We are constantly trying new products, new decorative techniques, and exploring out of the box thinking.
CreativeCrete was founded in 2000 by Jon Schuler when he was looking for something to challenge himself with outside of the medical field. With a thirst for knowledge and a passion for creativity, concrete was the answer.
Jon had long been looking for the answer as to what could maintain his passion as a career. Jon has an extensive educational background including double majoring in pre-med and chemistry, then graduating with a Pharm. D. (Doctor of Pharmacy). It wasn’t long before he found the pharmacy field mundane. Taking a hiatus from pharmacy in early 2000, he remodeled his own home. Growing up around construction, working through the summers to pay for school, he had the ability to do most of the work himself. Concrete was one of the materials of choice for his countertops. He has seen them in other places, and knew that is what he wanted. There were no countertop contractors in his area, so he took on the challenge himself. Finding a lot of misinformation and lack of products associated with concrete countertops, Jon was driven to develop his own materials and different methods using what was available.
With much trial and error, Jon put his education to the test as he first began with mix design, and sealing technology. Once completing his own project, he knew he could do better. It’s that driven personality that began CreativeCrete. He saw there was a need in his area that he knew he could fill, so he started a business.
CreativeCrete now offers clients concrete products that will far surpass their expectation of “concrete”.
