    The joy's of winter!! Worse when it freezes on you and starts sagging and dropping off!! That's why I won't touch s/c in winter ain't worth the stress

    Sod’s law all my rendering jobs come this time of year, for me a dry spring day is ideal weather for rendering.

    We get no end of render enquiries from autumn onwards.
    "Not until spring", they always seem surprised.
    Different if I've got plenty of inside work on the same job so I can pick and choose the suitable days.

    Guaranteed the phone rings from the end of November for external rendering, I either tell them to wait till march or pass to a guy who's geared up for it. He has a few lads and works off Dutch pins and works in all weathers and does a top job. People don't look at their roofs or walls till the sun stops shining then s**t it lol

    No kidding, within an hour of posting yesterday the phone rings with another rendering enquiry!
    This time the potential customer listens and agrees that it'd be better left until spring, despite him having a scaffold up already.
    I like talking to sensible people.

    Prefer winter to Spring. Spring can be cold and wet.

    Winter is either too cold or wet.
