Default Stained glass repair

Hello all

Would anybody know if it's possible to get a few leaded lights in my windows replaced? A neighbour told me that I'd probably have to get entire panes re-designed and replaced, but I'm hoping that someone out there knows of a cheaper solution!

You really need to call a local glass company and get a professional to look at it. Repairs are possible, but I have never seen one that wasn't obvious. The color of the solder, the slight differences in color of the replaced glass, the difference in the prismatic effect of the bevels.. They can be mass produced, but it takes a certain artistic talent to repair.

You can also stop by your local stained glass church and see who and how someone is repairing theirs.
