EPA Requirements for Denver Replacement Windows
We Do Things The RIGHT Way For Your Health & Safety
Zen Windows Denver Is EPA Lead-Safe Certified
Homes built prior to 1978 are at risk for having lead-based paint, a significant health hazard. When you disturb old paint by replacing windows, that can put children and pregnant mothers at risk if proper precautions are not taken.
Any contractor replacing windows on homes prior to 1978 needs to be EPA Lead-Safe Certified. This is both a legal requirement and the right thing to do.
Zen Windows Denver is fully certified for this work and takes the appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of you and your family.
We sometimes get questions about the EPA requirements. Here are the three questions we hear the most:
Does following EPA Lead-Safe procedures add to my costs?
Because of the increased time necessary for installation, it does add some cost to the project, but it won’t be outrageous.
If I’m confident that my home doesn’t contain lead-paint, can I waive the necessity of using Lead-Safe Certified techniques?
No, unless you have an official inspection from a state-approved vendor that your home is certified lead-free, we absolutely must follow the EPA Lead-Safe procedures.
How can I know if a window company is certified by the EPA?
Ask them for proof. We will be happy to show you our certification!
