Glass installations that showcase our talent
Also known as lead light windows, leaded lights are decorative stained and non-coloured windows made of glass and lead, in which the sections of glass are held in place by lead canes or strips. In British homes leaded lights are traditionally seen above the entranceway or in a small hallway window, reflecting gorgeous colours as the sun shines in and creating a traditional, fanciful look from the outside.
Somerville Glass and Windows Ltd is one of the few companies in Reading that have the ability and expertise to work with lead lighting. By blending the latest glasswork technology with time-honoured skill, we hope to keep traditions like this alive.

Though we believe in stylising your property and ensuring your building is equipped with the latest glazing and security technology, we’ll never make our customers spend money if they don’t need to. That’s why our glaziers offer repairs as well as new installations.
Once we’ve evaluated the damage, we’ll recommend the best way forward to enhance your leaded lights without conducting a full replacement. We’re always open and honest with our customers and will never recommend work if it doesn’t need doing!
