Installing replacement windows now

I have gone ahead and gotten 14 replacement windows for my house to replace the old single pane windows.
My question is about caulking. Every tube of caulk I picked up in Home Depot says not to use it below 40 F. Well, it's only 25 out now, so what can I use. Is there a caulk that's ok to use below 40?
Thanks

Did you have bad luck with HD...or the windows? If it was the windows, were they the American Craftsman windows? What happened to them?
I've installed three AC windows over the summer, and have been pleased with them so far. The install was easy...and they work just fine. I know they are not the best replacement windows around. But, they seem to be well constructed and carry a lifetime warranty.
Thanks for the tip on finding caulk...I'll check into it tomorrow.

Hi Scott,ordered my windows through home depot in ontario can.Ordered them in August with clear glass, they show up in end of sept with grills in them shipped back reorder,The new onees show up in first wk of nov. tell me that it has one glass cracked tell me to go ahead and install will repair when lgass comes in(ordered that wk).After inspection noticed one frame was warped,both openers facing same direction not ordered that way,called manager of that division said he would reorderor give me an adjustment which i took instead of waiting for another 4 to 5 weeks.My feeling was that they did not give a damn about the customer,they jerked me around each telling me a different story,am still waiting to get the glass installed.By the way these windows are made by Farly windows in Presscot i think.Tom

Sorry you had such trouble. It took 12 days to get my windows in. There were 9 special order ones, and 5 standard size, in-stock windows. All the windows are standard size, but they are not all stocked at HD. Anyhow, 8 had the grilles in them, the rest did not. Everything was correct....I was kinda suprised.
I got some caulk from a local siding store....good to 0F. Got 6 windows installed yesterday.
Thanks for the help, Scott

you should be using silicone instead of caulking.

Go to a siding supply store. I use Geo Seal. Good low temp caulk. Tools easier than silicone and sticks to a much wider variety of materials than silicone. It can be painted with some prep (acetone I believe)
