I just always thought " Why do those prima donna drywall tapers get to demand the heat be on before they start work?". Ungrateful selfish bastards!
Southern California is about as close to indoors as you get. Very mild here, quite nice roofing weather for most of the year. Shorts and a tee shirt is the uniform of choice almost year round. Although it was 37 the last few morings, cant recall it being that cold here for a long time...i blame Canada.

The Business of Repairing Roofs


OldNBroken, That is really funny. If you only knew how many seminars on new products where my foremen and I looked at each other, and said "Yeah, Right"

Roll it out, let it relax for 20 minutes, apply adhesive, wait 12 minutes. Not 10, and not 15, or it wont work. Do not allow any wind blown dirt in adhesive, etc. etc. etc.

And the demonstration is in a conditioned warehouse, on a new plywood mockup.

Yeah, we got a lot of those.
