2 factors to be considered during colder applications.

Temperature with wind.

and

Are the rolls left in the sub-freezing or kept warm in the truck until needed.

An experienced torch roofing mechanic will be able to tell if the roll is too cold when rolling it out and it starts to spider-web crack while unravelling.

What are the "At Odds" points between your roofer and the supplier?

I know, but I have been down there when it got down to 20*, which shouldn't be too cold, but I wanted to know what issues the roofer and the supplier were in disagreement about.
