Lead Detection LLC is owned and operated by Marc Elbaum of Meredith, NH.  As a life-long musician, Marc never anticipated a career change (especially one where he inspects homes for lead paint).  However, while having one of his own properties inspected for lead paint prior to a sale, he recognized an immediate need in this small service industry. Upon further research he learned that there were only about a dozen state licensed inspectors in NH.  After getting licensed and apprenticing with one of the states top inspectors (George Tocci of Lead Tech) he was on his way to helping keep NH lead-safe.  Over 10 years later Marc is proud to have inspected well over 1000 properties and looks forward to helping you.   

And of course he still plays music with NH's renowned Wicked Smart Horn Band.
