More and more customers are asking for Rhino Shield coatings for the exterior of their home. Unlike traditional paint, Rhino Shield is a coating built to stand up against harsh elements for many, many years.
Terrie L. and her family have been in their home outside Atlanta for 30 years. That’s 30 years of Christmases, birthdays, dinners and raising their kids in their forever home. So, when their home needed to be painted for the second time since they had moved in, they decided to coat it instead with Rhino Shield. One of the deciding factors was the Rhino Shield 25-year warranty.
“We had Rhino Shield installed 14 years ago and it still looks as good as it did the first day,” said Terrie. “It sounded so wonderful to us that we could have the house coated with Rhino Shield and not worry about it for the next 25 years. When you’re raising a family and caring for an older home, the fewer things you have to worry about the better. We’ve made a lot of repairs in the last few years but the paint has held up like new.”
Terrie was looking for a very specific tone of yellow which was difficult to match and was surprised by the large palette of colors to choose from.
“My Rhino Shield dealer Roxanne Ecklund worked with me to get a nice soft yellow and it’s still the same shade as when it was applied,” said Terrie. “It hasn’t faded or washed out — I’ve actually had neighbors come by and ask if our house was recently painted because they were looking for a contractor.
