|The truth of the matter is, that there is NO absolute correct answer to this question. If the lead is shot it should be replaced. EXCEPT in some cases. Such as historically significant windows or windows in museums. In these cases the lead should be saved if possible.
The only absolute answer to this question is that the age of the lead or the window has NO bearing what so ever as to whether a window needs to be releaded. There are leads in windows in Europe that are centuries old and in fine condition. And there are windows that are only 50 years old that can use a total relead. EVERY window condition is different and needs to analyzed on it's own merits.
