About Us

Get to know our company.

We’ve grown into an internationally recognized consulting firm.

WeatherTech Consulting Group, Inc. was established in 1982. In 1998, the company underwent a critical expansion with the addition of Geoffrey Garabedian, formally the President and Director of R&D for Tri-Ply, a business unit of GAF Corporation. Also, in 1998, Andrea Garabedian joined the firm as Principal. Mrs. Garabedian went on to serve as the Treasurer and Vice President of Operations. In 1999, WeatherTech expanded again with the acquisition of Burtech Incorporated, a major roofing and waterproofing consulting firm providing services in the southwest United States. In 2001, Mr. Garabedian became a Principal and served greatly as President and CEO. He also served as President of the Great Lakes Chapter for Roof Consultants Institute in the 2005-06 year. Although he is no longer with us, the spirit of Geof lives on through our company’s mission and dedication to the industry. On December 31, 2021, Mrs. Garabedian retired from WeatherTech Consulting Group, Inc. and the company is now owned by Ann Crippen.
