What Clients Say About

Classic Protective Coatings

Due to the outstanding work that was done rehabbing and painting the Lewisville Water Tank I am compelled to write to you to congratulate Mr. Efrain Valdelamar and his crew. These gentlemen worked for several months on a tank rehab that was in restrictive conditions being next to a busy collector road and elementary school playground. Not one complaint was received. To the contrary I was approached several times with compliments about their seemingly invisible work in a most visible area in the center of downtown Lewisville. The product delivered was exactly what was negotiated in size, proportion and placement.

Bob Greback
Town Manager of Lewisville, NC
  • Classic Protective Coating never fails to perform skillfully, efficiently, and with the highest standard of professionalism. I would highly recommend Classic Protective Coatings for any municipalities’ water tower project.

    Rodney Ellis
    Vice President/COO of KLM Engineering, Inc.
  • I would like to commend you and your crew for the outstanding safety and quality control programs implemented. During this 3-month project there was not a single accident, incident or injury reported. There was not one reported incident of overspray or damage to any vehicle or aircraft in adjacent parking lots.

    Christopher Brown
    Vice President of Eastern Sun Enterprises
  • Right from the start of the job when I saw the blast and air handling equipment, I sensed that this must be a very organized crew. As the job progressed, I saw a great model of teamwork. It is not an every day occurrence that we have a contractor exceed our expectations. We want to thank Classic Protective Coatings for their excellent workmanship.

    Scott Deitz
    Operations Manager of Alexandria Light and Power
  • As NACE inspector, working with Classic Protective Coatings has been a pleasure, both on the Union job and at the Cape Canaveral Air Force E.W.T. job. Your entire crew is to be commended on safety and quality. The equipment you’ve designed and use is, by far, the most sophisticated and intelligent set up I’ve seen. We look forward to working with you again.”

    Rick Freeland

  • Classic Protective Coating’s ability to work with the public, combined with the staff’s personal integrity made our two projects together seamless transitions form taking the tanks out of service to putting them back online with zero punch list items at completion.

    Jeremy Hoyt
    City of Menomonie Water Utility Superintendent
