Weather Tight Is Becoming an Employee-Owned Company!

Weather Tight Corporation is an integral part of our community. From becoming the Official Home Remodeler of the Milwaukee Bucks to our work throughout Wisconsin for over 30 years, we’re your neighbors, family, and friends.

When our business undergoes changes, we feel it’s important to share the news with our customers. That’s why we’re excited and proud to announce that Weather Tight is becoming an Employee-Owned Company. We’re officially setting up an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).

Now you’re probably thinking that’s great news for Weather Tight employees, but how does this affect the community? Even more so, how does Weather Tight becoming an employee-owned company affect customers and homeowners?

What is an ESOP?

In short, providing an ESOP allows employees to earn company stock during their employment. Holding stock means employees actually become owners of Weather Tight as their stock in the company grows during their years of employment. This provides Weather Tight with a succession plan to ensure the company continues to grow and thrive well into the future.

Our current owners, Todd and Tod, aren’t handing off the reigns completely and sailing away into retirement tomorrow (or any time soon), however. One of the great benefits of Weather Tight becoming an employee-owned company is it still allows Todd and Tod to lead and oversee the company for years to come. It simply ensures that when the time comes for them to slowly pass the torch and enjoy those retirement years, the great company culture of Weather Tight will stay safely in place, providing excellent customer service for years to come.

Weather Tight becoming an employee-owned company and offering an ESOP will provide employees with a growing retirement vehicle. It offers a great incentive for our current employees to stay with the company for the long term and an excellent benefit to attract new employees as well. It means the company’s success pays off for each team member.

The Benefits to YOU of Weather Tight Becoming an Employee-Owned Company

The big question is, how will this affect our customers and what is the benefit to you? After all, without the support of the Wisconsin community, Weather Tight wouldn’t exist, company-owned or otherwise.

Weather Tight becoming an employee-owned company is very positive for our community and our customers. In fact, it will benefit our customers in several surprising and exciting ways.

There are many excellent companies and household names that are employee-owned. You may be familiar with Gore-Tex, Morgan Stanley, Southwest Airlines, P&G, and SAIC–all well-known employee-owned companies. In fact, there are over 7000 ESOPs since the concept was established in 1974, putting Weather Tight in great company with…well many great companies!

Offering an ESOP pays off for everyone involved (including the customer). Studies show employee ownership has a positive effect on the bottom line; it’s true and for good reasons:

  • ESOP companies vs. non-ESOP companies show a 4% higher productivity rate.
  • In all studies, offering ESOPs increase a company’s performance.

You see, when employees become owners, they’re directly invested in a company’s success; their benefits increase when the company does well. Because of the draw of an ESOP, the company is able to attract top talent and continue to retain the best employees. Those employees are driven to perform because they know when the company does well, they also do well. And all that success and financial well-being is passed to the surrounding community.

Being an employee-owned company adds up to safer and more pleasant work environments. Employees become more conscious of waste and have a personal stake in getting a job completed on budget, on time, and efficiently.

Employees gain a voice and a say in the operations of the company. They can share in what’s working at a company and what isn’t and can pass on customer concerns to management. When employees are co-owners, their input is vital.

The ultimate outcome of Weather Tight becoming an employee-owned company is even better customer service for YOU!

Now, at Weather Tight, we already pride ourselves on providing superior service and added value to our customers. We go above and beyond to complete each job in a timely manner that leaves our customers delighted. We like to think the benefits of Weather Tight becoming an employee-owned company are just the icing on what’s already an excellent cake.

We’re proud to share this exciting company news with our customers!

If you would like to learn more about any of our services, please drop us a line. We also invite you to visit our West Allis showroom. Our customer representatives look forward to continued service to our friends, neighbors, and family here in Wisconsin. If you are interested in joining our Weather Tight team, we also have our job postings available on our website. We would love to add to our Employee Owned organization.

When is the Right Time to Replace Old Windows?

Is it time to replace old windows in your home? Not only do new windows add beauty and value to your home, they also increase safety, security, and energy efficiency. There are few better investments than beautiful new windows for your house. If you’re wondering when to replace old windows, here are some questions to consider:

  • Are your windows stylish, up-to-date, and in excellent condition?
  • Do your windows ventilate air properly (but remain airtight when closed)?
  • Do your windows open and close smoothly, without extra effort?
  • Are your windows accessible and easy to clean?

If you answered no to any of these questions, then chances are you’re not completely satisfied with the current windows in your house. If it’s time to replace old windows, we’re here to help.

With over 30 years of experience in the window business, the window experts at Weather Tight know how to help you through every step of window replacement. Our high-quality products, smooth installation, and phenomenal customer service are guaranteed to make you extremely happy with your decision to upgrade and replace old windows within your home.

