CHURCH STAINED GLASS WINDOW FRAME REPAIR AND PROTECTIVE COVERINGS

NEW WOOD FRAMES FOR STAINED GLASS.

Sometimes, the damage to wood frames  is beyond repair.   If the structural integrity of the frame is compromised from wood rot, then it can no longer safely hold the heavy stained glass window.   Egan's stained glass studio have a complete wood frame shop  and complete metal frame shop,  to recreate any size or any shape frame to match your original window and the skilled field crews to remove and install the frames.   All frames are available with or without vents with screens and in addition to wood, our shop can create a "maintenance free aluminum frame" .

                

Above photos:  St Anthony of Padua Church, Manhattan, NY  .   Wood rot in multiple key structural areas of the 5 giant (30 ft tall) windows behind the altar area were damaged due to lack of ventilation in the protective coverings and were  beyond repair.    Our team of stained glass frame repair experts prepared a detailed proposal to  replace the existing wood frame with a new mahogany frame with our "internal vent system".

This frame repair project had some unique scaffold set up and access problems due to the Manhattan building density issues.   Access to these 5 windows could not be done from the exterior (a neighboring commercial building was too close to bring scaffolding in), so our team took the stained glass out and removed the damaged wood frame, section by section from the interior of the church.

New mahogany wood frames with "super energy saving internal vents" were built back at out wood shop and installed section by section.  Our team then reinstalled the completely restored stained glass windows.

               

New wood frames installed with internal venting to help save energy for decades to come.

 

All 5 windows completed.   Completely restored stained glass and new mahogany frames.
