No Margin for Error "A As a contractor, you want everything from your paint supplier," says Tony Gavic, owner of AG Construction in Glendale, Wis. " You want products that are easy to apply. You want a finish that will last a long time. And you want a good price." That's why, when faced with the biggest coatings job of his career, he turned to Sherwin-Williams. Revitalizing a classic club Originally built in 1963, the Mequon Country Club was known for its 27-hole championship golf course, large clubhouse and banquet facility complete with swimming pool and six tennis courts, all nestled in an idyllic setting on the Milwaukee River in Wisconsin's Ozaukee County. But, according to Golf Inc. Magazine, it had "followed the steps of other private clubs, falling in the face of the recession and into the hands of the bank in a deed in lieu of foreclosure agreement" early in 2011. So when the club was sold and the new owners hired Gavic for the coatings work on an extensive facility remodel, the stakes were high. There was no room for error. 24 PPC Spring 2013
