Over the years, many plastering companies have come and gone in Boulder. Our constant desire to make our work the very best has allowed us to stay in business uninterrupted since 1949. Now in 2017, Reed, Leon Schielke still are in it, as well as some of their sons. We're not sure but we could be one of if not the oldest family run plastering companies in Colorado. By staying relatively small, we can afford to take the time to employ the most qualified English-speaking people who are willing to constantly improve their knowledge and skills of all aspects of plastering. Contact Schielke Plastering in Boulder Colorado, for all of your plaster and stucco work.
Schielke Plastering was founded in 1949 by Sig Schielke. Sig came to Boulder, Colorado, to attend Colorado University while serving in the Navy during WWII. He received his Bachelors degree in mechanical engineering and started working as a plasterer to pay the bills while he worked towards his Masters degree. While in Colorado, he began the outdoor activities of hunting and fishing, which was a big change in lifestyle after being raised in Chicago. The demand for engineers was small in the Boulder area at time, so to stay in Boulder, he decided to make a business of the plastering trade he had learned. In 1972, his sons, Leon and Reed, started working part-time for their dad, and after graduating from Colorado University, they started working full-time for their dad. Sig retired in 1990, and Leon and Reed took over the operations and continue to do so to this day.
