In this study, the statistical distribution of the reference service life of exterior wood coatings has been calculated for two coating systems: an alkyd oil and a solvent-borne alkyd (stain). The estimated service life has been evaluated, based on exposure tests and on the assessment of experts for another three coating systems (namely a solvent-borne alkyd coating, a water-borne acrylic coating, and a water-borne acrylic stain). It has been shown that the combination of a standard procedure for the measurement of cracking and statistical tools, such as reliability-based methodologies, for predicting the service life of coating systems gives more information regarding reference service life data than purely by a measurement of cracking.
