Paint on your door

Mary, lead has not been in paint for 20 years and most paint for 10-20 years before that had no lead. I still suspect that the reason your paint is flaking is that it is not sticking to the varnish. Other causes for paint to flake are water and weathering but usually it is a surface prep problem. If you suspect that the paint is over 20-25 years old, then do take lead precautions.
