All windows we work on at Scottish Stained Glass include installation. Did you know there are multiple ways to install your new stained glass? We typically prefer one of two methods depending on where the glass will be installed. If we are installing in a standard window, we prefer to use the bonding method. However, if the glass will be installed in very wet areas of the bathroom or other areas similar in your home, then we like to use the technique of sandwiching our product between two panes of tempered glass.
At Scottish Stained Glass in Salt Lake City, our preferred installation method is bonding. We would rather use this method for most installs since it is cost effective, quick, and allows us to add our glass in your window without compromising the thermal efficiency. We can bond to various types of window panes: single, double, or triple, and our installation ultimately becomes an additional pane. If your existing window had grids on the pane, our designers at Scottish will create your pane so the lead lines will cover any shadows or existing lines so the installation looks flawless from the inside of your home.
Sandwiching is the other technique we use here at Scottish to install stained glass. This technique is necessary for some of our installs and we recommend it if your double paned window has grids that can be removed easily.
When working on new construction projects, compliance with local building codes is becoming increasingly important. Unbreakable safety glass is the standard for some residential and commercial projects. Here at Scottish, we are always up to date on the Salt Lake City’s area codes.
Your stained glass designer will be able to inspect the area and recommend the best technique for your installation. In many cases, before the construction process begins, our installer will visit your home or company to take measurements and confirm the ins and outs of the installation. If you have any questions regarding our stained glass process or how your glass might be installed, please contact us today.
