Antique Glass Restoration
Our antiquities are precious to us, and when an item is broken, chipped or compromised in some manner, having a qualified glass restoration company close at hand is a lifesaver. Antiques have the rare quality of connecting us to the past or people no longer in our lives. In the context of aesthetics, flaws and imperfections visually mar the piece.
If sufficiently visible, it may make the item impossible to display. Fortunately, chipped, scratched, cracked or broken glass can be reconstructed, and the piece can be restored to its original splendor. It takes a well-seasoned and skilled restoration specialist to properly restore antique glass pieces. The last thing any person want is a sloppy patch job done at the hands of an impatient, inexperienced person. Ensure the preservation of your antique glass by relying on the professionals at Art Restoration Experts for glass restoration in Chicago.

Restoration Techniques For Glass
We primarily use two specific techniques for restoring glass. The first is a traditional process of grinding and polishing to eliminate chips and scratches. This procedure is effective for minor and surface damage that takes away from the glass object’s overall beauty. The other technique is used for the restoration of pieces beyond repair capabilities of grinding and polishing. It involves using glass-like epoxies to essentially “rebuild” the damaged areas to create a unified and structurally sound piece.
