Winona, MN. Reinarts Stained Glass Studios announces the availability of the Reinarts Stained Glass Appraisal Guide. The purpose of the guide is to enable church and synagogue leaders to determine the replacement values of their stained glass windows. Reinarts Stained Glass Appraisal GuideThe guide was developed with the input of some thirty major American stained glass studio executives and was years in the making. The guide was developed as a resource for churches and synagogues at the request of the insurance companies. Other questions answered by this guide are how often should your stained glass windows be inspected? What is entailed in an inspection? What are the stages of restoration and how often are they performed? What should you look for when inspecting your stained glass windows? What types of glass are used in window coverings? Learn the values of windows and what makes one worth more than another. Learn the 12 variables that affect stained glass window values. And learn five elements of new stained glass windows.


The method to appraise your stained glass windows is straight-forward. Review the sample pictures of stained glass windows and choose the one closest in style to yours. Each of the window styles has as many as nine different estimated average price per square foot based on the input of 28 stained glass studios. Select the average price per foot for your area. Then using the recommended procedure for measuring square footage, calculate the value of each of your stained glass windows. In addition, you will find the chapter “How to Appraise Stained Glass” most helpful.
