Antioch United Methodist Church, Antioch, IL - Conrad Schmitt Studios restored historic stained glass windows for Antioch United Methodist Church. The project was completed in three phases. The process involved removal of windows and delivery to the Studio, documentation, dismantling and removal of old brittle lead, repair or replacement of damaged glass, replacement of deteriorating painted glass with new replicated glass, and releading of the panels back to their original glory. Window frames were prepped and screened inserts installed in breather holes for insect-free ventilation. The installation of the restored panels, along with safety laminated storm glass, will ensure the beautiful worship space for generations to come.
