Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (April 22, 2008)
Beginning April 22, 2010, the EPA requires that firms performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and kindergartens built before 1978 must be EPA- or state-certified and must use certified renovators who follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. This includes in-house maintenance staff and many types of outside contractors. For firms to be certified, they must submit an application and fee to EPA online. In order to become certified renovators, individuals must take training from an EPA-accredited training provider.
As an EPA certified renovation firm, Taylor Original Wood Window Restoration & Repair, LLC is committed to lead safe work practices that ensure the safety of it's customers and the environment.
