However, if these old school or antique window glass is broken, it is so dear to fix or replace it.
Why So Dear?
It is so expensive to repair or replace a leadlight window and door, the reasons are: 1) it is hard to find the same glass in the market, it is rare so if you are lucky to find that glass, it is very costly. 2) most of leadlight glass panes were mounted in timber frames or cast iron structures, and it takes a lot of time and cares to remove the broken glass and putty out, clean and tidy up the residuals in the frames or metallic structures, sometimes welding is required, both ways need the skillful glaziers and welders to do the job, and it is so expensive and time consuming. It is very difficult to find a qualified glazier who can do the leadlight window and door repair or replacement in glazing industries, and that’s why the qualified glaziers will charge you a lot for their skills, time and knowledge.
