At Tradition Stained Glass we are experts with leadlight windows, leadlight doors and leadlighting in general.
We have completed projects for;-
Leaded glass is a product used primarily in residences and commercial buildings depicting different types of leaded and geometric grids using clear glass, restoration glass or a combination of both, along with tints and accents.
The importance of either re-leading or fabricating new units is to structurally engineer the leaded glass panels so that they do not fail over the years. Properly constructed leaded glass windows can last for over 100 years.
At TSGs Studio, on all-colonial (blocks or rectangular) leaded glass grids, we use reinforced lead cames on all horizontals. These leads have a steel bar encapsulated within the leads. All horizontal re-leads are glazed to the full extent of the width of the panel which properly supports and locks in the window when installed.
On our Tudor (diamond) grid leaded glass windows, we tuck in each lead came to help support the diamond quarries. We recommend (after waterproofing), galvanized support bars be soldered onto each panel horizontally approximately every 300mm to 400 mm
All of our leaded glass is waterproofed and when completed can be installed in single or double-glazed wood or steel sash.

Leadlight Window Repair
Properly constructed stained glass windows can last over 100 years. However, they do require proper maintenance & care.
Often, problems can be present with stained glass windows that are not apparent to the untrained eye, which if not addressed, can lead to bigger problems later on, such as deterioration of putty and window sagging.
