04-22-10  Lead Paint  On April 22, 2010, Earth Day, new Environmental Protection Agency and Utah requirements regarding lead paint are in effect that affect most home remodeling projects. Roughly 79 million American homes constructed before 1978 are subject to the Lead Renovation, Repair and Repainting Rule. In an effort to reduce lead paint exposure, the EPA has issued this safety rule for work that disturbs over three square feet, virtually any potentially contaminated lead painted surfaces.  Lead dust exposure is now recognized as a very hazardous health risk to children, and hazardous to pregnant women, workers and other adults, causing permanent damage. Any subject renovations must be performed by Lead Safety Certified Renovation Firms. David Taylor Remodeling is proud to announce completed EPA training as a Lead Safety Certified Renovator. For more information on the EPA rule, please visit http://www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/renovation.htm

    “With the resurgence of the housing market, consumers are spending more than $300 billion annually to upgrade their homes since nearly two-thirds of the nation’s homes are over 30 years old,” said Marvin Ellison, chairman and CEO of JCPenney, in a release.
