Leaded Windows Repair
If your leaded window is mildly damaged or cracked, we can carry out an insitu leaded glass repair. However, this is often dictated by the overall state of the panel.
How We Carry Out An Insitu Leaded Light Repair
The process for the repair often sounds simple. Despite this, it takes skill to carry out the repair without causing further damage to both the lead and glass. Our skilled craftsmen carry out the lead glass repairs by hand.
The broken glass is carefully removed from the lead cames. The lead cames are then folded back to allow for the newly cut piece of glass to slot into place. The lead cames can reposition back against the glass. This allows the new leadlight cement to fill the space between the glass and lead cames which ensures the insitu repair is watertight and firm. The process is undertaken with care and caution to protect the leaded glass panels.
Scheduled Insitu Leaded Glass Repairs
Large projects can often require a mixture of removal and insitu repairs. Insitu repairs are the favoured option for many schools with either leaded windows or stained glass.
We have several contracts in place that allow for monthly, quarterly, or annual inspections where insitu leaded window repairs are undertaken.
