Info about my stained glass

Ontwerpschets van een glas in lood raam

I want a new design. Is that possible?

I design new, contemporary panels as well as classic stained glass windows and doors. If you already have an idea or a design, I will discuss the possibilities with you.

What is the price of stained glass?

The price has to do with many factors; the size, choice of glass types and the complexity of the design are of influence. I would be happy to visit you to view and discuss your wishes. You will then receive a clear quotation.

How do you insulate stained glass?

An effective method is to install stained glass into double glazing. The stained glass is located between the insulating glass. The sound insulation is also greatly improved.

Is restoration possible?

The lead of stained glass lasts about 80 years. When the old lead is ‘worn out’ I replace all the lead, preserving the existing glass. After this, your panel can last another 80 years!

One pane is broken. does everything need to be replaced?

That is usually not necessary. In most cases, I repair broken glass on site. If the lead itself is damaged or if more glass is broken, I will repair it at my workshop.

I have a panel door. Can you add stained glass?

That is possible! I remove the wooden panel and adjust the opening. I custom make the stained glass. The new see-through gives a nice spacious effect.

Can stained glass be replaced by insulating glass?

Stained glass can be mounted between insulating glass. I work with specialized companies that compose HR double glazing. My stained glass panels are mounted inside the new insulating glass window.

I already have insulating glass. Can there still be stained glass?

Yes, that is possible too. I place stained glass as a secondary window against your existing insulating glass. You have the advantages of the existing double glazing and the visual enjoyment of new stained glass.

Do you only work in Amsterdam?

No. My workshop is located in Diemen. I work mainly in Amsterdam and the surrounding area. But also in Hilversum, the Gooi and the Zaanstreek. In consultation, I take on work throughout the Netherlands.

I order a new window, will I be without my window for a while? ​

No worry. I discuss the design first, measure the dimensions of the existing window. I will make the new stained glass window in my workshop. When it is ready, I install the new window.

Do you place the glass yourself?

I always make and install the stained glass myself. I may do the placement in difficult places or at a greater height with others.
