Sales Manager

Lifetime Building Products

Construction industry

May 1992 – May 1999 (7 years 1 month)

To Whom It May Concern: James D. Weaver (Jim) was employed by LIFETIME BUILDING PRODUCTS in Greeley, Colorado during the years 1992 thru 1999. He distinguished himself in sales during that time with annual sales in excess of one million dollars in his first year and every year after. Jim took a big part in our company’s advertising strategies. I credited him with saving the company plenty of money by watching the individual performance results of each marketing effort, and by repeating our successful efforts while stopping our advertising losers. Jim’s in-home sales presentation is thorough and polished. He listens carefully, makes notes on things which are important to his customer and comes back to address customer-specific needs. During my absence Jim could step in and handle the management duties associated with the duties of sales manager or the duties of expediter. I will be pleased to accept a phone call from you at any time to answer any question you might have that I have not addressed here.

“In the summer of 2008 we contracted with Jim’s company for a major exterior remodel of our residence. During the initial interview, Jim took the necessary time to present us with the various options available to us and to recommend cost-effective alternatives to our original material specifications. This interview with Jim persuaded us that his proposal was the right way to go, so we canceled all of our remaining RFP’s and engaged Brennan Enterprises to perform the work. Once he had landed the sale, Jim didn’t simply disappear and move on to the next prospect. He remained in continuous contact with us to ensure that the work was progressing to our satisfaction. He went out of his way to fully acquaint us with all pertinent details of a major change order made necessary by the discovery of a structural deficiency in our home. The finished work was of the highest quality, was performed expeditiously, and conformed in every respect with Jim’s initial representations to us. My wife and I are delighted to recommend Jim Weaver as a point of contact with any contracting company he may choose to represent.” June 14, 2009

“Jim is one of the most professional and hardworking businessman I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He is also part of my immediate family and has been my sister’s fiance’ and has been for 3 years. When my father died in 2007 Jim dedicated his time and to save my family’s inheritance. He sub-contracted repairs and personally refurbished our family’s old house using his own resources and often his own money. After the initial crime scene investigation was concluded and the house was cleared for re-entry, Jim almost single-handedly saved my sisters and I thousands of dollars with good business practices. I will always be grateful to Mr. Jim Weaver for his knowledge, kindness, and honesty. When we conceded partial control of the estate to his control; every dollar spent saved us two fold in the end. I will always recommend Mr. Weaver as a businessman, associate, and as a friend to anyone who needs his expertise in home restoration.” October 22, 2008

“I guess the thing that impressed me the most about Mr. Weaver is that when he first came to my house to give me an estimate, was that instead of extolling the benefits of using him and the company he represented first, he spent the time and interest in finding out just what it was that I wanted!! Only after he had taken the time to understand fully just what it was that I was looking for, did he then make suggestions to me to fulfill just what it was that I wanted. By doing this, he impressed me and gave me the feeling of being able to TRUST a “salesman”. How refreshing that was! Mr. Weaver is quite personable, and definitely made me feel that he is honest and can be trusted to do what he said he would do and when he would do it. I WILL contact Jim the next time I need any maintenance work done on my home first to if they do whatever it is that I need. Tom Dragoo” September 1, 2008

To Whom It Concerns,

I am writing regarding a long-time friend and colleague of mine, Jim Weaver.  While this communication comes upon request from Jim, I am more than pleased to write it as Jim has been both a productive employee of mine and trusted ally in our industry.

I opened Precision Siding & Construction in the 1980s, modestly starting in outreaches of Colorado not serviced by the big companies of the Denver metro area.  Since then, Precision has become the big company – not only in the Denver metro area, but in 14 Western states.

I am happy to report that Jim has played a significant role in that growth over the last couple of decades.  Jim has served two tenures here at Precision, and on both occasions, he has shown an exemplary performance record as an in-home sales professional.

Jim is what I like to refer to as a student of our industry.  His ability to adapt and grow in a rapidly-changing environment represents a major key to his success over the years.  Additionally, Jim has been integral in developing new approaches to the direct-sales arena and finding new and creative methodologies for converting finite supplies of leads into quality sales.

Personally, I have known Jim for many years and it was my pleasure to have him under my employ.  He is a positive individual and a forward-thinker.   As times have changed over the years, I always knew Jim was a guy I could rely on for consistency and diligence in his work.

If I may be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at the company at 303.289.7952.

Best Regards,

Jeff Woodward,
President & CEO,
Precision Siding & Construction

Home Replacement Windows: What’s Your R-Value?

Posted: 15 Dec 2009 04:37 PM PST

Today, everyone from President Obama to Green Building Advisor Martin Holladay is talking windows – those that save money and save energy.

At a Home Depot store in Virginia, Obama explained how retrofitting buildings and investing in “energy-efficient windows and doors” is the biggest bang for the buck for economic growth, environmental initiatives and energy efficiency.

Martin posted a fantastic summary and is leading a great discussion on Windows That Perform Better Than Walls.

His technical explanations dive deep into the relationships and qualities of insulation values (R-value or U-value) and solar gain and a concept that we specialize in, and the critical art of directional “tuning” glass values based on a building’s position in relation to the sun. He discusses different standards such as Canada’s ER (Energy Rating) method and Passive House – one specifically that emphasizes the fine balance of solar energy gains and losses, super-insulation, advanced window technology, air tightness, and ventilation. Read more about Passive House here.

It is pretty simple. This chart details the amount of money you can save replacing your home’s old single pane windows (an R-value of 1.0) with other windows on the market. Super-insulating windows of higher R-values can help you save the highest percentage of heating and cooling costs when compared to other “energy-saving” windows available today.  Even compared to typical Energy Star windows (they are usually dual pane low-e windows with an insulating value of R-2.5 to R-2.8 depending on geography).

The data for this chart is based on the U.S. Department of Energy’s RESFEN model and is an average taken from 5 typical cities across the U.S.:
