The National Association of the Remodeling Industry is hoping to help raise awareness of the dangers of lead exposure by observing National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week  October 24-30. In light of the Environmental Protection Agency's Lead Renovation, Repair, Painting Rule, NARI sees this week as a good time to encourage consumers to hire lead certified remodelers when remodeling a home built prior to 1978.

My guess is that many homeowners are still unaware of the new lead paint rules and that such efforts are needed. I thought I'd check, however, with this week's poll.

And, of course, I'd like to hear from you too. Now that the EPA rules are in effect, what kind of reactions have you had from homeowners when you've explained lead safe work practices to them?  What impact have the regulations had on your business?  Post your comment on WindowandDoor.com or email me and share your thoughts.
