Superior durability

Stone window frames are known to be an exceptionally durable, long-lasting material that can withstand many weather conditions. This means that its appearance is maintained over time. Similarly, leaded windows are also durable as their resistance against the elements gives them longevity.

This window and frame combination also provides extra security. Stone window frames are a heavy-duty and secure frame for any glass window. When reinforced with other materials such as steel,these frames become even more sturdy. The lead strips on leaded glass windows hold the glass together to create a strong window with small individual panes to increase privacy.

Timeless elegance

Leaded glass windows with stone frames look timelessly elegant and sophisticated. Their historical charm allows them to stand the test of time and bring character to any space. The intricate detailing of the leaded glass windows adds visual interest to any architecture and is an impressive show of craftsmanship. Stone window frames provide a natural and organic feel to the window, with distinct colours and textures offering a sense of uniqueness.

Natural insulation

Another benefit is that stone window frames and leaded windows provide natural insulation benefits. The space between the leaded glass window’s panes provides additional insulation that helps to regulate indoor temperature and improves energy efficiency. Stone also helps to regulate temperature as it can store heat from the day and release it slowly at night. The combination of leaded windows with a stone window frame offers thermal resistance to reduce heat loss during the colder times of the year.

Periodic cleaning is all that stone frames need to retain their look. Leaded glass windows require far less maintenance than other windows such as wooden ones.
