Paint on clapboards peels every few years

Hi,   We’ve had our house painted professionally twice in the past 8 years or so and each time after about 2 years the paint in one section begins to bubble up and peel off in strips.  Is this wood bad?  What can I do to fix this?  I don’t want to have the house professionally painted again if this is going to continue to happen. Thanks, David

What brand of paint was used… use only Sherwin Williams or Behr brands… use an acrylic latex paint… perhaps you have a local water or moisture problem in the area of peeling, or as you said a local rotten substraight problem, requiring replacement… Good Luck

It’s hard to say without seeing it in person, but perhaps you have a leak somewhere that causes moisture to collect locally, and thus causing peeling…
