How Rhino Shield Paints Siding for House Renovations

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Tired of your home’s color? Does the siding for your house look old? If so, it may be time for repainting. To get a color that lasts the test of time, consider Rhino Shield. Here’s how this innovative exterior paint works on siding.


Paint That Works on Siding

Siding can be challenging to paint. In fact, many people think that it’s impossible to paint vinyl siding. Luckily, that is not the case. You just need to find the right paint. Rhino Shield is perfect. This special exterior paint works on almost any material including wood, vinyl, metal, and even brick. Of course, it works perfect on all siding for houses as well.


The Perfect Color

You may think that if you have to purchase special exterior paint to go on your home’s siding that you won’t be able to find the color you want. Luckily, with Rhino Shield, that is not the case. You can get exactly the color you want. To get an idea of the possible colors, look at our color palette.


The Right Preparation

Once you’re armed with the right paint, you need to prep the area. At Rhino Shield, whether you want to paint your home’s siding or anything else, we always use a multi-stepped process, that starts with prep work.

Usually, we start by looking over the home for any necessary repair issues. For instance, if your siding is falling away from your house, we reattach it. Then, we clean the siding. If you hire painting contractors who don’t clean the exterior, the paint traps in anything that’s on your home. That can include mold or mildew that may eventually ruin your paint or stains that may bleed through. We ensure that doesn’t happen.


Priming the Siding for House Renovations

Once the surface is ready, our painting contractors decide if your home needs primer. Usually, it’s not necessary, but it depends on the current color of your siding and the new color that you want. For instance, if you’re going from a very dark color to a light color, we may suggest a layer of primer.


A Protective Shield for Your Siding

As you will see once the paint has been applied to your home’s siding, Rhino Shield is more than ordinary paint. This paint is tested for salt tolerance. You don’t have to worry about the salty air breaking down or pock marking your siding. Additionally, Rhino Shield is a ceramic coating. It has lower thermal-conductivity than the materials used in traditional paint, which is just one of the reasons that this type of paint helps to fight against fires. In fact, if you live in an area prone to wildfires, you may even be able to get a discount on your home insurance when you use Rhino Shield to reinforce your siding.


Once our painting contractors have finished applying the exterior paint to your home’s siding, you can sit back and relax. You don’t have to worry about painting again for quite a while. Rhino Shield comes with a transferable 25-year warranty. To learn more or to get a quote, contact us today.

The Benefits of Ceramic Paint

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

When you choose Rhino Shield over traditional exterior paint, your home gets a multi-layer coating system that adds color to your home, while also protecting your exterior. The finish coat is a ceramic coating. Here is a look at the benefits of the ceramic paint.

Bonds With Your Home

Adhesion is critical for any exterior paint system. Rhino Shield offers several types of primers designed to seal and bond to your walls.

Works With Resins in Other Layers to Protect Your Home

The ceramic layer works alongside of an adhesive sealing primer; an insulating and soundproofing layer; designed to resist algae, mold, and salt air. Binders and resins combine with the ceramic microspheres to create a flexible but tough and durable surface for your home. Available in a rainbow of colors, it also offers protection from fire and UV damage.

Reflects UV Rays

Formulated with ceramic microspheres, Rhino Shield is highly reflective of UV rays. That helps to keep a wall cooler and this protective element also slows oxidation from happening.


Makes Exterior Painting More Cost Effective

Painting your home can be an investment. Whether you pay professionals or invest in paint and equipment on your own, you end up spending a significant amount of money upfront. In most cases, you then have to repeat the process in five to seven years. When you use ceramic paint such as Rhino Shield, the process is more cost effective over time. You pay for it once, and it lasts for 25 years or more with our warranty. This investment can potentially even help with its resale value—the warranty is transferable so it transfers to the new buyers.

Is Tough Against Daily Life

Your home can take a beating, and not just from the weather. From banging a ladder against the side of the house, to bicyclesleaning on the side of the garage or debris flying in storms, many events can ding your home. Rhino Shield offer excellent tensile strength tested at over 200 pounds per square inch. This far exceed most paints in the market.

The Benefits of Professional Painting Services

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Is your paint peeling? Are you tired of your home’s color? Thinking about repainting? If so, you have a choice—you can do the work yourself or pay for professional painting services. Here’s why you should call in the pros.painting services

Quality Work

Professional painting contractors have the experience you need to create a quality finish. Amateurs may easily be able to paint a flat surface, but professionals can handle all kinds of challenges from the angles on dormer windows to the intricate surfaces on a Queen Anne design.

You don’t have to worry about paint glopping in one part, running in another, or looking messy anywhere. Professional painting services ensure that doesn’t happen.

