Repair & restoration

Using traditional methods and materials Glass Designs will restore and repair a panel to its original strength and beauty.

In old panels, over time, lead and lead cement becomes brittle, causing a panel to bow and buckle and consequently breakages in the glass and lead occur.

The panel will be removed and taken apart, the glass then cleaned, releaded, cemented and polished. Any broken glass will be matched as closely as possible to its original. Once repaired the panel will be as strong and fabulous as it was when first built.

If a panel has just one or two pieces of broken glass, this can sometimes be repaired in situ.
