If less than half the old paint is left, however, it may be worth stripping it all off. Guertin gets rid of stubborn remnants using shrouded grinders (like the PaintShaver), infrared paint strippers (such as the Speedheater), or chemical strippers (like Multi-Strip), then smooths the wood with a course or two of sanding. When siding (or bank accounts) can't take the shock of a total strip job, Rich O'Neil, of Masterwork Painting in Bedford, Massachusetts, has successfully hidden rough, well-adhered paint under Peel Bond, a thick primer.

#4 You have to be very careful about choosing the accessories. You should find something resourceful, easy-to-use and more effective. As an example, you should find a suitable extension pole instead of the ladders. These extension poles will help you paint the surface from a closer distance and will allow painting the surface more precisely. Also, you should find painting grids instead of the popular trays. Before you start, you should arrange all the items you might need while painting.
#2 Many time, homeowners complain about the paint quality as they often see stains come through the new paint and show up on the wall again. Again, it is important to prep the surface, ust the proper primer. If you have tough stains on the exterior walls prior to painting, then make sure you use a quality stain block to prevent the stain from bleeding through.
The frequency of your exterior repainting depends on several factors, including where you live, what your house is made out of, and what it was painted with. In North Texas, we’re protected from the salt sprays our coastal friends down south must consider. Even still, strong sunshine and excessive heat during the summer can take a serious toll on the life of your paint. Dark, oil-based paints may fade especially quickly. The paint may blister, too, or form bubbles on the surface. So there’s no concrete answer for how often to repaint your home — but if you start to see chips, cracks, bleaching, blistering, or any other issue that takes away from the appearance of your home, it’s time to consider repainting.
