Ho's don't seem to have any reason to actively pursue exterior work in the winter. They will wait till it starts getting nice in spring and expect you to jump on there house right away.

That is not true, we book jobs all year long. Winter we sell a ton of work.

Though we've had good weather this winter, I've only done trim repairs and priming. Hope to paint a section tomorrow! Unbelievably warm here!

I have jobs booked into late April.

I know, this is a necro thread (whatever that means, old?).

I think necro has more to do with dead.

I guess for forum purposes, it may signify old and buried.

Can we have a necro topic?

It seems all any one wants to talk about is which paint is better and why XYZ company is lousy!

I may go retro and find some good and still pertinent threads!!

Imo, there are many.

There are also some that deserved to be buried.

I agree with that too!! It's just that there were under 8000 members when I joined and now there's over 12k.

There must be many topics that can be revived, even though they may be considered old news to some.

I have gone back and read some, but I'd bet some people's take on it would be different now, as well as new members' getting in on the discussion.
