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.

Our entire congregation is extremely pleased at the results delivered by the gifted artisans that tackled this project. It is an honor to give our highest recommendation to Glass Heritage.
Since 2015, we have worked with Glass Heritage on several art glass projects to restore and preserve our historic houses’ hundred-year-old windows. With close to 100 leaded glass windows, the staff has been flexible in working with our timelines and budget. They have also been open to educational efforts, inviting our staff to tour their shop and partner on outreach projects. In short, we could not be more impressed or appreciative of the finished product and their willingness to share expertise with our staff and the public.
From beginning to end, Glass Heritage impressed us with their professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to restoring antique windows. We are extremely fortunate to have a local company with their expertise, as well as a commitment to the criteria set by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards and Guidelines for Historical Preservation.
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.
