The installation process at Rhino Shield is a thorough process that keeps the client in mind from start to end.

After being cleaned and caulked, your home is now ready for to be protected by Rhino Shield. The next step in the installation process is to mask everything. Lighting fixtures, downspouts, windows, number plates, and other fixtures on your home will be covered and protected so they don’t get covered with over-spray.

After everything is covered, we will apply a waterproof primer to your home. This serves as a bonding agent that the ceramic microspheres within the paint can adhere to later on. Furthermore, primers contain a mildewcide that inhibits the growth of milder algae and mold, preventing the growth of fungi that can deteriorate a home’s value.

At this point, we will paint your home with your choice of the 1500 colors we offer. The finish coat will be applied a high mil thickness for maximum protection. When the coat has dried, we will come back through and touch-up any sections that need extra attention.

Once the touch-up and clean-up is complete our team will do a final inspection with you to ensure you are 100% satisfied with the workmanship and new exterior.

Here are just a few reasons to choose Rhino Shield instead of paint for your home:

Aesthetics – Rhino Shield can be customized to any color in the Pantone library, and due to its enhanced viscosity, it produces a deeper hue than conventional latex paints.

Durability – A comparable volume of Rhino Shield contains almost 2/3 less water than traditional latex paint. This fact means that its proprietary blend of elastomeric resins, ceramics and mildew-resistant compounds goes on almost 4x thicker, chips less, and lasts significantly longer.

Affordability – Rhino Shield is applied in a manner similar to regular paint, but its makeup means that you normally need only one coat so application costs are the same or less. In addition, reapplication is only need every two decades or so.

The Rhino Shield Installation Process ensures that our coatings will protect your home for decades to come. From start to finish, we thoroughly inspect, repair, and prepare both the structure and the surface of your home so that the finished coating is reliable and durable.

The process begins by giving your home a thorough inspection and pressure washing; afterward, we devise a plan to rectify any structural problems that are discovered. At this point, we will repair or replace damaged siding and stucco so that the surface of your home is in tip-top condition.

As the repairs and replacements are finished up, we remove the old paint and any construction debris from your home. Again, this is to ensure that the surface is as clean as possible so that the Rhino Shield primer and top coat will better adhere to the structure.

Once this is complete, we utilize a high quality elastomeric acryclic caulk to fill in small surface imperfections and joints around doors and windows so that the home is airtight.

Rhino Shield Keeps Your Home Looking Great for Decades

Your home is most likely the largest investment you will ever make. That’s why it is imperative that you protect it from it’s number one nemesis: Mother Nature. Traditional house paints are acceptable for a few years, but paints break down under the rain, snow, sunshine, and wind that bear down on them 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Paint Buckets

Rhino Shield’s ceramic coatings are designed to withstand the elements and weather the test of time. 

When comparing Rhino Shield to paint, Rhino Shield does not break down under this onslaught. That’s because Rhino Shield’s base is comprised of ceramic microspheres, mildewcides, and elastomeric resins that bind themselves to your home to form an impenetrable shield that Mother Nature can’t penetrate.

Furthermore, where a traditional house paint will protect your home for 5-7 years before you need to repaint, a home coated with Rhino Shield won’t need any maintenance or repair for up to 25 years. This not only saves you money, but gives you the peace of mind knowing your home will be protected regardless of the weather outside.

We invite you to contact Rhino Shield of New York by calling 877-744-6608 to learn more about our products and their amazing ability to protect your home for decades to come.
