We want to have our house painted and want to make sure it's done right!

Our house was built in the late 60s, and has wood siding. It appears to have been painted in the last 15 years, though we can’t be sure. We’re going from a dark red to a light gray color, It’s likely some of the wood will need to be replaced/fixed/caulked and the windows will need to be re-glazed or caulked. There’s a lot of trim that will need to be painted a second color. [more inside]

Who should get the job painting my house?

I'm having my 200 year old house in New England repainted, and some significant carpentry work done, mainly to replace wood that has rotted. I have narrowed several bids for this job down to two. How do I decide which bid to accept? This is a very big job, is going to cost a significant amount of money (five figures), and will have a very large impact on the value and integrity of the house, especially if its done wrong. The job is complicated by flaking, alligatory lead paint on many parts of the house, which will require special handling. [more inside]
