The following pictures demonstrate some of the phases "before" and "after" for a project.

The exposed woodwork was weathering at a rapid pace. Problems with the woodwork were addressed thoroughly with repairs, replacement, and reinforcement.

The ornate and highly decorated stained glass panels were also quite distressed owing to the deteriorated lead.

The stained glass panels were removed and transferred to soaking pans.

The panels were disassembled.

The panels were rebuilt using new "restoration grade" lead with high contents of tin, antimony, and copper for extended life.

The rebuilt panels are grouted (cemented) with a waterproofing material on both sides.

Notice below how the wood is all covered now with the "brick to brick method." Care was taken in the framing to support the main design of the frame while still keeping the installation reasonably serviceable. --St. Mary's, Sleepy Eye, MN

Trinity Lone Oak Lutheran Church
Eagan, Mn.

A new doubleglazed aluminum ventilator frame was installed. Before the artglass was re-installed, it was completely rebuilt. Originally the artglass had been in sliding sash in doublehung windows. The design was interrupted in the center by the wood frames. This configuration more nearly completes the feel and balance of the original design.
