Cedar Homes Bring Travelers to the Mountains

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Many times when we think of the mountains, we think of the crisp fall air, or the light snowfall of a cold December night. What we fail to realize is that summer months are prime time for mountain travel. With perfect weather, and endless outdoor activities, cabin fever can hit just about any time of year!

Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to work on several gorgeous rustic mountain homes, freshening up or revamping their entire exterior. We’ve done this all while protecting the homes from frigid winter temperatures and outside elements that eat away at ordinary paint products!

One of our proudest projects is this mountain cabin that went from drab to dreamy overnight! It’s original color was dark and worn, but the new cedar toned coating brought this cabin back to life. Surrounded by gorgeous scenery, we think that wrap around porch is the perfect place to spend an evening basking in the beauty of the night sky, or sharing a morning cup of coffee with family and friends.


It truly is amazing what a little color can do to a home. This dreary, worn down farmhouse appears to have doubled in size with its new white exterior. It’s cheerful, bright, and incredibly welcoming. And this look is guaranteed to last for the next twenty five years! Surrounded by acres of gorgeous land, this southern gem looks to be the perfect place for a peaceful weekend getaway. And lets face it, we all could use a break from the real world every once in a while.


The best way to escape reality? This shabby chic cottage. With a touch of New England flare, this mountain home is truly unique, standing out amongst its neighbors. Its fresh new coating gave this home the splash of color it desperately needed to make a name for itself. And boy, did it do just that! Its warm undertones and charming style takes us back to the comfort of our childhood, when times were different, and life was a little bit more magical. This whimsical cottage is truly the perfect place to spend an evening outside, chasing the glow of firefly lights at dusk.


This mountain home revampted its outdated exterior with a fresh updated cedar coating that’s durable, long lasting, and has become extremely popular in recent years. This cabin looks brand new, and makes a statement even from a mile away! With beautiful curb appeal, and fantastic mountain views, who would ever want to leave?


From Blue Ridge to Blood Mountain, and Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge, the North Georgia and Tennessee Mountain areas are a perfect place to plan your upcoming summer vacation. With endless trails, and countless activities including white water rafting, horseback riding, and lazy river rentals, you’ll never run out of things to do. We could all stand to put down our phones, and reconnect with each other, and the beautiful outdoors.

For those of you who already call the mountains home, or have a vacation home nearby, Rhino Shield has everything you need to protect your home from outside elements that tend to eat through and destroy regular paint products. If you’re in need of a fresh or updated exterior, Rhino Shield is here to help! We won’t let you down.

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! So if you own a rental property along the Georgia or South Carolina Coast, or if your private residence is in need of a splash of color, a brighter hue, or a fresh coast of paint to prepare for the upcoming summer season, Rhino Shield has hundreds of color options that are sure to catch the eye of vacationers across the country!

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!
