In a profusion of styles and designs, stained and leaded glass is found in windows and doors, in skylights, transoms and sidelights, in light fixtures, interior walls and many other highlights of American homes. So wear and damage are inevitable. We help maintain the beauty and value of your fine art glass with expert cleaning, releading and repair.
