Wisconsin’s winters are not for the faint of heart. December to February daytime temperatures rarely rise above 30 degrees Fahrenheit. We average 40 inches of snowfall in the south and as much as 160 inches up north in the Lake Superior Snowbelt. January is the coldest month; our overnight temperatures average about 13 degrees Fahrenheit.

Our window installers will take great caution when installing your windows during the winter to help retain the warmth inside your home and minimize outside exposure. We will carefully work on one window or area at a time while sealing off the rest of your house to make sure any cold air doesn’t carry throughout your entire home during the installation process. Our window installation process may take longer when performed during the winter, but the outcome is worth it.
However, some winter conditions can affect the quality of the installation. Any weather below 15 degrees isn’t ideal for installing windows. Anything zero or below and the caulk won’t set properly. So, while we can install your new windows during the winter months, we want to make sure we work in the proper conditions to ensure you receive the best quality of work possible.
Because they are extraordinarily energy-efficient, vinyl windows are terrific for Wisconsin. A lot depends on the type of visibility you prefer and which direction your windows face — if they are exposed to more inclement weather or sunshine. Zen Windows Milwaukee thermal windows provide additional protection and energy efficiency.
When it comes to insulation, casement and double-hung windows might be the best choice. Casement windows have fewer openings and no sash. And don’t let the weather be a deciding factor if you want a picture window! With double- or triple-pane insulated glass and the added protection of Zen Windows professional installation, you can enjoy the winter wonderland from almost any room in your house. Our thermal windows use special gases between panes for additional insulation:
