Lead Paint Certified Contractor

Can anyone recommend a good contractor who is also EPA lead certified? We need to replace some woodwork in our apartment and since we have a very curious one year old, we need someone reliable.

Thanks for any help.

  1. Hi! Here’s a link to find a local certified EPA contractor in your state: http://cfpub.epa.gov/flpp/searchrrp_firm.htm
    Ten States are authorized by EPA to administer their own RRP programs: Wisconsin, Iowa, North Carolina, Mississippi, Kansas, Rhode Island, Utah, Oregon, Massachusetts, Alabama, and Washington. For assistance identifying certified firms in these states contact the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (5323). If you would like to learn more about the EPA’s RRP law we have useful resources at http://www.zipwall.com/epa.php

  2. Hi, remember sometimes it can be safer to encapsulate the lead paint using products such as Fiberlock rather than removing it.

  3. FYI, lead paint certified doesn’t mean that much. I believe they attend one expensive seminar and they are automatically certified. The real question is how much do they follow best practices.
