The Best House Siding Option Is Rhino Shield

Friday, March 6th, 2015

1-house-painter As warmer weather approaches, homeowners in Alpharetta and metro Atlanta, Georgia, are coming out of their homes to begin Spring cleaning. This is the time to spruce up your home’s exterior before it becomes “Hotlanta” again.

Your home siding may have gotten weather-worn with dull, cracked or chipped paint, “that green stuff” and rust stains, or even portions of Hardy Plank that may have broken off. This is the time of year when you hear advertisements for replacing your home’s exterior with new siding, but that’s a costly mistake. The best house siding option is not new siding, but a new application of Rhino Shield ceramic coating house paint.

Rhino Shield’s ceramic coating house paint is made of tiny ceramic microbeads in an emulsion that is 8 to 10 times thicker than ordinary paint. These beads retain their color for a bright finish lasting decades. They are the best house siding option because they fit together tightly to form a weather-proof and sun-proof bond that can take the rain, cold and bright sun that homes in Alpharetta and greater Atlanta experience. Special added ingredients automatically kill the mold and mildew that can sometimes happen after a rainy day in Georgia. You couldn’t ask for a better house siding option than this.

Our expert team of exterior painters make repairs to your home’s exterior before putting on an adhesive sealer coat that protects your home like a glove. The second coat of ceramic coating house paint comes in any of 1,500 colors that will look just as beautiful 25 years later – guaranteed.

Now is the time to make your home gorgeous again. Call Georgia Coatings to get the best house siding option. That’s Rhino Shield ceramic coating house paint.

Rhino Shield Ceramic Coating House Paint Fights Fights Snow Damage

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

It’s around 50 degrees and sunny at our satellite office in Knoxville, Tennessee this week, and delightful weather at our Asheville, North Carolina office, too. The first signs of Spring are here! But during the winter, Asheville and Knoxville get snow – not a lot – but enough to seep into home foundations and siding as the spring thaw begins and the snow begins to melt.

Frigid temps have caused home exteriors and housing fixtures such as wrought iron trim to shrink and become brittle during the winter. They may even crack and split. Wrought iron and other metals will rust. Then water from snow runoff gets into these cracks, crevices and weakened metals, and can ruin a home by:

*destroying the home’s outer materials,
*getting into the home’s foundation and wood structure, causing warping, bulging, cracking or splitting, *causing mold and mildew to grow within the structure, *this mold may even spread to interior walls where it can become a toxic health issue

Our Rhino Shield ceramic coating house paint is the answer to all these problems. Rhino Shield ceramic coating house paint is made of ceramic microbeads that will not break down with water. It goes on thick. Our highly experienced exterior painters repair your foundation materials such as masonite with Hardi Plank, and apply a primer sealer that locks out water, yet allows the walls to breathe indoor vapors outward. Then our exterior painters apply a second coat of ceramic coating house paint in your choice of any of 1,500 colors.
The final result is a beautiful layer of protection around your home that is as much as 8 times thicker than regular house paint. Rhino Shield ceramic coating house paint comes with a 25 years transferrable warranty against cracking, chipping and peeling. This length of time is derived from weathering testing by the well-known independent laboratory, BASF, which has affirmed that Rhino Shield ceramic paint will endure for more than 25 years.
Once our professional exterior painters protect your home, you will never paint again.

This is the time to take advantage of these sunny and mild days to weatherize your home for the next winter.

What is Rhino Shield Ceramic Coating?

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Rhino Shield elastomeric ceramic coating is the result of years of scientific research and development to bring you the best exterior house coating protection on the market.

Ceramic coating has been in military development since the 1940s, and perfected for commercial use in the 1960s by the 3M Company. This coating is used in extreme scientific equipment such as wind tunnels, NASA spacecraft and NASCAR’s high-heat engine parts, for high-use industrial machinery, and for commercial garage or warehouse floors that are subject to lots of wear and spills. That’s because the titanium dioxide ceramic finish is so durable and easy to clean.

Elastomeric ceramic coating has been in residential use for 20+ years now, proving its practicality. Home remodeling expert Bob Vila says on his website that ceramic coating is “highly effective at preventing unnecessary heat loss or gain in residential and commercial structures.” That means you will save money on your heating and air conditioning bills, among other things.

