Leaded panel repairs

New panel made to replace damaged one.

St Bartholomew, West Witton

Over time the lead holding the glass sections together  can deteriorate also the soldered joints can break  causing the panel to become loose.

The best course  of action here is to completely remove the whole panel  &  carry out the repair  in the workshop.

The panel can then be completely dismantled, re-leaded, soldered and cemented to give it its original strength and make it waterproof.

With this done the panel can be fitted back into the window frame.

Panels that have only minor damage such as a few cracked glass sections can  often be repaired in situ.
