Happy Father’s Day from Rhino Shield

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Father’s Day is Sunday, and boy did it sneak up on us quickly this year! If you’re out scrounging around for last minute gift ideas, fear not! Rhino Shield is here to help, and what better way to say thank you to your dear ole dad, than with a new paint job for the exterior of your home? That’s one less thing he’ll have to worry about, and really, what dad couldn’t use a break from all that manual labor that comes with being a homeowner?

Not in need of a paint job? We have several other services that can help lighten the load for your dad as well. Make sure to contact us with any questions. We’ll be happy to help.

If your budget is a little bit smaller, that’s okay! Here are a few other gift ideas that dad is sure to love:

  1. Home Depot Gift Card- Because what dad doesn’t love free money to spend at a home improvement store?
  2. Paintball- We all know that men never fully grow up. And what better way to bring out dad’s inner child than with a day out playing paintball? Plus, he’ll enjoy the extra quality time with the ones he loves.
  3. Man Cave Decorations- Is dad in need of some new decor for his hide away space? Head over to Boys Fort to order some incredibly unique and masculine decor, perfect for an office or man cave! They’re run locally out of Portland, Oregon so you know you’ll find something quirky and interesting for the greatest man in your life.

Here at Rhino Shield, we have several fathers we’d like to give a special shout out and thank you to! Your hard work, loving hearts, and goofy spirits are loved and enjoyed by all those who come in to contact with you.

Jeff could not be any prouder to call this young woman, Jessica, his daughter.  He speaks to everyone with great pride of Jessica, including customers! Jessica adores her dad, and looks up to him with great respect as a role model for hard work and success, as well as love and laughter.

Tim is the father of Shelby, our Social Media Director, and she could not be prouder to call him dad. He is an incredibly hard worker, and has taught her so much about life over the past 25 years. He is adventurous, and has a quirky sense of humor. She is honored to have him as a father.


Shaun comes from a blended family, and treats each child as his own. He is an awesome example of respect and love.  Shaun does a great job in and out of the office, and we are proud to have him as our project manager. He truly is the definition of class.


Gilbert not only has two sons, but a grandchild as well. Originally from Puerto Rico, Gilbert now resides in Georgia. He is an incredibly hard worker, but is working his way towards retirement, and will be leaving us in the near future. We are happy to have had him with us over the last ten years, and wish him nothing but the best after retirement.


To all the other Rhino Shield dads out there, we are forever grateful for what you do for our company, your children, and your families. Happy Father’s Day everyone. Enjoy the weekend, and relax! You deserve it!

Happy Mother’s Day from Rhino Shield

Friday, May 6th, 2016

Mother’s Day is just a few short days away, and we’re hoping by now that you’ve found the perfect gift for the woman who has put up with all your nonsense over the years. Because let’s be honest, kids can be pretty difficult at times. Yet even at our worst, our moms still find a way to love us. Sometimes we take for granted all that our moms do, and we forget that they are complete and total rockstars. They work, they cook, they clean the entire house. They run a million different errands for a million different people, all while being patient, kind, graceful, nurturing, loving, and completely selfless. The least we can do is celebrate them on the one day a year made to do just that! Mother’s Day is our opportunity to show them  how appreciated and loved they truly are.

For those of you who tend to be procrastinators, here’s a couple of gift ideas we know all the moms out there will love.

  1. A Day at the Spa- What woman doesn’t love a good massage, facial, or mani/pedi? Massage Envy has branches located all over the United States, but make sure to check out your local Spas too!
  2. Volcano Candles- If you haven’t heard of these heavenly scented candles, you’re missing out. They may be a tad bit pricy, but they’re worth it. Anthropologie is always stocked full of them, and if they don’t fit perfectly within your budget, that’s okay! They have a ton of great smelling alternatives.
  3. Personalized Necklaces- We love supporting local businesses, and what’s better than adding a sentimental touch to an already beautiful gift? Stamped & Finch, owned by Brookwood graduate Lindsey Warren,  creates hand stamped and customized jewelry and accessories, and is the perfect gift for all of the moms out there. With only a few days until Mother’s Day, make sure to put in those orders with her ASAP.
  4. Magnolia Market– Chip and Joanna Gaines, of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, have an entire market full of dreamy home décor. And if you don’t have time to fly out to Waco, Texas, you can order the perfect gift for mom at their online store. They have everything from cake stands to wall art, and tea towels to t-shirts.
  5. Rhino Shield Exterior Home Makeover- We couldn’t resist! Although women many times tend to focus more of their attention on the interior of their homes, let’s face it, it all starts with the exterior. So we’re here to give the mom in your life the perfect facelift for the exterior of her home, one that will last 25 years! Now that’s pretty awesome.

Here at Rhino Shield, we have several moms who we think are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Roxanne Ecklund, owner of Rhino Shield, is mother to Jessica, who currently attends college in Savannah, Georgia and is a part of the United States Army Reserves.


Christina Grant is one of the newest members of the Rhino Shield team, and is a mommy-to-be! Christina, a Brookwood High School graduate, is 19 years old and expecting a beautiful baby boy in late August. We know she’s going to be a wonderful mother, and are so excited for her and her fiancé who plan to get married in early 2017.


Beth, the mother of Shelby Castagna, our Social Media Director, is in her words, “a superhero.” It doesn’t matter how old we are, we’ll always need our moms.


Shaun, Rhino Shield’s Project Manager, and his wife of four years, Nicole have a beautifully blended family. Nicole is the manager of Anytime Fitness in Dacula, Georgia and is both a dedicated wife and mother to their three children.


We have several other mothers who are a part of our Rhino Shield family. We’d like to wish them, and all of the Mothers and Mommys-To-Be out there a very Happy Mother’s Day. We appreciate all that you do for your children, and hope that today is relaxing, and stress free. You deserve it!
