Friday, October 26th, 2018

Our clients have been so pleased with the professional painting contractors and high quality exterior paint that they can’t stop writing about it. Here are some of the reviews about Rhino Shield our customers have been sharing online.

High Quality Products and Service

“I just want to say thank you for the great job the crew did on my home and the cleanup afterwards. It looks as good (but is actually better) as it did when it was completed by [another company] in late 2003. I’m sharing how happy I am with all my friends via Facebook. Wish I could add pictures with this review to show it off. Thanks again, Jackie Allen.”

Our service does not end with the paint job. Painting contractors make sure to finish what we started and leave your home tidy.

Keeping a Clean Work Site

“Super fantastic. We recently had the front of my house done by Georgia Coatings, a Rhino Shield company. I was very concerned before going with them. As a curious consumer, I did my research online. Went to different sites and reviewed the good and the bad. When Mr. Eckland came over to do his pitch, I pretty much have all the answers. This gentleman did not push the sale but asked my wife and I to think about it. I must say that the price is about twice as much of the price of what we paid in the prior years. But it is worth it considering the 25 year warranty. The crew is always on time. They did their work and cleaned up after themselves. I highly recommend their work. I am very grateful for Mr. Eckland for having a great crew to do work and apply Rhino Shield. I highly recommend their work.”

It’s important that we go over the entire process with you up front. You get a crash course in how the application process should go and the products that the painting contractors will use. That way you know what to expect during your exterior paint job.

Bringing New Life to Old Homes

“My house is 40 years old and was beginning to show its age -even though it was the recipient of constant care and maintenance. I am 80 years of age and had recently been unable to maintain the pace required to keep the place up. Now, however, with the advent of Rhino Shield ceramic coatings, my house looks new once again and its appearance belies its age – subject, of course, to architectural changes over the past four decades. My expectation is that it will continue to do so for the balance of my lifetime and that of my eldest son who will continue to reside here. I am delighted with the appearance of my house; it has not looked this good since it was first built.” —Dwight A. from Winston, GA

Wow! What a difference the right exterior paint can make. It’s refreshing to know we are making people happy with great service and professional painting contractors.

Rhino Shield is the Best Paint for HardiPlank

Friday, October 12th, 2018

Many homeowners have embraced HardiPlank over traditional siding. If you are one of the many homeowners who’ve made this decision, you may be wondering about the best paint for HardiPlank. RhinoShield is the answer. Here’s what you need to know.

What Is HardiPlank?

HardiPlank is fiber-cement siding. It features a blend of cellulose fibers and cement. It is a long lasting alternative to Masonite, and unlike Masonite, it doesn’t rot due to sun exposure. Often, homeowners choose HardiPlank when they don’t want to deal with the upkeep of wood siding or when they live in an area where wood is threatened by termites. Additionally, homeowners who don’t like the inexpensive look of vinyl siding also tend to gravitate toward HardiPlank.

Although HardiPlank has been around for over a decade, it’s still a relatively new option in the world of home siding, and many people are still trying to identify the best paint for HardiPlank.

 

Why Choose Rhino Shield for HardiPlank?

Rhino Shield is more than an exterior paint. It’s an innovative coating for your home, and it enhances many of the benefits you are already getting from your HardiPlank siding. HardiPlank is fire resistant, and Rhino Shield also has a class A fire and smoke rating, making it the perfect complement to HardiPlank siding.

On top of that, HardiPlank is a relatively green product because no toxic materials are used in its production. If you like the idea of being as green as possible with your home, Rhino Shield is also a great complement to your eco-friendly home because it is also non-toxic, is safe for skin contact, and can be disposed of in solid waste landfills. Most paints are so toxic that you can’t throw them away. Additionally, Rhino Shield produces fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than most exterior paints.

 

Investing in Your Home’s Exterior with Quality Products

Another reason that Rhino Shield is the best paint for HardiPlank is that both Rhino Shield and HardiPlank are investments into your home’s exterior. HardiPlank tends to be more expensive than wood or vinyl siding, but it’s also longer lasting and more durable. In that same vein, Rhino Shield may be more expensive than other exterior paint options, but this product is an investment into your home which saves you money in the long run.

Generally, when you hire painting contractors to put traditional exterior paint on your home, you have to paint again in about five years. With Rhino Shield, the paint lasts. In fact, you get a 25-year warranty. During that time, the paint should continue to make your HardiPlank look beautiful and colorful.

