Does the RRP Rule Apply if An Electrician or Plumber Needs to Cut a 6 SQ Foot Hole..
Posted by on February 18, 2013
If an electrician or plumber, working in a different room from the contained renovation project, needs to drill or cut a hole six square feet or less in size to chase a wire or pipe, does the RRP rule apply to that work?
As long as 6 square feet or less of painted surface in that room is disrupted with 30 days, including the work done by the electrician or plumber, and the job does not use prohibited practices or involve window replacement or demolition of painted surfaces, the minor repair and maintenance exception to the RRP rule applies.
