If Rhino Shield is not paint, then what is it?2020-02-10T17:37:49+00:00

Rhino Shield is a ceramic elastomeric coating.  It looks just like house paint and you can also tint it to any color that you wish.  Unlike paint, however, our coating dries 8-9 times thicker than latex paint and has many more benefits to offer.

Why choose Rhino Shield over traditional paint?2020-02-10T17:38:04+00:00

Better ingredients make a better product. Our elastomeric, ceramic-based paints are environmentally friendly and reduce the need to frequently repaint your home. Rhino Shield products have been tested and proven to help provide water resistance, help prevent the growth of mold and mildew, and help reduce energy consumption in your home due to its high solar reflective index. Rhino Shield is also a breathable product allowing natural water vapors to escape thus preventing coating breakdown. And it comes with a 25 year warranty against cracking, chipping, or peeling.

What surfaces may Rhino Shield be used on?2020-02-10T17:38:32+00:00

I have vinyl siding, can Rhino Shield be used to cover it?2020-02-10T17:38:45+00:00

Can I use Rhino Shield on my boat or vehicle?2020-02-10T17:38:57+00:00

Is Rhino Shield expensive?2020-02-10T17:41:03+00:00

Rhino Shield is typically more expensive than a traditional paint job. This is mostly due to Rhino Shield providing an 8 to 10 times thicker coating than paint and typically spending much more time on home preparation. However, by eliminating the repainting cycle, a customer actually saves considerable money over time. To request a custom Rhino Shield quote, click here.

I have small cracks in my stucco. Will Rhino Shield fill in these cracks?2020-02-10T17:42:29+00:00

Rhino Shield will naturally fill small stucco cracks (1/16” or smaller) using the two-step process. Larger cracks may require an application of a stucco patch prior to applying the Rhino Shield system. Once applied, Rhino Shield will help reduce future cracking due to the bonding properties of the adhesive primer and the ceramic finish
