Question (23002-18346)

If a project disturbs six square feet or less of interior surface or twenty square feet or less of exterior surface, is it necessary for a firm to comply with the pre-renovation education requirements, such as distributing the pamphlet?

Answer

No.  A project that disturbs six square feet or less of interior painted surface or twenty square feet or less of exterior painted surface is not considered a "renovation" under the Rule.  It is considered a minor maintenance and repair activity.  As long as this type of disturbance does not involve any prohibited work practice, window replacement or demolition of painted surfaces, a firm need not comply with the pre-renovation education requirements.
