Lead: Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule

Sophiep 20To 20AvatarSophiep's Take on Things....
 
Up until November 15th, EPA Certifies 511,000 Lead-Safe renovators and 64,000 remodeling firms according to The Official Online Newspaper of NAHB. In a previous blog, I wrote about EPA's regulation on the Lead: Renovation, Repair, and Painting rule that went into affect earlier this year. Recently, a meeting was held with NAHB and a not so surprising fact was shared; homeowners are still using noncertified contractors or remodelers for their needs.
 
For the past month and will still continue, NAHB launched a campaign to drive home the importance of lead testing. Through print, radio and now magazine ads, NAHB hope to reach more people and expose the safe way to go is to go with a firm that is certified safe. For firms to be cerfitied, the employees have to go through EPA-approved training. There are also test kits, such as D-Lead and LeadCheck.

The EPA is in the midst of a two-month magazine ad campaign promoting the need to use certified lead-safe remodelers in homes built before 1978.

FAS Windows & Doors has been certified a lead-safe firm. Our team has gone through the training to check for homes built before 1978. We will stay on top of permits and regulations to make sure our customers are fully protected. Please think twice when you are deciding to make any renovations to your home if it is built before 1978. Be safe and be aware.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
