U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules which took effect April 22 require remodeling work on homes built before 1978 to be undertaken only by contractors certified by the agency in lead-safe practices. (An EPA-certified contractor isn’t necessary if the work doesn’t disturb the paint, but that can be hard to know up front.)

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry recommends that home owners assume lead is present if their home was built before 1978 unless they’ve had it tested and found it lead free. Certified remodelers are required to display their EPA-certified training certificate to home owners.
