THAT is correct! So why do none of your posts contain questions about how to DO IT YOURSELF!!!!

I'll refrain from your style of name calling, difficult though it might be...

Advice on exterior painters

There are many pros on here who have given you their opinion. I'm a regular DIY gal. Remember that you will get what you pay for. Sorry to have inferred that you were going with the cheapest one.

Personally I would want a guarantee that it will last 5 years. No one wants to repaint yearly or biyearly. I personally would go with someone who would caulk not apply extra paint.

The choice is yours to make as it's your home.

Gentlemen/Ladies. You have calmed me at times.

Pursuing this further helps neither the OP or others reading this.

But let's move on. Some have thanked us for helping?

We cannot help this person.

Advice on exterior painters

Nope, paint is no substitute for caulk or patch. You have to do it properly, I know you are in bad situation but think of it, your home might be the biggest investment you have is that where you want to cut costs by 5-10 times the real value?
The biggest problem might not even be that, if one of those painters gets hurt and they don't have workers comp then you could be reliable for their medical and disability.
