The Rising Church: Stained Glass Restoration Project

On 03, May 2022 | No Comments | In Aggrigate, Stained Glass Repair And Restoration | By Martin Faith

We’re excited to announce the completion of our most recent church stained glass restoration project. The Rising Church was built in 1913 in Arvada, CO. This beloved community church is celebrated for its comprehensive homeless outreach. One evening, someone walking by had thought they heard people screaming inside of the church after hours. They decided to throw rocks through the stained glass windows to stop the commotion. Fortunately, there wasn’t anyone inside but as a result, most of the windows were damaged.

The Rising Church Stained Glass Restoration Process and Challenges

We removed and transported about 90% of their windows back to our studio for restoration. We carefully disassembled all of the pieces and replaced the damaged glass. By utilizing our inventory as well as our custom glass manufacturing partner, we were able to achieve a 100% color match to the original. All of the hand-painted pieces were kept in place by using a proprietary invisible glass mending technique. Our team replaced all of the lead and also had to resize the windows. That’s because many of the windows were missing their outer lead frames since they were removed to force the windows to fit. After resizing, we were able to successfully reinstall the windows. New vented polycarbonate exterior protective coverings were also installed alongside freshly painted exterior window frames. This added optimal structural integrity and enhanced the vibrancy from both the inside and outside.