 

Rhino Shield Works on Every Surface

When you decide that Rhino Shield is the best paint for HardiPlank, you get all the advantages of Rhino Shield, but you also get an entirely oordinated home. Rhino Shield works on any surface. If you have a mixture of HardiPlank, brickwork, wood trim, metal flashing, and other elements on your home, you don’t have to worry about finding a separate type of paint for each material. Instead, you can paint the entire home with Rhino Shield.

Rhino Shield is the Best Paint for Brick

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Painting brickwork can be challenging. Standard exterior paints don’t stick well to bricks, and as a result, the paint often ends up flaking or simply not looking that nice. If you want your brickwork to look beautifully painted, you need the best paint for brick, and that’s Rhino Shield. Here’s why.

best paint for brick

 

Ceramic Paint Coating

The reason Rhino Shield is the best paint for brick is because it’s not actually a paint. Instead, it’s an innovative ceramic coating that can bond to brick just as easily as it can stick to other surfaces. When you choose Rhino Shield, you can use this single solution on your entire home including garage doors, wood or vinyl siding, stucco, and of course, brick.

 

Broad Functionality

Rhino Shield doesn’t just give your bricks a new color. Instead, it offers a number of different functions to your home. It repels water, ideal for areas that have a lot of driving rain or salty ocean air. It also improves the insulation of your brick work, helping to improve the energy efficiency of your home, and it has a class “A” fire rating.

 

25-Year Warranty

The Brick Industry Association recommends repainting brick every three to five years, but when you choose Rhino Shield, you don’t have to repaint at nearly that rate. Instead, Rhino Shield can last for decades. In fact, when you use this best paint for brick, you receive a 25-year warranty. This warranty applies to all surfaces of your home, not just the brickwork, and the paint should look just as good after 20 years as it does on the first day.

 

Multiple Colors Available

If you go to a hardware store and look for the best paint for brick, you may find just a limited selection. In contrast, with Rhino Shield, you can choose a variety of colors. In fact, you can even customize the exact color you want to ensure that your brickwork perfectly matches your home and the look you’re going for. Because this paint can be applied to any material, you can paint your entire home the same color, regardless of which type of underlying material you’re dealing with.

 

More Than Just the Best Paint for Brick

When you choose Rhino Shield, you are getting more than just the best paint for brick. You are also getting an extensive application process that safeguards the future condition of your home. In particular, when you hire Rhino Shield of Georgia to paint your brickwork, we work through a 12-step process to ensure your brick and the rest of your home look as beautiful as possible. We start with a thorough inspection. Then, we power wash the brick with a fungicide to ensure that we don’t trap any unwanted fungus beneath the paint. Then, we do repairs, apply painters’ tape, put on the primer, and add the final coat. Finally, we do touch ups and detail work as needed.

7 Tips for Selecting the Best Exterior House Paint

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

Occasionally, every homeowner needs to repaint their home, and instead of reaching for the same brand of paint you always use, you may want to take some time to look for the best exterior house paint. How do you determine which paint is the best? Make sure it meets the following qualifications.

Look for a Wide Range of Color Options

Ideally, your home should reflect your personal sense of style, and to make that possible, you need to choose an exterior paint that comes in a wide range of different colors. The best exterior house paint options usually let you customize a color. RhinoShield exterior paint features a color palette with a variety of different hues and if none of those suit you, we can also match colors from Home Depot, Sherwin Williams, Porter, Pittsburg, Valspar, and Behr.

 

Opt for Exterior Paint That Works on Multiple Surfaces

Unfortunately, a lot of exterior paint only works well on wood or other popular materials. In contrast, the best exterior house paint can go on almost any type of surface including vinyl, brick, and stucco. That lets you update your wood siding, but also your brickwork, metal flashing, garage doors in a variety of materials, and multiple other surfaces.

 

Choose Paint That Promises to Last

Generally, homeowners have to repaint their homes every 3-5 years or so, subject to the type of siding you have. Now, there are exterior paints that can last up to 25 years. If you just want to sit back and enjoy your home without worrying about the need to constantly repaint, you may want to opt for a paint that lasts a long time.

 

Insist on a Warranty

That said, if a paint is truly going to last, its manufacturers should be willing to back up that claim with a warranty. Ideally, you want a warranty that covers both the labor and the paint. Then, if the paint ever chips or has other issues, you can get it done for free. On top of that, you should look for a transferable warranty. That means the warranty stays intact, even if you sell your home to someone else.

 

Look for Additional Features

The best exterior house paint isn’t really paint at all. Rather, it’s a contemporary improvement on paint that is actually a ceramic coating. This type of paint does more than just change the color of your home. It also insulates your home, adds some fire-protective capabilities, and resists damage from salty air. Read more about the great benefits of ceramic paint.

