Quite often door panels will start to deteriorate whilst the rest of the door surround is in good condition. The challenge with a door repair like this is to find matching glass which will fit in with the original design. This door panel was fully restored, and glass was found to match as close as possible to the surround. Door panels often need repair or restoration to cope with constant movement. Spring steal reinforcing was added to the panel to to ensure it remains strong for years to come.
This old girl came in for repairs, in need of a full restoration. In the studio it was re-leaded, glass was sourced to match broken pieces, finally it was puttied and polished, it certainly is shining now. Much thanks to David who worked on this project with us to bring it back to life again. No longer a ship wreck, it is now ready to sail again.
These twelve windows may have been small, but they do big things to these sash windows. As you can see from the pictures this classic home is in the process of restoration, and its new window highlights are now right at home and will be for many years to come. One of the things we love to see at Ageless is people restoring beautiful homes and capturing our great Victorian architectural history.
Windows repaired and ready for new windows
Weather looking internally or externally this bathroom window is spectacular with in highlights of colour and many textures. This panel matches the beauty of this home and was a joy to create.
These door panels were in need of repair. Internal doors can have quite a lovely effect on the warmth and feel of a home. These panels were no exception, now back and repaired they make a great entrance again to this kitchen and hallway.
Wow, what a difference, such warmth added to this entry way with just a splash of colour. At Ageless we love a great restoration challenge, but we also really enjoy creating new works for clients whom have decided to commission a new leadlight for their home.
“Michael and Keith have been brilliant to deal with. We’re thrilled with the result. The design and workmanship has exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.”
What a great please to repair this stained glass and copper foil mirror for our client. This mirror was lovingly made by a grandmother for her grandchildren. It has been cherished for many years and now being passed onto the youngest grandchild with a small repair it will live on for many more years.
This little gem came to us in good condition, all the glass was in order however the lead was very tired and brittle. Michael re-leaded this piece, it was then puttied and polished. This family piece, made by our clients father, will now be cherished for many years to come.
Many older homes in need of restoration are also home to leadlight panels in need of love and repair. As you can see from these before an after pictures, restoring these broken sash windows has brought them back to life and they are as good as new. If you are lucky enough to be part of a home restoration you will know the satisfaction of seeing each piece restored to its original glory.
Crystal cabinet doors can often become brittle over time and loose their sparkle, this panel was in fairly good condition but needed a revamp. Once replied this piece was puttied and curved as it air dried to fit this 1930s designed cabinet. Elegant pieces such as these never go out of style.
