"I started in concrete back when I was 19 years old. I got out it and did other work in the construction field." said Schramm. "In 1998, I decided to go with a secure job as a state correctional officer. I did that for 16 years, but in 2005, I started doing concrete again on the side."
Unsatisfied with the prison field, he began working his two days off from the prison doing side concrete jobs.
"I felt a real sense of satisfaction in seeing what I have accomplished at the end of the day. Not to mention it felt great when your customer was very pleased with your work," said Schramm.
In January of 2013, Schramm started to make the plans as a full-time concrete contractor. It was in September of 2013 that he had majority of the tools and equipment needed and picked out his name.
"I have a good crew of three guys that has a combined total of 54 years of experience in this field and that's not including myself," Schramm said. "We at Buckeye Curb Appeal offer a variety of work. Any concrete we can do."
