Residential Insulation is a Lead Certified Firm. What does that mean? It means we can legally work in homes built before 1978 that may or may not contain lead paint. Make sure your contractor is certified to work in your home if you have a home older than 1978. This law went into affect on April 22, 2010.
All remodelers and renovators are required to be certified if they are disturbing any lead based surface in your home. This includes anyone, from painters to carpet layers, to plumbers, to electricians and yes, insulation specialists. Lead can be a very dangerous health risk. Especially to children under 6 and pregnant women.
