Illegal contractors are thanking the EPA all the way to the bank. The recent EPA RRP Lead Law has given illegal contractors a huge pricing advantage over legally operating contractors. Illegal contractors (see story below) are using this advantage and in some cases telling homeowners they can save lots of money if they do not follow the the requirements on RRP jobs. Homeowners eager to cut costs are lining up all over America seeking contractors who do not follow the practices. In order to stay under the radar homeowners and contractors agree to not pull permits on these jobs.
