Contractor Recommendations

We have no commercial or other affiliation with any stained glass studios, other than our professional relationship as consultant to the studios that are employed by owners to restore their windows.

We work with a wide selection of studios, and are willing to work with any qualified firm to carry out the work we feel is necessary. We feel that this point is of particular importance: consultants who are also stained glass craftspeople, or who have financial interest, such as a joint venture or limited partnership in a stained glass studio, have significant drawbacks for owners: they represent the stained glass industry, not the owner; their objectivity may be biased by their desire to obtain work or to get an "inside track" on their competition; and bidders are reluctant to submit the kind of information owners require when they know that the project's consultant is one of their competitors.
