Installation of Houston Stained Glass
It is always our preference to maintain your existing windows, keeping their thermal properties intact. The stained glass panel we create for you is always set on the inside of the existing glass. In this way, the original glass provides a layer of protection and stability for your stained glass art, preventing any deterioration that exposure to the elements might cause. Another benefit of this installation method is that it provides another level of insulation for your windows or doors, either to keep the warmth in during winter or the “cool” in during those hot Houston summers.
How We Install a Houston Stained Glass Window
Although this makes for a much thicker pane of glass, when viewed from the inside, it will seem as if there is only the stained glass panel. You can still touch the lead lines and feel the different textures of glass that you have chosen. When the stained glass is viewed from the inside, it will appear that the stained glass is the only glass in place. You will even be able to feel the lead lines and texture variations of the different types of glass.
Houston Stained Glass Installation Follows All Building Codes
There are situations that require the Houston stained glass panel to be sandwiched in between two panes of safety glass, such as in a bathroom.
Installation is one of the things your stained glass Houston designer will discuss with you when you design your windows. One of our trained installers may also visit your home before your panel is actually manufactured, in case there is any uncertainty or technical difficulties that need to be addressed.
