I did one this year that was 13 years ago and was in remarkably good shape. I tell people every 6-8 years is the expected life even when using premium paints. The oklahoma sun is brutal and any remotely dark color will fade. I started in 2009 so I have been starting to do houses that I did previously. I have a couple customers that want it done every 5 years and just put them on the schedule they say. They are very maintenance oriented people and it seems to work out well. Just wash and paint those basically no other prep is needed.

Where are you located at Stelzer. I would be interested to know what areas of the country people are from and how long the jobs last. I imagine new vs repaint matters too. Sometimes the wood is at a point where it may not need to be replaced yet but I'm not sure it holds paint well either.