Help With Repairs

Part of prepping a home involves repairing it. If you decide to paint your own home, you may find cracked window panes, loose caulking, or other big and small issues. You can paint around those issues, but that is not ideal. The damage can spread and ultimately wreak havoc on your exterior paint. Or, you can spend time repairing those issues. That adds extra time and expense to your project.

In contrast, if you hire professional painting services, the painting contractors generally handle these repairs for you. For example, when you hire Rhino Shield of Georgia, tackling repairs is one of the steps we always do when getting ready to paint a home.


Redoing the exterior paint on a home entails a certain level of danger. This is especially true if you have a multi-story home that requires a lot of ladders. Additionally, if your home has a sharp grade around the perimeter of the home or if it’s a walkout, that can be especially dangerous. It can be hard to stabilize a ladder, and you risk falling. When you have professionals paint your home, you don’t have to worry about personal injuries. In addition, all of our crews carry workers compensation and general liability insurance. We verify every month that the insurance is active.


People who provide professional painting services also tend to have a lot of equipment. For instance, they have access to scaffolding that is safer than ladders. They also have harnesses and fall arrest equipment to keep their workers’ safe.

On top of that, they have rollers, paint trays, and other painting equipment. If you decide to paint your own home, you have to buy all that equipment. In most cases, exterior paint lasts 10 to 15 years, and it’s unlikely the paint brushes or similar equipment you buy will last that long. As a result, you may save money in the long run by hiring professionals.


Many painting contractors provide warranties for both the paint and their work. In contrast, if you do the work yourself, you don’t have that same level of assurance. If something goes wrong or the paint flakes prematurely, you have to absorb the cost of repairing it.

At Rhino Shield of Georgia, we offer a longer warranty than most traditional painting services. We use Rhino Shield which is a special home coating, which offers a lot of advantages over traditional exterior paint, and that comes with a 25 year warranty.

The Best Exterior Paint for All Building Materials

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

There are a lot of challenges when it comes to painting the exterior of a home, and in particular, it can be challenging to find a paint that adheres to all of the materials on your house. One of the reasons Rhino Shield is the best exterior paint is because it works on a huge range of surfaces including  wood, vinyl, brick, stucco, and metal.

Protective Exterior Paint for Wood

Unfortunately, wood can be affected by a variety of outdoor threats. In particular, algae and mold can cause damage to wood, and if you live in a coastal climate, salt can eat away the wood. Rhino Shield has a layer that protects surfaces from algae, mold, and salt. That makes it one of the best exterior paints for wood.

The Best Exterior Paint for Vinyl Siding

If you have wood window frames and vinyl exterior siding, you can use Rhino Shield on all of it. Many homeowners aren’t even aware that you can paint siding. They think that you have to replace the exterior siding if you want a new color, but with the right paint, you can easily paint vinyl siding. Rhino Shield works perfectly in this situation.

Best Paint for Brick Homes

With brick, many owners opt to use stain rather than paint, but that often doesn’t achieve the color effect that you want. Rhino Shield is the best paint for brick homes because of its adhesive quality, and you can choose any color you want. Start with the >>color visualizer to find your perfect color. Then experiment to see how different colors look against your brick.

Quality Exterior Paint for Stucco

Painting stucco generally requires masonry paint, and to ensure that you get the paint around all the bumps and nubs in the stucco, you need to be careful. It’s also critical to repair the stucco before painting it.

Rhino Shield is the best exterior stucco paint because it adheres just as well to stucco as it does to other surfaces. Additionally, as part of the multi-step application process, our painting contractors do any repairs you need before applying the paint.

The Best Exterior Paint for Metal

If you’ve ever tried to paint metal with traditional paint, you know how challenging that can be. However, Rhino Shield can go easily on metal. If you want to paint a metal commercial building, you may want to consider this innovative solution. Similarly, if you have metal flashing on your home, metal gutters, or any other metal parts that you want painted, Rhino Shield can easily go on those surfaces.

This ceramic coating is more than just paint. It’s actually a multi-layered product that includes a protective layer, an insulating and sound-proof layer, a UV-reflective layer, and finally an adhesive sealing primer.

One Paint for the Entire Home

Typically, if you are painting your home, the painting contractors have to use different types of paint to work on all of the different surfaces of your home. However, when you choose a solution such as Rhino Shield, the painters can use the same paint over your whole home, regardless of which surface is being painted. That’s more convenient for you.

In addition to being the best exterior paint for a range of surfaces, this paint also comes with a 25 year warranty. To learn more, contact us today. We can answer your questions and give you a quote.

Why Rhino Shield is a Better Exterior House Paint

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

If you’re getting ready to hire painting contractors to redo the exterior paint on your home, you may want to consider Rhino Shield. This product outperforms traditional exterior house paint in a number of ways.

1. Features Multiple Beneficial Layers

Normally, when you apply exterior house paint, it just features one layer. From top to bottom, the product is the same. Rhino Shield is more than just paint. It’s actually a unique coating that you add to your home, and its multiple layers are designed to protect your home in a range of exciting ways.