The necessity of having a home exterior covering that could withstand the intense heat, chronic humidity, UV fading and the beatings of tropical storms drove a home exterior painting company in Florida to look for answers. They collaborated with a chemist to develop a residential-use home exterior product that could take a beating. The chemist looked to ceramic coating for an answer and spent a year in development. Rhino Shield was born. Rhino Shield continues to be subjected to routine testing by an outside lab (BASF) for fire resistance and durability to ensure the best quality product for your home.

Rhino Shield stands up to heat, humidity, torrential rains and storm-level winds (and frigid temps) without cracking, peeling or tearing. It endures damaging UV rays, keeps out moisture and algae buildup, helps to sound-proof because of it goes on 8 to 10 times thicker than paint, and it comes with a 25 year warranty. What more could you ask for?

Winter Weather-Proofing Your Home Exterior

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

While you are warm and comfortable indoors during the winter, your home’s exterior is taking a beating. That’s why you need our ‘tough as a rhino’s hide’ durable Rhino Shield elastomeric ceramic coating for your home.

In Georgia and South Carolina winter weather puts great strain on the exterior of the home as it expands and contracts in response to almost daily swings of warm weather that can suddenly take a nose-dive into frigid temps. Our homes also endure bouts what seems like endless cold rain – and occasional snow and ice storms – that batter the home’s exterior. In Tennessee, snow builds up, ice cakes on, salt has to be used to remove it. These harsh conditions dig into the surface of your home’s exterior. When spring temps thaw it all out, water seeps into any stress fractures the home’s exterior may have experienced from the old. Simple acrylic paint is hardly a defense against this.

But our Rhino Shield eslastomeric ceramic coating is not paint. It’s made of tiny ceramic beads that roll into place together to adhere much tighter than flat acrylic flakes. We start with a primer and finish with the ceramic coating in any of 1,500 colors that leaves a protective coating on your home’s exterior 8-10 times thicker than standard paint. It keeps out the rain and snow, has UV protectors to keep its color against sunshine, and has mildewcides and fungicides to kill any waterborne contaminants that might attack the substrate.

The elastomeric ‘elastic’ quality of the finish allows it to bend and stretch as the home responds to the expansion and contraction of weathering. Plus, our Rhino Shield elesatomeric ceramic coating comes with a 25 year warranty against peeling, chipping and cracking. It’s a win-win-win situation.

Call us at 877-678-2054 or 678-205-4500 in the Metro Atlanta area to learn how we can protect your home. While you’re at it, please schedule your FREE at-home written estimate today. You can rest assured knowing that your property investment is protected with Rhino Shield.

Don’t Forget The Trim

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Rhino Shield’s elsatomeric ceramic coating does more than enhance your home’s exterior walls. It also covers, seals and beautifies your home’s doors and shutters, awnings, porches, gutters and downspouts – even certain types of roofing.

Our ceramic coating covers wood, stucco, metal, tile, vinyl siding, Hardi Plank and concrete block with ease. The coating applies 8 – 10 times thicker than regular acrylic paint for a finish that lasts and is UV ray resistant – the color doesn’t fade. What a relief it is to know you’ll never have to paint again.

Rhino Shield’s elastomeric properties allow the coating to bend as age and weather affect your home, for perfect beauty year after year. There is no cracking, peeling or chipping. This is backed up with a 25 year transferable warranty!

Old Home Restoration With Rhino Shield

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

Older homes are often family or community treasures. Age may not have been kind to them, though. The best restoration requires the best wall coating treatment, applied by professional application technicians, so treasured homes can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Rhino Shield elastomeric ceramic coating is not ‘paint.’ It is made of tiny ceramic beads in a minimal amount of liquid, making it less watery than acrylic paint. Drying time is faster, and the coating is 8-10 times thicker than paint, for maximum protection from weather.

The tiny ceramic beads slide together tightly, yet have full independent flexibility, to give our wall coating great elasticity. Older homes are especially susceptible to shifting and settling with changing seasons and subtle ground movement. Our elastomeric ceramic coating moves with the substrate (wood, metal, etc.) to keep it from cracking or peeling. This claim is backed up with a 25 year warranty.

