WEITZER COMPANY

A Family Tradition of Craftsmanship

NIck WeitzerNick Weitzer learned woodworking from his father, Harry Weitzer, a nationally recognized furniture designer and master wood worker. Nick apprenticed and worked for Oregon’s most elite, high-end builders, designing and crafting cabinet and woodwork installations.

In 1992 Nick started his own company providing innovative solutions in many construction arenas.

At Weitzer Company Nick has fostered an understanding that the client is at the center of the work. Over the years, he has gathered a team that carries with pride, the Weitzer legacy of craftsmanship, creativity, and excellent communication.

OUR PROCESS

A Unique Approach that Puts You First

Dream

DREAM

Building is ultimately about turning a dream into reality. The client is at the center of our work – our first priority is to listen carefully to your ideas and reflect back to you what we heard to ensure we understand your vision. We help you think into the unknown, offering positive, practical solutions to complicated issues, and making your ideas sing. It sounds simple, but requires cultivated skills, substantial “know-how” and seasoned resources to accomplish.

Here’s what our clients have to say about collaborating with us

Design

DESIGN

Good design is a marriage of beauty and functionality – whether it’s creating a livable, comfortable space that can grow with the family, or a business space that encourages engagement and customer flow.  Our team of designers employ their creative and technical expertise to bring you a design that achieves your goals while matching your budget.  Your designer is your project manager. This means the details that went into your design are seamlessly carried forward into the construction process.
