LEAD ABATEMENT

Lead is a heavy metal element that has been used over the years in multiple aspects of building construction.  Lead can cause a variety of heath concerns if ingested, including attacking the brain and nervous system and several blood disorders.  Lead-based paint (LBP), one of the more common forms of lead, is found on all types of interior and exterior building surfaces. With age, this paint begins to weaken and flake making it a distinct threat, and one that needs to be handled with professionalism and care.  GEC has accrued countless examples of projects where LBP has been identified, removed, and disposed of efficiently.
