Stained Glass and Leaded Light Repairs – Isle of Wight. Handmade Leaded lights should last between 70-100 years but many houses with original leaded lights find that eventually the lead starts to oxidise and crack. In addition, panes can get cracked or damaged. If the lead structure remains in good condition they can be repaired on site. This provides a cost-effective way to improve the look of your leaded Light window panels. Repairs are priced at £60 for the first repair and £25 for each further one.
Alternatively, if the structure has started to crack it is better to replace with a new panel. This can happen particularly on diamond leaded lights which start to bulge out causing the potential of water ingress through the cracked lead.
