EPA Reaches Settlement with DIY Series for Lead Paint Violations

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced a collective settlement with Denver-area contractors KGN Asset Management, LLC, KGN Asset Management, Inc., and Restoration Realty, Inc. as part of an initiative to protect Denver residents from lead paint poisoning. 

The contracting firms are associated with Keith Nylund, the host of the DIY Network series “Raise the Roof.” According to the settlement, the firm conducted seven home renovations from 2014 to 2016 without properly following the Lead (RRP) Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. Violations include not attaining a Lead-Safe Firm Certification, failure to maintain proper records for the EPA to review, and not properly instituting lead-safe work practices. The firms have paid a $30,000 penalty for their violations.

Avoid fines and protect your community. Register to become a certified Lead Renovator or refresh your Lead RRP certification today.
