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.

Atlanta Home Improvement Interviews Jeff Ecklund

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Atlanta Home Show This week Atlanta Home Improvement online magazine airs a video in their “Show Stoppers” series highlighting some of the best exhibitors at last month’s Spring Atlanta Home Show.

In a nearly five minute interview, Georgia Coatings owner Jeff Ecklund explains why he is thrilled to use Rhino Shield ceramic coating in his business, and how he speaks from personal experience as a home-owner.

Ceramic coating is a thicker coating than paint, it is heat-resistant, with a Low E rating, meaning that heat bounces off of it, and it blocks out UV rays.

Ecklund says coating your home with Rhino Shield is like putting a layer of siding on it. Your home’s electric bills can be reduced by as much as 35% to 45%, making Rhino Shield a great investment for years to come. Georgia Coatings renews home exteriors throughout Georgia and the southeast. Watch Jeff at http://www.atlantahomeimprovement.com/blog/atlanta-exterior-painting-and-coating-company-rhino-shield.

Wintry Mix Damages Your Home’s Exterior Siding

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

wintrymix Wintry Mix. That’s the surprise package of gusting winds, rain, snow, sleet, ice and slush that suddenly descends on Atlanta and North Georgia when blasts of arctic winter air collide with the South’s early spring, seriously damaging your home’s exterior siding, especially wood siding, of which so many older homes in the South are made.

Your home’s exterior has been relaxing in the first warming sunlight of spring. But then cold rain blows into the exposed areas of the wood where your home’s exterior siding paint has cracked, chipped or peeled. When that rain ices, it expands rapidly, damaging the painted exterior and various substrates. As Atlanta’s weather warms again quickly before all the rain can fully dry off before the next invasion, mold and mildew build up in crevices left behind. Wood rot sets in. Metal substrates rust.

Repairing the damage to exposed exterior siding can cost a fortune. It’s best to be pro-active and weatherize your home investment now.
Rhino Shield ceramic coating beats any exterior paint as the best option to guard your home’s exterior siding. A team of our qualified experts will come to your home, repair the underlying damage, and then apply our beautiful and durable ceramic coating in a two-step process that will bond the ceramic coating tightly to your home’s siding, and cover it with a layer of elastomeric ceramic protection that is many times thicker than average house paint.

Rhino Shield’s ceramic microbeads bond together tightly to fend off the weather. The elastomeric properties of our ceramic coating bend and stretch as your home’s exterior expands and contracts with changing weather. And for those dear old Georgia homes, anti-mildew and anti-fungal ingredients in our coating’s thick emulsion to kill mold and protect your wood siding to preserve your home for many more years to come.

We are so sure of our product that it comes with a 25 year transferable warranty against cracking, peeling, or chipping. Don’t wait until there is more damage. Protect your home exterior siding now. We can get the process started this week.
