Louis Weiher, CR, CCPPresident/Owner
In addition to overseeing the day-to-day operations at Carmel Builders, Louis takes an active role in all projects, handling Sales and helping to establish the “big picture” of your project. As the first point of contact for clients, he shares WHO we are, WHAT makes us different, and WHY working with us makes sense based on shared goals. He provides customers with the information and knowledge needed to ensure a decision is always made with their best interest in mind.
Under his leadership, Carmel Builders has been recognized nationally for its work including as a Remodeling Magazine Big50 and numerous NARI COTY awards. Passionate about the industry, Louis is a member of and holds leadership positions in several trade organizations including Remodelers Advantage and NARI Milwaukee, where serves as Board Vice President. He is also Chairman of the MATC Carpentry and Cabinetmaking Advisory Committee.
Owning your home as part of the American Dream is about providing your family with a secure living space… it’s about the experiences and memories you achieve when having a home to call your own.
One aspect of being a professional team of builders is knowing the industry and customers mindset. Louis knows how to engage with his customers and provides as much knowledge as needed to ensure the customer makes a decision with their best interest in mind.
Pushing people to remodel or build new is not part of his business strategy. Instead, he values relationships with their clients and wants every experience to be as professional and satisfying as possible. This is partly why Carmel Builders has seen such immense growth under his watch.
As he took over the company, he set up goals to establish their culture to not just drive growth but allow for the right work-life balance for the Carmel Builders team. He wholeheartedly believes that the collective effort of the team is behind the company’s success, which shows in their many nominations and recent national award acknowledgements.
Louis also knows the remodeling world is bigger than just Carmel Builders. That’s why he dedicates himself to numerous community groups, such as:
- Serving on the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Board of Directors as a member of the Finance Committee and the Bylaws & Ethics Committee.
- Sits as Chairman of the MATC Carpentry and Cabinetmaking Advisory Committee.
- An active member of the Chancellor’s Athletic Campaign Cabinet at UW-Milwaukee.
As much fun and passion as Louis brings to Carmel Builders, he brings the same to his time away from the company. Louis enjoys hanging with his wife, Kate, and dog, Owen. He rarely stands still and occupies much of his free time in the great outdoors. His outdoor passions include fishing (ask him about that one musky that got away), camping, and skiing. One weekend you may find him climbing rock walls in Kentucky with his wife. The next weekend he may be on a 20-mile trail run through a local park. From your remodeling project to his daily life, Louis knows the journey is just as important as the final destination.
