Supreme Coatings in Middlebury Handles Surface Sealers and Coverings
Writer / Matt Keating
Gary Schlabach, co-owner of Supreme Coatings in Middlebury, firmly believes high-quality work and positive feedback from customers will always lead to repeat business.
“We are just getting started, but we want people to know we do a great job on everything,” Schlabach says. “We officially began last September, and we are getting the word out. From the beginning of a job to the finish, we make sure the customers get nothing but the absolute best.”
Schlabach, who co-owns the business with his brothers Kevin and Lyndon, says they look at the extent of a job first, and then get underway.
“We do chip and seal work on houses, pools and different floors,” Schlabach says. “We also put coatings on your wood, or cracks in your concrete.”
Schlabach and his brothers put a strong base and top coat on all of their work.
“The coatings we put on won’t chip or peel,” Schlabach says. “They are sun resistant, and hold up very well. We also have unlimited colors on the paint chips.”
Schlabach says there are many lake houses and pools in the area to keep the company busy.
“We can work on pool barns and areas such as washing machine walls and stairways,” Schlabach says. “We can also put the coatings on floors and do corners, as well as coatings on walls.”
Schlabach adds that concrete surfaces typically receive a lot of use and harsh weather over an extended period of time, and a good coating can make a big difference.
“You want your concrete floors and corners, and other areas, to look as good as they can for a long time,” Schlabach says. “Even if someone did a good job on your concrete outdoor floors before, there may be damage from the sun in the summer. Harsh winter weather can also have an impact on the concrete. There can also be stains and discoloration from weather damage or heavy use. We can put a good coating on the concrete on the floors, and on other concrete areas, that will make the surfaces last a long time.”
Schlabach says concrete floor coverings help to withstand heavy foot traffic over a long period of time.
“People also place heavy equipment and things on concrete, which can have an impact,” he says. “All of the wear and tear can cause more damage, so a good coating will make it last longer and look much better.”
Schlabach notes that concrete also absorbs water, which can also cause damage over long periods.
“If you get a lot of water or chemicals on the concrete floors, that also can cause chipping, cracking or staining,” he says. “There are also stains from chemicals, tire marks and grease. We can make your concrete floors look cleaner and shinier, and extend the life of them.”
Schlabach says concrete floor coatings can also provide concrete surfaces with a cleaner look, and give them a nice shine.
“People spend a lot of time keeping their lake houses and pool areas looking really nice, so we can make them look even better with a nice coating,” he says.
Schlabach and his brothers are hoping word of their quality work will spread.
“We are really counting on people telling their friends about us,” Schlabach says.
Schlabach stresses that he couldn’t find a better place to live than Middlebury.
“The people in Middlebury and the surrounding areas are just really friendly,” he says. “They are wonderful people who know how to make you feel welcome. Kevin lives in Goshen and Lyndon lives in Topeka. They also enjoy living in this area, and working for great people. Our families are happy in this area too. There are also so many great shops and restaurants in Middlebury, Goshen and Topeka.”
Schlabach hopes Supreme Coatings will expand its customer base through the coming years.
“I think there is a lot of room for growth in this area, because there are so many lake houses and pools that need chip and seal work, and coatings,” he says.
