NEW* EPA Lead Regulations:
As of April 22, 2010, the EPA has instituted new guidelines and regulations for the renovation and/or remodel of homes built prior to 1978, the year that the manufacturing of lead-based paint was prohibited. If lead is present wtihin paint on building components above Colorado's action level, any activity impacting these components must be conducted using "lead safe" work practices and RRP (Renovation, Repair, and Painting) Certified contractors. To determine if lead-based paint is present, an inspection must be conducted by a State of Colorado certified lead-based paint inspector.
An inspection must occur if more than six square feet of interior surfaces or twenty square feet of exterior surfaces will be disturbed, or ANY window is being replaced. Most all contractors, and any window contractor, working in homes built before 1978 containing lead-based paint must be "RRP certified" to do so and must employ "certified" workers per the new regulations.
DS Consulting can inspect your pre-1978 home for the presence of lead-based paint prior to your remodel, renovation or window replacment. Please call (303) 378-1544 for more information and to schedule an inspection to comply with EPA regulations and to avoid costly delays in your project. Please visit our lead page for more information on lead.
