The founders of Rhino Shield began their careers working as home improvement contractors in Florida, an area known for its exceptionally harsh weather. Hurricanes, high humidity and heat, and salt content in the air made the field of home improvement quite difficult. Throughout their years working as contractors, they applied many different types of house coatings and paints, including top-rated national brands.
These contractors were the “good guy” contractors, always making sure to check back in with their customers and fix any problems with the paints and coatings. Since their customers were having so much difficulty with the upkeep of the house paint, the contractors hired a chemist to look further into the problem.
When the chemist began to break down the paints, he noticed that they were made mostly of cheap fillers. He explained to the contractors that, with so many fillers, the paints were destined to break down within a few years.
The chemist recommended that the contractors create a product with less water and no fillers, but rather high quality solid materials. He explained the importance of high quality solid materials in the composition of a coating product. When the water evaporates from the product, you are left only with the solid materials within it. If these solids are cheaply made, they will surely break down over time. If they are high quality solid materials, the coating will not break down.
So the contractors created the innovative coating product known today as “Rhino Shield.” The product saw immediate success, but the creators wanted to improve on the product even more. This is when they decided to add the superior ceramic microspheres that are found in the product today.
Over the last ten years, Rhino Shield has spread throughout the country with dealers in almost every state. Rhino Shield Gulf South serves Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Colorado, Washington State, Oregon, and Washington D.C.
