Homeowners were hoping to save all the original details in their house during a renovation but are now faced with having to decide what to save. The painted woodwork has been stripped of paint, but tests show their children have elevated lead levels. On a limited budget, they are trying to prioritize what they can save while still addressing the lead concerns.
Should they have the house inspected so they know what areas have the highest concentration of lead before making any decisions?
Please chime in with your advice.
