Even if you live in Yorktown or Virginia Beach doesn’t mean you are necessarily safe either if you are considering doing some remodeling, on the interior or exterior. Hiring the right contractor to handle this situation if you do in fact have lead based paint on or in your home is essential. Hiring the WRONG contractor could be a nightmare, it could even hurt you or your children or result in your home being condemned. Please get to know your facts!
