Over the last few decades, Cornerstone has had the opportunity to take on a variety of unique projects that your everyday painter has never done. That's why the Manchester Police Department in Manchester, New Hampshire recently contacted us to provide them with an estimate to re-paint the backstop located in their state of the art firing range, which is the only one of its kind in the state.

After meeting with the firing range master and a representative from a paint manufacturer to review the project, Cornerstone was able to provide the local police department with an estimate to re-paint their backstop. It wasn't long before a "go" was issued for this project.

The preparation stage, like with any project, is always crucial to ensure the customer receives the best product and/or service. Cornerstone power sanded down the rough surface of the backstop to ensure it was smooth and to get rid of any peeling paint. The next step was to wash the entire structure to remove any dirt and left over gun residue to also ensure a proper painting surface.

Once the surface was properly prepared, Cornerstone applied two coats of Corotech (A Benjamin Moore company) V160, a polymide epoxy paint, which was recommended to us by the paint rep. This particular paint is a professional grade paint used in industrial and commercial settings. It has a hard scratch and impact resistant coating, which will help especially in the environment its being used for.
