My firm has been hired to replace windows in a home built before 1978. The existing windows are mil-finish aluminum. Because we will not disturb a painted surface, is this activity subject to the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) ruling?

No. The activity described above does not disturb a painted surface. Therefore, the requirements of the RRP Rule do not apply.
