If you had a giant hole in the side of your house, you’d fix it right away, right? That’s not a problem you can just ignore.

Then why haven’t you repaired your drafty windows and doors? Or replaced them completely?

All of the tiny cracks letting in cold air add up to a massive hole, but since they’re spread out, you don’t see it that way. Your utility bills are probably higher than they should be and you have to put on thick socks and two sweaters even though you’re inside your house.

There are a million DIY tips on the internet on how to make your house less drafty – but the best way is replacement windows or a new door installation.

Whether you’re selling your house soon or you’re there to stay, new windows are going to add a lot of value to your home. Homebuyers are looking for new windows and doors, but you can make your life a little more comfortable too!

With 30 years of experience and manufacturer certified teams right here in St. Louis, Solomon Contracting is the right choice to fix that giant hole in your house, one window and door installation at a time.



  • Do you have high energy bills?

On a cold day, stand next to your windows in short sleeves. Does it feel a little chilly? What a waste of warm air from your furnace! As the temperature drops in the winter, your heating bill probably skyrockets to compensate for all of the warm air leaving through your windows.

  • Are your windows difficult to open?

If your windows won’t open at all or it’s always a struggle, that’s not only inconvenient, it can be a safety concern. You don’t want to be in a situation where you need a window to open quickly, but it won’t. Windows should open and close effortlessly.

  • Are the frames decaying or leaking?

If you have wooden window frames, they can warp if they’re exposed to moisture. This can make it more difficult for you to open and close the windows, but moisture damage can cause more serious decay down the road like mold and mildew.

  • Can you hear everything that happens outside?

The best energy efficient windows will absorb sound waves from outside before they get inside your home. If you have a lot of road noise going by, you can make your home a little more peaceful with new windows.

  • Is there a lot of condensation on your windows?

Do you regularly see fog or condensation building up on your household windows? If the condensation is between the two panes of glass in your windows, your window seals have failed and it’s time to replace them before they leak too much.



  • Can you feel a draft near the door?

The seals around the door age just as the door itself does, and when they do, they shrink and crack – welcoming in the cold air outside. If it isn’t the cold draft that makes you shiver, your energy bill certainly is.

  • Can you see cracks in the door?

Besides giving bugs and drafts a warm welcome into your home, cracks can be a sign that the door is structurally weak, which can be a serious safety concern.

  • Is there moisture building up on the window?

Condensation build-up between the panes of glass in your door is more than an annoyance; if you have a wood door, the moisture can lead to health concerns in the form of mold and mildew.

  • Is sneaking out impossible because of squeaky hinges?

As door hinges wear down, the sound they make could very well be your door saying, “it’s time to replace me.” From both a functional and security point of view, squeaky hinges serve as a warning signal.

  • Do you have scrapes on your floor?

When old doors warp and sag, they are not only difficult to open and shut properly, they damage your floor as the bottom of the door scrapes across your floor’s surface.
