Renovating Older Homes

Renovating, Repairing, or Painting?

NAT194621WEBLOGOThe EPA issued a rule, effective April 22, 2010, requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning. Under the rule, beginning in April 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects (RRP) that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

"RRP Rule assumes that any house built before 1978 contains lead-based paint, unless the house has been tested for lead-based paint and the results indicate that the house and/or impacted component does not contain lead-based paint." (Certified Renovator Initial Course Manual)

Villa Builders complies with the requirements and is an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm.

If your home was built before 1978 and you have any questions about your project and the Renovating, Repairing, or Painting (RRP) rule, please give us a call at (410)349-3282 or send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Thank You Villa Builders!


This 1970's modular on Kent Island, MD was in desperate need of renovation and upgrading. Villa Builders exceeded our expectations. Now, we have a wonderful home to live in!
