Answer

A job is considered minor repair and maintenance, rather than a renovation covered by the RRP Rule, if it disrupts 6 square feet or less of painted surface per room in a 30 day period.  Calculate the area of painted surface disrupted based on the surface area of the component that is disrupted.  For example, cutting a 1-inch strip off a door that is 36 inches wide would disrupt 36 square inches of painted surface, regardless of the width of the cut made by the saw blade.
