LEADLIGHT REPAIRS

Adelaide Leadlight Centre has repaired, restored and rebuilt thousands of leadlight panels over more than 35 years. 
Our aim is always to return your broken leadlight to "as new" condition.
  
We hold a huge stock of old glass and recognise the importance of providing you with an authentic repair. 
Most damaged leadlights need to be removed from their frames to be repaired.  We will install temporary glass or timber to secure your property while we are working on your window/s.

IF YOU HAVE A BROKEN LEADLIGHT, CALL US FOR A FREE ASSESSMENT AND QUOTE.

ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE

Broken glass in leadlights can be readily repaired.  In most instances the broken panel will need to be removed from its frame and taken to our studio for repair.  Occasionally, if the panel is too large or difficult to remove, we may choose to repair it in situ, rather than risk doing further damage.

WEAR & TEAR

Well constructed leadlights will last more than a century with little attention, however, some older leadlights, particularly those installed in doors, may suffer lead fatigue and cracking.  Once the lead damage is advanced, the panel could need to be dismantled and rebuilt, returning it to better than new condition.
We will sometimes recommend inclusion of reinforcement or double glazing to ensure a longer life for your restored leadlight.

RESTORATIONS

Adelaide Leadlight Centre also restores leadlights that may not require any immediate repairs.
Once in our workshop, we will scrub away the decades of grime, dirt and paint from the glass.  If required, we will resolder broken joints, replace cracked pieces of glass, replace border leads and wire ties. 
Finally, we'll re-putty and polish the panels, revealing the original beauty of the leadlights. 
The difference is amazing.
