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.

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.
