About Us

About Us, Durable Coatings

The Durable Coatings team is a group of friends who love to serve homeowners and develop their craft. Zac, our estimator, is a professionally trained chef and has a passion for people and bringing excellent food into his relationships. One of our lead installers is Gabe, who is central Iowa’s John Daly, both in skill and finesse when it comes to golf (and installing coatings!). Our second installer Jacob is a secret accountant and self-proclaimed dart champion in the office. Owen, our third installer, served our country in the military and has the goal of becoming a pilot for Wycliffe Bible Translators. Last, but not least is our owner John, who loves limping to the finish line in local mud-runs and destroying the competition in slow pitch softball. He has a passion for employee-ownership and trying hard things in business. We are a family who works as a team to transform Iowa, one home at a time.

More About Durable Coatings and Our Process

Our certified installers will explain their installation process and obtain information to complete a needs assessment to provide you with a solution that meets your needs.

This ensures we meet your exact goals and make sure we are going to be delivering exactly what you are envisioning. In just 30 minutes, your new garage will begin to take shape as we show you the different flooring options.

Your garage upgrade is an investment in your home, which is why we want to make absolutely certain that your investment pays off.

We believe that you deserve to have a clear picture of what the final outcome will be before you make the final decision to work with us.

We work according to your time constraints and schedule. Our team takes pride in our customers watching their space quickly transform in front of their eyes! We are fast, efficient, and able to get your entire project finished in JUST ONE DAY.

We believe in quality above all else. We work only with the best manufacturers available, the finest materials, and only use the highest certified, skilled professionals.

To see these differences first hand, reach out to us today for a free, no-obligation consultation. We look forward to working with you.

About the Owner
John Burdine Jr.

Founded by John Burdine Jr, an Ames native and ISU alum, Durable Coatings spun out of the world’s most awesome gutter cleaning, deck staining and soft washing company, Pressure Point Cleaners. John also started such world changing endeavors as Mr. ProActive (Systematic Home Care…for all those little things around the house) and eBike Iowa (super fun and fast electric bikes)! If you’re wondering how he has time for all that…the truth is he doesn’t, at least not on his own. John is surrounded by a truly special group of friends (family really) that share his values and make this group of companies the “Best Place to Work in the Universe” (according to internal polls). John is married to Ames native Neva (used to be Hibbing) and they have one incredible 8ish year old daughter who can be found building forts at the bike shop. She would want you to know about their cat, Patmos. John’s interests and hobbies include slow pitch softball, riding fat tire eBikes, participating in Mud Runs, and fellowshipping at Stonebrook Church.
