"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after

the sweetness of low price is forgotten"

Since 2005 our companies main focus has been older homes with lead base paint issues. 

In 2010 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) put into affect laws that would serve to protect all people working in a field that can potentially pose a lead hazard. These laws eliminate or greatly reduce the exposure not only to workers but homeowners and families, neighbors, and the surrounding environment. 


We have dedicated ourselves to understanding how lead base paint affects the overall painting process. How it changes and evolves over time and affects new paint. We have gained intimate knowledge of how to work with it and anticipate it’s ever changing demand for attention. We are licensed and trained in accordance to all EPA federal and state laws and rules on how to safely work with Lead Paint in a variety of abatement processes. All employees are trained daily and attend weekly safety meetings to insure everyone is following the laws and protecting themselves and our homeowners from the hazards of lead base paint. We are able to educate homeowners on the technical condition of their paint and give them all the options available so they can make an educated decision on what option works best for them.
