Many exterior update companies come and go, but Weather Tight has become a household name in Southeastern Wisconsin. Many folks know us from our Tod & Todd’s Home Improvement Tips video series, but we’re also known for our unparalleled reputation in customer service and quality.
Here’s how Weather Tight has stayed in business since 1986, with over 34,000 installations in our service area. As an employee-owned company, we plan to be around for at LEAST another 37 years to serve the Greater Milwaukee area and beyond.
How Weather Tight Began
In 1986, Tod Colbert was working for a window installation company that closed. He realized that with his experience and passion for exterior remodeling, he could start his own company, and Weather Tight was born. In 1990, Todd Schulz joined, bringing his sales management experience to the team. Soon he became Vice President, and the company continued to grow.
It wasn’t long before Wisconsinites noticed that Weather Tight’s reputation for excellence was something truly unique. Around Southeastern Wisconsin, Weather Tight became the Most Recommended Home Remodeler, known for honesty, fairness, and reliability.
With such a fantastic rapport, Tod & Todd became the faces of Weather Tight. Their beloved ad series, Tod & Todd’s Home Improvement Tips, educated homeowners with their knowledge as well as showcased their fun, approachable nature. People felt they knew Tod & Todd because they were their Wisconsin neighbors.
Weather Tight was family-owned and operated. Tod and Todd understood the importance of employee investment in a company’s success. When employees are stakeholders, the company thrives. Knowing that they wanted to continue Weather Tight for years to come, Weather Tight adopted an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan), giving employees a vested interest in the future of Weather Tight.
As we approach our 37th birthday as a company, with over 100 employees strong and a gorgeous West Allis showroom, we pause to reflect on what got us here.
Earlier this year, our beloved Todd Schultz passed away after a brave battle with cancer. He was a great example of leadership and integrity to all of us. He led with humor and a positive approach that we will miss as his legacy and memories live on.
Tod Colbert continues at the helm, along with his employee-owners, with the reassurance that Weather Tight will keep growing and thriving under employee ownership. We know it’s a rarity for a company to survive this long in the contracting world, but Weather Tight continues as a model of how to run an exterior update company with honesty, fairness, and foresight.
Award Winning Service and Beautiful Home Renovations
What makes Weather Tight different? Because we’re employee-owned, our team runs like a well-oiled machine (as Todd was fond of pointing out). But we never rest on our laurels. We keep working towards offering more in terms of customer satisfaction.
We’ve won many awards, it’s true, but we don’t see the awards as the “prize.” The actual prize is repeat business and recommendations from our customers. When we win awards like the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Ethics (twice!), we see it as confirmation that we’re continuously moving in the right direction.

Of course, a home remodeling company is only as good as its products. We partner with some of the best vendors in the business to ensure our installations are of the highest quality. We also offer a vast array of styles and finishes because we know that something as personal as your home should be unique and fit your style.
Our offerings include windows, doors, sliding doors, siding, roofing, soffit, fascia, and our latest product line, replacement bathtubs and showers. We ensure your home renovations last with durable, reliable product lines and trustworthy installation teams.
Our team works with you on every step of the installation. We’ll help you determine the best products and updates for your situation. We’ll review all the available finishes (and show you examples, including those in our showroom). We’ll help you brainstorm design ideas and offer transparency during the installation process.
We offer some of the best warranties in the business. So, whenever you work with Weather Tight, you can rest assured that your investment is sound. You’ll increase the comfort and value of your home and get that all-important curb appeal you dream of.
