Shoddy Painter - What is my recourse or rights ?


1 year ago the exterior of my house was repainted (24 000 chf), by a reputable Swiss Painter.
Now 1 year later the paint is pealing from the shutters and blinds.

The painter says its because the wood is old. A 2nd opinion from another painter says that he clearly used the wrong product.
I have contacted an "expertise" but he wants to charge me 1700chf to come have a look - adding insult to injury.

Surely work should last more than 1 year.

What other recourse do I have? Is there a code of conduct ? a legal body who protects the consumer?

Thanks in advance
