Halloween is almost here and many St. Louis homes are decorated for the holiday or the entire fall season. You may have noticed some of your more ambitious neighbors have enhanced their annual decoration choices with brighter, bolder and larger options. But here’s an idea for truly enhancing the look of your home year round with a value added element as well: Let’s look at the condition of your current windows and doors.

Your first review may be based on appearance alone. Do they look attractive? Do you still like the design after all these years? Do you notice obvious signs of aging? Next let’s look at the function of your windows and doors. They do serve a purpose besides opening and closing, right? Are they operating properly? Is it the same level of performance that you expect? Beyond how they look and how smoothly they open and close, there’s an even more important aspect to windows and doors in your St. Louis home. It’s their ability to provide an energ-efficient barrier between interior and exterior climates. This is a significant responsibility, especially noticeable in the fall months when daytime and nighttime temperatures are dropping. The record high in St. Louis for November 1 is 86 degrees, set back in 1937. Yet the normal high for the start of the month here is more than 20 degrees lower and our typical overnight lows will drop from the mid-40’s to the freezing mark over a 4-week period. That quick chill that arrives in November means that now is an ideal time to get an accurate evaluation of how well your windows and doors are protecting your home and your monthly budget for maintaining a comfortable climate inside.
