Window World Confirms EPA Certification under New Lead Paint Renovation Law
Date:4/22/2010

Beginning April 22, 2010, a new regulation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires contractors that disturb lead-based paint in homes, businesses and schools constructed before 1978 to be certified and follow stringent procedures to prevent lead contamination. Window World, Inc., the nation’s largest replacement window company, has received EPA certification for lead-based Repair, Renovation and Painting (RRP) at all of its more than 200 locations.

N. Wilkesboro, NC (PRWEB) April 22, 2010 -- Beginning April 22, 2010, a new regulation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires contractors that disturb lead-based paint in homes, businesses and schools constructed before 1978 to be certified and follow stringent procedures to prevent lead contamination. Window World, Inc., the nation’s largest replacement window company, has received EPA certification for lead-based Repair, Renovation and Painting (RRP) at all of its more than 200 locations.

The new regulation will apply to paid renovations of all buildings constructed before 1978 when the federal government banned the use of lead-based paint and other materials. Contractors who do not comply risk expensive fines, jail time and customer safety to keep prices lower. Homeowners can take control by educating themselves about lead renovation and requiring proper certification from contractors.

“Though many companies in the industry such as Window World are diligently meeting EPA requirements, it’s important for homeowners to take a proactive approach to the new regulation,” said Dana Deem, vice president at Window World, who oversaw the company’s EPA certification. “Homeowners, particularly those with a high risk of lead exposure, seeking renovation work from third-party contractors should confirm that the vendor is a Lead-Safe Certified Firm.”

Window World professionals are trained to assess lead hazards, test for lead-based paint, prepare homes for lead renovation and follow the EPA guidelines for disturbances to lead-based paint.

One of the most common methods of lead exposure is through lead dust, which often increases during renovation activities. The EPA reports that exposure to lead is associated with developmental and behavioral problems in children and high blood pressure and hypertension in adults, among other significant health risks.

“Although the new EPA law creates changes for our business, we have embraced it,” said Deem. “This is an important step to ensure the safety and health of individuals with a risk of lead exposure during a renovation.”
