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!

Rhino Shield Wins Davey Promotions Award

davey-awardsWe’re thrilled that the awards keep coming. This time Rhino Shield has earned a 2015 Davey Award for Self Promotion.

According to their website, “The Davey Awards honors the best in Web, Design, Video, Advertising, Mobile and Social from Small Agencies Worldwide.”

The 2015 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms.

“David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. That is the sort of thing small agencies do every day. The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the “Creative David’s” where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not a “Giant’s” bankroll. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets.

“The review board represents a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms including: Code and Theory, Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Keller Crescent, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Worktank and Yahoo!, and many others.   Congratulations on winning this highly coveted award!”

Tell Us What You Think

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

benefitsWe’re excited to be winning advertising awards and to be gaining community recognition. But our greatest reward is the satisfaction of our customers for a job well done.

We’d like to hear from you. What can we do to help you make the decision to invest in our Rhino Shield ceramic coating instead of acrylic paint or vinyl siding for your house siding options?

Rhino Shield comes with a 25 year warranty. Normally, regular acrylic paint must be applied every three to five years. So Rhino Shield is well worth the investment when you are looking at house siding options. You never paint again!

First we pressure wash your home and make repairs to the substrate, followed by taping windows and trim, and putting protective sheeting over the plants. Then we apply a primer sealer coating that blocks UV rays, protects against water, and has anti-mold and mildew ingredients.

After this dries properly, we apply the color coat of Rhino Shield ceramic coating, which is made of tiny microbeads. These microbeads help protect your house siding from hot sun, wind and rain, and cold weather. It also has elastomeric properties — that means the coating is pliable, able to bend, expand and contract as the house settles over the years and as weathering causes siding to expand and contract.

Ask us more. Let us know what we can tell you about house siding options to give you all the knowledge you need to make the best decision.

‘Feel-Good’ House Siding

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

dry-rotAnother happy customer writes about our recent Rhino Shield house siding application:

“Dear Roxanne and Michelle,  Thank you so much for your help and patience! Everything looks great and it feels good to have this taken care of.  God Bless, K.S.”

A home is your most cherished possession. Weathering, expansion and contraction and settling, and even mold and mildew, rot and rust can weaken its exterior shell, leaving the home’s structure vulnerable to decay.  But like K.S., you can have peace of mind for years to come with a house siding application of durable, elastomeric Rhino Shield ceramic coating. It creates a tough yet beautiful barrier to all those outside elements. You’ll “have this taken care of” for at least 25 years – guaranteed. Now that’s something to feel good about.

 

Which Exterior Paint Colors Are Right For You?

With some 1500 shades of exterior paint to choose from, it may be a delightful challenge to plan your Rhino Shield makeover. Do you want your home to stand out as a masterpiece, blend peacfully into its surroundings, or perhaps match its original tones if it is a heritage home? Not to worry. We have specialists who can help.

Georgia Coatings Owner Roxanne Ecklund explains:

“When there is a problem with color choices, they [clients] can get assistance from a decorator, or I can assist in guiding them in how to look at colors. But hiring a decorator will give them guidance as well.

“There are many factors to work with and look at, from roof color to trees around the house that will play on color. If they have brick, they may want to play off the color of the mortar in the brick. That is usually a good starting point.

“If they have stone, then picking a color in the stone they would like to accent, whether it be a gray color on a redddish brown color —  choosing one color to pull out is a good place to start.

“Getting color samples from any paint store is acceptable. We can match any color to about 95%.  All exterior paint stores use different colorants and that will affect how our color comes out as well.”

Once you choose your main exterior paint, it’s time to create a color scheme using accent colors for doors, trim and shutters.

The most important rule here is to stay within a palette of either cool tones or warm tones. Cool tones have a blue or steel gray base color; warm tones have a yellowish base. That doesn’t mean, for example, that if you pick warm tones, you are limited to red/brown/orange/yellow. Look very closely at blues, greens and whites. You’ll see that some are kind of yellowish. They will look fine in combination with the above.

Again, we can help you with the entire color scheme. Look at the bottom of our home page for  some suggested color schemes to start with. Then give us a call or talk to your decorator. It’s amazing — with the right color scheme, any home can look elegant.

Another satisfied customer writes about our Rhino Shield ceramic coating finish and high quality workmanship:

“Jeff [Ecklund],

Just wanted to say two things.  One,  Harold and his crew, (Joe and Greg) were superb.  They were professional and planned to please and do a good job.  We are pleased.  Second, the sign began to fall over by the wind, so I have taken it down and put it beside the house.  I have had two people stop by and ask about the job and we have given brochures to two others.  Pleased with the job.  J.C.”

Our professional exterior painting contractors take pride in their work. Even people passing by can see the difference in a quality finish. Thank you, J.C.!
