Reviews of Lead Abatement Projects Near You
Diversified Environmental Inc
It took some time to nail down an appointment. The technician was late by 30 minutes or so. But when he arrived he performed the work methodically. He told me the job is going to take two hours but in the end it took about three hours. he worked slowly but carefully, taking notes drawing diagrams along the way. He told me he would try to get the report back to me the next day. But it took him three business days to get it to me. But he delivered it to my office personally. The report is pretty formal with detailed technical data and scope of abatement suggested. So overall I don't have any complaints.

We hired ACIS to some mold and asbestos testing at my parents home. They were very knowledgeable and responsive. Besides doing the testing they also did the abatement. They were very neat and tidy. They left the house very clean and the report they submitted to us had great information of the findings and the results. I will use them again for the other homes we own.

They told me initially that there was lead based paint in the house. When they sent the written report it didn't match what they originally had stated. This report said there wasn't lead paint on the walls. We removed walls removed and hired other specialists to fix this issue. The discrepancy costed us quite of bit of money, and the owner blamed us which was frustrating.

We have been working with Pete to measure the lead levels in our house. The abatement process has been very complicated which is why we have asked him to come several times to inspect after our other contractors cleaned. He is easily available by phone, nice, and prompt. Both he and Sheila, in his office, are lovely. I like them both and would recommend them as honest people to work with.

Jenkins Environmental Inc
JEI was recommended to us by a lead testing firm, Capital Beltway Environmental, that performed lead soil samples and wipe samples on our porches after a painting contractor failed to take promised precautions to limit the spread of lead paint chips and dust when prepping exterior surfaces of our home for painting. The painters proceeded to clean the site using leaf blowers, dispersing lead-contaminated dust around our yard. We hired JEI do a risk assessment after Capital Beltway recommended we use an abatement contractor to clean the most heavily contaminated areas in our yard, and the abatement contractors we spoke to indicated they would only submit estimates if they had a scope of work prepared by a licensed risk assessor. JEI was quite responsive when called, and performed the testing on fairly short notice. CEO Larry Jenkins was very knowledgeable and offered lots of advice on how to clean up areas of the yard that we were able to do ourselves. We did not do any shopping around in this instance since we were trying to get the yard cleaned up as quickly as possible, but JEI's fees seemed reasonable given the technical nature of the work and the quick response time.

I called David to ask about lead paint & abatement services. I explained the situation of our home, and while David recommended we go another route, he still took time out of his day to really understand my concerns and our situation, and made some very helpful recommendations for easy ways to keep our house clean & safe for our kids. I recommend David to anyone who's looking for lead testing services. David is the first person you should call.

John Krause Construction
7/29/2015 I needed a company certified to do removal of the front door of my house due to lead contamination. I contacted John Krause Construction company and they were very fast to respond to my request. John came out the very next day and came up with an estimate that day. Jen Contacted me about a day and time that would be convenient for me for the door to be installed. Paul and his crew came exactly when Jen said they would and the door, trim ect. were installed and it was like magic-old door was gone and new door in place. They cleaned up meticulously and it looked like they had never even been there. I would highly recommend John Krause for any type of service they perform-a VERY professional company!

The whole project was much more extensive than I thought it would be. House is rental property and had not had a lot of maintenance work in recent years. There was a lot to do to bring it up to speed for Lead Paint Abatement inspection. Also- previous tenant had been very negligent in caring for cats, which had been left in the basement, resulting in a stubborn odor problem there. Addressing that issue was a lot more complicated that we had initially thought, because we had not realized the extent of the damage. Repairs to kitchen faucet and garbage disposal were done in less than a day. Contractor/owner of Sydney Contracting is Carl Weisheit. I found him extremely reliable and courteous and very willing to explain all procedures and details of the contract to me. He was very considerate of the current tenants and went out of his way not to convenience them but was very mindful of not exposing them to any lead paint dust during the process. Mr. Weisheit did everything he said he would do. The Lead Paint Inspector described his work as "very careful and meticulous."

Capital Beltway Environmental LLC
Capital Beltway Environmental was extremely helpful and responsive when we called on short notice to have lead testing performed on our front & back porches and in our yard. Their industrial hygenist was very helpful and provided useful advice on how to correct the contamination we found. They also recommended a risk assessor to perform a more detailed, whole-house assessment testing for the presence of lead paint, which the abatement contractors we spoke to indicated was a prerequisite to working up an estimate for the clean-up work. Beyond their testing services, CBE provided us with a great deal of good advice and support during a very stressful period in which we did not have a firm idea how expensive or extensive the clean-up efforts would ultimately be. We would recommend them to anyone who believes they are facing a lead contamination problem in or around their home.

