The Cornerstone Difference

The Cornerstone difference is in one of our core principles, personal growth. Education is not just a slogan and that is why we started Cornerstone University. Each team member goes through a minimum of 52 hours of training each year in our Cornerstone University. For our executives to interns, personal growth is really a cornerstone of our culture.  Superior education is what sets us apart for our clients and partners because the it translates into less errors, higher quality of delivery and subsequently better projects for our customers. Anyone can apply coatings, few can apply them correctly without all the run around, headaches and project management issues. We call this approach ” Superior delivery based on superior education”.

Cornerstone Coatings specializes in large, challenging commercial and industrial projects which require massive amounts of manpower and management staff to ensure our projects run smoothly. Cornerstone Coatings performs all aspects of interior and exterior coatings including high performance coatings, floor coatings, sandblasting, water repellents, wall coverings and paint stripping.

Cornerstone Coating’s main office is located just outside of Downtown Denver in Commerce City. Cornerstone facilities include a blast and paint booth large enough to drive an 18 wheel semi straight through without having to remove the load from the trailer. We have the largest heated indoor spray booth in Colorado which allows us to coat steel in even the coldest temperatures.  Our shop applied coatings services include up to 30 ton lifting capability with notice, 10,000 sf blast area, 5,000 sf enclosed heated paint booth, 6-acre lay-down area, and available 24-hour turnaround capabilities upon request.  Although most our coatings and fireproofing projects stretch from Denver along the Front Range and Wyoming territories, we frequently travel outside these areas to perform projects where we see an opportunity or can fill a need.
