Life is busy, so there shouldn’t be a need to worry about maintenance and upkeep of your home’s exterior – especially when it comes to siding or other exterior finishes that need regular upkeep.
Rhino Shield provides an alternative to replacing your siding or painting your home’s exterior every few years. The company uses an elastomeric product that looks similar to regular latex paint but is thicker and more durable. It can last for 25 years, holding up against cracking, chipping and peeling.
The thick, flexible coating is water-resistant and breathable, it has a Class A fire rating, and it helps to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Because ceramic spheres in the product help it to reflect the sun, Rhino Shield reduces the amount of heat the house absorbs and thus saves money on cooling costs in the summer.
Crew members apply the paint using professional spraying equipment, though the product, which looks like rich latex paint, can also be rolled on or brushed. There are more than 1,600 colors to choose from, and if homeowners don’t know what to pick, one of the team’s consultants can help. If a homeowner wants to change colors down the line, it’s easy enough to re-coat the home’s exterior.
Rhino Shield is flexible enough to be used on pretty much any surface including wood, stucco, brick, vinyl and metal. If the product is applied to vinyl siding, however, Rhino Shield consultants recommend selecting a lighter hue, because darker colors tend to absorb more heat and could cause the vinyl underneath to buckle or warp.
Rhino Shield has been used in many applications, and the company has even been approached by historic commissions to help protect famous homes and buildings.
