Lead Paint and Your Home

 Lead Paint and Your Home

Vintage homes are beautiful, and full of character- but unfortunately they can also contain lead. If your house was built before 1978 that’s something you need to consider before having your home painted or other contracted work done.

The first step to painting your home if you suspect it might have been painted with lead paint is having it tested. You can call a certified lead tester to do the work. Find a list of inspectors at: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CCDPHP/DEODC/CLPPB/Pages/home_test.aspx

My home tested positive for lead... Now what?

It’s time find a paint contractor who is lead certified by the state of California, and can legally take your job. This means the estimators, and the crew leader have gone through EPA RRP Rules training. (Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rules) They’ll follow special lead containment and preparation procedures and then dispose of any lead paint they chip away from your home.

My home has been repainted… do I have to do this every time I repaint?

You shouldn’t need to! If you follow a maintenance schedule of repainting at least every 10-12 years and keep peeling to below 20 square feet of peeling, you should not need to repeat RRP procedures.

Sounds great, who can do the job?

We can! Call Brooks Painting at 530-753-5074 to learn more about this and other services. If you are out of our service area, we suggest you check the epa.gov website and do a RRP Certified vendor search.

We would recommend them highly. [They] painted and did a good job. Kept everything clean and cleaned up after, very polite.

Chris and Gabriel were amazing. Corey was patient and helpful in answering questions and while I decided on colors. The office was easy to contact and had good follow-through. Thank you so much to Brooks for a job I could not possibly be happier with. Feel free to use me as a reference!

Bud was always available and extremely knowledgeable. He was always willing to go that extra step and also explain things thoroughly.

Hiring Brooks Painting was an easy and professional process the whole way through, from the estimate to the completion of having my very high walls edged, where I was unable to reach them. Crew Leader Eric was prompt and super capable, which was a relief since he had to maneuver and climb a very tall ladder. He was also in the process of teaching a newer painter and I admired his positive and encouraging manner. In addition, he was willing to respond to my requests with ease. No regrets here! The edging looks amazing and only took 4 hours to complete.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

Consummate professionals! We hired Brooks to repaint the exterior of our house, and they did a fantastic job. The paint looks wonderful, everyone was also on time, friendly, and respectful of our property. Exceptional communication through the entire process. I was worried about damage to the landscaping near the house (bad previous experience with another outfit), but they were all very understanding and the crew was super careful. Did what they said they would do with no weirdness, no smoking, no radio, and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. This picky customer is very happy!

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

My house is so beautiful now…great work. Courteous, prompt, awesome work.

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.
