Lead Paint Removal & Abatement Techniques

Wet Scraping & Liquid Encapsulation

Technique where all peeling leaded paint is removed. 

Then the surface is wet & covered with an City & State approved encapsulate that bonds materials to the existing painted surface.


One way of reducing exposure to lead paint is to cover the surface with a new surface & doesn’t require the removal of the lead paint.

Removal or Replacement

Sometimes it is just easier to replace windows &/or sills, doors, or woodwork than it is to remove lead-based paint.

This avoids the creation of the dust & chips that become an airborne hazard. 

Chemical Stripping

New York State Lead utilizes environmentally safe and EPA approved products to remove lead based paint from your walls.
