Lead painting siding -- abatement, replacement, or patch painting
We purchased a house built in 1925. Had lead testing conducted and as expected all painted trim and siding were positive. The house went through a couple flippers and various painting techniques have caused large, large patches (think 3"x2'in some places) of paint all over the house to lift from the actual wood. I'm very familiar with EPA guidelines and would be comfortable attempting the abatement myself--BUT I'm pregnant and we have a 3 year old. Our plan at the moment is to have my husband carefully (following all precautions/guidelines) lift those peeling areas during the rainy season, then paint the patches during summer.
The greater issue is do we paint the entire house, knowing that subsequent layers will probably lift again or do we hire lead abatement specialists to deal with the paint or potentially reside the house? Can anyone share siding lead abatement quotes for siding? Or the cost of removing the siding and replacing?
We love our house. Any input would be appreciated.
