Leaded Lights, Stained Glass and Encapsulations Blackpool
At Cathedral Glass we offer a range of services. Leaded Lights, Stained Glass and Encapsulations Blackpool, Lytham St.Annes, Poulton Le Flyde and surrounding areas.
We use traditional materials and techniques to create stylish and contemporary looking glasswork for homes and domestic settings. Lead lights are made up of small pieces of glass which are held together by lead cames. The metal cames are selected depending on the size, weight and complexity of the glasswork. Having worked on both commercial and domestic projects, Cathedral Glass has extensive knowledge on how to contrast their glasswork with both traditional and contemporary architecture. With the elegance of the glasswork, the natural embrace of your surroundings will deeply enhance the characteristics of your home.
Stained Glass Windows
Stained Glass refers to coloured glass and offers a unique, adaptable and a diverse medium that can be used to enhance any environment. Whether our customers wish to create a magnificent feature, complement an interior, and cover an unpleasant view or to simply brighten up a space, Cathedral Glass specialise in designing Stained Glass Windows to suit your landscape. Cathedral Glass combine contemporary designs, ideas and technology with traditional materials and making techniques. We are delighted to be creating high quality Stained Glass to stunning effect and have been praised by our customers over the last 30 years.
All original stained glass panels can be encapsulated in to double glazed units. This process involves preparing the glass by soldering a y-shape edge lead around the panel that will hold it in the centre of the unit. If needing any repairs, broken or cracked pieces are matched and replaced. The glass is then cleaned and the lead polished ready for it to be encapsulated.
Any new commissions that are to be encapsulated will have been made with the correct edge lead ready to go straight inside the units.
Restorations & Repair
The Restoration Process
Leaded Light Restorations, Stained Glass Restorations, Copper Light Restorations usually take place when the elements inside the glass starts to break down which then permits a panel or the window to move, thus resulting in the whole window needing to be restored or repaired. In time this allows even more cements to fall out and the joints start to crack, ultimately cracking and breaking the glass.
In order to recover any damage, Cathedral Glass have to first analyse the original window so that they can determine the issues and the design of the window. We will then take pictures of the window before we start to disassemble by then cautiously removing the panel from its stonework/timber/iron surround.
Over the years, we have been working very closely to try and find exactly what makes the “best restoration process” in order to provide longevity for the glasswork. If you want Leaded Light Windows or Stained Glass Windows restored to their natural beauty again, Cathedral Glass can source all of the required materials that looks like the original and use that to restore the window, whether it being Leaded Lights, Stained Glass.
