Preserving your historical windows
One of Canada`s oldest cities, Montreal has a large inventory of historic homes and as clients restore their windows into energy-efficient ones, they wonder how to preserve their beautiful detailed stained glass windows.
Our master artisans are experts at retrofitting older stained glass into new thermal and energy efficient panels which are then sealed professionally into their new window units.
Restoring priceless historical windows
Churches, synagogues, and mosques throughout Canada have chosen Studio du Verre to convey their spiritual message through art. The recent restoration of the Lac Megantic Church windows is a perfect example of our work. With close to 100 separate panels to review and restore, it has been a wonderful challenge for us.
Here we see SDV co-owner Jeff and glass wizard Maggie discussing next steps for one of the larger glass pieces. It was quite a privilege for us to restore windows that date back almost 170 years.
