Stained Glass

There are many techniques that can be used to create stained glass – from the old methods used in the middle ages to the modern machines which create stained glass in just a few minutes. If you are looking for qualitative stained glass to decorate your property, then you should make sure that the stained glass is created by a reliable company.

We are one of the most popular glazing contractors in London and we offer the most affordable stained glass work in the London area with no compromise to the quality. We’ve been manufacturing stained glass for years and during this time we have installed stained glass in hundreds of residential and commercial properties.

Stained glass can display different images from absolutely anywhere. For example, stained glass is widely used in churches where it displays different parts of the bible, history, literature, etc. It is also frequently used in colleges in order to represent the sciences and arts. It can also be used at home, showing different pictures and landscapes – flora, fauna, animals, etc.

Traditional Stained Glass panels are made by fitting together glass sections, cut by hand in the desired shape and colour. The sections are numbered and fitted together one by one by leads. The whole panel is soldered and rubbed in with a lead based cement to make it strong and weatherproof. A step further in the stained glass game will be the introduction of hand- painted elements of your choice.

Having stained glass panels on your doors or windows can bring a luxurious feel to your home. We would like to help you achieve that and provide the ultimate services when it comes to manufacturing and fitting stained glass panels. The process of making is almost the same as it was hundreds of years ago. We only use the help of modern tools when cutting the glass and creating the design.

Here is how the process of creating a stained glass panel goes like this:

  • Step 1. After a visitation on site, a preliminary sketch is drawn and up for approval. The designer will take into consideration all your ideas and requests and make sure the perfect design is created for your taste and for the space that you want to place it in.
  • Step 2. The colours are chosen and the glass is cut in the desired shape. They are then sanded and painted carefully.
  • Step 3. Hand painting of the stained glass sections. Whenever you wish some more detailed object to be painted on your stained glass – the sections are thoroughly cleaned and little by little layers of paint are built up on them.
  • Step 4. Assembling the lead. Pieces are being put together one by one and the lead is cut and shaped to each section. Once everything is put together, the two ends of the lead are closed. Lead cement is put in all the gaps between the glass and the leads.
  • Step 5. Waterproofing, cleaning and polishing. After the lead cement is rubbed in all gaps and joints, sawdust is applied ( it helps the cement dry faster). In a few days, everything is dry and ready. After a lot of washing and scrubbing the panel is sturdy, the leads have taken on a dark patina and the panel is waterproof.
  • Step 6. Our experts will fit the panel. We are able to fit stained glass panels on doors. Windows, glass walls and pretty much anywhere else on your property.
