Lead Based Paint In Louisville Homes

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Louisville East (502) 664-7827

The risks of lead based paint are real, and some older neighborhoods in Louisville have a higher likelihood of harboring the problem.

Lead based paint Louisville KYPicturesque neighborhoods such as Clifton, Crescent Hill, Germantown, Highlands, Old Louisville all have houses built in the early 1900's. Portland, the West End, Downtown, NuLu, Limerick, Churchill Downs area, all have the risk of lead based paint.

You don't even have to have lead based paint in your home to be susceptible. If your neighbor's home, or nearby homes, have, for example, wood siding with chipping paint, you and your family are at-risk. The paint chips or lead dust can be tracked into your home. Children can be playing in the yard that may have paint chips and lead in the soil.

When buying older homes, always have a Realtor on your side who is experienced with pre-1978 homes.

Lead is a very lethal threat to health of all occupants especially children under six. Erie has similar problem with 40% of properties

It's a good warning to share with others, especially when considering an older home. We ran into this all the time back in Boston!

Fantastic explanation, Dave. Many of our homes were built in the early 1900's as well and deal with LBP all of the time in those areas. And, you're right - sometimes even the soil has to be abated. Sadly, many agents forget recommending soil testing, even around the perimeter of the home.
