Blanton Construction has earned Lead-Safe Certification through the Environmental Protection Agency.

What does this mean for you? It means you can rest easy knowing we are fully trained in how to safely renovate your home or mobile home, reducing the dangers associated with lead paint - and its dust - poisoning.

Estimates say more than one million children are affected by lead paint poisoning every day.

Lead paint has the potential to cause learning disabilities, behavioral problems and speech delays.

Employees at Blanton Construction are trained to make home repairs using lead-safe techniques, which means working in a low-dust environment and disturbing the lead-based products as little as possible.

The EPA requires certified renovators to take eight hours and training, including two hours of hands-on work. And every five years, renovators must become recertified.

It's true. At some point, everyone needs a hammer, whether you are hanging a new photo or need to put together an entertainment center.

There are a few things to keep in mind before you head to your local hardware store. And remember, the choices are seeminlgy endless and many hammers are made for specific jobs - e.g. roofing, upholstery, etc.

So keep in mind three basic requirements: Face, Weight, Handle.

First off, narrow your search to the claw hammers, the claw will come in handy for misplaced nails or brackets that need to be moved.

The face of the hammer - which is where the nail meets the tool - come in smooth or milled, which means it's got a pattern etched into the face.

Advantage of smooth? No divots when you miss your nail head, which you will do, even the pros miss.

Next up is weight. Yes, hammers are categorized by weight. Up to a pound, which can be a bit unwieldy for around the house chores. Light work? Light hammer. Heavy work? Heavier hammer. Just remember, the longer you swing the hammer the heavier it's going to feel.

Finally, choose your handle. These days there are plenty of comfort options. Like the shock reduction grips, rubber non-slip, even bamboo.

As for prices? You can pick up a basic claw hammer with a wood handle for as littls as $5. If you want to look cool in front of your friends? Well, leave the price tag on those $40 hammers. And watch out for those thumbs.