CertaPro Painters® Frederick LLC
The owner Trevor visited with my wife to understand the scope of the job, and was very friendly. He got a quote back to us quickly as well. The team showed up on time, lead by their foreman Keith, who was great. Very friendly and conscientious, and knew what he was talking about. The first thing they did was cover the inside windows with plastic. They quickly moved to covering the ground outside with heavy plastic, and built a barrier to keep lead chips from falling into our neighbor's yard. They wore their containment suits before scraping, and cleaned up properly at the end of the day. I actually came home to a clean, non-contaminated backyard--which was amazing to me. They performed masonry repairs next, and when the damp weather did not allow for fast enough drying time, they just moved onto a different part of the job (front of the house), so that the repairs could properly dry. They got right to it, and kept us aware of anything odd that popped up. We did have some rotting wood that needed to be repaired on the front of our house, which we and they both knew was a possible issue going into the job based on Trevor's initial evaluation. They offered us a fair price on that repair. The guys showed up punctual every day, let us know if there were any weather issues they were contending with and what the plan of attack was, and cleaned up--spotless--at the end of each day. I can;t tell you how rare that is for contractors of any sort in my experience! Overall, we were very pleased. Communication was great, which is such a big thing in my book, but most importantly, at the end of the day, I knew the lead paint on the outside of our home had been handled properly and safely. CertaPro was the third contractor I've worked with on lead issues so far, and they are the only ones who handled it correctly (I am pretty knowledgeable on the subject at this point). What a relief to deal with a company that knows what they're doing. Hire these guys if you need the job done right?especially if you you are dealing with lead issues.

My lead inspector recommended CGM. They were worlds cheaper than the other lead remediation specialists I found. I realize that the EPA requires all contractors to follow lead-safe practices, but I wanted someone who would do it right. Charlie and one helper arrived on time and did the work quickly using all of the lead-safe practices that my research tells me the EPA requires. I breathed easier when they completed that, so I could let my other trades move forward without fearing they would disturb any lead. For what it's worth, I have their phone number as (717) 499-4204. If that weren't the last lead to remediate in my house, I would have hired them again. I've recommended them to friends.

I called David to set up an appointment for an inspection of our condo and he could not have been more helpful! We have a somewhat unique situation so he suggested we go another route, but he still spent 20 minute on the phone with me listening to my concerns, answering questions, calming me down and giving me advice (even though he knew we were not going to use his service.) He was honest, knowledgable, friendly and gave me a bunch of ideas of how to easily and more affordably deal with our situation. I appreciate so much that he took the time to talk to me and recommend anyone in the market for lead testing and removal start by giving him a call.

I called George based on the great reviews on Angie's list since I was desperate for a lead test. I'm in the process of buying a home that was built in 1947 and it has original doors & windows. I'm a mother of a two year old & I'm concerned that there is a strong likelihood of lead with this house. After speaking with George for over over 20 minutes. He explained everything about how lead testing is done & the different types of methods in detecting it. He also talked about what to do if it's found and possible costs related with each method. He was extremely knowledgeable & patient with me. After explaining all of this information to me I then advised that I only needed him for the lead test and that I had already hired another inspector. He then advised that he would provide me with the lead test swabs that he already purchased for free. He even offered to leave them in his mailbox if I agreed to come get them. I was away visiting family in Massachusetts and asked my husband to go pick them up after work. My husband went by that evening and didn't find any swabs in his box. He then called me asking what he should do since it was 10:00 pm and I told him to just go home. I planned on calling George in the a.m. once I was up. To my surprise there was a voicemail waiting for me once I had woken up. It was George apologizing. He advised that he had asked his wife to leave them in the box and she had forgotten to do so. He then informed that he would leave them in the box for my husband to come back & get. I called my husband & told him to go get the swabs right away. He drove all the way out to Vienna & there were the swabs. George had no reason not once but twice to help me but he did! He saved me over $450 in lead testing. He also armed me with all the information I needed in order to conduct the test, understand the different methods of testing, and he advised me of the possible outcomes to expect from the seller when it comes to the removal of lead if it was found. I'm extremely floored by his generosity & definitely believe him to be an upstanding contractor who knows his stuff. I'm looking forward to working with George in the future should the opportunity present itself. To anyone wondering whether they should hire him/not. My recommendation would be yes. Thank you again George for your time & generosity.
