How can I tell if my cedar sided house was stained or painted?

Jack asked 5 years ago

My cedar sided house needs to be restained, or so I thought. I thought the last painter stained. The new painter that was giving me a quote indicated that the last guy used paint. He said he saw evidence of bear wood and peeling. He further indicated that if it was painted, the next refresh must be paint and not stain. How can I tell if it was stained or painted?
