Why are contractors and painters charging more money for renovations in Iowa?

If you are thinking about remodeling, repainting or renovating your home that was built before 1978, it may have lead-based paint. If contractors or painters have to work with this type of paint, they may charge you more money because of all the requirements, set up time and all the work that is involved.

New EPA regulations called the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule went into effect in April 2010, and require contractors, workers, handymen, painters and other remodelers to get certified in working with lead-based paint.

Making sure the home is properly taped off and set up requires additional time, which could mean more money. It is important to hire a certified safe lead contractor to work on your home for the sake of your own health.
