In NY, lead-based paint regulations forced property
owners to change the way they deal with painted surfaces
in their properties. "Local Law 1 of 2004" broadens
owner responsibilities in dealing with renovation
projects, refinancing and day-to-day operations.
Local Law 1 requires that all painted surfaces within
building built prior to 1960 be presumed to contain lead
paint. Testing the paint for lead can only rebut the
addition when painted surfaces are disturbed, special
precautions must be taken and wipe samples of surfaces
collected in insure compliance with the laws standards
EHI can assist property owners by obtaining exceptions
by certifying their property lead free after conducting
XRF Spectrophotometric testing. Should lead exist
within the property; EHI can develop a workable
Operations & Maintenance Plan for your building.
