    Default Exterior Paint Chipping and Peeling

    We bought our house 23 years ago. It was dark brown and had an oily stain that rubbed off on our young children's clothes. So we hired painters to use a solid gray stain over it. We have done this 4 or 5 times and we still have cracking and peeling chunks of gray stain falling off, especially after a severe New England winter.
    We are ready to call the painter again to patch it up, but are wondering if anyone out there would have any idea how to stop this once and for all. New siding is not an option. Thanks.
