This lovely little chapel in rural Fluvanna County, Virginia was in need of some attention. Having been around for over 150 years, many of the old repairs and elements of the church were deteriorating. We invest so much effort in keeping these small church as unique and authentic as when they were first constructed. We repaired the slate roof, installed new copper flashing to the brick facade, repainted the entrance lettering, as well as installed protective coverings made of non-yellowing tempered glass.

Church Stained Glass Repair Detail ©Cain Art Glass 2016, All Rights ReservedThis humble country church called us to repair broken pieces within their windows and to permanently paint dedication plaques to replace the previous vinyl lettering that had failed. We also were asked to replace their wire-mesh coverings with clear tempered glass protective coverings. We repaired each broken piece with matching glass, thoroughly cleaned the windows, and then properly vented and installed the new, perfectly clear, tempered glass protective coverings.

“Mr. Cain and his team did an excellent job restoring and protecting the stained glass windows of our church and we could not be happier with the experience. Throughout the process communication was great and the work was done to a very high standard, on schedule, and at the price originally quoted.

It was especially nice that Mr. Cain took the extra time we required to answer questions and address our concerns. In an increasingly busy world it is nice to find craftsmen who still take pride in (and stand behind) the work they put their name on, we recommend Mr. Cain without reservation.”

These beautiful windows had been brought to the US from England with a family once a tour was completed. They were absolutely filthy, had many broken or missing pieces, and needed some work to correct bowing and bent lead. We took our time and restored these beauties to their original luster, carefully matching each broken piece, replacing lead where needed, and thoroughly cleaning each window.
