50 Years of Service

Stebnitz Builders is proud to be celebrating 50 years of service to Walworth and surrounding counties. Founded by Stan Stebnitz in 1972, original projects were limited to general carpentry work and the occasional addition. With the help of Stan’s three sons, Dave, Gary and Dan, the company grew and was recognized for its quality and integrity.

COMMITMENT through and through

“The three key principles my father committed to from the beginning resonate within our team today,” said Dan Stebnitz, Production Advisor and Estimator for the company.  “Always do what’s right, provide service like you expect to be served and NEVER walk-away from a project.”

In 1985, the brothers approached their dad and purchased the business.  They wasted no time implementing their growth plans which began with a new headquarters in Delavan and an expansion of their service offerings.  They also added key members to the team to further enhance the client experience, which was so important to each of them.

The tradition of family ownership and involvement continued when Dave’s son, Chris Stebnitz, purchased the business in 2005 and became the company’s third-generation owner. “Our team culture has the same goals today, to ensure our clients are well-served now and in the years to come,” Chris said. “That approach is something that’s critically important to our team and the family name.  It’s a focus that will allow this company to continue my grandfather’s legacy by serving Walworth County for another 50 years.”

In an effort to be more easily accessible to their clients and allow for continued growth,

Stebnitz Builders moved from their headquarters in Delavan to the hub of Walworth County at the interchange of highways 43 and 67. Their new location, 204 Commerce Court in Elkhorn, provides an easier access for clients traveling from anywhere in the county.


Great designs and quality results are a time-proven standard at Stebnitz Builders. But, today, their focus has broadened, embracing 21st century technology to enhance the client experience.  Communication, visually and verbally, with the use of tomorrow’s technology is taking the client experience to a whole new level.

Collaborating through Houzz, 3-D design and virtual walk-throughs allow their clients to truly experience their renovated space before it even begins.  An expansive presence on the internet, including social media sites, homeowner reference sites and a comprehensive website allow homeowners to gather great information about Stebnitz Builders and the plethora of products and materials they may be considering for their project.

The company culture at Stebnitz Builders encourages regular client communication. Their team of consultants, production managers, carpenters and office staff all pride themselves on proactive and responsive communication.

“Our clients want and deserve to be in-the-know.  Remodeling can be a scary and invasive process; our level of regular communication and availability make us a 24-7 home advisor and information funnel for our clients and homeowners.  Phone, text, e-mail, go-to-meetings, messenger, and face-time, just to name a few, make us reachable and accessible,” said Chris Stebnitz


Delivering great client service and an exceptional client experience is evident by the many accolades and awards they’ve received.  One such measurement is the use of Guild Quality, a third-party survey firm who contacts clients after project completion for an in-depth, detailed survey/report about their remodeling experience.  Those most recent results are constantly updated and accessible for all to see.
