Thanks Lansing!

Can you spot the Karnage Construction team in this picture? Hint: we do not wear khakis or uniforms. Very grateful to @lansing_bp for holding this event yesterday.

Recent Decks and Pergolas

Here are some examples of the high quality decks, porches and pergolas our crew can build. If you are looking for precision, quality materials, and unique design reach out. We have build decks and pergolas around pools. Working with our masons and block work installers can leave you with a stunning backyard.

Replace old vinyl ceilings with wood, PVC, or Hardie plank products for a classy and long lasting feature of your outdoor area. Paired with outdoor fans, lighting, sound systems and grills, turn your home into a haven.

We can build railings to suit your style, from traditional wooden to modern cattle panel or wire.

Let us guide you through your deck material selections. We excel at pressure treated, various brands and colors of composite, and high end woods like Ipe.

If you need respite from the bugs, we can build you a screened porch, or restore an existing one.

We also work with clients to develop nice looking and useful ways to enclose the undersides of their porches. Whether that be lattice or horizontal boards or something else, we can help you keep critters (and kids) out, and make that space lockable and useful for keeping items like lawn mowers in.

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.

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.

Eco- Friendly Restoration

At Karnage Creations LLC we are always looking for ideas to help make the window restoration process more environmentally friendly – in the short and long terms.

We eschew vinyl as being an inferior product, with a shorter functional lifespan, and a longer decomposition time (does it ever go away?!?!l) than the more traditional wood.

We also keep chemicals in mind. Harsh chemicals are destructive to the environment, our clients, and us! We use alternatives as often as possible.

For instance, we have shifted from using windex or similar products to clean glass to using white vinegar. Just that much less toxicity in the world, and we think, a more streak free product.

When it comes to certain aspects of restoring windows we might not have a choice, but for paint removal from hardware we do. We use no chemicals to strip paint from pulleys, sash locks, sash pulls, screws, old door knobs, miter locks, hinges, and rim locks. Its less harsh on the hardware, ourselves, and the world we have to share and protect for our children. If you have old hardware, even non window related, let us bid cleaning it for you.

We are always open to ideas on how to improve the eco friendly aspects of our job, feel free to get in touch if you share a passion for doing things in a healthier way.
