Savings Analysis of Rhino Shield vs Traditional Paint

Savings Analysis of Rhino Shield vs Traditional Paint

Cumulative Cost of Rhino Shield vs Regular Paint

Rhino Shield is a valuable, long-term investment for your home that saves you time and money compared to houses with traditional latex exterior paint. Homes with traditional latex paint typically need to be repainted every 3 to 5 years, or every 3 years if it has masonite or LP siding. Rhino Shield’s exterior ceramic coating eliminates the need to repaint every 3 to 5 years, and is backed with a 25 year transferable warranty.  This investment saves you a considerable amount of money over time. 

According to, “The average professional exterior painting service will cost between $1.50 and $4.00 per square foot in 2023.” Costs can also vary depending on your home’s exterior. Each exterior material requires different painting supplies, prep work, and number of coats, so prices will vary accordingly.

The numbers in the chart above may need to be scaled for inflation, but the general message remains. When you choose to paint your home’s exterior with Rhino Shield, you won’t have to worry about repainting the exterior of your home for 25 years. Over that 25-year period, you will save time and money not having to repaint your house every 3-5 years. 

Atlanta Rhino Shield Dealer, Jeff Ecklund, tells customers, “With traditional paint, all you’re doing is renting a solution to your problem, which is painting over and over and over. With Rhino Shield, you’re buying the solution. You’re owning it.
