Virginia Installations, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Jim Barrett and incorporated in 1997. We began the business by becoming a stocking distributor of Organized Living, Inc. closet organization systems that are manufactured in the United States. Over the years, we have expanded our services to sell and install many more products for the home, including framed and frameless shower enclosures, mirrors, door hardware and bath accessories. (See our Vendor List for product lines.)
As a small, local, family owned and operated company, we are quickly able to respond to our customers’ needs and requests, utilizing our own team of installers, management and fleet of service vehicles. Over the years, we have accumulated a vast wealth of knowledge and experience, improving and perfecting techniques of product installation from professionally installing deadbolts to highly-specialized areas such as complex closet systems and heavy glass frameless shower enclosures.
Virginia Installations is licensed and insured, and works primarily with contractors to sell and install products for residential construction. We also do light commercial projects such as apartment complexes or facilities for clients like Massanutten Resort. Our goal is to build long-term, friendly relationships with our builder community. Most of our clients remain with us for years. They’ve helped build us into the leading Closet Organization company in the Shenandoah Valley region.
Increasing volume led us to purchase our 6,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Elkton, VA, however, over the years, our success and steady growth has resulted in the outgrowth of that warehouse. Expansion plans are in the works for a full-service showroom and larger warehouse in the near future that will help us to better serve our customers’ needs, as they will be able to come in to see and feel the products we carry.
