Our Stained Glass Window Selection
In the past, stained glass windows were produced by fixing small pieces of coloured glass together with lead strips and soldering them. This method does still exist, although modern overlay techniques give a high quality, attractive and cost-effective result that’s almost indistinguishable from older methods.
Minster glass can be used for a mottled and semi-opaque look, with diffused light and textured colours. Many people find it very visually appealing. Other possibilities include frosted or Stippolyte glass, which are semi-opaque. Overlaid single sheet stained glass offers better thermal insulation properties than separate pieces. It can also be used with stronger types of glass, as required by modern building regulations.
There are also options to artificially age the lead soldering appearance with a choice of antique lead in dark brown or black. Natural, silver or gold effects are also available and there are hundreds of glass colours for you to choose from. Round windows and irregular shapes can also be catered for.
Overlaid Single Sheet Glass
Overlaid single sheet stained glass offers better thermal insulation properties than separate pieces. It can also be used with stronger types of glass, as required by modern building regulations.
Stained Glass Doors in Cardiff
As well as specialising in stained glass windows, we also offer new and replacement stained glass doors as well as repairs and double glazing.
The overlay method of manufacturing stained glass can be used with toughened glass and double glazing, meaning that your stained glass doors are designed with extra safety and security. If the door panels are double-glazed, they also provide additional thermal insulation.
