Chris Stebnitz – Owner


Chris Stebnitz is proud to be a third-generation owner of the company his grandfather started and his father and uncles grew for nearly 40 years. Stebnitz Builders is a full-service residential remodeling and design firm located in the greater Walworth County area.

Stebnitz Builders’ focus is to be the very best listening company, translating into a wonderful experience for their clients and a project completed to its highest standards with the greatest rewards for their clients and business partners. In 2009, Stebnitz Builders was ranked #69 in the nation and #3 in Wisconsin for Full-Service Remodeling Contractors by Remodeling Magazine.

In 2010, they celebrated their 40th year in business and in 2013 opened a gorgeous new office and showroom in Elkhorn, WI.

Stebnitz family Packer games are a great tradition!

Since the time my grandfather founded the company, throughout the years my father and uncles grew the business, we have maintained the same focus on every project – to provide a remarkable experience for our clients. Whether the project is a simple window replacement or a complex whole house remodel project, the constant has always been the client’s experience, regardless of the project size or scope.”

I am blessed to be married to my best friend


Chris is married to his wife, and best friend, Jill for 19 years (2015). They have three great boys, Sam (16), Mason (14) and Grady (12). Jill is a 3rd grade teacher at Jackson Elementary School in Elkhorn.

With active boys involved in sports, Chris spends a great deal of time coaching or helping out with several of their teams, including baseball, football and basketball.

A 1989 graduate of Delavan-Darien High School, Chris attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point for three years before receiving his journalism degree from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 1995.

Chris has been very active in music since high school, playing with the UWSP Jazz Band, playing 12 years with the End of The Line band, participating in the Praise Band at the church he attends, the First Baptist Church in Delavan, singing with and serving on the board of the Southern Lakes Masterpiece Chorale, playing saxophone with blues singer and guitarist, Glenn Davis and most recently adding music to the entertainment value of the Elkhorn Area High School Varsity basketball games as the House DJ.

Love playing the sax!

Growing up in a family business, I understand the importance of a healthy community around us. I feel it’s our responsibility to be good stewards of that community and remain active in helping it prosper. Whether it is with my church, in youth activities or non-profit organizations, I have always enjoyed the opportunities I’ve had to help make a difference.”


logoAnother community service agency Chris is passionate about is the United Way of Walworth County. Chris currently sits on the Board and serves on the Executive Committee and was an integral part of the evolution of UWWC from its roots as United Way of Delavan-Darien and Geneva Lakes United Way.
