Plastering Question

When's the best time of year to have render applied/re-applied?

The rendering on our flank wall is blown to the front of the house, and we are considering having it removed and re-rendered. I believe it formed part of remedial works when the house was moving in the late 70's. In additon, we'd probably want a couple of air bricks put in. I was thinking spring rather than winter months was best, but am unsure if it actually makes any difference in the end result?

spring/summer are the times to do this.It is highly unlikely that any good tradesmen would consider doing this when theres a chance of frost.If you were to do it now,you would very likely be wasting your time and money.
