Surveys & Reports | Recclesia Stained Glass

Condition Reports & Conservation Plans

Examining stained glass, understanding significance and identifying condition issues prior to any work being carried out is absolutely essential. Without this knowledge it is impossible to understand problems or schedule works with confidence.

We have extensive experience of inspecting and assessing stained glass and historic glazing. This experience and knowledge along with our academic qualifications enable us to put together condition reports and conservation plans for glass of historic significance and architectural or artistic merit.

Reports are usually commissioned for the following purposes:


Reports follow both CVMA and Church Building Council guidance on the drafting of Conservation Reports for Ecclesiastical Buildings.

We have decades of experience carrying out remedial conservation work to hundreds of windows here in the UK and in the Republic of Ireland, so we know what we are looking at and how to ameliorate difficult problems with a light touch and to best conservation standards.