The bottom layer protects your home from threats related to moisture such as algae and mold, but it also protects your home from salt. That’s ideal when you live relatively close to the ocean as the salt in the air can really threaten your home. The next layer provides some insulation and soundproofing.

In the face of rising energy costs and loud city and suburban streets, the middle layer is a must-have for many home owners. The next layer is the ceramic coating with UV protection so you don’t have to worry about the color fading, and finally, there’s an adhesive sealing primer layer to hold everything together and provide the ultimate protection.

2. Works on All Materials

Generally, exterior house paint is only designed to stick to the wood siding on a home. With Rhino Shield that is not the case. You can apply Rhino Shield to all parts of your home’s exterior. It works on metal, brick, stucco, and other materials in addition to wood. If you want to paint your metal garage doors to match your wood siding, that’s easy with Rhino Shield.

3. Offers a Multi-Step Application Process

In many cases, when you hire painting contractors to put paint on your home, they just come out and apply the paint. With Rhino Shield, you get a lot more effective and involved multi-step application process. The contractors start with repairs. Then, they prepare the surface for the paint. This can involve everything from sanding down surfaces to safely removing lead-based paint. They tape everything to ensure clear cut lines, and finally, they apply the Rhino Shield coating. Once everything is done, they do a final check and make sure the look meets your standards.

4. Comes With a Guarantee

With traditional exterior house paint, you have to repaint every few years. With Rhino Shield, the coating is designed to last for at least 25 years. So that you can rest assured that happens, the coating comes with a 25 year warranty. If the color fades or other issues occur during that time, it’s all covered.

5. Boasts Special Offers

A lot of painting contractors only accept cash up front. At Rhino Shield, we know that it isn’t always easy to do. To help our clients, we offer great specials. Note that specials are subject to change, but we have offered deals such as 25 percent off if you find us online or interest-free, same-as-cash financing with payments over a three to 12 month period.

If you’re ready for a superior experience, contact Rhino Shield. Our painting contractors do an amazing job that provides your home with beautiful exterior house paint in an innovative new way.

Why Rhino Shield is One of the Best Paint Companies for Exterior Paint

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Choosing the right exterior paint for your home is important. You want paint that will stand the test of time and look great. Rhino Shield is definitely one of the paint companies you should consider. Here’s why it just might be the right option.paint companies

1. Safe

When looking at various paint companies, you need to think about more than just how your home looks. You also need to think about the safety of the product you are choosing. Rhino Shield has a very low amount of VOCs. That stands for volatile organic compounds, and when inhaled, they can lead to cancer. If it gets on your skin while you’re painting, it’s also completely safe.

2. Encapsulates Lead

When you have our team of professionals apply Rhino Shield to your home, we also test for lead paint, and we take the time to safely remove it. Unfortunately, many paint companies don’t even test for lead, and that can be dangerous, especially if your existing paint is old.
That said, if you prefer to just apply Rhino Shield over your existing paint, it can encapsulate lead. Its thickness makes it safe to put over lead-based paint, and it holds in the lead so you don’t have to worry about it getting into the air and being inhaled by you, your family, your pets, or your neighbors.

3. Nonflammable

Annually, there are about 365,500 home fires in the United States—that’s the equivalent of 1,000 per day. These fires cause more than 2,500 deaths and over 11,000 injuries. To minimize your risk, it helps to choose the right paint companies, and Rhino Shield is nonflammable.
If you live in an area prone to wildfires, you may even qualify for a discount on your homeowner’s coverage. Rhino Shield’s class A fire and smoke rating resists these types of fires, and many home insurance companies offer special discounts as a result.

4. Reduced Effects of Aging

Almost all exterior paint looks great right away, but the true test is whether or not the paint can withstand aging. Rhino Shield has been tested by BASF, a third-party company, and the paint excelled in regards to resisting the effects of aging.
BASF also tested Rhino Shield products for tensile strength, flexibility, breathability, and viscosity. This exterior paint excelled in all of those categories.

5. Multiple Colors and Custom Options

Safety and environmental friendliness is just one element to consider when choosing paint companies for your home. You also need to think about how it’s going to look. In addition to resisting aging as explained above, Rhino Shield also offers a huge range of colors.
You may even be able to customize your color, and you can use the online tool to visualize how different exterior paint colors will look on the outside of your home. You just upload a picture, choose a color, and test it out.

Now that you know why this is one of the best paint companies for exterior paint, it’s time to move forward. Contact Rhino Shield today, and learn more about getting this great product on your home.

Exterior House Painting Trends Throughout History

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

It’s common today to see a wide array of building materials and colors on residential homes when driving down the street. However, that wasn’t always the case.

If you are considering changing the look and/or color of your home’s facade, it can help to have some historical context for exterior house painting trends. This is particularly true if your home is considered to be historic.

house painting

Colors (or a Lack Thereof)

Before the Revolutionary War, American homeowners did not use paint. Instead, the building materials themselves – white pine, white oak and white cedar, were both attractive and durable.

In the early 1800s, homeowners began using paints to color the exteriors of their homes, however these colors were usually limited to those derived from natural elements like colored clays, red iron oxide and lamp black. While there were some chemical-based blue and green colors available at this time, they were too expensive for the average homeowner. What’s more, the colors weren’t necessarily stable and could change.

In the mid-1850s, synthetic dyes and pigments were created. For the first time, regular homeowners had access to – and could afford – colored paint to change the look of their homes. Fast forward to the mid-late 20th century, when consumers could have specific paint colors mixed right in the store, giving homeowners the chance to have a custom color for the outside of their home.

Choosing House Painting Colors Based on House Style

If you are painting a house that was built before 1920 and want to use a white paint, consider instead using an off-white color, which is what would have been available to homeowners at that time.

If your home dates back to the latter part of the eighteenth century, you might consider house painting using earth tones and monochromatic schemes with your trim and siding. Colors available at that time were deep yellows, browns, grays, and reds.

Between about 1790 and 1840, homeowners favored off-white and cream colors for their homes’ exteriors, mimicking classic Roman and Greek themes. Homes from this period with shutters usually had a copper-based green paint, standing in sharp contrast to the home’s light color.

Stucco Siding

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

There are several different types of sidings, each with their own benefits. Those sidings range anywhere from wood and metal, including steel and aluminum, to vinyl, fiber cement, and stucco.

Stucco, however, has a very distinct look, one that we absolutely love here at Rhino Shield! It has a smooth surface, allowing you to add coloring to your cement coats, as well as artistic designs, mosaics and murals into your stucco walls before the cement dries. Stucco is incredibly versatile and can be as traditional or creative as you are!

On top of that, it has several benefits. Made up of Portland cement, sand, lime, and water, stucco offers a solid, durable, and seamless exterior for your home. Stucco offers a natural resistance to fire, lasting durability, and is incredibly low maintenance, which for most homeowners is a necessity! And it only costs about $6-$9 per square foot to install. Stucco is an incredible insulator of both warm and cool air, and it won’t ever rot out.

Unfortunately though, stucco can sometimes develop several hairline cracks. Our APS (Adhesive Primer Sealer) works great to fill in minor cracks. Our products work great to keep water out, and our ceramic coatings help with insulation, and long lasting results that are sure to satisfy our customers.

If you find larger cracks, stucco patch fill ins may be required. If your stucco home is bowing away from the house, if it sounds hollow, or contains large cracks or holes, a professional fix may be required. We have two great partners:

Rhino Shield Cost Comparison

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Over the last several months we’ve noticed you, our customers, searching for the cost of Rhino Shield. Although it varies drastically from one home to another, we wanted to let you know that we’ve heard you and we’re here to give you the best answer possible!

There are several different products that go hand in hand with the exterior of your home. Among these are vinyl siding, paint, and coating products. Rhino Shield falls into the latter of the three. Each product varies in price point. Vinyl siding can be extremely costly, whereas paint products fall on the lower end of the spectrum. Rhino Shield’s price point lies somewhere in between.

Our average sized project usually has an interior square footage of approximately 2600 square feet. A complete exterior coating on these homes usually range from $10,000-18,000. This is subject to the design and layout of the home. Not every home is the same, which is why the cost can vary significantly. We understand that this can be a huge investment in your home’s exterior, but here at Rhino Shield, we provide our customers with the best products and customer service available. Our products offer benefits that our competitor’s products do not.

Rhino Shield has a proven product that resists fading and is safe for the environment. We even carry a 25-Year Warranty. Investing in our exterior coating prevents costly maintenance by eliminating the need to repaint. Not only does our coating make your home look refreshed, renewed, and absolutely stunning, it keeps it looking that way for years to come.

Rhino Shield Ceramic Coating is durable, flexible, and low maintenance. It resists water penetration, and can provide you and your home with insulation benefits. It can even alleviate the stress that comes from outside noise. Our coating provides fire resistance, UV blockers, mildewcides, and algeacides, aiding in the protection of you and your home.

Vinyl sidings can be extremely pricey, but Rhino Shield has managed to beat out nearly every vinyl siding estimate out there! Vinyl also has several drawbacks. It tends to dent easily, and absorb pigments, making panel replacement nearly impossible. Regular paint, while less expensive, tends to fade fast and peel easily. Rhino Shield adds value to your home, and keeps it looking fresh and new for twenty five years. We know that you won’t be disappointed with out products, so give us a call and get your estimate today!
