We make a rendering of the proposed window and review with client. Once finalized, we create full-size drawing of window to serve as a template (pattern) to build from.
Glass selections are then cut to size from the pattern and any beveling added into project goes to the four stage process to produce a clear finished bevel.
The window is assembled by carefully wrapping each piece of glass and/or in lead came. Narrow strips of lead are used to keep the glass in place to create a panel. Lead is material of choice because of its flexibility and adaptability.
The glass panel is then cemented or stuccoed to help secure the glass within the leads to waterproof the window or door. Sawdust and plater are used to harden the putty and polish the window to final luster.
Cured windows are now ready for installation. existing window and door frames can be used and/or modified to accept the new window. In some instances custom frames can be produced to hang inside an opening.
