lead paint

Lead paint comes up quite often in real estate transactions. For any home that was built prior to 1978 you can pretty much assume there is lead present. It’s not a huge risk if it is managed properly. However, if you are remodeling or doing a fun project with some old building materials, concerns can rise.

The Environmental Protection Agency offers a great brochure that provides quite a bit of helpful information on the topic. You can download their PDF directly from their website.
