New EPA Lead Based Paint rules you need to know

If you are the owner or buyer of a home built prior to 1978, you will want to be aware of new lead based paint rules that became effective on April 22, 2010.  Contractors and non-owner workers (like a friend or other non-licensed contractor) who perform work on a home that disturbs the surface of the structure (interior walls, floors, ceilings and exterior siding) will be required to be certified and fully compliant with these new rules and EPA prescribed methods for containment and cleanup.  There are also strict record-keeping requirements, penalties and work-stoppage orders from inspectors that can impact the project.

For more information, please visit the EPA website:
