The founders of Rhino Shield started as home improvement contractors in the Florida Panhandle, which is known for its extreme heat and humidity, frosty cold, torrential rain, and of course, hurricanes. One of the many jobs of these contractors was exterior house painting. Over the years, they painted many houses and business with all different types of paint and coatings, including many national brands.
These contractors were committed to customer service, so they always made sure to check on the customers and fix any problems they had with the paint as time passed. Since they found themselves repairing paint jobs so often, they hired a chemist to help determine if the problems were due to materials or their application. The chemist could find no immediate fault in their methods. “You are using a lot of good materials and you are certainly preparing the home and applying the product according to the manufacturer’s specifications.”
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 suggested developing a coating with no fillers, less water and more solids. 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 they developed what was later to be called “Rhino Shield”. After their initial successes with the product, they wanted to improve it further. So they decided to add superior ceramic microspheres to make Rhino Shield perform better.
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.
Rhino Shield Gulf South is a BBB Accredited Business, and was named Rhino Shield National Dealer of the year in 2009. This award was based on overall performance and customer satisfaction.
