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.

Check Out your Contractor!

You may have heard recent news stories in the Richmond area about folks posing as contractors, doing crappy jobs, and ultimately stealing from their clients, who are often left with a worse mess than they started with.

You can greatly lessen your odds of ending up in such an unfortunate situation by doing a little research on your contractor. You want someone who has taken the time, investment, and has the knowledge and skills to become licensed.

The Virginia Department of Occupational Regulation is the department in charge of, well, regulating contractors. Depending on the type of work you need done and the size of the job you will need a different type of contractor.

Whenever you are seeking bids for work, check your contractor online. It takes just a few minutes and can end up saving you thousands.

Type in the name of the company, owner, etc. to check the status of their license. Find us by searching for Karnage Creations.

Also, insurance can be an issue. We tell you we are licensed and insured, but you don’t have to take our word for it- look us up, and ask for a certificate of insurance.

These are just some of the most basic things that make a difference in the level of professionalism you can expect from Karnage Creations LLC.  We are here to work with you to help you solve your window problems. And if you don’t choose us, we urge you to choose a qualified, licensed, and insured contractor.

 

 

What We Do:

We restore/repair/renovate historic windows, you choose which ever one of those words you prefer.

We do free bids, so if you have a problem, we can come take a look, and give you a bid covering your options and associated costs to repair. We understand that sometimes things just need to be repaired in the short term fastest, cheapest way, and sometimes we are lucky enough to have the time and money to do things the right way. Communicate with us about your needs and thoughts and we will communicate back to try to clear up the process for you!

Parts of your windows you might need repaired that we can repair for you:

Sashlocks (missing, want to change, want cleaned, refinished)
Glass (broken, scratched, mismatched)
Glazing (weathered, missing, broken, cracked)
Sash cord or chain (broken, fraying, wrong type, jammed)
Trim (blind stop, parting bead, sash bead – could be broken, mismatched, rotten – we replace with similar, prime if needed)
Sashes (can have rotten or missing mullions, meeting rails, etc., othertimes they are out of square, need to be rebuilt, or built from scratch to start over)
Pulleys (maybe someone painted them shut, maybe you just want to put a shine on em)
Weights (sometimes weights and sashes are not matched well, and your sashes won’t behave properly)
Sashpulls (might need cleaning, replacing, finding a match for a missing one)

Rot- for wood that is rotten, but not in need of total replacement, we rely on the Wood Epox system to give a quality repair that will last for years. Compare to wood putty, bondo, or other insufficient means of repair employed by others.

Paint – We can paint, or strip paint as needed based on your windows. We also encounter windows that are painted or caulked shut, and can make them operable for you again.

Glass – We replace glass with 1/8 double strength glass in many cases. We can also source old (wavy) glass, tempered glass, etc. depending on the requirements of the job and your desires.

If you have wooden windows that you want fixed, whether you are a home owner, landlord, or contractor, please get in touch to see if we can work together to keep Virginia beautiful!
