In 1986, Tod Colbert opened Weather Tight Milwaukee, putting his focus, unlike many home-improvement outfits, on bolstering homes' exteriors to improve the living conditions inside. More than a quarter of a century later, the company has helped more than 15,000 clients, and Colbert's concept is still going strong. Clients can replace regular windows with energy-efficient panes that stave off extreme temperatures with multiple layers of reflective coating. The company’s capable technicians can also install doors insulated with polyurethane foam, and roofing that resists ice to keep frozen slabs from sliding off the roof and denting cars or bullying helpless recycling bins.

Albatross Roofing started with an old truck, a few rusty tools, and a single employee. More than three decades later, the company has shaken off that early rust and expanded to a team of five licensed and certified roofers. During complimentary inspections, these roofers scale houses and search for damage from the likes of rot, floods, and Santa's sledding cleats. After providing homeowners with an estimate, they can use GAF roofing products to install new asphalt shingles or completely tear off and replace a roof.
