Glass Heritage LLC was founded in Davenport, Iowa in 2004 and has been an accredited professional member since 2008. For a studio to become a fully accredited professional member of the Stained Glass Association of America (SGAA), the studio must undergo a rigorous review that examines their technical ability, business practices, health and safety program, and compliance with OSHA and environmental policies. The studio must also have completed a single installation exceeding 250 square feet.
Through the initial meetings, we gained confidence in entrusting our irreplaceable 130 year old windows to your care. In our regular visits to your shop, it was great to see the artists' pride and ownership taken in their work. They were always happy to spend time explaining the full restoration process as it occured. The windows are simply beautiful and we recommend your world-class talent and service to any organization in need of the highest quality restoration.
After a lengthy search we selected Glass Heritage to restore eight windows and replace the plexiglass protective coverings on these windows and a very large stained glass window in our sanctuary. This work was completed during the summer of 2015. The initial project was completed in a very high quality manner. The craftsmen were courteous, highly skilled and very professional during the entire project. The project was completed on schedule and the materials used were of excellent quality. The venting system used on the protective covering frame was superior to all other systems we have seen. Since this initial project, Wesley Church has contracted four additional projects to date with Glass Heritage.
The Trustees at Wesley Church cannot say enough good comments about Glass Heritage. Without any reservations, we soundly endorse Glass Heritage and highly recommend them for any stained glass restoration and / or new commission glass window projects you would be considering.
We thought that new vivid-colored glass had been used, but it was actually our original glass that had been thoroughly cleaned and set into new lead, displaying brilliant colors not seen in our lifetime! Glass Heritage truly works by The Golden Rule (they treat you as they would want to be treated) and we couldn't be happier.
