Certified Lead-Safe

Grennan Construction is a Lead-Safe Certified Firm

Beginning in April of 2010, federal law requires all contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb more than six square feet of paint in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 must be certified and trained to follow special practices to prevent lead contamination. Renovation is broadly defined as any activity that disturbs painted surfaces and includes most repair, remodeling and maintenance activities, including window replacement and siding replacement.

Let the experts at Grennan Construction ensure your next renovation project leaves your home and family safe both during and after the project. Our certified team is trained in identifying, managing and handling all hazards associated with lead-based paint. These requirements pertain to warning signs and work area containment, the restriction or prohibition of certain practices, waste handling, cleaning and post-renovation cleaning verification.

Grennan Construction is proud to be a participating EPA Lead-Safe Certified firm, furthering our commitment to our client’s safety and total project satisfaction.
