Chattanooga Sidings and the Rhino Shield Difference

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Chattanooga, the fourth largest city in Tennessee, is known as the Scenic City. With beautiful mountain views, and picturesque scenery, it’s popular for its outdoor life and booming downtown area. It’s thriving, and people all across the United States are beginning to call the gorgeous city of Chattanooga home.

Chattanooga is one of our favorite cities here at Rhino Shield, and we’re pros when it comes to all the popular sidings within the region. This includes masonite siding, stucco, brick and hardie board.

Hardie board has been around since we can remember, but its popularity comes and goes. Typically known for its low maintenance and long lasting durability, it can be found in just about any neighborhood in the Chattanooga area, including the one pictured below. This home’s siding was made up of every popular siding in the area including wood, lead paint, masonite, and hardie plank!

Most hardie board siding comes with a 50-year limited warranty. It is completely rot, fire, storm, and insect resistant. It even holds up well against the salt from the ocean. Color options are unlimited, so homeowners are able to be as traditional or as original as they please. If you’re not a fan of hardie board though, and prefer a different look, you still have several options.

Also popular within this area, are brick and stucco. Personally, we love the new trend of coating brick! You can’t go wrong with white. Even grey coatings on brick look fresh and up to date. Brick is incredibly low maintenance. It’s also weather resistant. There is no need to paint or perform the routine maintenance that is required by other sidings such as wood or vinyl.

As for stucco, it is an incredible insulator for both warm and cool air. It’s energy efficient and will save you boatloads on your monthly electric bill. Not to mention, its smooth, traditional look is second to none. Creativity is endless with stucco siding, and its innovation can’t be beat.

Finally, masonite siding, a lesser known but highly popular siding within the Chattanooga area, was first introduced for a low maintenance, low cost alternative to real wood siding. However, it’s durability fell short and it can no longer be found on the market. Here at Rhino Shield though, we’re willing to take on even the most difficult projects (for the most part), and that includes masonite!

So if you’re in the Chattanooga area and have any of the several sidings listed above on your home, or even ones that are not, give us a call. We’ll be happy to give you a quote for our long lasting coating that will give your home an amazing exterior for the next twenty five years or more!

But if you do, you’ll have two more opportunities in the month of March to get all the latest and greatest for your home. We’ll be rounding out the month at the Low Country Home & Garden Show in Bluffton, Georgia, as well as the Spring Atlanta Home Show in Atlanta.

Ceramic Coating For Tennessee Log Cabins And Cedar Homes

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

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.
