Religious Stained Glass for Dallas Churches and Temples

For followers of any religion or denomination, a site of worship is an incredibly sacred and important place. A church or temple allows someone to have a place where they can focus on their interactions with their God and further pursue their beliefs. It is a place where knowledge is shared, relationships are built, and ultimately, a source of peace for people’s lives.

Because Dallas is located directly in the Bible belt, many of the neighborhoods and surrounding communities have been built around its churches. If you drive through these areas, you are bound to see some of the beautiful examples of religious art and religious stained glass that Dallas has to offer.

The project took approximately two years to complete. The first several months were spent on drafting designs and over the following 18 months, the stained glass pieces were manufactured and installed. In the end, we installed over 50,000 individual glass pieces with a total of about 300 complete stained glass pieces. Each glass pieces was fit with Low-E safety glass for the ultimate level of security and energy efficiency.The windows and doors were designed to ensure privacy while still allowing an ample amount of light to enter the building.

Throughout this time, we worked closely with members of the church, the architects, and other general contractors to ensure that the job was completed to the utmost perfection. In order to meet the exact desires of the Church, we had to take an innovate approach to our work and accomplish some tasks that had never previously been done before. This included creating a customized color of glass, building colored glass bevels, and creating windows that fit customized frames without having the opportunity to take site measurements.

The Final Results: Flawless Religious Stained Glass Artwork

After the project was completed, several experts were sent into the Temple to conduct thorough inspections. They closely examined everything from the upholstery to the tile and ceilings, including our stained glass work. Even after several rounds of inspections, not a single flaw was identified in our stained glass.
