Originally built in 1911, the masonic temple is a historical landmark located in Montrose, Colorado. The owner at the time decided to transform the existing space into a music events center for the community called The Lark & Sparrow. Inside of this property is an original stained glass ceiling feature that was over 100 years old. The owner contacted us for a full restoration in hopes to keep this stunning feature in the best condition possible.
Commercial Stained Glass Restoration Project Scope
With 48 individual stained glass panels totaling over a ton in weight, the original ceiling feature was experiencing rapid deterioration from age and gravity. The steel brace bars were coming loose, the lead was very brittle, and the overall feature had begun to sag. This caused the glass the crack and fall apart, requiring extensive restoration before it was too late. When it comes to restoring older stained glass pieces, the main challenge is matching the original glass. Finding matching pieces can be almost impossible, requiring our stained glass artisans to find creative solutions. From custom glass blowing to layering paint colors on textured glass, we always find a way to create a perfect match for restored glass.
