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!
