Common Stained Glass Repairs
Unfortunately, even home owners who take good care of their stained glass can end up with damage that will need to be repaired. One of the most common types of stained glass repair that needs to be performed is fixing a crack or chip. This can be caused by something being thrown at the glass or some other accidental force. In such situations, the damaged piece will need to be carefully removed by a professional. From there, he or she will cut a new piece of the same color to fit into the existing piece's spot.
Another common repair that many home owners need to have done on their stained glass over time is that of re-grouting or re-leading, depending on what procedure was done when the glass was originally installed. Over time, the grouting or leading around the stained glass can become worn, especially when it comes to glass windows that are exposed to the elements. With such a repair, the professional will need to re-grout or re-lead some or all of the piece.
Average Stained Glass Repair Costs
Most home owners dealing with stained glass repairs end up spending somewhere between $300 and $400 for the complete repair. Of course, the cost can vary based on regional pricing factors and the extent of the repair that needs to be done. It will be more expensive to replace a large, broken pane than to repair a smaller one with a chip or crack.
Regardless of the specific stained glass repair you need to have done at your home, it is important to have it done promptly so as to ensure damage does not get worse and thus more expensive over time. From there, you can enjoy the beauty of stained glass in your home for many years to come.
