Lead is a hazardous material this is often found in paint used in older homes that can cause severe health problems, developmental issues for young children, and birth defects. Some homes built before 1978 may still have lead paint. Under Federal Law, sellers and owners of rental properties must disclose any known lead hazards.
Old Village is certified for both Lead Paint Removal and Lead Paint Abatement.
Stripped, repaired and repainted ~12 window sashes for original double-hung windows on 110 year old house, stripped repainted and weather stripped 2 doors, and repainted walls and ceilings of three rooms... we were adamant about keeping the original windows and that the work be performed in a lead-safe manner. Ed and OVMP were highly responsive and got to work immediately, they stripped the sashes back to bare wood, repaired sash pulleys and cords, and helped my wife select a color scheme for the parlor and playroom. I was working in the house and saw personally that the painters really followed EPA Lead-Safe work practices. ...Overall, the paint job is excellent and the work was done as quickly as possible. We are supremely satisfied!
