If you live in an older home in San Diego (a home built prior to 1978), chances are, it has lead paint somewhere in it, including the areas around its current windows. You may want to replace the original windows in your home with modern, energy-efficient windows, but are unsure of how to deal with the lead paint. Should you have it removed? Paint over it? Is it best just to leave it alone?
Lead paint can be hazardous, but only when it is disturbed, or when it begins to flake or peel, creating lead dust. When people, especially children, inhale lead dust, they may experience a range of health problems. That said, there are ways to safely remove windows containing lead-based paint, allowing you to have the benefits of energy-efficient replacement windows without contaminating the air in your home.
