How are you coping with the new lead paint removal laws?
Dh bought one of the infra red paint removers. We haven't tried it yet. Soon! I guess its fortunate that we have aluminium siding which dh is also re-painting (after cleaning, and filling dents.) The huge area's that still need to be scraped before painting, other than some of the eaves and window trim, is the front porches pillars and railings. Downstairs isn't so bad because we had to replace the old railings tho the ceiling and soffit and pillars still need work. Upstairs is all original with old peeling probably lead paint. I think no contractor would want to touch it now, with the new laws, so we are lucky we're still young enough to do it ourselves.
Are you doing your own painting or finding folks who can comply with the laws for a reasonable price?
