Removing old caulk instead of caulking over old is best, as new caulk follows the path of old cracked caulk. Replace trim and siding beyond repair with new wood trim and siding. Prime all bare wood surfaces as a part of professionally painting exterior home's siding and trim. Exterior primer bonds and adheres to bare wood much better than exterior finish coats do. Apply 2 coats Wet on Dry when either spraying, brushing or rolling. If you are painting your own home's exterior trim and siding, plan spending approximately 8 hours for every 200 sq. ft of floor space your home contains. If your home's interior sq. footage is 2000 sq. ft. Plan using 10 days, and 80 work hours from power washing to final clean-up for a Professional Exterior Painting Job, providing you have proper tools, equipment, energy and painting knowledge, as these exterior painting estimates are for ideal conditions all being met. If you lack either one of these areas, my suggestion would be to locate a Professional exterior painting contractor in your area.

Eco Paint has been painting exterior homes for over 30 years, so this is second nature to the staff at Eco Paint, who stands behind their work 100%. Paint trim is usually hand brushed and rolled and done last on most exterior paint jobs. Painting trim normally takes the longest of all exterior painting work, being done all by hand. When you are painting siding, two coats wet on dry method is recommended by paint manufactures, not because your buying more paint from them, but 2 coats lasts much longer than 1 coat, and paint warranties are figured using this method, having spent millions for their R&D each year. If you only put one coat on, your in for a unwelcome surprise having exterior paint not lasting near the recommended life-time. When painting walls outside, always best to work from the top down, painting from left to right. This is important when your using a very similar paint color, being hard to tell where you've painted and where you have not, so working in a systematic formation is always best. Siding painting is best done during 45-75 degree dry weather conditions, with lowest humidity. If very high humidity, moisture can be trapped behind paint, causing it to bubble within 2-3 months.
