    Does it matter if you plaster on a hot day?

    The guys are scheduled to plaster tomorrow. The forecast is about 90 by 2 pm. Forecast for Saturday is a high of 76.

    Does it matter if they guys plaster on a warm day? Should anything be done differently?

    Plaster is a Mini-Pebble, similar to Pebble Sheen, if that makes a difference.

    Thanks.

    I think the short answer is it DOES matter somewhat. Good plasterers will take precautions on a hot day that the material doesn't dry and set up too quickly. I would bring up the subject with the plasterer and gauge his reaction.

    That's a cool weather site....mind sharing the url?

    90+ is no problem for a plaster crew that has any experience. What you absolutely don't want is rain while the plaster is being applied or for about the next hour or two.
