Worship Lighting

Are members of your congregation arriving early to secure one of the limited seats under a light fixture, ensuring adequate lighting for reading? Do you receive complaints from brides and wedding photographers about discolored or dim lighting? Are you facing challenges finding replacement lamps for outdated sockets or bulbs? Or are your existing light fixtures becoming a costly burden?

Artech presents lighting solutions that utilize LED technology, providing warm illumination to enhance the worship experience. Whether you prefer pendant fixtures, chandeliers, or wall sconces, our team is fully prepared to assist you in realizing your vision. Let us help you enhance your worship space with our expert lighting solutions.

When should our church in Rhode Island have light fixtures versus just relamping or refurbishing the existing light fixtures?

If the fixtures are discolored, brittle, broken, or have limited lighting capability (e.g., single down-facing lamp), or if they require special or obsolete bulbs, we recommend replacing them with new fixtures. Artech offers a diverse selection of pendants, chandeliers, and wall sconces in traditional and contemporary styles, designed to enhance your house of worship while being energy-efficient. Contact Artech to discuss your lighting needs and request a catalog to explore available options.

For existing light fixtures with incandescent or fluorescent bulbs in a standard size (usually medium-based screw-in style), relamping with LED bulbs might be a viable option. Contact Artech for further details and information.

If the existing light fixtures have historical or architectural importance, we recommend considering lighting refurbishment or restoration. Numerous lighting styles can be enhanced and modernized with new LED lamping, allowing them to be appreciated in the present and future while preserving their original craftsmanship. 

Does my church need a lighting designer?

While existing light fixture placements in a long-standing house of worship are typically satisfactory, it is possible that the style, materials, or current lighting may not meet modern standards. Artech Church Interiors, Inc. has a skilled team of craftsmen that can enhance and improve your Sanctuary and Nave lighting. In most cases, we can work with the existing layout, avoiding the need to hire a separate lighting designer and reducing costs.

If you still need a lighting designer, please contact us for a recommendation. We are here to assist you in achieving optimal lighting for your church.

Frequently Asked Questions

The duration of a church restoration project in Rhode Island depends on the scope of work and the size of the church. Minor repairs or refurbishing projects may take a few days to several weeks, while extensive restoration projects can span several months. Our experienced church restoration professionals will work closely with you to provide an estimated timeline for your specific project.

We highly recommend proactive planning for your church restoration endeavor. Popular religious holidays such as Easter, Christmas, Passover, and High Holy Days often serve as deadlines, so booking work early is crucial to secure a desired start date and ensure completion in advance. The colder months are ideal for inspections and budgeting. Because each project is customized, be sure to factor manufacturing lead times into your overall timeline. Trust Artech to help you plan and execute your project with ease. . 

We understand the importance of minimizing disruptions to church services and events during the restoration process. At Artech, we collaborate closely with our clients to create a restoration plan that minimizes downtime and disturbances to church activities. While temporary closure may be required in some cases, we strive to keep it to a minimum. Additionally, we are sensitive to the variations in worship days based on denomination and can accommodate unexpected funeral arrangements or other unplanned events. Rest assured that we prioritize the smooth continuation of your church’s operations throughout the restoration process.

Here are some indications that your church in New York may require restoration:

  • Attendance dropped or you are having trouble attracting new members because the worship space is no longer comfortable and inviting
  • Crumbling plaster, bubbling or peeling paint
  • Damaged or uncomfortable pews
  • Loud or broken kneelers
  • Windows or stained glass in disrepair
  • Water damage 

If you are uncertain about the need for restoration, we advise scheduling a consultation with our experienced church restoration contractors and specialists. They can assess the condition of your church and provide professional guidance tailored to your specific situation.

To request a consultation for your church restoration project, simply reach out to us through phone, email, or our website’s contact form.

We use only the highest quality commercial-grade materials for our church restoration projects, including wood, marble, tile, and stained glass. We understand the unique needs of each church and will recommend the best materials within the budget for your project.

If your church has a limited budget but a lengthy list of renovation projects, Artech is here to assist you. We understand the importance of optimizing your investment and can help you prioritize your projects effectively. Our team will recommend the improvements that will provide the most significant impact within your budget. 

Artech Church Interiors, Inc. offers two types of pew refinishing, and our team can make recommendations based on the construction and condition of your pews with your objective and budget in mind.  

Our on-site refurbishing process can be completed in a few days and includes the following:

  • Protect the work area and any adjacent areas that could be affected
  • Clean and scuff-sanding to the pews in their existing locations
  • Blend in a new finish as needed to match the existing finish as closely as possible
  • Apply a protective polyurethane finish.
  • If a color change or complete stripping and refinishing are desired, Artech can provide a budget for off-site refinishing. The refinishing process is as follows: 
    • Sketch floorplan of the existing pew layout and carefully number the pews
    • Loosen anchors from the floor, then carefully load and protect pews to our trucks.
    • Strip pews to the bare wood in our shop, then apply a new stain in the desired color.
    • Scuff sand between coats, then apply a protective polyurethane finish.
    • Allow time to cure, then transport pews back to the church or temple and reinstall pews to their original locations. 

Complete refinishing is a lengthy process.  Contact Artech’s team to discuss your project and arrange an on-site evaluation.  We will provide a budget for refinishing and an estimated timeline.

  • Our craftsmen can also repair or replace damaged parts for an additional fee.
  • We also refurbish and refinish frontal/privacy screens, other furnishings, and adjacent woodwork. 

If the existing all-wood pews are uncomfortable or the cushions or upholstery is worn, you may want to consider adding new cushions or upholstery as part of the refurbishment or refinishing process.  Each order is customized for your specific pews.  We can also reupholster chairs (in most cases) or provide new seats and back cushions.

To determine if your church or temple in New York requires new pews and chairs instead of refurbishing or refinishing the existing ones, consider the following:

  • Evaluate the condition of your existing pews: If the majority or all of your pews are exhibiting issues such as peeling, chipping, or cracking, especially if they are constructed from particle board with veneers, it is generally recommended to opt for new pews.
  • Assess the functionality of the seats: If the seats are sagging or if you have missing or broken supports, repairs may be possible. Feel free to reach out to us for more information and guidance. 

Artech can provide a professional evaluation of your current pews and advise you on the most suitable options. We will recommend refurbishments, repairs, refinishing, or guide you on whether investing in new pews would be a more prudent choice

Do you have a new building or know you need new seating?  Contact Artech today to discuss your needs, and we will guide you through the new pew and chair process from the start to the completed installation. 

Our team of experienced church restoration experts and craftsmen will work with you to ensure your church pews are refurbished to your specifications.
