Last week I sent an email to my general contractor saying that the weather is too cold for installing stucco; it was barely above zero during the day and minus 6 at night. He started installing on Thursday, Nov 13 and did not install any heaters. The house itself has no heating for the last half year, it is under renovation and heating is not functioning.
Contractor is saying that stucco will be fine and cold temperatures are no problem. I do not really believe him. What can I do?
Plastering when the temperature is at or near freezing causes another set of problems for the
contractor or installer. There are precautionary measures that can be taken to protect the project
during cold adverse weather conditions. Extra care should be observed if the temperature is not
at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4.4 degrees Celsius) and rising, or if the temperature drops below
32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius) after the wall has been plastered.