 

Time to Replace Old Windows in a West Allis Bungalow

Weather Tight recently worked on a 75-year-old bungalow-style house in West Allis. This was a perfect example of a home desperately in need of brand new windows. Typical of the age and style, the home featured a large picture window with two surrounding double-hung windows. While the look of the windows fit the home, the old windows had presented several issues for the homeowners.

One of the main issues was air infiltration in the winter from the leaky windows. We all know Wisconsin winters mean drafty windows and cold air leaks. As is often the case, the homeowners saw condensation in between the panes of glass in the windows. This condensation was a sure sign that air and moisture were making their way inside the bungalow.

Like many Wisconsin homeowners, these folks relied on plastic shrink wrap covering their windows, as an attempt to solve their leaky window problem. This temporary winter window fix is common but leaves residents with more disruption than satisfaction. The unsightly plastic wrap on windows is hard to apply and rarely creates a tight seal. The plastic blocks outside views, sun exposure, and warmth.

Perhaps the most frustrating part of this annoying eyesore is that the plastic wrap on the windows must be replaced every season (so windows can be cleaned and opened in the summer months). This means more wrestling with a blow dryer and double-sided tape for a winter window solution that’s both ugly and ineffective. Not to mention the damage double-stick tape can do to beautiful woodwork. When we arrived at the bungalow, we could see it was definitely time to replace old windows and improve everyday life for this family.

Weather Tight experts quickly identified ventilation as the biggest issue in this case. As indicated by the moisture in between the panes, as well as the drafts, air was getting in despite the homeowner’s best efforts. The smartest option was to replace the old windows with three beautiful new double-hung windows. The new windows blended perfectly with the historic style of the home, increasing curb appeal and adding value to the property.

Best of all, the new windows allowed the homeowners to better control the temperature of their space all year long. No more drafty Wisconsin winters, plus great cooling airflow during the dog days of summer! Installing windows with double ventilation capabilities, from both the top and bottom, was the best fit for this home and would serve the client for years to come.

With so many window options out there, window selection may seem overwhelming. Trust experts familiar with the unique needs of Wisconsin homeowners so you can find the perfect replacement windows for your house. You want the highest quality windows to beautify and protect your home, but to also fit the look and style of your property.

Protecting Woodwork During Window Installation

With this West Allis home, the right window installation process was particularly important, especially due to the special woodwork surrounding their windows. As is the case with many of the beautiful bungalows, flats, and cottages here in Milwaukee, the craftsmanship is second to none. Preserving woodwork and brickwork is an important part of the window replacement process.

Due to Weather Tight’s experience with the historic and beautiful architecture of Milwaukee homes, we know how to protect craftsman features. We ensure our new windows enhance the look and function of the home rather than detract. The result is seamless, efficient, and a strong improvement that compliments the craftsmanship.

For our West Allis bungalow windows, we decided on a pocket install for the new window installation. Pocket install is a simple process in which the existing window frame is left intact. New windows are measured to fit within the given space perfectly. This procedure leaves the wood trim and features untouched and preserves the finish.

New Windows Vent in the Summer and Stop Drafts in the Winter

Another big concern for our West Allis family was the fact that their old windows didn’t open easily to let in the fresh air.

Older windows become sticky and stubborn. As the seal and pane erode over time, the window shifts and no longer opens with ease. Often the glass either becomes loose in the pane or the window requires brute force to open. The result is a window that’s tough, loud, and frustrating. Wrestling to open the window is more trouble than it’s worth, and of course, windows that won’t open (or feature loose glass) are a major safety concern.

The double hung replacement windows selected for the bungalow open with ease. These new windows feature screens, which provide ventilation from both sides. In the summertime, a natural breeze will easily flow into the house, giving it an open, airy feel. Of course, the screens efficiently block any outside bugs and serve as a protective shield for the room without sacrificing any airflow.

While cool breeze in the summer is important, it’s also important to protect against drafts and heat loss in the winter. After a careful installation and a lot of precision, the new windows are insulated around the edges to ensure all surfaces are airtight. Using the latest in window sealing and insulation technology, Weather Tight windows ensure there’s no cold airflow in the wintertime. Our windows are equipped with a maintenance-free exterior and fuel-efficient glass.

Fuel-efficient glass is important for many different reasons. According to the Department of Energy, it’s imperative to replace old windows with energy efficient glass because of the significant impact on both heat gain and heat loss throughout your home. Windows are accountable for 25% to 30% of the temperature energy. Replacing old windows with new energy-efficient windows with fuel-efficient glass will result in a lower heating and energy bill.

Beautiful Replacement Windows & Happy Customers

The last part of the window replacement process is installing brand new trim on the outside area surrounding the new windows. We take a great deal of pride in the appearance of our windows, always adding top-quality aluminum trim to finish.
