We make traditional leaded lights in house and have been making these for the past 20 years; both making completely new or remaking old damaged ones using the best of the existing glass.
These can be made to the customer’s specification or we are very happy to discuss the design and coloured glass.
Traditional lead lights are made by cutting the lead and shaping the lead to the design then fitting the shaped glass pieces in between the lead and soldering. They are then cemented in before finally cleaning ready for glazing.
A new and alternative method of having a “leadlight look” is to have a stick on lead applied to a pane of glass, usually these are made to a rectangle or diamond look or to give colour a 'film' can be applied.
Broken leadlights can some times be repaired in situe or taken out and repared on the bench at the work shops. Small cracks or broken panes can be repaired on site if the lead is not to badly broken. The cleaning of leadlights can also be done.
