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!

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:

Randall- (770) 480-6173

Say Goodbye to Pollen

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Pollen season has finally come to an end and if you’re anything like us, we’re more than pleased to say goodbye to runny noses, sore throats, and itchy eyes. We can even take our car to get washed without worrying weather or not it will turn yellow again the next day!

What many of us fail to realize though, is that it’s not just people that are affected by pollen, it’s our homes too! Now is the perfect time to get out there and power wash your home. Powering washing should be done once a year to keep your home looking fresh and clean.

Power washing the surface of your home helps free it of dirt, mold, and mildew. It also helps get rid of tannin stains caused by surrounding trees, leaves, and sticks, as well as rubber marks from tires, oil, and irrigation rust. All these things can cause serious health risks for you and your family, so a yearly cleaning benefits you as much as it does your home.

Power washing helps maintain the value of your home, and in some cases can even increase the value of your property. It’s the easiest and most affordable way to maintain your home’s value for future sales. If you’re short on time, like so many of us are these days, check out the pressure washing services near you. Georgia has a ton of options including:

 

JPS Handyman

Oh Improvements & Painting

DA Kirkland Contracting

Dillard Construction

Proview Window Cleaning Services

Foreman Roofing and Repairs

M&C Pressure Washing

Russel Property Services

 

If you’re an existing customer, contact Rhino Shield for a quote on power washing and any questions you may have about cleaning the exterior of your home! We’ll be happy to help.

Rhino Shield is an outstanding company that produces incredible products. We are honored to be a part of such an outstanding, reputable brand and even more humbled to have been named the number two volume producing Rhino Shield dealer in the country. What an accomplishment!

In addition, Rhino Shield by Georgia Coatings was awarded with both the 2016 Rhino Shield Gold Quality Award and the 2016 Rhino Shield Growth Award, two awards we have received every year since 2009. The Gold Quality Award, one given to only those branches who have maintained an A rating with both the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List, is one award we are incredibly proud of.

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!

Reward Yourself with a Rhino Shield Referral

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

October is creeping up fast, and we all know what that means! Cool weather, crisp air, boots, scarves, and pumpkin spice lattes. Before we know it, winter will be here, and our homes will be fighting frigid temperatures and winter storms. Now is the time to hunker down and take care of your home with a new exterior coating from Rhino Shield.

It’s low in maintenance, but high in value. It’s fire resistant, and protects your home from outside elements, especially the extreme temperatures and dry air that tend to come along with the upcoming winter season. Remind your friends and family to take care of their home before it’s too late, or too cold and we’ll send a little gift your way when they come in to see us!

Rhino Shield counts on our happy customers for positive advertising, and they never seem to let us down. So as a thank you, we’ve designed a program that rewards our customers for referring the names and contact information of friends, neighbors, relatives, and even those random strangers they just can’t help but tell about our amazing products.

For each one of your referrals, you will receive a gift certificate to a place of your choice for up to 3% of the sales price on their purchase. Some of our most popular gift certificates come from Home Depot and Lowes, but if you’d rather have a nice evening out with your husband, wife, or children, we can certainly do that too! And if you choose to forgo the gift certificate, Rhino Shield will donate that money instead to a charity of your choice. What better way to give back during the holiday season?

Our customers are having a lot of fun with our referral program, and so are we! Make sure to send everyone our way before the winter months hit, because who couldn’t use a little extra spending money for Christmas presents? Am I right?
