peeling off exterior lead paint
The house is very old. Recently we found the paint on exterior wood (such as eaves, garage trims) are peeling off.
We talked to paint contractors about repaint the exterior. They all said that the loose paint needs to be scraped or sanded away. But None of them mentions about the possibility of lead. I sent paint chip for testing. And the result shows it contains high level of lead. I only tested the paint on the wood; that's where the paint is peeling off. The paint on the stucco is different and looks very solid.
We have small child at home, and we are expecting another baby. We want to play it safe. Any advice?
