Step 1

Take a picture and email it to repair@potekglass.com. We need to know that the project is in our wheelhouse.  Once we have an image we can give a preliminary estimate.

Step 2

Schedule a time to bring the repair into the shop, or arrange for pickup.  Trip charges in the Twin Cities Metro area start at $250 plus any time to remove an installed repair.  After we have your project in the shop we can finalize an accurate estimate.  If the estimate is a go, we will ask for a deposit to place your repair in queue. Our repairs start at $125.

Step 3

Once the repair is complete come and pick up your piece or schedule to have it installed.  Final payment is due upon completion.  We request pickup be completed with 14 days. Completed projects left in the shop after 45 days are subjuect to a $5/day charge.

Care Instructions:

After repair each piece is cleaned thoroughly. Aside from a gentle dusting, your piece may never need to be cleaned. We don’t recommend using glass cleaners or other chemical cleaners on any piece of stained glass, since they may damage the lead, solder, glass, and integrity of the piece. If cleaning is required, use a damp towel or rag. 

For copper-foiled and soldered pieces (Tiffany method), from time to time, solder or lead may oxidize and leave a whitish substance on its surface. Gently clean with dish soap and water, then seal with a stained glass sealant or a high-quality carnuba wax using a towel or rag. Never use chemical cleaners nor anything abrasive on your glass piece. If you can’t get the “tarnish" off, contact us about our cleaning services
