A Homestead, homegrown.

Wisconsin is home to many longstanding family-owned businesses, family trades, & traditions with one of the most well-known associations to our good, old piece of land here in the mid-west, rests on the prodigiously broad shoulders of farms.

Here in the “Dairy State”- our expansive acreage is often referred to as ‘ back country’ or ‘the back 40’. For those who don’t know, according to Wiktionary- ‘the back 40’ is a term that was coined sometime in the 1860’s during the ‘Homestead Acts.’ “The back 40” is indicative of  the ‘back side of the farm’- which refers to portions of owned acreage granted to farmers.

Here at Weather Tight, we are like family.  And when one of our own is going through hard times- we all rally together to help.

Hannah- one of our Service Writers- has been open about her fight against Breast Cancer. If you are a customer of our and have needed service on your product you may of spoken with her as she is a member of the service team.  She cares deeply about her job, she cares about her health, she cares about her children, and she works very hard.

Hannah is recently undergoing treatment for her cancer & even with insurance—deductibles, fees, time off work, and raising a family- can cause financial burdens that no one should ever have to deal with. Tod & Todd—and the rest of Weather Tight—want to stand next to Hannah as she continues to fight to kick cancers butt! We will be holding a benefit at Weather Tight on September 23rd (Saturday) from 12-5. All are welcomed & we are expecting a good turnout and a fun event.  If you know anyone who would like to make a raffle or silent auction donation- they can contact Erin (erin@weathertightcorp.com). Any & all donations are welcomed & we appreciate any businesses that want to pitch in for an amazing woman & cause.

Weather Tight has also set up a GoFundMe.com page for Hannah. Monetary donations can be made there as well.

Customization is the key.

I can’t think of a singular reason in the world that the products you put in or on your home- should be any LESS customizable to our lives than the clothes we wear. Your roof should complement your home like your hairstyle compliments the shape of your face. Your siding should fit like a good pair of worn in shoes. We seek the things that have duality, things that work in more ways than one while still providing a security within ourselves to feel confident about it.

Gleaning The Torch. An Award of Ethics.

I find this quote to be profoundly unvarnished. Simple in its message. The void is illusive. It creates an invisible divide between one’s self & our visions. The only chance we stand to encompass our dreams of success, is to understand all things are attainable. It will all depend on dedication, determination, & the valor we use to battle our way to the front of lines with. You don’t meet many people who can say, “I could, so I did.” Oh Contraire- I know about 130 people personally, who can & did. This lead me to the very reason in which I have found inspiration to share with you some insight on those very people, their dreams, their successes & their personal accounts.

Should you invest in Diamond Kote® siding? Indubitably! Let us tell you why.

It is spring in Wisconsin.. well.. sort of. I am starting to think Mother Nature went AWOL. However- we know that in due time the grass will start to brighten, displaying lush hues of striking emerald. We will find ourselves able to enjoy those lazy sun-drenched afternoons – accompanied by the unambiguous aroma of a charcoal barbecue. Everything that winter left barren & achromatic will come alive & I think we all deserve to catch up on our depleted levels of vitamin D! 🙂

Matterhorn Metal Roofing- The experts on top!

Metal roofing has taken the exterior remodeling world by storm. This relatively new product is one that is innovative, eco-friendly, & reliable, while offering appreciable versatility. Now, if you are like me, I am a little tight on the checkbook. Sometimes I need a little (ok a lot) of convincing to justify spending a pretty penny on anything. I know, I know- talking about purchasing a new roof for our home can trigger a slight panic where our brain starts rapid firing S.O.S distress signals! On the contrary- a metal roof will not only provide you an unmatched appeal, it also won’t cost you a fortune!
