Condition Report & Restoration Recommendations
A condition analysis of stained glass windows consists of an on-site investigation that determines the
- Condition of the glass
- Condition of the glass paint
- Condition of the lead came and structural support systems, as much as can be determined from a non-destructive investigation
- Condition of the protective glazing or covering, if present, and
- Effect of other conditions of the building on the stained glass windows, as much as can be determined from a non-destructive investigation
A sample condition analysis of one of the 33 stained glass windows in Trinity Church, Boston, gives a sense of the necessary thoroughness of such a report.
