What to do with exposed external timber & gutters painted in green

last month

The 2 story brick house has lots of timber inside & outside, Our painter is suggesting painting the timber black as opposed to re-staining in order to protect the timber. House is in a leafy suburb and surrounded by garden. Gutters & other exposed timber is dark green, light coloured brick. We rendered the front in neutral brick colour with rust rendered court yard which was fabulous at the time but now seems dated. Would appreciate ideas.
