they had expected.

Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations offer the finest quality stained glass repairs and restoration. Our studio has patented a complete protective covering system that no one in the industry can match.

Stained Glass Windows - Repair and Restoration, Boston

The beauty of many churches begins with the stained glass windows. Unfortunately, many of those windows are in need of repair.

Years ago, a lexan protective layer was laid over the stained glass in order to protect the windows. Now, in many cases that lexan is warped, yellowed and hard to see through and often moisture gathers between the lexan and the stained glass causing the frames to rot. In other cases, the weight of the stained glass windows has created cracks in the frames and in the lead, also causing rotting of the stained glass window frames.

This same moisture also causes the lead in the windows to rust or oxidize. The deteriorating stained glass window frames and lead can cause the windows to break and fall apart.
 
Antique Stained Glass windows in churches are a standard part of the design and the décor, but many need to be repaired.

Egan Church Furnishings and Restorations specializes in historic restorations and stained glass window repair. Through our stained glass restoration process, we can repair the lead in the window, and repair or replace the wood frames where necessary. We can also supply a passive solar frame, which is excellent for cutting down on energy bills.
