Lead Paint Deadline Looms

2010 is shaping up to be a busy year for remodeling. Many homeowners who held off on projects for the last year or two are now ready to move forward with their plans. There’s extra incentive to do energy-efficient improvements this year because of a $1500 federal tax credit that will expire at the end of 2010.

All this remodeling activity may be complicated, however, by a new EPA regulation on handling lead paint in pre-1978 homes. The new rules go into effect next week on April 22nd, and require that remodelers who work on projects as small as bathroom remodels and minor siding and window replacement be certified to safely remove lead paint and be registered with the EPA.

Ventana Construction (www.ventanabuilds.com) is one of a very short list of Seattle companies currently registered with the EPA and trained to legally do remodeling and renovation on pre-1978 homes with lead paint. Homeowners planning remodels in 2010 should expect to receive an EPA lead paint pamphlet from the contractor and see an added level of protection when demolition is performed in or outside their home.

We are a family-owned business specializing in whole-house remodels and additions, with a focus on seamlessly blending the new areas with the existing home.

Ventana Construction also offers a monthly workshop in our West Seattle office about the remodeling process. The Building a Better Home Workshop is held in conjunction with Goforth-Gill Architects and covers a broad range of information for those considering a project for their home. We also talk in detail about the energy tax credits and the new lead paint rules. Our next workshop is April 14 at 6pm. Call to reserve a seat if you are interested.
