Lead Paint in Homes Built Before 1978

In January 2011 the US Environmental Protection Agency required that professional painters who work on homes built before 1978 be trained and certified for Lead–Safe painting procedures. The concern was health issues resulting from the past use of lead paint and stains.

Historically, lead was added to paint to enhance drying, increase longevity and durability, resist the damaging effects of moisture, and keep a paint job looking good over time. Unfortunately, lead paint has proved to be highly toxic and responsible for numerous physiological and neurological disorders.

The painting professionals at Kevin Palmer Painting have been trained and EPA approved to work on houses with lead based paints. Our painters can help keep your family healthy and your home looking beautiful.
