It’s that time of year when the weather gets cooler and we start thinking about winterizing our homes. Generally, we shore up the loose ends in our homes to preserve the heat and keep the cold at bay. The most effective way to do this is to make sure that you have proper windows that are designed to be energy efficient. After all, the more heat they keep in, the less power you have to use to heat your home.
Terry’s Discount Windows & More specializes in this effort and makes sure that they hire only the best. Currently, their Office Manager, Billy Atherton, is one such individual.
Atherton has been at Terry’s for seven months now, but he was working at Menard’s helping customers with their bathroom remodeling when he had a chance encounter with Terry’s Discount Windows owners, Terry and Julie Keelen.
“I helped Terry and Julie with a bathroom remodel,” Atherton reminisced. “A couple of weeks later, Terry came back in and asked if I’d be interested in working for him. I came in to interview and during the interview, I absolutely loved it.”
Atherton definitely made an impression upon the Keelen's as well.
Atherton grew up in Chesterton and graduated from Chesterton High School in 2013. Leaving behind his family, including a younger sister, he recently moved to Valparaiso three months ago and loves it.
“I love Valpo, I absolutely love it,” said Atherton. “There’s so much to do. The downtown is absolutely beautiful.”
Working at Terry’s has been very rewarding for Atherton, and he enjoys many aspects of his job, but he does have a few favorites.
“I love working with the customers,” Atherton said. “Terry and Julie are really great to work for, and they treat us well. But I really love seeing the before and after pictures. That’s really satisfying. It’s amazing how something as simple as new siding can make the house look like a completely different home.”
Indeed, now that Atherton has become Office Manager, he oversees the ordering of windows, scheduling of installation, and making sure services are scheduled and taken care of, among other duties. It seems that with Atherton on the job, Terry’s discount Windows & More has an even brighter future in store for them.
