Typically, wood surfaces on a home’s exterior need to be painted every five to seven years. While the task is rarely seen as fun, it’s essential for boosting curb appeal and guarding against the harsh weather in the Midwest.
Over the years, many a homeowner has stared, exasperated, at their half-painted home, wishing for a way to put off this ordeal. It doesn’t have to be a dream anymore.
“Rhino Shield is a maintenance-free ceramic coating system that can go on any type of exterior,” says Zach Dixson, a sales representative for Rhino Shield of Chicagoland. “It’s a one-and-done system that coats the exterior of your home for up to 25 years.”
Rhino Shield is an elastomeric exterior paint coating that’s environmentally safe, vapor permeable and comprised of about 40% less water than typical paint.
The product goes on many surfaces and provides a maintenance-free finish to all common siding materials, including cedar, cedar shake, aluminum, vinyl, stucco and Tudor surfaces. Rhino Shield’s thick, elastic coating is sprayed, rolled and painted on by a professional crew in the same amount of time as a traditional paint job.
There’s no limit when it comes to choosing color. “We have every color of the rainbow,” says Dixson. “We have a giant machine in our office that can make any color our customer wants. They can even bring in a sample of the color they want. We can match it.”
The finish is guaranteed for 25 years and transfers to the next family that buys your home. The finish also helps to prevent mold, mildew and stains.
“A lot of our customers garden, live by a body of water or have water runoff from their gutters,” says Dixson. “Our product prevents those nasty green molds that can grow as a result of that water.”
The coating also saves money on energy costs, because of its ability to block the heat of the sun.
“You can eliminate repainting, prevent molds and stains, protect the building materials and up your home’s resale value, all in one visit,” says Dixson.
