Rhino Shield Wins Davey Promotions Award

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

davey-awardsWe’re thrilled that the awards keep coming. This time Rhino Shield has earned a 2015 Davey Award for Self Promotion.

According to their website, “The Davey Awards honors the best in Web, Design, Video, Advertising, Mobile and Social from Small Agencies Worldwide.”

Jeff Jahn of our website design agency, Dynamix Web Design, explains:

“The Davey Awards are an international creative award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small firms worldwide. The 2015 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms.

“David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. That is the sort of thing small agencies do every day. The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the “Creative David’s” where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not a “Giant’s” bankroll. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets.

“The review board represents a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms including: Code and Theory, Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Keller Crescent, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Worktank and Yahoo!, and many others.   Congratulations on winning this highly coveted award!”

Our Rhino Shield ceramic coating covers homes perfectly. Many thanks to our media magicians who help us cover all aspects of our marketing so perfectly.

‘Feel-Good’ House Siding

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

dry-rotAnother happy customer writes about our recent Rhino Shield house siding application:

“Dear Roxanne and Michelle,  Thank you so much for your help and patience! Everything looks great and it feels good to have this taken care of.  God Bless, K.S.”

A home is your most cherished possession. Weathering, expansion and contraction and settling, and even mold and mildew, rot and rust can weaken its exterior shell, leaving the home’s structure vulnerable to decay.  But like K.S., you can have peace of mind for years to come with a house siding application of durable, elastomeric Rhino Shield ceramic coating. It creates a tough yet beautiful barrier to all those outside elements. You’ll “have this taken care of” for at least 25 years – guaranteed. Now that’s something to feel good about.

 

A Special Thank You To Georgia Coatings

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

1-house-painter Another kind word to Georgia Coatings from one of our patrons. This is an excellent description of the painstaking precision our painters use in a job well done when applying exterior house paint. Thanks to you, too, Ms. Fletcher!: Dear Ms. Ecklund, Just wanted to send a special thank you from a completely satisfied customer! I was impressed with every part of my experience dealing with your company. The salesman, Jeff, was a professional and was able to answer all my questions and concerns and gave me a complete breakdown of the services to be provided under my contract. Everyone I spoke to in the office was friendly and helpful as I worked with selecting my color. The crew (John Sobers) that came out was outstanding. They worked very hard and were quiet. I was impressed with all the prep work done – covering the windows, removing shutters and drain spouts to paint behind/under and reinstalling, to keep paint off everything except the walls! They were extremely neat and cleaned everything up perfectly – I didn’t have to do a thing or pick up after them when they completed the job. Everyone that has seen my house has commented on the great job. I will most definitely recommend Rhino Shield by Georgia Coatings to everyone asking for recommendations for having their house painted. Sincerely, K. Fletcher Homeowner

Another satisfied customer writes about our Rhino Shield ceramic coating finish and high quality workmanship:

“Jeff [Ecklund],

Just wanted to say two things.  One,  Harold and his crew, (Joe and Greg) were superb.  They were professional and planned to please and do a good job.  We are pleased.  Second, the sign began to fall over by the wind, so I have taken it down and put it beside the house.  I have had two people stop by and ask about the job and we have given brochures to two others.  Pleased with the job.  J.C.”

Our professional exterior painting contractors take pride in their work. Even people passing by can see the difference in a quality finish. Thank you, J.C.!

Fall Is Prime Time For Exterior House Paint Contractors

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

RSpriming   Finally there is a soft, cool breeze blowing away the relentless burning heat of late summer, and little hints of the beauty of the changing seasons. At Georgia Coatings, we look forward to this time for another reason as well: it’s prime time for applying exterior house paint.

Not only is this the best weather for our Rhino Shield paint contractors to do their work comfortably and safely, but it is also the best time for the siding.

Homes expand and contract with extremes of weather changes. This moderate, dry weather relaxes your siding, making it the perfect canvas on which our paint contractors can work their magic.

This gentle breeze is also perfect for drying and curing of our Rhino Shield exterior house paint. Once it’s on, the house can bend and stretch all it wants. Rhino Shield is elastomeric. That means it will bend and stretch, expand and contact as your home shifts and weathers — for the next 25 years. You will never have to paint again.

Now is the time! Call us to schedule a free at-home estimate at 678-205-4500.

Atlanta Home ShowThanks to everyone who came out for the recent weekend home shows around the Atlanta area. It was good experience in training for the enormous 32nd Annual Fall Atlanta Home Show and Outdoor Expo, coming to the Cobb Galleria Centre September 11 through 13.

This is one exciting Atlanta event you don’t want to miss. Georgia Coatings will be right there in the midst of it to meet everyone and to demonstrate the amazing properties of Rhino Shield ceramic exterior siding paint at our display center.

We can actually show you how amazingly this ceramic coating works. This is your chance to ask lots of questions and to schedule your free home evaluation.

Our Georgia Coatings TV Appearance

Saturday, August 1st, 2015
Georgia Coatings’ own Jeff and Roxanne Ecklund made their appearance on WXIA’s Atlanta & Co. with Christine Pullara on July 20th.
Jeff and Roxanne explained the numerous benefits of their product, Rhino Shield ceramic coating. It’s not exterior house paint, but an ‘elastomeric’ (elasticized) ceramic ‘polymer’ that is 8 to 10 times thicker than normal house paint.
 Jeff explained that Rhino Shield lasts 25 years instead of the usual 5 to 10 because it keeps sun, rain and moisture vapors from penetrating and breaking down the substance of the coating. It goes on all substrates, taking on the texture of stucco, brick, etc. to retain its natural beauty. It is elastomeric – able to bend and stretch with expansion and contraction of the home during heat and cold weather. So it doesn’t bubble, blister, crack or peel. That’s backed up with a 25 year transferrable warranty that includes labor and materials.
It’s also Low-E rated, meaning that Rhino Shield ceramic coating keeps the air between the inside and the outside of the home closer to the inside temp, which results in a drop in heating and cooling bills in many cases.
In addition to modern day residences, Georgia Coatings specializes in Historical Renovation, repairing and protecting older homes and buildings such as churches. Their teams are EPA lead paint certified to work on homes older than 1978.
Whether it’s an old or new home, they treat it with the same care. First their team masks everything off and protects the plants. Then they sand, scrape, caulk, pressure wash, repaint and replace bad wood instead of covering over it. The next step is an adhesive sealer sprayed over the entire surface. Then comes the final layer of Rhino Shield in color.
Georgia Coatings is A Rated by the Atlanta Better Business Bureau. Take advantage of their 25% off summer special or 12 months same as cash. You can always call Georgia Coatings at 678-205-4500 for more information.