Rhino Shield elastomeric ceramic wall coating provides even more protection. It’s waterproof, yet allows inside vapors. It provides UV and sun-damage proofing to keep the color from fading, and to keep heating and cooling bills lower. It is Class A fire rated by BASF, an independent testing lab. And it also contains mildewcides and fungicides to keep rot and mold from building up. You never have to paint again, and you will probably never have to pressure wash again, either.

Call us at 877-678-2054 or contact us through our website to learn how you can be protecting your older home today.

Save Money Four Ways With Rhino Shield

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

There is no doubt that Rhino Shield elastomeric ceramic coating is a wise choice for your home’s exterior. Here’s how Rhino Shield saves you money:

Most paints last only 8 years or so before fading and decomposing. With Rhino Shield ceramic coating, you won’t have to paint for another 25 years at least. Think of the savings! This is backed by a 25 year warranty against cracking or peeling. It’s elastomeric stretching properties allow the coating to bend in response to settling and the normal expansion and contraction of the substrate due to weather. That keeps it from cracking apart. Built in color protectectants keep the colors fresh year after year.

Our ceramic coating goes on 8-9 times thicker than regular paint, helping to keep outside temperatures from affecting inside comfort. It also contains UV resistance that deflects the sun’s ultra-violet rays. Save on heating and cooling bills.

In addition, built in mildewcides and fungicides keep your home’s exterior surface from building the ‘green grunge’ that typically accumulates on the sides of homes, especially in wooded areas. Save money on routine pressure washing.

Finally, our Rhino Shield elastomeric exterior ceramic coating stays beautiful, and the 25 year warranty is transferable. Both increase your home’s resale value.

Rust? We’ve Got You Covered With Rhino Rust Bond

Monday, August 25th, 2014
Trying to paint over rust can be tricky. It’s not a solid surface anymore. Over time air and moisture break down elements in iron and iron alloy metals such as steel. The chemical reaction creates that reddish iron oxide that separates from the rest of the underlying metal, peeling away and flaking off.
 
The surface is no longer a solid one. When you paint over rust, the coating should be one that can lay over it thickly to create a smooth finish. Rhino Shield’s Rhino Rust Bond give you smooth, unified results that bring back the original beauty.
 
Rhino Rust Bond adheres tightly to corrosion, sealing it permanently before the application of any color coating.  It penetrates and reinforces with a strong two-part system of epoxy application.
 
When you paint over rust, the underlying metal is still vulnerable to further rusting underneath unless you use Rhino Rust Bond. It contains a rust inhibitor to stop further corrosion. We’ve got you covered from all angles.
 
Although Rhino Rust Bond has a great reputation for industrial use, the same can be used at home. Apply it to metal pipes and posts in your basement or garage, to exterior metal walls and corrugated roofs, and to wrought iron fencing for a beautiful new look.
Rhino Rust Bond is cost-effective and non-toxic. Call Georgia Coatings at 678-205-4500 to learn more.

What Elastomeric Painting Means To You

Sunday, August 17th, 2014
“An elastomer is a polymer with viscoelasticity (colloquially “elasticity”), generally having low Young’s modulus and high failure strain compared with other materials.’
 
So says Wikipedia. But what does that mean to you, the average home owner?
 
The Paint Quality Institute puts it into better perspective: “Elastomeric wall coatings are exterior acrylic latex designed to be applied in very thick films (about 10 times as thick as regular paints); they are tough and flexible, and stretch as cracks underneath open and close, thus bridging the cracks and keeping water out while maintaining a nice appearance. These coatings are called EWCs for short.”
 
Regular house paint is composed of acrylic, some color pigment, and about 60% water. Our durable, ‘thick as a rhino’s hide’  Rhino Shield Ceramic Coating contains 46% elastomeric resin in place of most of the water.
 
It goes on thicker. The color isn’t some kind of white-wash, but a gleaming coat with layered depth. It washes easily, keeping maintenance to a minimum. It doesn’t get dried out, but remains ‘bendable’ as houses shift with time and soil conditions. It keeps moisture out. It protects your house for many more years than normal paint. In fact, our Rhino Shield elastomeric ceramic coating for the home comes with a 25 year warranty against cracking and peeling. You’ll never paint again.
  
What does elastomeric paint mean to you, then? Quality, durability, beauty and savings!  Call Rhino Shield of Georgia today for your free at-home estimate at 678-205-4500.
