Dangerous Lead Paint

How to take care of the dangerous lead paint on your home

Moss Roofing Is Trained In The Proper Removal Of Hazardous Paint

No matter if you’re repainting your home or having new siding installed on it, if your home was built before 1978, then it’s highly likely that your home contains lead-based paint. In 1978, the government banned the use of lead paint on homes since lead-contaminated dust is one of the leading causes of lead poisoning. But despite the fact that it was banned, lead paint is still present on homes that haven’t been updated since that time. If this is the case for your project, steps must be taken to address it before doing any sort of work on your home.

Moss Roofing, a team of local siding experts, has been trained in the removal of lead paint, ensuring that we protect your health throughout your home remodel project.

Lead Paint Statistics

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), lead paint is present in millions of homes. Most people don’t realize that since it’s often buried under layers of newer paint. If your exterior or interior paint job is holding up, then lead paint isn’t an issue.

However, when lead paint starts chipping, chalking, peeling, or when it gets damp, it can become a real issue for occupants exposed to it. Families with young children are particularly at risk since little ones often put contaminated items in their mouths. Lead paint is often found on and around commonly used areas, including windows, doors, door frames, stairs, railings, and porches.

If you suspect that your exterior is covered with lead paint, Moss Roofing can remove this hazard and replace it with a quality siding product from James Hardie®.
