The Lead Paint Inspection & Removal Process
If you suspect your home may have lead paint we will provide a thorough evaluation of all painted areas in your home, including the body, trim, accents, soffit, and eves. We will examine the exterior and interior of your home and will test all accumulated layers of paint for the presence of lead. Conducting a comprehensive examination of all painted surfaces in your home is the only way to determine if your home has lead paint.
If your home is found to have lead paint, we provide you with an estimate of the time and cost required to provide removal of your lead paint and repainting of your home. Depending on the size of the job, we realize the cost can be significant, so we consult with you on the lead paint removal strategy option that works best for you.
Unforeseen Restoration Issues during Lead Paint Removal
Because the lead paint removal process is so intensive, it sometimes uncovers issues in the structure of your home, such as dry rot and areas of deteriorating siding where moisture has penetrated your home. If these issues need attention we can help with this too. Our parent company, SFW Construction, is a full-service general contractor that specializes in structural home restoration and siding repair. We never hope for additional work on a job, but it’s great to be prepared if it is.
Lead Paint Removal is a Health Maintenance Strategy
Lead paint was banned by the EPA in 1978 due to its propensity to cause profound adverse health effects, including abdominal and joint pain, constipation, nausea, vomiting, learning disabilities, fatigue, loss of appetite, hyperactivity, irritability, headache, and memory loss. Prolonged exposure to lead paint can even result in unconsciousness and death. We advise you to be proactive and avoid any of these unwanted conditions by having your home inspected for lead paint today.
