Condition Assessments

Condition assessments are important documents that contribute to the historic record of buildings. Liberty's detailed assessments capture the existing conditions of each part of a window (glass, lead, glass paint, weatherproofing, setting, support, etc) and the surrounding area.

Additionally, the assessments include a research-based narrative that illustrates the window's significance within the built environment. This Statement of Significance can be used for grant or funding applications.

Monitoring & Maintenance

Often times stained glass windows are stable. In order to ensure their continued stability, Liberty offers monitoring and maintenance programs. These are non-interventive programs that allow you to keep track of your windows over time and identify issues before they become overwhelming and expensive. Elements can include a full set of dated photographs to help monitor change, disaster planning, and advice to caretakers and custodians. Liberty also offers advice for environmental monitoring.