 

Go Green

While you want your home to look great, you don’t want that to hurt the environment. If possible, look for exterior paint that promises to be green. The painters should be able to remove lead following EPA guidelines, and the paint itself should have low levels of VOCs.

 

Work With Quality Painting Contractors

Once you find the best exterior house paint, you need quality contractors to apply it for you. Top notch painting contractors go over your home and make repairs before they get started. Then, they apply the paint in a professional and timely matter. You don’t have to worry about the color from the siding bleeding onto the trim, or paint for the wood shutters getting on your brickwork. When you choose quality painting contractors, they ensure the job is done correctly.

 

If the above descriptions sound like the best exterior house paint for you, you need Rhino Shield. This paint improves your home, comes in a range of colors, and features a 25-year warranty. To learn more, contact us today.

Protect Your Home From Summer Heat with New Roof Paint

Monday, April 30th, 2018

With the summer approaching, you’re probably doing all sorts of spring cleaning and yard maintenance to get your home ready for the season, and in addition to your regular to-do list, you might want to consider investing in roof paint. Painting your roof with Rhino Shield offers a host of benefits.

roof paint

Sun Blocking Benefits of Roof Paint

Your roof is a huge area that is often directly exposed to the sun. Traditionally, a lot of roofs are dark colors, which attracts a lot of sun. As the roof heats up in the sun, a lot of that heat goes into your home. That, of course, increases the temperature in your home, causing your air conditioner to run all the time. Ultimately, that leads to wasted energy and high utility bills.

Rhino Shield roof paint helps to disrupt this process. With this roof paint, you can turn your roof a light color, which instantly encourages sunlight to bounce off rather than to get absorbed. On top of that, this paint’s unique formula has sunblock capabilities built in, regardless of the color you choose.

 

A Variety of Roof Paint Options

When you decide to use Rhino Shield roof paint, you get a variety of options. That makes it easy to meet the unique needs of your home, office, or commercial building. In particular, here are some of the options:

  • Red Iron Oxide for metal roofs
  • Rhino Clear Protective Waterproof Sealer for asphalt roofs
  • Super Shield Roof One Coat

 

Protection Against Rust

Unfortunately, with metal roofs, rust can be a concern. To protect your roof, you should add a coating of red iron oxide. This waterproof barrier prevents water from getting to the metal and leading to rust.

 

Waterproofing

When you opt for the sealer, this helps to protect your residential roof. Although rust is not an issue in this situation, asphalt shingles can be very hospitable to mold or mildew. The clear coat option is great on asphalt shingles.  You can also use this coating on log cabin metal roofs. The clear coat has a great sheen to hit in solid or clear.

 

Roof Paint That Insulates

In addition to blocking the sun’s harsh rays and protecting against rust, some roof paints actually insulate your roof. In particular, the Durable Finish Coat fills this role. That can be useful both in the summer and the winter. During the summer, it keeps the heat outside, while in the winter, this roof paint helps to keep the cold out.

 

Works on Multiple Surfaces

The Super Shield Roof One Coat works on a range of different surfaces including concrete, asphalt, primed metal, and tile. Regular paint doesn’t stick to many of these surfaces, but this roof paint is different. It is made of elastomeric ceramic that can stick to almost anything, and as it seals your roof, it can also work as an alternative to reroofing.

Best Stucco Paint for Homes

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

When it’s time to choose the best stucco paint for your home, you may find that painting contractors offer varying opinions about the kind of paint that should be used. One contractor may recommend a durable, commercial-grade elastomeric paint (a thicker, rubbery material). Another painter may suggest 100% acrylic paint, and may disagree with the aesthetic choice of using a heavier material on residential exteriors. What to do? Here is some information to help you choose the right paint for your home’s stucco exterior.

Weather Resistant Stucco Paint

Consider your climate. Homes in hot, dry, sunny regions need stucco paint that is especially resistant to cracking and fading. Desert areas further require exceptionally dirt-resistant paints. Homes in humid, warm regions require mildew-resistant exterior coating materials.

The Longest Lasting Stucco Paint

The best stucco paint for your home’s exterior depends on the age and condition of the stucco, and whether or not it has been painted in the past. Ask your Georgia Coatings painting contractor for recommendations of paint materials.

New Stucco — Use a water-based sealant formulated for stucco applications. Then, apply two coats of water-based paint. Use a high-quality acrylic exterior house paint for optimum adhesion and color retention and for the longest lasting exterior protection.

