Why Choose Rhino Shield Texas Instead Of Traditional Paint?

Better ingredients make a better product. Our elastomeric, ceramic-based paints are environmentally friendly and reduce the need to repaint your home frequently. Rhino Shield products have been tested and proven to be waterproof, to prevent mold and mildew growth and reduce energy consumption in your home due to its high solar reflective index and insulating properties. Rhino Shield Texas is also a breathable product that allows natural water vapors to escape, thus preventing coating breakdown.

Our independent testing results through BASF, particularly accelerated aging tests, have confirmed that Rhino Shield will last more than 25 years if properly applied.

What Does Rhino Shield Look Like? What Is The Application Process?

It looks much like a thick, rich latex paint except it’s slightly thicker. It will, however, maintain the look and textural characteristics of your building material. It is typically sprayed using professional paint-spraying equipment. It can also be rolled or brushed if necessary.

What Colors Are Available?

Can I Change The Color Later?

We want to be as accurate as possible when quoting our local San Antonio homeowners so that you know the exact investment you’re making in your home. Fill out a form and let our team give you an estimate you can rely on to make this decision!

Can I Purchase Rhino Shield Directly And Apply It Myself Or Use My Local Paint Contractor?

No, the Rhino Shield system must be applied by a certified dealer/distributor. We’ve received extensive expert training on how to prepare a building for Rhino Shield and also how to apply the product correctly. We’re not able to offer such an extensive product warranty without assurance that preparation and installation will be done correctly.

Can Rhino Shield Be Used On Interior Walls Or Roofs?

Rhino Shield is designed for exterior walls only. However, we do have an interior ceramic wall system called Nature’s Cote that is perfect for interior needs. We also offer a separate product called Super Shield for roof coating applications.

Can Rhino Shield Be Used On Historical Homes?

Yes! We’re often called upon by historic commissions to protect famous historical homes or buildings. We appreciate the unique challenges involved in treating historical buildings, including handling delicate exterior substrates, maintaining surface texture integrity and ensuring a breathable coating solution for older materials.

Can You Pressure Wash Your Home After A Rhino Shield Installation?

Yes, it can be pressure washed to remove any loose dirt or dust that may accumulate on walls. We recommend 1,500 psi or less.

Will You Replace Rotten Wood On My House?

Rhino Shield must be applied to wood that is in acceptable condition. We will repair or patch wood if possible but never to the point where we feel it will cause the system to fail over time. If we determine any wood must be replaced, we’ll highlight problem areas needing replacement wood and provide a cost recovery quote for wood replacement as part of the estimation process.

Will Rhino Shield Fill In Small Stucco Cracks?

Rhino Shield will naturally fill small stucco cracks (1/16″ or smaller) using the two-step process. Larger cracks may require the application of a stucco patch before 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.

Does Rhino Shield Have A Product That Maintains The Natural Look Of Wood?

Yes! The Rhino Shield line of products offers a clear finish option. Rhino-Clear is a beautiful, long-lasting clear coat sealer. This copolymer formula rejuvenates old surfaces, protects and waterproofs. Rhino-Clear prevents water intrusion by sheeting and sealing off water, thus reducing the environment for mold, mildew, and algae formation. There is a five year warranty on Rhino-Clear.

Are Rhino Shield Dealers Owned By Rhino Shield?

No, Rhino Shield dealers are independent businesses with exclusive territories to market and install Rhino Shield. However, all dealers have been trained and certified by Rhino Shield Corporate as fully authorized to install Rhino Shield products.

They all have excellent home improvement credentials in their markets concerning the BBB and other state consumer protection agencies. References are available and encouraged by any Rhino Shield dealer upon request.

I was pleased with the RhinoShield coating on my house, so when I had my deck rebuilt, I wanted RhinoShield on the deck posts. They were very responsive to the deck schedule and did a great job! I also like that they support Texas Public Radio with a business membership.

Excellent service! The workers were polite and professional, addressed all of my concerns, arrived on time and provided high-quality results. In the recent hail storm, I received no damage. The paint is remarkable. I wish I would have found this 10 years ago. I will definitely use them again.
