About Us

We’re a Michigan outfit, all the way.

WeatherGard® is a local, family-owned company. Our main offices and factory are on Chesley Dr in Farmington, and we have a second office location in Grand Rapids.

Our Roots

Wyoming Ave., Detroit MI
Our first factory and office location, on Lyndon St., off of Wyoming Ave., in Detroit. We began here in 1989.

Our story began in 1988, when founder Albert Ben-Ezra began designing and building windows. He invested in advanced machinery in our first factory, on Lyndon St. in Detroit (shown above), to become the first company in Michigan to offer a fully welded vinyl window. Everything was cleaned and assembled by hand, with emphasis on quality and customer satisfaction.

Over the next thirty years, WeatherGard grew quickly. Albert’s children - Elsy, Toby, and Shlome - took on core management roles. Customers from across the state wanted WeatherGard products in their homes. To meet demand, our factory had to be moved and expanded three times. Our team grew to include over a hundred factory workers, product installers, and office personnel in Southeast and West Michigan.

Oak Park location
Our Southeast Michigan offices and factory, on 8 Mile Road.

Although the company has changed through the years, our commitment to quality and to our customers has always been at the heart of everything we do. We are continuing to improve our product lines and launch new ones to bring homeowners new and better options every year.