Old Stucco — Wash faded surfaces and then apply two coats of exterior paint. Acrylic paint will provide satisfactory longevity of paint protection for old stucco exterior surfaces. A thicker elastomeric paint, or a blend of it, is recommended for painting older stucco. It provides maximum adhesion of paint material to deteriorating stucco and creates a more impenetrable surface. The elasticity of the heavier coating makes it ideal for filling the thin cracks and pinholes that are common in aging stucco.

Previously-Painted Stucco — Previously painted stucco must be cleaned to remove all loose paint, dirt, and dusty or powdery film (caused by minerals in the stucco leaching out to the surface). Power washing is recommended as the most efficient approach to surface preparation. Then, paint the stucco with either an elastomeric or acrylic paint.

 

Rhino Shield

We provide exterior paint that is guaranteed to last for 25 years or longer.  Rhino Shield is a high-grade paint that lasts longer, saving homeowners the cost of repainting every 3 – 10 years, as is normally necessary with less durable paints that fade or wear off of weathered exterior stucco surfaces.

  • A Multi-Layered Coating of Protection — Rhino Shield is a durable, low-maintenance, water-resistant acrylic-urethane coating.
  • Innovative Technology — The advanced Rhino Shield formula combines multiple strength-building resins, to form a tough, flexible membrane that bonds thoroughly to the substrate.
  • Multiple Additives — The thick Rhino Shield coating is fire resistant, and it blocks damaging UV rays that deteriorate exterior surfaces. This highly-defensive formula also includes algaecides, mildew inhibitors, and other Rhino Shield proprietary protective agents.

You Have Choices for Exterior Siding Paint

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Is your siding fading? Are you tired of the current color of your home? Then, it’s time to paint your siding. Wondering how to paint your exterior siding? Here are some of the options to explore.

1. Best Paint for Vinyl Siding

If your exterior siding is made of vinyl, you may think that you can’t paint it, and in the past, that was unfortunately the case. However, through the years, paint manufacturers have developed paint that is specifically designed for use on vinyl siding. This paint tends to be made of a blend of urethane and acrylic resins, which helps the paint to adhere to the vinyl and resist fading.

 

2. Paint for Aluminum Siding

Metal is becoming an increasingly popular option for exterior siding, and if your siding is made of metal, you need special paint that can adhere to that. Unfortunately, paint for metal siding often has limited colors, and you need to do extensive prep work to ensure the paint sticks well to the metal.

 

3. The Right Paint for Wood Siding

The great news about wood siding is that it tends to be the easiest type of external siding to paint. You can paint wood siding almost any color, and you can use either latex or oil-based paints. If you like, you can even opt to skip the paint and just use stain, a wood finish, and a sealant.

 

4. Paint for Fiberglass Siding

If you have fiberglass siding, you generally need to repaint on a regular basis. While the color of vinyl siding is integrated into the actual vinyl, the color of fiberglass siding is only on the outside layer, and it tends to chip and flake frequently. On a periodic basis, you may need to apply a primer designed for use with fiberglass, and then, you can paint the fiberglass your desired color.

 

5. Paint for Brick Siding

With brick siding, you need to use porous paint. That allows the brick to breathe through the paint, which can be essential to preventing damage and safeguarding the lifespan of your brick work. Depending on the color you choose for your home, you may also need to use a primer to ensure the brick color doesn’t bleed through the paint.

 

6. Paint Tips for Stucco Siding

Many people like to let the natural color of the stucco shine through, but in some cases, paint can be essential to revitalize the color of the stucco. To paint stucco exterior siding, you often need to start by repairing broken stucco, and then, you can follow that up with a coat of paint. Note, however, that stucco absorbs a lot of paint, and you need to plan accordingly.

 

7. Best Paint for All Exterior Siding

Rather than using multiple types of paint on your home, consider choosing a product like Rhino Shield. More than just exterior paint, Rhino Shield is an innovative coating that adds color as well as fire resistance, protection from mold and mildew, and insulation to your home. This exterior siding paint is non-toxic, and it has low VOCs. Best of all, it’s guaranteed not to fade or chip for 25 years, and it comes with a 25-year warranty.

 

If you want an exterior paint that can work on a wide range of exterior sidings, you need Rhino Shield. Contact us today to learn more about our products and why Rhino Shield is better than other exterior paint options.

How Rhino Shield Paints Siding for House Renovations

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Tired of your home’s color? Does the siding for your house look old? If so, it may be time for repainting. To get a color that lasts the test of time, consider Rhino Shield. Here’s how this innovative exterior paint works on siding.

