Terry and his family are also faithful members of the Heartland Christian Center in Valparaiso where Terry serves on the Board. Terry truly feels his life is blessed with his wonderful, close-knit, supportive family, his great friends, his church, and of course the opportunity Christ has given him and his wife, Julie, to have Terry's Discount Windows & More. Terry's personal message to his potential customers would be, “It would be an honor to have you as our customer!”

After spending the past 4 years with 2 Illinois based home renewal companies his desire was to come home and work for a local-based company.

As a homeowner myself, I expect the same things you do, quality products and installation from a company you can be confident in, at a feel good price.”
In addition, Ron stated, “Buying local supports Indiana residents and companies. While Illinois based companies commercials are on our TV all the time, it’s important to keep our hard earned money in Indiana.
