In 2000, the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency (IHPA) published an NCPTT funded training manual on the subject of lead paint and historic buildings.  The IHPA recognizes confusion in the building rehabilitation industry regarding safe, appropriate lead paint treatments.  The manual suggests that the safest techniques are fully compatible with retention of historic building components.  Lead and Historic Buildings, which is available in the above download, includes sections on a variety of lead paint and historic building topics including:

1) Lead, Lead Hazards, and Lead Regulation – A Primer
2) Causes of Building Deterioration (and how they relate to lead paint failure)
3) Evaluating a Building for Lead
4) Planning for Safe Rehabilitation
5) Site Setup (and methods that facilitate lead safety)
6) Dust Control – Protecting Workers and the Work Site
7) Treatments
8) Project Scheduling
9) Ongoing Maintenance
10) Historic Preservation Regulations and Guidelines
11) Insurance Issues
12) Tools, Supplies, Equipment Sources

In addition to the training manual, the the IHPA also created a companion Teacher’s Guide to Lead Paint and Historic Buildings, which is designed to aid classroom instruction of this material.

One Response to Lead Paint and Historic Buildings, Training Manual (2002-07)

    I live in a 1920s brick two-flat, so there is lead paint everywhere. Right now, we’re trying to figure out how to remove lead paint from some of the exterior features of the house–particularly the limestone features. A previous owner painted our limestone window sills, the portico, and decorative features. (I could write a book about all the remuddling we’re trying to undo.) So now we’re trying to figure out the best route for removing lead paint from the limestone without degrading the stone and without dumping lead into our garden. (Any suggestions are welcome.)
