Lead Certified Renovator
As of April of 2010 all contractors who work on homes built before 1978 that have lead based paint are required to be a Lead-Certified Renovator by federal law. We are a certified RRP contractor (Renovation, Repair & Painting) allowing us to legally work on homes built before 1978 that have lead based paint. We take the lead based paint issue very seriously and use the latest testing, masking and cleanup procedures to ensure that we do not spread lead dust or contaminate your home with this deadly toxin. Below are resources regarding lead based paint and the hazards that it poses especially to children ages 0-6 and women who are currently pregnant.
