Why Most KC Churches Need Stained Glass Repairs

The country’s stained glass is in desperate need of repair because it is reaching the 100 marks–making stained glass window restoration a popular and necessary task for churches in the Kansas City area to undertake. In order to preserve these stunning pieces of history for the next generation–it simply must be done and all of Kansas will benefit from it because these vintage windows are rich parts of our state’s history.

How Do I Know What Restoration My Churches Stained Glass Needs?

The best way to understand what kind of repairs and restoration your church’s stained glass needs is to call a professional, like us at Kansas City Stained Glass, for an inspection of your chapel ’s windows. After our inspections, we will be able to let you know:


  1. Which parts of the frames need replacing
  2. Which glass pieces of glass need to repairs
  3. Which glass pieces need to be replaced
  4. Details about your protective glazing system (if applicable)
  5. A specific time frame for repairs
  6. Pricing on your church’s stained glass restoration


The Evaluation And Bid

After we inspect your church’s glass we will use that information to formulate a bid including details about the time and cost for items like replacement glass, fixing braces, cleaning the stained glass where it is and/or removing glass for repair at our Kansas City studio. This is wonderful for church bodies because it gives you a good idea about the size, scope, and timeline of your project and assists you with any committee process or decision you may have to make as a group.

What Happens At Our Stained Glass Studio

Should we need to remove your stained glass and take it to our Kansas City studio, we will first, delicately remove the windows from their framing, then package them carefully for transport to our studio for restoration. In our professional stained glass studio we disassembled the windows, remove and recycle caming and skillfully clean and repair every piece of glass. Once back together, the glass is returned to your church and installed back into position–likely looking even better than it did 100 years ago!
