I'd say production goes down by 10% every 10 degrees below freezing. In fairbanks a franchise will come in with a big hotel or box store and decide to schedule exterior work in the winter, with some out of state contractor. They end up encasing the whole building in a plastic bubble and heating it. One had 8 1million btu diesel heaters going, $6000 a day fuel bill plus heater rental.

Outside if its below 15ºf its so slow going its not worth it. Now if your at least in a structure we can do single digits. Got lucky and next week when its going to be negative temps, we scored a warm inside job!
