Lead Paint

Recommended Posts

Inspected a home built in 1874 today. Most of the exterior doors had the paint cracking in the small 2x2 square type of pattern.

The realtor said that a home inspector once told her that this was a sign of lead paint. I replied that although I would think lead paint had been used in the home at some point the cracking pattern would most likely be do to lack of a primer base coat, improper exterior paint and weathering.

Truth or urban legend on this pattern and lead paint?
