Lead Renovation

What's the Deal with
Lead-Based Paint?

Lead from paint, including lead-contaminated dust, is one of the most common causes of lead poisoning. Lead exposure can affect practically every system in the human body and can include abdominal and joint pain, gastrointestinal upset, and learning and developmental disabilities.

When to Get a Lead Inspection

Because lead exposure causes such serious health consequences, we recommend that anyone who lives in a home built before 1978 (the year lead-based paint was banned) have their home tested for lead to identify any potential health hazards. Our certified building inspectors can evaluate your home, take the necessary samples, and send them to an accredited and independent laboratory for testing. And if we find that there is a lead problem, we can help you create a plan to mitigate the risk.

Addressing Lead in the Building

Lead Stabilization

Lead paint stabilization is meant to temporarily reduce exposure when the lead paint-containing surfaces are intact, and the building is structurally sound. Many people choose stabilization when complete abatement is not financially possible.

Common methods of stabilization include:

  • Repairing physical defects that cause paint deterioration

  • Removing loose paint and other material from surfaces containing lead paint

  • Applying new paint or protective coatings

Lead Abatement

A more complete and permanent solution to lead-based paint in the building is to remove it completely. This involves significantly more work and is, therefore, more expensive. 

Much like removing asbestos or mold, lead removal is an involved process:

  • Complete containment of the affected area

  • Careful removal and disposal of the lead-containing materials

  • Complete site cleanup and testing
