As mentioned, there are a number of different stained glass installation methods so finding one that is right for your home stained glass project is really about what you want to achieve. These methods range from very easy (done in one day) to more difficult. However, the one thing that rings true is–regardless of which method you choose, Colorado Springs Stained Glass excels at it!

Stained Glass Installation Method 1: The Most Popular

The bonding method is easily the most widely used techniques in stained glass installation. In fact, it accounts for 75% of installs here at Colorado Springs Stained Glass. It is a simple, quick, and clean option for any window under 4ft. The straightforward process involves a custom stained glass panel(s) being applied over your home’s existing window. It is no-frills and quick but always stunning. Not only does it look good–it has the added benefit of little extra protection from the solid glass pane.

Stained Glass Installation Method 2: Great For New Construction

Another popular method is the triple pane method. This application is great for areas that get excessive moisture or are trying to meet stringent glass building codes (i.e. new construction). In this method, the stained glass is sandwiched and sealed between two tempered pieces of glass. This keeps moisture out and stops condensation from forming inside the glass. It is safe and easy to clean and our clients just love it for their bathroom stained glass.

Stained Glass Installation Method 3: Hanging Stained Glass Panels

The final stained glass application method is something we refer to as hook hanging. This is when we create a custom stained glass panel in our world-class studio and fit it with hooks on the outer edge of its frame. These type of “stained glass art pieces” are easily hung on walls, in front of windows or free suspended. This is the best idea for Colorado Springs homeowners who plan to move their panel.
