Pouring Passion Into It – Meadowlark Concrete

With every prospective building, details are rarely left to chance, and seldom overlooked. Every element of a structure is carefully and deliberately chosen, from the materials to the architecture to the colors.

The team at Meadowlark Concrete stands poised to add their own unique scope of talent and expertise to each project, bringing a measure of stability to the experience in providing customized concrete flooring.

Perry Schrock is the owner of the small but capable company. Along with the efforts of half a dozen dedicated workers, Meadowlark Concrete is always ready to bring stability and security to virtually any building project. Their collective niche is installing concrete flatwork, from commercial to residential to agricultural facilities – “any building with a flat interior floor,” Schrock notes.

concreteSchrock was still a teenager when he first became introduced to this particular line of work, and discovered quickly that he had a knack for all it entailed. At 17, Schrock committed himself to learning the trade through his employment with a local contractor. After five years he spent time sharpening his skill set in other similar endeavors, until he reached something of a career crossroads.

“I was thinking that if I have that much experience, and thought that I can do it, I decided to strike out on my own,” he recalls.

That was five years ago, and Meadowlark Concrete has been establishing a solid reputation ever since, in more ways than one.concrete

“We can do projects from 4,000 to 10,000 square feet, and we’ve also done some bigger slabs, like 20,000 to 25,000 feet,” Schrock says. “Basically we can do anything big or small. We do a lot of work through homeowners, and we also work with contractors.”

Recent buildings that Meadowlark Concrete has assisted with include J&R Woodworking, Miller Lumber and Horsing Around. Schrock also notes that they just completed a project in Mishawaka that was their most extensive endeavor to date. He is hoping they can eventually build upon and expand their services by adding a new product line.concrete

“I’m hoping that sometime in the near future I can add a stamped concrete line,” he says.

Schrock is very content with how his business has thrived and developed in recent years, and is appreciate of the success. “Business has been good,” he says. “It’s been a great five years.”

Because of the nature of what they do, Schrock says, it is generally best to give Meadowlark Concrete a call to discuss and assess the nature of any vision one might have for their ideal construction goals. They will work anywhere within an approximately 50-mile radius, and can typically finish a job within a day and a half to two days.
