Fire at Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ!

We've been busy the last several weeks at Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ in downtown Frederick. The church suffered a small fire, that caused significant smoke damage, and we were selected to repaint the sanctuary ceiling and walls after the cleaning was completed. 

You can read more about the restoration process on Paul Davis’s blog at https://goo.gl/ocLTg3.

There is also a really cool 360 degree view of the scaffolding that was set up to access the ceiling for the restoration work here https://goo.gl/VMWQa7,  and we've got a few more pictures posted on Facebook www.facebook.com/FrederickPainting.

 WPartitions beforee recently refinished a set of toilet partitions in a public restroom.  We removed the partitions on a Friday, refinished them in our shop, and re-installed them on a Monday morning.   By removing them to our shop we avoided unpleasant dust and paint fumes at the owners site, and were able to apply an epoxy primer, and catalyzed urethane finish to make them look new again.  Check out the before and after pictures below.

"EPA RRP: What does it mean to you?"

Lead Check RRP
In April 2010 an EPA regulation known as the Renovate, Repair, and Painting rule went into effect. This ruling requires that owners and occupants of residential dwellings and child occupied facilities built before 1978 be notified of the hazards of lead based paint, and that proper work practices be followed while work is being performed. It also requires that contractors be trained and certified to do this work safely, and that records be kept to ensure compliance.

So What does this mean to you?

It means that the EPA has established a system to protect you from the dangers associated with lead based paint exposure.  It means you have a choice to make.  Should you hire a contractor who could potentially expose you or your family to lead?  Or should you hire a contractor who has taken the time to learn how to protect you and your loved ones?  

At Frederick Painting & Supply, we take this matter seriously.  Much of the work we do is in older homes, so we train all of our employees how to perform their work in a lead safe manner.  If your home was built before 1978, one of our certified renovators will supervise your project to ensure your safety.

If you have any questions about lead safety or how the RRP rule effects you, please contact us.  While we hope that you will give us the oppurtunity to work with you on your project, we stongly encourage you to make sure you are using an EPA certified firm/renovator on any project for your older home.
