Many homeowners planning a remodel are unaware that there is a law in place, the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule, which requires firms and their employees to be trained and certified to follow lead-safe work practices during renovations in homes built before 1978. It is estimated that lead-based paint was used on 38 million homes before it was banned for residential use in 1978. Dust from this paint is one of the leading causes of lead poisoning in children under the age of six. Schloegel Design Remodel is a certified firm in Kansas and Missouri, and currently has eleven Certified Renovators on staff. We are proud of our commitment to lead-safe work practices and an overall safe job site.
