Caulking project

Several years ago I built my on house. I went and glazed 10 sliding glass
door replacement panels into some frame work. Now its time to think about
caulking them. The only problem is I live in Michigan. The tube says do not use when the temperature is below 40 F. Is this a problem. Do contractors wait until the weather brake before using caulk. I guess i could wait until
spring, but id rather get it done before the oil prices go up another cent.

There's some warmer weather ahead, just do the job around 9:00 or 10:00 so it can stay warm most of the day as it sets up. As long as it's above freezing, you should be OK.
