When Was Lead Paint Banned?
Lead-based paint was completely banned for consumer usage in 1978. Before then, it was growing less and less popular, and there were smaller bans on a state level. If your home was built before 1940, there’s about an 87% chance that it contained lead. For constructions in the 1960 - 1977 range, the chance is about 24%--Definitely worth checking. If you have a home built before 1978 and it was repainted, it doesn’t necessarily mean the lead was dealt with. There could be a layer of lead-based paint underneath. The danger is if the top level of paint is in poor condition and peeling or flaking off.
