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.
