Shawn McCadden, President of Remodel My Business, Inc, founded, operated,
and sold a successful design/build company in 2004. Today he speaks
frequently at industry conferences and trade events, writes for trade
publications, blogs and consults with remodeling companies. He also
consults with construction-related product manufacturers and suppliers,
helping them understand, find, educate and better serve remodelers in
mutually beneficial ways.
A new survey of remodelers regarding the Environmental Protection Agency's recently launched rule regarding renovations in homes with lead paint indicates remodelers are counting--sometimes unsuccessfully--on their local building supply dealer to help them deal with a rule that they're following more out of fear and duty than out of concern over lead paint's health dangers.
