Stained Glass Resources, Inc. is one of the largest professional stained glass studios in New England, and is a "Fully Accredited Studio Member" of the Stained Glass Association of America. We specialize in state of the art restoration by releading, as well as traditional design and fabrication of new windows. Over the last 28 years, we have completed over 800 window restoration projects, and we are currently involved in several ongoing restorations and new window projects.
Our Studio is a modern well-equipped 15,000 square foot facility with controlled environments for disassembly, cleaning, glass painting, glazing, soldering, cementing, and quality control. As quality is of the utmost importance, rigorous programs have been implemented to guarantee that craftsmanship of the highest caliber goes into each and every project. The Studio has an ongoing lead abatement process, which stresses limiting lead exposure, a clean-air program, employee hygiene and blood lead level testing. We have a sophisticated window storage system, as well as extensive security for fire, theft and vandalism protection.
Our staff of stained glass professionals ranges from stained glass artists to expert site craftsmen. We also have an apprentice program for experienced professionals in other art-related fields who wish to cross-train into stained glass. As a result of this program, we currently have in-house professional capabilities for photography, woodworking, silk screening, and sheet metal.
Stained Glass Resources is fully insured in the areas of liability, care and custody, transportation and worker's compensation. Windows and equipment are transported in a specially outfitted site vehicle, which has a custom designed compartment for storage of the windows. It has a low-chassis design, as well as special tires and soft-ride springs for maximum protection of the windows in transit. The vehicle is fully secured by an elaborate alarm system complete with security pager and cell phone.
Our philosophy is to educate our clients as much as possible. For this reason, we provide studio tours by appointment. I encourage you to visit us for an excellent educational experience that will help you in your decision-making process. (Be sure to take the Studio Tour which is a part of this Web Site.) I would also like to direct your attention to the booklet on restoration, which is located in our Library. It answers many of the frequently asked questions about Stained Glass Restoration.
