Stained Glass Restorations
About Restoring Broken Stained Glass Windows

Damaged Stained Glass Window

 

It was in the "80s" when we starting working with stained glass. After a year or so, we had someone come looking for work at our studio. He told us that he had helped restore many large stained glass church windows and such. It seems his former employer (who we knew of) was a leading restorer of church windows in the east. The employee had a "falling out" with his boss and was now willing to teach us all aspects of restoring old windows.

Windows Being Restored

 

It was soon after that we bid on our first job restoring old church windows. We won the bid and never looked back. Restoring windows is more than replacing a few pieces of broken glass. After all, most of the pieces of glass that are broken is because the lead holding the pieces buckled, bowed, cracked and sagged. This is what caused the pieces of glass to break. In addition, when the lead moved around like it did the "cement" that was originally forced into the lead channels has dried out, cracked-up and fallen out.

Restored Stained Glass Windows

 

Our techniques for restoring windows have been around a long time. Anyone who has worked with stained glass will tell you that restoring old windows is a complete different "animal" than creating a new one. We've had many people bring us windows that someone who, because they work with stained glass thought they could restore an old window......and failed miserably.

 
 
Stained Glass of Temple Shirdi Sai

 

stained-glass-temple-window

 

 

Cubby's was commissioned by the Shirdi Sai Temple to create a beautiful Stained Glass window for their Temple, right here in Inverness, Florida.  As far as we know, this is the first, and only, stained glass window to be built and installed into a similar Temple anywhere, period.

 

Cubby's would like to say "Thank You" to everyone who helped create this piece.

Restoring History

Antique Door Needing RestorationWhen the customer brought this door into us it was completely falling apart.  From the stained glass to the wood door itself, the whole thing was literally “coming apart at the seams”.

In this case we do the woodworking in our woodworking shop and glasswork in the studio.
