A couple of years ago I hired out this guy to paint my house. I just have a little bit of trim on the right side and on the bottom floor under the windows plus the windows. Anyway all the paint has just about peeled off. So I went ahead and scraped and sanded everything. Use a good primer and the final coat. What really burnt me up was he musta used bottom of the line crap-o-la paint. I guess if ya want something done right ya might as well do it yourself. BTW, I hate painting.
