Should I Repair My Victorian Stained Glass Windows or Get New Ones?

If you have Victorian stained glass windows in your Kansas City house, the chances are they need to be repaired or restored. This is because vintage stained-glass needs repair/restoration every 80-100 years and it has been over 100 since these were made. Many homeowners come asking if their window’s worth repairing.  For the most part, we encourage them to opt for restoration. Read below why:

Victorian  Stained Glass Is has Monetary Value

Victorian stained glass windows are an increasingly rare commodity. While you may not think much of it, your Kansas City home’s stained glass windows from this period could be worth a pretty penny when restored! This all depends on the quality and restoration – but generally speaking, these antique pieces will appraise for 4x that of new stained glass. 

Victorian Vintage Stained Glass Is Historical Value

Stained glass windows are a beautiful part of history. They have monetary value because they’re antique, but also worth preserving for their historical significance.  One can find out about the window’s past by looking at who commissioned it and what materials were used to create them.  We can help you find these things out when we do your appraisal.  However, the importance of these pieces extends beyond just being pretty. When you opt to have them restored you are keeping a little piece of Kansas City history alive too.

No matter what you decide to do with your Victorian home’s stained glass it is always a good idea to get it inspected and/or appraised to find out who made it and when.  Contact us today for pricing and to schedule an appointment.
