EPA Lead Certified: Why You Shouldn’t Settle For Less

What separates great home improvement contractors from the rest? Simple: A genuine concern for the customer’s welfare. Perdue Builders and Supply is certified by the Environmental Protection Agency. Here’s a look at what this means and how it can benefit homeowners like you. 

The Dangers of Lead

Experienced contractors dissuade homeowners from lead-based products and for good reason. Since it is highly flammable, its presence in your home gives you a safety hazard to worry about in the event of a fire breakout. In addition, constant exposure to lead causes a  wide variety of ailments. It doesn’t matter if it is breathed in, swallowed, or simply absorbs lead particles; the health effects are the same.

Whether it’s siding replacement or roofing installation, you run the risk of contracting these afflictions if you don’t work with an EPA lead-certified contractor.

A Change in The Right Direction

Because lead exposure poses a significant health risk, the EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) has thus required companies to be certified. Otherwise, they won’t be able to perform services like renovation, repair, and painting of facilities built before 1978. In addition, they are only to use certified renovators with ample EPA-approved training to follow lead-safe work practices.

As an EPA-certified company, we provide our customers with safe solutions to their construction problems. We have undergone extensive training in handling lead-based construction products so you can rest assured we have the necessary skills and know-how to accomplish the task in the safest manner possible.
