Jerome Gruenberg, Mattson Construction Estimator, said, “The rule of thumb when it`s zero or above we work and if its zero or below than we typically don`t work. It`s really hard to stay warm when it`s below zero. You lose production and you lose focus on what you should be doing.”
Troy Bragg, Redwood Creek Builder, said, “It`s bundling up, keeping your tools from freezing up. Air compressors, nail guns, they freeze up, so just keeping things warm and trudging along.”
The workers said it`s tough when the weather doesn`t cooperate, because a day they can`t work is a day they can`t get paid.
