Recently, Classic Remodeling & Construction, Inc. became a U.S. EPA Lead-Safe certified firm under the EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule. Classic remains invested in continued education for its employees to stay informed and familiar with the latest industry trends and technologies and to comply with industry requirements and guidelines.
Remodeling and renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint.
