    Default lead paint

    I was wondering about lead paint on salvage doors and windows. Do you test them? How do you remove the paint? thanks

    You'll know it's lead paint if it's chipping and it's hard. Oil base paint tends to peel but lead chips. Here at Island Girl Salvage we try to strip doors and windows of their paint prior to selling them although there are people who prefer the look of the chipped paint. One more point abotu lead paint, the rule of thumb is that if the paint is not chipping it's considered sealed and not harmful.
