Is replacing a pane of glass or fixing a broken window balancer a renovation covered by the RRP Rule?

It depends.  Replacing a pane of glass or fixing a broken window balancer can disturb paint.  If the job disrupts more than six square feet of painted surface per room, the job is not considered minor repair and maintenance and it is covered by the RRP Rule.  When removing a component, calculate the six square foot area based on the surface area of the component.
