On this job the new homeowner wanted the back trellis painted at first.
During the preparation stage, upon execution of pressure washing it was determined that the structure was very poorly built and a danger to his family and children. This must have been an unpermitted addition from a previous owner. The tops of the beams and lattice had a severe case of dry-rot and the support beams where only in the ground about 4 feet. A strong wind could have easily blown it over. We are typically known as Castro Valley Painting Company but we also do several handyman services. The customer was very pleased that we could remove this accident waiting to happen, cut into manageable pieces. We also came over after the homeowner scheduled a garbage pic up and carried all the debris out to the side walk the day before. The previous also tried to repaint this house himself at one time but never addressed the upper portions of the side that where 2 story and very hard to get to. The eaves and fascia's needed a lot of preparation, priming and paint to protect them from time and the elements.

Matching previously applied wall and ceiling textures can be a challenge and somewhat of an art. In some cases you will have to smooth and retexture a complete surface (wall or ceiling) to replace it with something more consistent that somewhat matches it surroundings. That is mostly common in acoustic ceiling or (popcorn) ceiling removal.
There are a few ways that interior textures can be applied and often times you will have to experiment with material mixture and technique to match previous
textures after drywall repairs.
Hand drywall matching to a previous tradesman's technique will usually start out with a little bit of trial and error testing. Sometimes it's good to have a small piece of drywall to practice on. Some textures are applied with a pan and knife or a hawk and trowel. Some drywall textures make use of special brushes or swirl patterns in the mud. Some texture's are rolled on which is called stipple texture.
Here are a few of the more popular hand applied textures that I have had to match
Here are some of the more common spray applied textures.
I have attached some recent before and after pictures addressing this topic... smooth wall being the most time consuming
