I under-estimate when speaking with the customer regarding repaint times, and I'm sure to let them know that there are multiple variables to how long a paint job lasts, yada yada...

I suggest that 7-10 years is standard time for re-staining Solid Stain. I am quick to remind them that Solid Stain (on Cedar) is pre-emptive maintenance, and is meant to be done BEFORE it shows signs of weathering, and once cupping/warping/splitting/etc... happens, its too late to fix.

I sometimes suggest 10+ years for a "re-paint", but many of the re-paints I do have "underlying, pre-existing conditions".

That house you did looks great for 15 years!
