dear wise brownstoners,
we’re beginning a gut renovation and we’re concerned about infant/toddler lead exposure. paying 1,000 to test for it seems silly since we know we have it.
i’ve been told it’s the responsibility of our gc to assure it’s removed during construction. so if we have a lead inspection after construction is completed and it’s positive, what then? does our gc have any responsibility to assure it’s removed?
i also know there are companies that do lead abatement. is there any sense in having this done prior to construction? (we are doing asbestos abatement)
could any of you share wisdom on this? (and if you’d please withhold the “don’t worry about lead” commentary i’d appreciate it)
