Certified Lead Free Contractor

When planning a home renovation in one of Madison's beautiful older neighborhoods, special consideration should be given to safely handling lead paint.  Any remodeling project on a home built before 1978 is at risk for having lead paint on the walls.  According to the Wisconsin Department of health, lead exposure in young children can cause a range of health and behavioral effects. To help eliminate this risk Wisconsin has created a program to certify home builders and renovation companies.  

As you choose a home remodeler or builder in Madison, ask if they are a Certified Lead Free Contractor.  With this certification you can feel confident that when construction begins  on your kitchen, bathroom, or other living space they will use safe methods to handle any lead paint.  It may take a little extra research, but having the right contractor will make your home renovation not only beautiful but safe!

More Bungalow Bathrooms

Bathroom Remodeling Project

Detail of Bathroom Remodel

At Artisan Remodeling we really appreciate the finished product, like the bathroom remodeling project pictured. I like to think that the extra little things that we put into our projects may not all be easily noticed, but the their sum makes the project really stand out in the end. The details of our remodeling work make us stand out from our competition and we are not afraid to get up close. Our staff and all of our skilled, licensed subcontractors do whatever it takes to make each project a success.

That brings me to introduce Artisan Remodeling's lead carpenter, Josh. When he is not lounging on the job he is coming up with great solutions to complex problems and he genuinely cares about each job. It is important to have quality people on the job, and not just as skilled labor. Potential home remodeling clients have to remember that on many projects they will see these guys a lot, so it is important that they are professional, up beat, and all around good people.

Thanks of visiting! Mike
