How cold is to cold to caulk?

I am going to inspect the roof in a few days for the 1st time. (Other than quick check at PDI).

Say that I find a problem, how cold is too cold to caulk? Going to use self leveling dicor on rubber roof.

Depends on material, start with 50-60F minimum. Try and google Dicor.

The only reference to temperature on my tube of dicor is "In cold weather, warm at room temperature before use". That is it nothing else.

This is corect. You'll want to warm it to indoor temperatures (60-80 degrees) when using it in cold temps. It spreads easier this way but will take longer to cure in cold temps.

X2, this is what my tube says also. just be sure 'clean and dry' before applying.

Thanks everyone.

I am planning on washing /winterizering/inspecting/maintaining everything at a local CG in mid November and temps are usually 50's/30's at worst. (No hookups where I store)

I can advance or delay the trip by a few days for bad weather but I wanted to be sure it was at least in right ballpark.

Sounds like it will be ok if I keep dicor at room temp before use.
