Coated Brick: The Next Big Thing

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

With the rise in popularity of shows like HGTV’s Fixer Upper and Flip Or Flop, we’ve seen a spike in the number of clients painting or coating their home’s brick exterior. And Rhino Shield is loving this new trend just as much as our clients are.

This new craze brings a hint of modern flare to any type of home, and we are swooning at the finished product. So are two of our most recent clients who gave Rhino Shield rave reviews saying, “This crew was incredible. They worked so hard every day to transform this home- we are extremely pleased with their work and will readily promote Rhino Shield and the entire process.”

Some of the more popular colors include varying shades of grey, cream, and white (like our most recent client’s chose). The transformation is stunning! Brick coatings turn typical brick houses into¬† stunningly elegant, and unique homes. The finished products are incredible but it’s no easy feat to transform these brick homes.

Brick is unique and special steps must be taken to ensure homes are fully protected. Brick, much like human skin, contains pores. Some brick is more porous than others. If a home has very porous brick, Rhino Shield must first apply a block filler to help fill in these pours for a smoother texture. After the brick is coated, it must be sprayed and back rolled to ensure any cracks and crevices are completely filled in. This gives homes the opportunity to take full advantage of the Rhino Shield product.

Rhino Shield is classified as a Low E Coating, helping lower the cost of energy bills, as well as protecting your home from outside elements for the next twenty five years. If you’re interested in coating your brick home with our product, give us a call. We are incredibly excited about this new craze, and can’t wait to hear from you soon!
