Report Shows EPA Underestimated Costs of Lead Paint Removal

This summer (2012) a 29-page cost/benifit analysis published by the EPA reviewing RRP Lead: “Renovation, Repair, and Paint” restrictions. These regulations have made the abatement of lead paint much safer, but also much more expensive. Lead paint job costs have gone way up, and the penalties have as well. Massachusetts alone in 2011 had 19 filed violations for lead paint removal. Just because they published a report doesn’t mean much has changed. If you don’t think theres a chance to get caught removing lead paint without a “Lead-Safe” contractor, think again. They even gave a fine to somebody on Nantucket!

So what does the regulation say? Something that was brung up in the report that every lead paint renovator is supposed to have was an “RRP Supply Bin”. In the report it said that almost nobody was carrying them, them. To the right is A&A Services’ supply bin we use for our lead paint jobs, we used it in our blog about how to comply with RRP regulations (we do lots of lead paint advocacy). How many laws are there? Tons. It literally takes all week to read through the regulations, but if your up for a challenge, you can findALL the regulations here. If you want some more practical advice on how to get rid of lead yourself or find a certified contractor, click the green button below. Quick summary of the report, quoted by the EPA:
