The Most Challenging Exterior Painting Surface of All

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

A-BeforeWe are often asked what is the most challenging surface of home exteriors for painting contractors. Hands down, it’s brick.

Why? Brick is a surface that is normally not expected to be painted. But if the brick is old and worn, a fresh coat of paint makes the house look a lot more sleek and modern.

Painting contractors have take into account the two components of brick as well as mortar. Both are porous. Without a good primer, they could absorb paint like a sponge, causing an uneven, blotchy appearance. As brick ages, it gets a salt buildup on the surface. As mortar ages, its pH may change and make it harder for paint to adhere properly. The home may require an acid wash first to remove these problems. It takes a true professional painting contractor to masterfully cover brick.

Also, the porous quality of brick allows it to absorb a fair amount of moisture. So painting contractors must first make sure the brick is completely dry before painting. Rhino Shield painters also puts down a primer vapor barrier coating before applying the final durable ceramic color coat.  A_after

And that brings us to yet another challenge to consider: once applied, it’s almost impossible to remove paint from brick. Although there are difficult-to-use chemical removers, your color scheme should be chosen with the thought in mind that this is going to be permanent. And indeed, Rhino Shield ceramic paint is durable enough to keep the finish looking like new for 25 years or more. You’ll never have to paint again.

Rhino Shield Stands Up To Coastal Weather

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

floridastorm    People tend to joke that Savannah, Georgia, has only two seasons: warm and hot as Hades.

Yet Rhino Shield residential exterior paint can stand up to it all. Why? Rhino Shield exterior ceramic paint was developed in Florida specifically to battle the extremes of a coastal climate — moist heat, wind and rain, plus salt blistering and sand abrasion. See our  12 Reasons to Have Rhino Shield page on our website to learn more about independent test results. The hurricane season will be letting up soon, making the coming cooler,drier days the very best time of year to paint and protect your coastal home. Call Georgia Coatings to schedule a Rhino Shield exterior paint protection application plan for your home.  Brunswick and Savannah, GA residents along with Hilton Head, SC residents, call us at 1-912-335-6600 or 1-843-476-487.

Ceramic Coating For Tennessee Log Cabins And Cedar Homes

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

logafter

Among the beautiful mountains of Tennessee are dwellings that present a special challenge for our Tennessee affiliate: log cabins and cedar homes. Ernie Jones of the Knoxville office explains that these porous wood sidings rapidly become weather-worn and faded. They must be re-stained approximately every three years. However, with Rhino Shield ceramic coating, he says, “It’s one and done.”

If you were to use standard acrylic paint on such a surface, he explains, it would peel off because of the oils and chemicals used to pre-treat the wood, plus countless applications of stain treatments. But the Rhino Shield process starts with pressure washing and an extra step to seal in those oils and chemicals.

Your Rhino Shield professionals can also make repairs to the siding before applying our special adhesive primer. This primer is a double-binding adhesive, adhering tightly to the wood as well as binding permanently to the ceramic coating top layer that is applied as a final step.

Regular paint would come right off, Jones says, but Rhino Shield is a permanent solution. It comes with a 25 year warranty, but Jones remarks confidently that the coating could really last as long as 40 years. It’s a permanent solution to the mountain home owner’s ‘every-three-years’ headache.

Our Rhino Shield office in Knoxville serves all of east Tennessee, including Chattanooga. They are also part of the Tennessee Self Storage Association, providing near-permanent ceramic coating solutions for the area’s metal storage units, which are high maintenance buildings. But not to worry – Rhino Shield does the job like a champ.

Make Your Home Siding More Efficient

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

run Here is a suggestion that may cut down on summer cooling bills. Regardless of whether you have Hardy Plank, brick, stucco, aluminum or a plastic home exterior, it is possible that you can have more energy efficient siding with durable ceramic Rhino Shield coating.

Let Georgia Coatings painting services apply Rhino Shield ceramic coating to your home. It takes only three to five days.

Alpharetta and North Metro Georgia residents are well aware of the high cost of air conditioning during a Southern summer. This is a good time to make your home siding somewhat cooler with Rhino Shield’s thick insulating coverage.

Georgia Coatings painting services technicians are experienced professionals who give you an up-front estimate, prepare or make repairs to the siding,  then use a primer sealer and finally a lustrous top coat that is more resistant to fading than many acrylic paints. Rhino Shield’s ceramic beads ‘bounce’ UV waves from the sun off the finished siding to help keep it cooler.

We use Rhino Shield specifically because it goes on thicker for better weathering protection. Tests by independent lab 3M have demonstrated that Rhino Shield’s ceramic microspheres reflect as much as 90% of UV waves off your home’s exterior siding. This “low E” UV protection acts similar to a sunscreen for your home, bouncing much of the sun’s harshest rays off of the siding, which may help to lower your siding’s surface temperature.

Call Georgia Coatings at 678-205-4500 for more information. Every house is different and some may not see the savings as much as others. This is another way to save: Rhino Shield is warranted against chipping and peeling for 25 years. You may never paint again.

These April Showers Drench Your Home Exterior

Friday, April 17th, 2015

dry-rot If you live anywhere in the Southeast, from Asheville to Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta and Savannah or Hilton Head, you’ve been drenched by rain for weeks on end. April Showers ad infinitum.

If your home’s exterior paint siding is old, chances are the finish is cracked and has allowed the intrusion of copious amounts of rainwater by now. Your paint will peel — but not before allowing seepage into the the exterior substrate materials, causing wood to swell, warp and rot, or to rust if it is certain kinds of metal.

In addition, these overcast skies and chronic rain are the perfect breeding ground for mildew and algae growth. Siding is probably beginning to grow green or black casts.

Before your home gets any worse, now is the time to have our residential painting contractors put a halt to the damage and weatherize your home’s exterior paint siding for a good 25 years with Rhino Shield ceramic coating. Here’s why:

1. Rhino Shield’s small ceramic microspheres roll together tightly to form a more rain-proof barrier.
2. Because these are not flat ‘flakes’ such as standard acrylic home exterior paint, Rhino Shield applies up to eight times thicker, for sturdier protection against the elements.
3. Rhino Shield comes with mildewcides, algaecides and fungicides built right into the coating emulsion, providing full protection for every square inch of your home’s coated exterior, not just the finished surface.
4. Rhino Shield’s transferable warranty guarantees that this new exterior paint siding will not crack or peel for 25 years.

Now would be a good time to call us for a free home estimate.