 

Paint That Works on Siding

Siding can be challenging to paint. In fact, many people think that it’s impossible to paint vinyl siding. Luckily, that is not the case. You just need to find the right paint. Rhino Shield is perfect. This special exterior paint works on almost any material including wood, vinyl, metal, and even brick. Of course, it works perfect on all siding for houses as well.

 

The Perfect Color

You may think that if you have to purchase special exterior paint to go on your home’s siding that you won’t be able to find the color you want. Luckily, with Rhino Shield, that is not the case. You can get exactly the color you want. To get an idea of the possible colors, look at our color palette.

 

The Right Preparation

Once you’re armed with the right paint, you need to prep the area. At Rhino Shield, whether you want to paint your home’s siding or anything else, we always use a multi-stepped process, that starts with prep work.

Usually, we start by looking over the home for any necessary repair issues. For instance, if your siding is falling away from your house, we reattach it. Then, we clean the siding. If you hire painting contractors who don’t clean the exterior, the paint traps in anything that’s on your home. That can include mold or mildew that may eventually ruin your paint or stains that may bleed through. We ensure that doesn’t happen.

 

Priming the Siding for House Renovations

Once the surface is ready, our painting contractors decide if your home needs primer. Usually, it’s not necessary, but it depends on the current color of your siding and the new color that you want. For instance, if you’re going from a very dark color to a light color, we may suggest a layer of primer.

 

A Protective Shield for Your Siding

As you will see once the paint has been applied to your home’s siding, Rhino Shield is more than ordinary paint. This paint is tested for salt tolerance. You don’t have to worry about the salty air breaking down or pock marking your siding. Additionally, Rhino Shield is a ceramic coating. It has lower thermal-conductivity than the materials used in traditional paint, which is just one of the reasons that this type of paint helps to fight against fires. In fact, if you live in an area prone to wildfires, you may even be able to get a discount on your home insurance when you use Rhino Shield to reinforce your siding.

 

Once our painting contractors have finished applying the exterior paint to your home’s siding, you can sit back and relax. You don’t have to worry about painting again for quite a while. Rhino Shield comes with a transferable 25-year warranty. To learn more or to get a quote, contact us today.

Why Rhino Shield is One of the Best Paint Companies for Exterior Paint

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Choosing the right exterior paint for your home is important. You want paint that will stand the test of time and look great. Rhino Shield is definitely one of the paint companies you should consider. Here’s why it just might be the right option.paint companies

1. Safe

When looking at various paint companies, you need to think about more than just how your home looks. You also need to think about the safety of the product you are choosing. Rhino Shield has a very low amount of VOCs. That stands for volatile organic compounds, and when inhaled, they can lead to cancer. If it gets on your skin while you’re painting, it’s also completely safe.

2. Encapsulates Lead

When you have our team of professionals apply Rhino Shield to your home, we also test for lead paint, and we take the time to safely remove it. Unfortunately, many paint companies don’t even test for lead, and that can be dangerous, especially if your existing paint is old.
That said, if you prefer to just apply Rhino Shield over your existing paint, it can encapsulate lead. Its thickness makes it safe to put over lead-based paint, and it holds in the lead so you don’t have to worry about it getting into the air and being inhaled by you, your family, your pets, or your neighbors.

3. Nonflammable

Annually, there are about 365,500 home fires in the United States—that’s the equivalent of 1,000 per day. These fires cause more than 2,500 deaths and over 11,000 injuries. To minimize your risk, it helps to choose the right paint companies, and Rhino Shield is nonflammable.
If you live in an area prone to wildfires, you may even qualify for a discount on your homeowner’s coverage. Rhino Shield’s class A fire and smoke rating resists these types of fires, and many home insurance companies offer special discounts as a result.

4. Reduced Effects of Aging

Almost all exterior paint looks great right away, but the true test is whether or not the paint can withstand aging. Rhino Shield has been tested by BASF, a third-party company, and the paint excelled in regards to resisting the effects of aging.
BASF also tested Rhino Shield products for tensile strength, flexibility, breathability, and viscosity. This exterior paint excelled in all of those categories.

5. Multiple Colors and Custom Options

Safety and environmental friendliness is just one element to consider when choosing paint companies for your home. You also need to think about how it’s going to look. In addition to resisting aging as explained above, Rhino Shield also offers a huge range of colors.
You may even be able to customize your color, and you can use the online tool to visualize how different exterior paint colors will look on the outside of your home. You just upload a picture, choose a color, and test it out.

Now that you know why this is one of the best paint companies for exterior paint, it’s time to move forward. Contact Rhino Shield today, and learn more about getting this great product on your home.
