Thomas Construction Installers Certified to Use Safe Lead Paint Work Practices

St. Louis-based Thomas Construction's window, kitchen and bath installers are EPA lead paint "Certified Renovators."

Bridgeton, MO, April 28, 2010 --( Thomas Construction’s installers are lead paint “Certified Renovators.” The company’s employees have completed the Environment Protection Agency’s training course.

Beginning April 22, 2010, federal law requires contractors that are hired to perform renovations, repairs and painting projects in homes built before 1978 that disturb lead-based paint to be certified and follow specific guidelines to prevent lead contamination.

Thomas Construction’s window, kitchen and bath installers are trained to take the precautions outlined by the EPA. “It’s added a whole new layer of complexity to a normally simple installation job. I think we’ll see only the better companies are able to comply with the new regulations,” said company President Stephen C. Townzen. A general outline of the practices includes containing the area where the lead paint work is being done, minimizing the dust from the project, and cleaning up thoroughly afterward.
