New Lead Paint Rules for Renovation of Homes Built Pre-1978

Posted in Construction Defects & Defective Construction, Sick Buildings

On April 21, new lead paint rules applicable to housing and certain child care schools and facilities built prior to 1978 go into effect.  Lead exposure can cause brain damage; exposure prior to age six is especially dangerous.

Contractors and owners can find the EPA’s regulations on lead paint in Title 40, Part 745 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
