At Sherriff Stained Glass Specialists we are experts in leaded window repair and fitting replacement leaded windows. We specialise in restoring leaded windows and doors in old and listed buildings to their original condition, helping clients looking to install or replace leaded windows in their private homes. Whether they incorporated stained glass or not, leaded windows make a beautiful front door feature in any property.
This client commissioned our specialists to create three replacement leaded window panels for their new front door in Bournemouth, Dorset. Two of the leaded lights were to be fitted into the new front door itself, designed to flood the entranceway with natural light and provide an impressive aesthetic to the front of the house.
One of the most exciting parts about this project was the replacement arched transom leaded window that was to be installed above the door. The architecture of the front of this house lent itself beautifully to an arched leaded window being the centre piece of this design. The client wanted the window to be simple and the house number clearly displayed in the middle.
Replacement leaded windows
To create the replacement leaded windows, we first had to take the measurements of the arch above the door and the rectangular panels in the new door. A project like this involved working very closely with the client to get the design of the three leaded lights exactly right. Once the design was set, we cut each piece of glass to shape and fixed them with high quality bonding. These leaded windows will remain strong and durable for many years which is important for security when installing in a front door.
The client was incredibly happy with the final result once we had installed the finished leaded lights. The replacement leaded windows were in keeping with the style of the house and added a real striking feature to the exterior of the building. Inside the arched window also added lots of natural light to the entranceway.
We have over 25 years of experience installing replacement leaded windows and performing leaded window repairs for private homes.
