Lead Paint Stabilization

Any home constructed before 1978 may have lead paint. In 1991 the EPA stated that lead-based paint is considered the “number one environmental threat to children’s health in the United States.” And, according to the EPA, lead paint removal should only be performed by a Certified Portland House Painter. SFW Painting is a fully accredited and licensed Lead-Safe Restoration and Lead Abatement Contractor. We are known in the Pacific Northwest as the foremost experts in lead paint removal, lead paint encapsulation, and lead abatement.

Kind Words From Our Homeowners

“SFW replaced all the rotted boards, safely removed the lead paint, and painted the house. The project turned out amazing! Two companies turned down the job due to lead paint; I’m glad they did; I couldn’t be happier! If you need a lead paint contractor, call these guys. I will be referring SFW to family and friends with trust!”

Larry Y • Lead Paint Removal and Restoration, Seattle, Washington

“SFW Painting did not try to oversell or scam. They took care of the job from start to finish and left the work areas clean. I have an old house, so they made sure to create containment areas to minimize lead paint dust. It might have cost a bit more than Joe Handyman, but they’ll do everything the right way.”

Mattison C • Lead Paint Removal and Restoration, Portland, Oregon

“We originally called SFW to fix some minor siding and wood rot. I was so impressed with their professionalism over the phone and in person, we chose them to paint the entire house. Their exterior house painters are friendly and polite. We are pleased with the results and highly recommend SFW Painting.”

Jim E • Exterior House Painting, Beaverton, Oregon

“Great experience, from initial contact to final invoice payment. They were careful, considerate, thorough, and professional. Our estimate and work in progress accounting were fair, transparent, and responsive. I highly recommend SFW Painting for any interior painting job you may have.”

Linda F • Interior House Painting, Portland, Oregon

“We had dry rot to repair before repainting and were on a tight timeline. SFW met our deadline. On the job site, the exterior house painters were great, and their communication is a model of clarity and efficiency. SFW may not be the low bid, but the quality from top to bottom is worth every penny. I highly recommend!”

Esther L • Exterior House Painting, Portland, Oregon

“SFW Painting is reliable and honest. We have used them for several projects at two different houses to fix water damage and many interior painting projects. They are very clear about what you should expect to pay, and they also accept credit cards. I will never use another painting or construction company again.”

Mallory B • Interior House Painting, Portland, Oregon

SFW answered all my questions concerning the need for an emergency lead paint remediation. Within 1 day they sent a crew who vacuumed, scraped and sealed the house. They kept me updated during the 2 day job including when they vacuumed my neighbors yard to prevent exposure to their baby.

Panky S • Lead Paint Removal, Seattle, Washington

This team is excellent! From the communications from the staff to the hard working professionals on the crew i have to say “Bravo!” Very fast response rate to get my bid done and then they were out here working on my house before I knew it! Would highly recommend!

How To Safely Remove Lead Paint



Banned from residential paints in 1978, lead paint is in the majority of homes built before that year. Lead poisoning is caused by paint that is flaking, peeling, chipping, and chalking, or by dust during a repair project. However, by following the EPA guidelines, we can safely contain the dust and keep your home lead-safe and worry-free.

Can You Paint Over Lead Paint?



Have you checked your home for lead paint? Do you see visible signs of cracking and peeling paint but can not confirm it’s lead? Buying or living in a home built in or before 1978, prior to the ban on the use of lead paint, can leave you wondering whether or not the house has lead paint.

Should You Paint Or Stain The Cabinets In Your Home?



We all do it. Stare at our cabinets for minutes, wondering what we will do to get all the memories off of the wood. Whether you are grabbing a mug for some coffee, a plate for dinner, or storing something in your kitchen, it's usually evident if your cabinets need new paint or stain.
