Why should you insist on seeing this seal?
Common renovation, repair, and painting activities that disturb lead-based paint (like sanding, cutting, repairing windows, and more) can create hazardous lead dust and chips which can be harmful to adults and children.
Home repairs that create even a small amount of lead dust are enough to poison your child and put your family at risk. If you live in a home or apartment that was built before 1978, make sure you renovate right with a contractor that is EPA Lead-Safe Certified. Only contractors trained with approved courses and certified by EPA have learned about careful work practices and thorough clean-up, which will allow your home renovation or repair to be done safely and protect your family. It's Federal Law - so any contractor working in a home or child care facility built before 1978 without EPA certification could be operating illegally.
The Coach House Painting and Restoration is an EPA certified firm. We are serious regarding the safety of you and your family - so we have completed the EPA required training to become certified lead renovators for your protection.
So if you live in a home built prior to 1978, or if the build date of your home is in question, we will test for lead paint and work with you to complete the renovation safely - while making sure the results are what you want and deserve.
The EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 have their firm certified by the EPA, use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
Home repairs that create even a small amount of lead dust are enough to poison your child and put your family at risk. If you live in a home or apartment that was built before 1978 and are planning a renovation or repair project, make sure you renovate right with a Lead-Safe Certified contractor in accordance with EPA guidelines. They will know how to protect your family.
