    I usually spread it around our block then go see the neighbours and do along the fence line of either side at least.

Of course, economies of scale and longevity come into it too - I don't want to push shit up hill paying someone to prepare the wood only for the paint to peel in a few years because the exposed wood is past its use-by-date. Same for some of the windows - I may need them replaced (presumably very exxy!).

    Does anyone know of any home restoration companies they'd recommend to assess the wood cladding and windows and provide a quote to sand and paint the existing cladding and windows that are still in ok condition, and to replace the bits that need replacing, and to paint. The quote will likely be 50% sand and paint existing wood, and 50% replace and paint. But of course, with the wood being 60+ years old, it may be worth replacing with cement fibre boards or something.

    Also, if anyone has any painter recommendations please post up. I may do a two step process with getting someone to replace the boards/windows and then getting a painter to paint them.

    Thanks

    edit: the outer walls above the cladding are asbestos but shouldn't be disturbed.
