We recently completed restoring and encapsulating two original stairwell stained glass windows in Southampton, Hampshire. The task was to restore and to add thermal efficiency to this original feature stairwell window in Hampshire. These stained glass windows provided character both inside and outside of this private home.
Getting To Work
Before we could get to work on the stained glass window repair, we had to remove the panels from the frame and install a temporary glass window. Once we had the stained glass window panel back in our workshop, we were able to start the restoration process.
The design of this stained glass panel was quite intricate. Our stained glass specialist were able to cut new pieces of glass to replace any cracked or broken ones. Once we had all the new pieces of glass we replaced the old worn out lead work for new lead to match the original design.
Once both stained glass windows were complete, we installed each of the panels within a double glazed unit making it triple glazed. We then re-visited the property to refit the encapsulated windows back into the existing frame.
For this house, the stained glass windows provided a lot of natural light for the entrance and stairway. It was important to the client that the windows were kept yet adding a thermal gain while still letting in lots of natural light. This stained glass window repair not only improved the aesthetic of the house, but the security and energy efficiency as well.
