Can You Buy Rhino Shield Paint?
Rhino Shield is a ceramic wall coating that has provided unbeatable long-term value to home and business owners across the country. The coating stands apart from ordinary exterior paint because it has double the solids content, includes high-performance ingredients such as ceramic microspheres, and is applied approximately eight times thicker than paint.
Sometimes the question arises of whether you can buy Rhino Shield paint and apply it yourself. The answer is no, because for Rhino Shield coatings to provide the unbeatable durability and longevity they are known for, they must be applied as part of a rigorous process by highly trained technicians.
The Rhino Shield application process includes the following steps:
During your free consultation, a Rhino Shield representative will carefully assess the exterior walls of your home or business, carefully noting any minor repairs that need to be made or areas that require other special attention.
We’ll thoroughly clean your exterior walls, typically using a pressure washer, to eliminate oils, dust, mildew, and surface chalking. This process produces a clean and dry surface that the coating can securely adhere to.
Patching & Repair
The amount of work performed at this stage in the residential or commercial painting process depends on the extent of damage we find on your exterior walls. Our painters will perform minor patching and repairs as needed to restore the substrate to its original condition.
For your Rhino Shield wall coating to provide a strong, consistent layer of protection, loose paint and debris will first need to be removed. Our painters will sand or scrape any paint that will come off easily and will utilize chemical or mechanical stripping if needed.
Considering how important caulking is in the painting process, we utilize ultra-reliable elastomeric caulk for our projects. We’ll caulk cracks, joints, and seams to keep moisture out.
The Rhino Shield priming coat plays a crucial role in sealing and waterproofing your exterior walls, as well as serving as a bonding agent for the finish coat.
Featuring the most resilient ingredients available, the Rhino Shield finish coat is specially formulated to prevent cracking, chipping, and peeling. This ceramic coating can be tinted in any color you want and will be sprayed heavily onto your exterior walls, with brushing and back rolling utilized as needed.
Taking this thorough process into account, it should be clear why you can’t simply buy Rhino Shield paint and apply it yourself. To learn more about our painting services, contact us today for a free consultation and price quote.
