"Don't wait any longer," said Paul Toub of Kachina Lead Paint Solutions, speaking to participants in the Window & Door Dealers Alliance Webinar focusing on new Environmental Protection Agency rules addressing remodeling work in pre-1978 homes. With the April 22 effective date fast approaching, he urged listeners tuning in foryesterday's session to get their companies registered and get their workers trained and certified as soon as possible.

He went on to detail what he described as "lead safe business practices" under the new EPA rules. Beginning with the initial check of whether a home was built prior to 1978, then the test procedures for lead, and the potential for the homeowner to "opt out" on the use of lead-safe work practices, Toub reviewed numerous forms and checklists his company recommends remodeling firms, including window and door replacement dealers, use to address the new requirements from before the sale all the way through the completion of the project, according to a Feb. 9 Window & Door report.
