Default Looked at a big lead job

Yesterday we looked at a big lead job. The owner and I were talking about lead paint process. He said the siding will be all removed and replaced. He also said he decided to hire a non licensed or certified contractor due to the added costs. I politely said I think we will have to pass on this one.

The Exeter river is very close to the back of the building. No way in heck will we chance us getting into trouble because if the carpenter. I already know he will just rip and toss the old siding without wrapping it in plastic first. I know some will end up in the river.

Our bid was for scraping lead paint on all trim and wooden gutters. All siding was being ripped off and replaced by a carpenter.

We found out yesterday the contractor isn't licensed or certified. I won't touch this project now at all.

I'm assuming that you have to be lead certified where you are..Curious, would it not also be more appropriate (and safer) to just remove all the trim and gutters and replace as well? ..
The amount of work involved in containing all that paint from scraping would incredible.
Would you scrape by hand or with grinders?

When you manually remove the boards and trim, it entails cutting, ripping apart etc, and would require containing dust/debris and bagging each piece anyways, tough job. The carpenters will be contaminating the whole outside and likely the interior space as well in their procedures.
