Default Why NOT to paint when it's too cold.......And gonna rain......

Lately there has been some discussion on painting in colder weather. I've also been involved in several other lively conversations where I've felt it's paramount that the owner of the company know exactly what they're doing, and how to do it. I submit some photos of why really knowing your business is important. NOTE: This was NOT one of my JOBS...........As the venue is a public place with public access no privacy laws were violated here........

The photos were taken today (12-26-09) and certain blocking was done as to protect the privacy of both the building owner and the company that did the work out of respect.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Yes and parking lot and other stuff......I'm told it was acrylic paint but still I wonder if there can be repercussions from the EPA or anything about this. Man o Man what a mess.

Wow! I've never seen a failure gone THAT bad!!

I had a GC once demand I painted a set of overhead doors in extreme cold weather (I think it was november and it was getting as cold as -10C at night) in spite of my repeated assurances it would fail and refusal to warranty work on them. He didn't care at the time because he just wanted color on those doors. Well surprise surprise, the following spring the paint had all peeled off from the middle of the door to the bottom. All I could say was "told you so".

Good thing was I got to bill those doors twice. And i'm betting he won't do that again.

Honestly I thought that would be the case when the fellow that used to work for me called me and told me they were doing it. (Although I terminated him we still talk it was more a professional thing and not a "personal" thing).....anyway ya this one went totally south.

I think it will be a wash when he turns in the change order for the faux!

I'll have to let them know about the faux thing. That was a good one. I haven't heard exactly how it's gonna play out yet. I hope to at least hear about it. I know the fellow that used to work for me is a little tired of hearing about it. I suspect I'll find out though.

All kidding aside, I feel for the guy. I am sure he felt he had a valid reason to proceed. But we never know. Rob got demo'd some primer and after it was sprayed they watched it sink to the floor, not a good feeling!

Yes that would be horrible. Honestly I feel for them too. I guess times were hard and they "thought" they could get away with it. I asked the fellow was his boss nuts? I think having to wear insulated coveralls outside to paint might say something. At any rate I'll let everyone know how it ends up if I get the info. I just wanted to show first hand why "not" to do something we've discussed on occasion here and why it's so important that the person holding the reigns really has a full clue about what they're doing.
