Period Lead Windows Wiltshire



Lead windows are a very popular choice for homeowners looking to maintain the traditional look and feel of their period property and are even installed in more modern homes looking to capture the charm of a more historic time. Maintaining and repairing period lead windows is no easy task and it’s important that any window repairs or replacements are consistent with the original period window style in order to not look out of place.
What are period lead windows?
Leaded windows were first seen during the 15th century where strips of lead were used as a way to connect smaller pieces of glass together to form a larger window. They remained popular in domestic settings up to the beginning of the 17th century when glass making techniques advanced to be able to cope with larger panes and the development of sash windows replaced them in household settings. Later in the 19th century, a gothic revival brought lead windows back into the public eye and many houses were built with diamond lead windows or lead glass decorative panels, particularly around their front doors. During the 20th century, leaded windows remained a focal point for decoration and even now, during the present day, they are still regarded as one of the most decorative styles.
