Stained Glass Dallas
Stained glass is not just something that was installed only in churches when Dallas was coming into its own. Around the turn of the 20th-century stained glass was put in various types of buildings as the west boomed. From retail stores to banks and bars–stained glass was a noteworthy trend. This same commercial stained glass, made over 100 years ago, is now due for restoration. This is because it was only made to last about 100 years before needing restoration so it could fall into permanent disrepair if not attended to. But, there are other reasons to do so– quite a few! Below we have listed some of the most compelling reasons to have the stained glass in your Dallas commercial space brought back to life.
Restoring Commercial Stained Glass Strengthens Community Ties
When we work with Dallas churches to restore their stained glass windows– the entire community tends to come together to help. Commercial spaces are no different. If your stained glass is over 100 years old, it is considered historical. This means community historical preservation societies and even grants are likely available to help. These organizations are the gateway to those around your commercial venture. Restoration then, allows your business to interact with the community in a unique way to benefit the community.
Restoring Commercial Stained Glass Attract New Clients
Stained glass is stunning and that is likely the reason it was installed in your commercial space in the first place. It was meant to attract people and improve the stock of the establishments it graced. Whatever your stained glass looks like now, it likely pales in comparison to what it will look like once the glass is restored. When you invest your time and money in the stained glass of your Dallas commercial space, it is sure to pay off by attracting foot traffic and likely, new customers.
Restoring Commercial Stained Glass Preserves A Piece of Dallas History
As it were, stained glass windows in commercial spaces are a lovely part of Dallas’s storied history. Some of these windows were likely made by burgeoning artisans or studios in Dallas’s past and have a rich history behind them. Moreover, if your Dallas location was prominent enough to install stained glass, it was likely quite a hub back in the city’s early days. Therefore, by restoring the historic stained glass, you are doing your part in preserving the “Frontier” past Dallas is known for.

So your stained glass is looking a little shabby and you’re wondering what to do about it? Don’t worry. You’re not the first person to face this same predicament. Many historic homes in Dallas have stained glass windows. When stained glass gets to a certain age, repairs are needed to keep the windows in optimal condition.
But if the previous homeowner didn’t stay on top of the maintenance, you may find that more work has to be done than you expected. On that case, you’re probably wondering if it’s better just to remove the window entirely. We think not! Here’s why you should consider repairing the stained glass in your Dallas home.
We all need privacy in our homes. There’s really no reason for the neighbors to see us running around in our underwear or pajamas at early hours of the morning. The problem is, the way that people usually create privacy is by installing curtains or blinds. Can you say yuck?
Instead of covering up your windows with some drab drapes, you should consider opting for decorative glass instead. Unique and sophisticated, stained glass offers Dallas homeowners tons of different design possibilities for creating privacy and also enhancing aesthetics overall.
