Some buyers prefer older homes over new builds because of their charm and uniqueness. From architecture to lot size, there are many plusses when considering the purchase of a home built before the 1970s. However, as technology has progressed, we know more about homebuilding and materials than builders did 50 years ago. While materials like lead-based paint used to be common in houses, they are not found in new homes today.
Lead-based paint was commonly used in homes before the 1970s. However, using lead-based paint is not allowed today because of the health reactions it can cause. If disturbed, lead-based paint can contribute to respiratory irritation, among other symptoms.
As a part of Premier Home Inspection’s environmental testing, we provide lead-based paint testing for clients that request it. Our team of experienced inspectors has the tools available to test paint for lead and may be able to provide recommendations for mitigation if tests are positive.
Whether you have already purchased a home or are looking into buying one built before 1970, consider booking an appointment with the experienced home inspectors at Premier Home Inspection. If lead exists in the paint in your home, it can help you decide how to move forward or whether to purchase the home.
Our company slogan is “Be Advised, Not Surprised” for a reason—we do not want you to be caught off guard by the negative ramifications issues in your home can cause. Before you buy a home, be sure that you know all the facts—book an appointment with Premier Home Inspection.
