    If they call for chance of rain do you guys still go out and seal? The weather has been so bad around here. Its rained everyday for like 2 weeks.

    its really hard to tell if its gonna rain because the weather forecast is always wrong. if you watch the radar and you know you can get the job done and there will be a few hours after your done before it rains go ahead. I had about 30 jobs that I had to reschedule because of the damm rain. didd about 5 on saturday and 7 today even though they said it was gonna rain it was beautiful today...

    I watch the weather radar, on my blackberry, as the weather patterns in my area can change so fast, as I'm between all the great lakes. The last 2 weeks have been a nightmare for scheduling.
  4. Very true, the last 2 weeks cost me thousands, but i do go out and try to put some jobs down,i add quick dry.
    Even if i have to redo some after no big deal as long as we made something and keepo the ball rolling.
    You will never know what could have been if you dont go.
