Lead Paint and Replacing Windows in Minnesota

New EPA lead paint safety rules and regulations
When replacing windows in a house built before 1978, any debris containing lead paint must be handled according to EPA regulations.  As of April 22, 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began enforcing lead paint safety regulations on Renovations, Repairs and Painting  jobs (RRP jobs) on pre 1978 houses.  Commonly referred to as RRP Rules and Regulations.  Your window replacement contractor must be RRP certified by the EPA and at least 1 person on the crew must be certified as well.  This applies to all repair and paint jobs where lead paint is disturbed.
