Good News – We’ve gone Vinyl

Good news everyone!!! We are finally transitioning to #vinylwindow installation! Old windows are gross and don’t look good. We recommend you replace old #historicwindows with shiny new plastic ones, preferably manufactured in #sweatshop conditions in another country – to save you money!

Bellona Arsenal Work

We have recently been privileged to work on the Bellona Arsenal building in Chesterfield. The Bellona Arsenal predates the Civil War and was second only to the historic Tredegar Iron Works. It’s historic use as a foundry and arsenal is finished, but is on the National Registry of Historic Places and is now a private home.

We helped restore the double hung windows.

Above are pictures of the windows we restored. These were in relatively good condition when we started our work.

Below is the historic Bellona Arsenal

Getting jobs like this, where we are able to be involved in the preservation of unique historical sites, really gives our work meaning. We are proud of what we do, and the role we play in keeping Virginia’s historic buildings in good shape.

Of course, not every job is on the National Registry of Historic Places. Don’t be shy about reaching out, we are always happy to meet new people and see how we might be of service in your renovation project.

New Study Shows Restored 200 Year Old Window As Effective As Brand New Replacement

Selling a house? Buying a house? Let us worry about the windows.

The Richmond Real Estate market is booming. Many people selling and buying houses are finding out that they need their windows to be functional in order to pass inspection.

Window functionality is a safety issue. If sashes have been painted shut or the ropes have been cut or broken, those windows can prevent people from making a timely egress in case of a fire.

Additionally, many people want the option of opening their windows to enjoy the breeze or ventilate a bathroom or kitchen.

Karnage Creations LLC specializes in wooden window restoration. We do a lot of historic windows as well. If your home has wooden windows you need tuned up, get in touch.

We work for resident clients as well as for other contractors. We can fix just a few windows, or work with you during a whole home renovation.

We can unstick, rehang, reglaze, replace glass, and more. Don’t let windows mess up your timeline for selling or moving. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to bid your work.
