How Is Rhino Shield Applied?
If you’re considering revitalizing your home or business with a Rhino Shield coating, you are likely wondering how Rhino Shield is applied. The answer is that Rhino Shield coatings are administered as part of a rigorous, multi-step process that involves cleaning, repairing, caulking, priming, and coating your exterior walls to ensure the unbeatable durability that Rhino Shield coatings are known for.
Here’s a step-by-step explanation of how Rhino Shield exterior wall coatings are applied:
To complete your coating project in the most effective manner possible, we’ll first need to understand exactly what work your walls require and develop a plan of action. Our inspection will involve identifying any sections of your walls that need minor repairs or other special attention.
Your exterior walls need to be clean in order for your Rhino Shield coating to adhere securely. Our team will thoroughly wash your walls, likely using a pressure washer, to remove dirt, oils, mildew spores, chalking, and other contaminants.
As part of the Rhino Shield application process, we’ll seek to restore damaged sections of your home or business’s exterior walls. For example, we can perform minor repairs or patches to wood or stucco. We’ll do this not only for cosmetic reasons, but also because it will help to ensure proper application of your Rhino Shield coating.
Loose paint could prevent the Rhino Shield primer and finish coat from bonding correctly. To address this problem, our team will sand and scrape away any loose paint, utilizing chemical or mechanical stripping if needed.
Moisture infiltration can cause significant damage to your exterior walls. To prevent this from happening, we’ll caulk small cracks, joints, and seams to keep moisture out.
While some painters don’t apply any primer, we use our special Rhino Shield primer that strengthens and prepares the substrate. The primer also acts as a bonding agent, ensuring that the Rhino Shield finish coat will bond securely for optimal longevity.
As the final step in the Rhino Shield application process, we’ll apply the Rhino Shield finish coat. Since our team will apply this coating approximately 8-10 times thicker than a conventional paint job, it should come as no surprise that the coating will do a far better job of withstanding weather elements than the industry norm.
