We are a New England-based Association with 112 units. There are four units to a building; two interior, two exterior. Our siding is wood clapboarding. I have two questions: Our Association is on a seven year paint cycle. Once every seven years all buildings on a particular street are painted. The Association is started to push the cycle out even further. Between cycles, our buildings are not cleaned, they are not power washed. Contractors have begun to question our paint cycle -- stating that the seven year cycle is too long, given the materials and the New England weather. Any advice as to what other communities do; or opinions about our current exterior maintenance schedule? I'm highly concerned because I see us pushing it out, not bringing it in.
