Repair - The repair of stained glass is generally a temporary fix to prolong the lifespan of the structure of the original matrix of the stained glass window. A repaired panel should last around five to ten years.

Conservation - Conservation of a stained glass window can be compared to routine maintenance. If a window is in generally good shape however, has minor problems conserving the stained glass stops the minor problems from becoming major ones.

Restoration - The restoration of a stained glass window is returning a window to like -new or better condition. Restoration is much more time complicated, time consuming and requires a considerably higher skill level of craftsmen.
