Cost Comparison to Save You Money

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

 

It’s December, and we all know what that means. ‘Tis the season…for spending. A lot. But don’t set your home on the back burner. It needs some Christmas cheer too, and Rhino Shield has the perfect, cost saving solution for you.

Our exterior coating is the best in the business. It’s long lasting, and will save you money too! Basic latex and acrylic paints need to be repainted every three to seven years. That sure is pricey! Our exterior coating will keep your home looking fabulous for twenty five years.

Our exterior coating is unique. It contains high solid contents and binders, and has been applied to both industrial and commercial sites all around the world. Why not invest in this same amazing technology for your home?

Pricing for paint varies immensely with location. We’re seeing more and more cost increases, and less and less quality products. Paint is easily watered down. This causes cracking, peeling, and unwanted maintenance that Rhino Shield’s exterior coating avoids.

Let’s compare Rhino Shield’s exterior coating and paint:

Binders

Paint: Latex, Acrylic

Rhino Shield: Acrylic, Urethane, Elastomeric

Solids

Paint: Clay, Minerals

Rhino Shield: Ceramic Microspheres, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide

Solid Percentage

Paint: 30-35%

Rhino Shield: 60%

Primer

Paint: Basic Latex

Rhino Shield: Exclusive Adhesive Primer

Thickness

Paint: 1.5 dry mils per coat

Rhino Shield: 10 dry mils minimum

 

Cost is important to almost every home owner out there, and we understand that. It’s hard to give exact estimates. Every home is different. Costs can vary based on size, shape, and region as well.

Our coating is long lasting, and worth every penny. Up front, the numbers may look different than the cost of basic paint. In the long run though, our exterior coating will help decrease your costs as well as the petty maintenance that comes along with basic paint, all while increasing your home’s value and lightening your to do list!

We know the holiday season is both busy and pricey. Make the right decision for you and your home by giving the gift of Rhino Shield this Christmas!

April Showers Bring May Flowers and Mold

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

April has always been known for it’s heavy rain and cloudy days. This year has been no exception. We’re beyond ready for sunshine! Have we had a sunny weekend in the last two months?

Where there’s rain, there’s problems. An important part of maintaining your home’s exterior is protecting it from the outside elements. To keep it looking fresh and clean,  it’s important to take necessary steps to prevent unsightly bio growth including mold, mildew, and algae. Rhino Shield has the perfect products to help you maintain the beauty of your home’s exterior.

Mildew

Mildew is a thin whitish coating consisting of minute fungal hyphae, growing on plants or damp organic material such as paper or leather. Mildew is a very common focus that can be found almost anywhere that dampness occurs. For the most part, mildew can be clean be cleaned using mildew removers, or bleach.

Mold

A mold or mould is a fungus that grows in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. Mold is everywhere, both in the air and on varying surfaces. It thrives in moisture, and is often found in homes where leaks. Mold is commonly found in windows, or pipes, or on paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, and wood products. It can grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery according to the CDC.

Algae

Algae is the simple nonflowering plant of a large group that includes the seaweeds and many single-celled forms. Algae contain chlorophyll but lack true stems, roots, leaves, and vascular tissue. They thrive in moist habitats. and can survive in a wide range of temperatures. They can be found in water or on land.

Most standard paints use a basic mildewcide. Rhino Shield uses a four prong approach to combat a wide range of mildew, fungi, and algae. In addition, inorganic additives such as zinc oxide (used in skin rash pastes) are used to provide long term effectiveness. Best of all Rhino Shield fights bio growth in an eco-friendly way! The biocides and additives are zero-VOC EPA registered agents. So say goodbye to mold, mildew, and algae! Head over to Rhino Shield’s main page for more information.
