Stained Glass Window Assembly Timelapse
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions when it comes to commisioning us to Create a Custom Stained Glass Window.
How much does it cost?
We don't disclose our rate for custom work on our website but you can contact us for an estimate. Almost all Custom Work is priced by the Total Square Feet of the work to be built. Total Sq.Ft X Rate + Tax = Cost.
Why the cost?
Our rate covers Labor + Materials. Labor is the biggest influence on our rate. If you can spare a moment and watch the time-lapse we filmed of a custom stained glass window for the Salvation Army it provides a good understanding of the amount of time and hands-on labor it takes to build a stained glass window.
Pencil Drawing/Design > Color Choice > Template Creation > Cutting of Each Glass Piece by Hand > Grinding Sharp Edges Off Every Piece > Assembly > Double Check All Measurements & Squareness > Solder Front & Back > Prep for Putty/Glazing > Handmix and Apply Putty/Glazing to Both Sides > Time to Set > Clean off Excess Putty/Glazing on Both Sides > Dry > Prep for Black Patina Finish > Apply Black Patina Acid to Both Sides > Wax Both Sides > Buff & Polish Both Sides.
How long does it take to build?
A number of factors influence the time it may take to build your custom window: Current Commissioned Work in Progress, Size of the window, the complexity of design, design drawing & approval, color choice availability and assembly time. A typical 6-8sq.ft window can take 3-4 weeks assuming there are no other windows and/or repair work in progress ahead of yours.
