Storm Window Removal: The EPA RRP rules
enacted 4/22/10 require extensive ground
protection when working on the exterior of a
house build prior to 1978 that contains lead
paint. Therefore, it is more cost effective
for the painter to remove the storm windows
when the exterior paint preparation and
painting is done as he will have to provide
ground covering at that time. This avoids
double ground protection expense. However,
Window Master can remove storm windows at a
cost of $50 each which covers the cost of
ground protection, removal, transportation,
recycling and exterior clean up. Final
scraping, filling of any screw holes and any
other exterior cosmetic wood repair to be
done by painter. This storm window removal
does not include removing any metal wrapping
that may have been applied to sills or trim.
