“We first worked with Mr. Cain in 2017 on a state university project to restore leaded glass transoms. As general contractors, we were more than impressed with Mr. Cain’s updating and reporting during the process. In addition (and most importantly!), we and the university were extremely pleased with the results.
Mr. Cain’s artistic skill set was a key component in helping us to complete restoration of this historic building. In 2018, we did not hesitate to again turn to Mr. Cain for help with restoration work at another state university, again with excellent results. We look forward to future cooperation with Mr. Cain when the next opportunity arises.”

“Walking through our sanctuary recently, we noticed a support piece from one of our stained glass windows was sitting on the window sill. On closer inspection, we noted that this particular window was also starting to bow. Our property team sprang into action and inspected all the windows. In addition to those problems, we realized how yellow the plexiglass covering our stained glass windows had become over time. It was time to call someone to repair and restore our beautiful windows. But who should we call?
Initially, the team located two firms out of state that “might” be able to get to it in a few months. We sent photos and were discouraged by the potential costs. Then, we ran across the web page of Wayne Cain, located right here in Central Virginia. What a godsend! He visited and inspected the windows, diagnosed the issues involved, and assured us that it all could be taken care of in a relatively brief amount of time.
Wayne delivered even more than he promised. He completed the work professionally and on time. His price was a third of those out-of-state firms and could not have been more accessible to us throughout the process. He and his crew were as personable, kind, and professional as we hoped. Honestly, people don’t come any better. Wayne and his team were honest, hard-working, and a joy to work with.
Now, our windows are secure and even more beautiful than before. The yellowed plexiglass is gone; new plate glass covers are in place, which will not be yellow, and the windows are bright and colorful as they were intended. Thank you, Wayne Cain! You were a blessing to us and will be to others who need stained glass or art glass repair, restoration, or creation. We could not be more satisfied!”

“Wayne Cain and his team were hired in 2007 to repair and restore all stained glass windows in our beloved Chapel on the Fork Union Military Academy campus. These windows dated from the 1930s and needed much TLC.
“Wayne and his team hovered over the work and treated each window as its one-of-a-kind masterpiece. They were attentive to the minute details you would expect of such work and interacted well with other subcontractors on the job.
“We couldn’t be more satisfied with Wayne Cain’s work, and we would hire him again without hesitation. The work was completed nine years ago and looks today as good as it did on the day he finished the job.”

“We have had Wayne and his crew do some window memorial plates for a number of years. When we needed to replace our window coverings for our stained glass windows Wayne Cain was the fist person I thought of. We gave him a call and right away he came down and looked at the windows, gave us the cost and date that he would start.
“Working with Wayne and his crew was great. They were very professional about what they were doing. The workmanship was great and they keep everything clean. Sometimes we had some things going on at the church and he would work around it. If I was to ask who I would get to do a job like that it would be Wayne Cain without a doubt.”

“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.”

“The longer we work with Mr. Cain and his studio artisans, the more convinced we are that we employed the best help we could get for the protection of our stained glass windows at Palmyra United Methodist Church. The windows are one of the most valuable parts of our church. They needed to be protected. Mr. Cain suggested to us some options and let us select the method most comfortable to us.
“After covering our five stained glass windows with vented, glass protective coverings, we had an incident where a mower threw a wooden projectile through a cathedral glass window pane on the side of our sanctuary (not one of our stained glass windows, thankfully). On the same day as the incident, Mr. Cain was at our church, without asking, to tape up the hole while the replacement glass process could be carried out to find the match to the other windows located there. You rarely find that kind of service in today’s business world.
“We highly recommend his company and artisans for all things window covering and/or stained glass window design.”
