Leaded Light Restoration

We are an Accredited Conservation Studio recognised by the Institute of Conservation, P.A.C.R. for Churches and fine houses but are just as happy working for the general public in your own homes

From early liaising with our client we personally see every tiny detail through to the final completely restored window, this includes position recognition and early photography then carefully removing the panel from its stonework/timber/iron surround and boarding over securely.

At our workshop in Horsham, West Sussex we are fully equipped to rebuild your glass. Your glass will never be discarded, but rebuilt with new English Hand Drawn Lead Came.

Lead Came is the ‘H’ section lead that hold the glass in position often in sinuous lines. This is a huge subject, in Conservation terms we use ‘nothing but the best’

Over the years lead came has been produced in many different ways and with many different ingredients, but in our opinion there is only one lead came and that is ‘Hand milled’ and as close to pure lead as possible.

Hand milled lead came is exactly the same as the lead came used by the Victorians we can produce it with a slim 1mm heart and in some 30 different profiles thickness and heart height to match exactly the original.

Over that past few years we have be liaising with English Heritage to try to find exactly what is the best lead came for longevity. We approached several of the leading Conservation Studios in this country and asked them for samples of spent lead came from various Conservation projects. By using the best materials possible will inject an additional 100 years of servicable life into your failed or bowing leaded lights.

In addition we are also able to restore your traditional opening windows by using skilled craftsmen in their respective trades. We are able to restore or replace metal and timber windows.
