Hilton Head, We Love You!

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Hilton Head is one of the most beautiful beach towns on the East Coast. It’s also one of America’s favorite islands. With long stretches of beautiful beaches, 24 golf courses, and tons of fascinating history, Hilton Head Island is a go to for vacationers all across the United States. It’s also home to over 40,000 people. That means thousands of homes are in need of durable, low maintenance coatings for their exteriors. Rhino Shield has the perfect solution!

Weather your home is stucco, cedar, hardiplank, or vinyl, our exterior coating will make your home look vibrant and fresh for the next 25 years! We even coat tabby shell stucco, a siding very common in the Hilton Head area (it’s to die for by the way).

If you’re a Hilton Head resident in need of a new coating for your home, we have just what you need! Our coating will keep your coastal home looking fresh for the next twenty five years, protecting it from not only the salt air, but the constant, powerful UV rays of the summer sun, as well as the moisture that comes from the surrounding ocean waters.

There are many factors that contribute to the gradual deterioration of a home’s exterior. These include the ultra-violet rays of the sun, humidity, mildew and fungi growth, as well as airborne salt and pollution. When your home is located on or near the beach, deterioration can occur 5-10 times faster than it would anywhere else.

At Rhino Shield, we offer our Rhino Shield Coating that has several advantages over other exterior paint brands currently on the market. Rhino Shield paint protects your home and helps it stay looking brand new for up to 25 years. Our coating has a Class A fire rating, resists UV light, air pollution, mildew, and lowers the rate of corrosion caused from salt air moisture that occurs as a result of coastal weather conditions.

Rhino Shield can adhere to all common exterior surfaces and reflect over 90% of the sun’s rays. And as most of you coastal homeowners know, the sun near the ocean is powerful all year around. Rhino Shield is also environmentally friendly (low-VOC) and non-toxic. It even has a ceramic base which means it will never chip or flake like other paint products tend to do.

If your a salt life fanatic, a beach bum, a Hilton Head resident, or property owner in the coastal area, we understand that the weather can wreak havoc on your beach home’s exterior. Salt damage is a constant concern for coastal homeowners. Our exterior paint will help protect your home as well as your investment for the next twenty five years. Give us a call today! We’ll be happy to help. And head over to Rhino Shield California for more information on the salty air.

Coastal Charm Draws Summer Vacationers

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Summer is fast approaching, and we can’t get enough of our beach styled homes along the coast of South Carolina and Georgia. Their transformations are absolutely incredible, and it’s been amazing to be a part of the process. We’ve seen a distressed house, revamped into a brand new home. We’ve used whites, creams, and coastal pastels to make properties look twice as big. We’ve even spruced up a few darker homes with brighter, more exotic colors helping restore energy and curb appeal to their exterior.

One of our favorites is this beachy blue bungalow, and although the color remained similar to its original, the new, fresh coat gave this home the pop of color it desperately needed to stand out amongst its neighbors! It’s easy on the eyes, and brings comfort to a home that had taken a hit from the surrounding salt air over the years. Our coating will keep this beauty looking fresh for the next twenty five years, protecting it from not only the salt air, but the constant, powerful UV rays of the summer sun, and moisture that comes from the surrounding ocean waters.

This Savannah home was originally painted a rustic orange/peach color that gave it a more Spanish feel, lacking the classic qualities of the surrounding location.  Out of place amongst its neighbors, the owners decided it was time for a change. The new pastel color brings this home back to its roots, restoring its southern coastal charm, and making it look twice as big as it did previously. With Rhino Shield’s coating, it is sure to withstand any mold and mildew issues it may have encountered before. We think this place would make for a gorgeous Bed & Breakfast! Now if only we could convince the owner…

We also are in love with this quaint coastal cottage. Filled with history, and charm, this beauty was simply in need of a fresh coat of paint, something that would last longer and protect it from the mold and mildew that come along with being near the water. We were happy to provide it with just that! Our coating made this stark white home look fresh and new, while protecting it from sun damage, and moist air. This home has a ton of character and we loved restoring it’s exterior, and bringing it back to life.

Just looking at these projects, makes us want to start planning a vacation!

Weather you have a taste for bright exotic colors, or soft pastels, Rhino Shield will bring you an end product that highlights the sweet southern charm of any coastal home from Hilton Head, South Carolina to Savannah, Georgia, all while protecting it’s exterior from all the things that come with being on the coast. No ordinary paint can promise that! We’re looking forward to the summer, and are excited to work with you on your coastal home!

summerrain In the Low Country of the coastal plains near our Rhino Shield exterior painting contractors offices in Savannah and Brunswick, Georgia, and Bluffton and Hilton Head, South Carolina, homeowners are getting ready for another hot, humid summer with almost daily afternoon showers and occasional tropical storms.

Now is the best time to go ahead and weatherize your coastal home before the season is completely underway, with ceramic insulating paint expertly applied by Rhino Shield exterior painting contractors.
