Question DetailsAsked on 11/23/2015

Need a broken leaded glass window repaired onsite. Who can do that?

Living room window with several leaded clear glass panels. One panel (6x9) broken by my dog needs to be replaced. It is not something I can remove and take to a shop. Need an onsite installed. Leading is not broken so doesn't need to be repaired. Portland Oregon.

I would say a Stained Glass company - not an Angies List category but shows up on google and yellow pages and such as a contractor category - so google for stained glass companies in your town, then cross-check on AL to see if reviewed/rated.

Be aware some will come up that are artists who do stained glass art - not windows, or at leat not window repair. I would NOT go with one who saysd they do stained glass and can probably do a window - you want someone with experience in this.

Another possible source would be local large church administration offices (Catholic diocese or such) and ack who they use to repair their stained glass windows.

Also - if you know who you bought the window from, or the brand name, local dealer might do repairs or know who does.

BTW - the leading DOES have to be redone around the pane broken, because that is what holds the glass in - the leading encapsulates the glass on both sides and "grips" it, holding it in place. Not all the leading - just that contacting the glass.

And expect problems finding a company who can do it in-place, without taking the window out. Hopefully this is a sash or such that can be removed - because true vertical leading, which I have seen once, is a VERY slow job - basically soldering a fraction of an inch at a time all around the glass pane.
