Pine Street Carpenters Now an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm
May, 2010

Keeping abreast of industry standards and best practices, Pine Street Carpenters has been certified by the EPA in accordance with the agency's latest regulations on lead paint. On April 22, the EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe renovation practices and other actions aimed at protecting the health of children and adults alike.

Under the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule, all contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 must be registered with the EPA and undergo Certified Renovator training.

This month, the EPA certified Pine Street Carpenters as a Lead-Safe Certified Firm. In addition to this company certification, in April nearly a dozen of our project managers and carpenters completed the required training and testing to become Certified Renovators.
