What is the difference?
Deleading and renovation work are very different from each other. The major difference between the two is in the intent of the work. Deleading work is performed in order to remove lead hazards in a home which will gain a Letter of Full Deleading Compliance. This letter protects the owners from strict liability under the Massachusetts Lead Law as well as makes the home safer for children and adults. Deleading jobs are also eligible for up to $1500.00 in tax credit per unit deleaded.
Renovation work is done for the purpose of improving the quality of the home or repairing problems. With new lead paint laws affecting renovation work, some of the jobs may seem to provide the same function as deleading, however it lies in the intent of the work.
