Texture

I want to paint a front section of my house using latex and texture. I need some advice on the size of the texture and what kind of roll to use. All your comments are appreciated.

What's the surface?
Wood, metal, stucco?
Painted, raw?

Well, Pookey
I must say I've never run into that before
I'll have to stay tuned along with you and see if someone else has done a texture on an exterior wood front of a house

Why are you wanting to texture exterior wood?
I would be leary about how well it would hold up. There are some exterior textured coatings that are designed for commercial bldgs but I think it is always sprayed on concrete walls.

This is an entree to the front door thats about 8 x 12, it's plain with some defects on it and I thought it would look better with some texture to it. This shows how much I know about paint and texture.

Do you mean like a sand paint?
Or make it look like that textured stucco?

What kind of defects?

Would sanding the wood help? You can use exterior spackling to fill in minor defects.

Slickshift, I think you hit it. using sand should do it. I guess mixing sand with Latex shouldn't be any problem. Thanks
