Renovating a Pre-1978 Home

Homes built before 1978 may have lead-based paint. When the paint deteriorates, or is disturbed during painting or renovation projects, it can pose a serious lead hazard especially for young children. ​​​​​​​​​


If you’re thinking to renovating your own residence, there are steps in order for you to protect your family by preventing the spread of lead dust.   

  1. Follow good work practices ​
  2. Consider hiring a certified lead abatement contractor or inspector before you disturb paint ​
  3. Consider hiring a certified lead-safe RRP contractor to do the work ​   ​​​
