Rhino Shield.. The Best Stucco Paint Coating
Facts About Stucco Homes
Stucco remains one of the many great exterior options for home exteriors. Stucco looks great, and it helps limit the home’s use of energy, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It also has its disadvantages, which often leads to expensive repairs down the line.
Stucco House Problems
Stucco, by nature, isn’t good at repelling moisture. At some point, water will generally penetrate the material, especially in rainy climates. When this happens, the Styrofoam layer breaks, allowing more moisture to enter into and under the covering.
Stucco may also crack in homes that suffer from constant shifting and settling due to soil movement. The material itself can be brittle and does not expand and contract well with either house settling or harsh weather.. sun, rain, snow, sleet, etc. No one wants cracking and chipping siding on their home. So a beautiful, stucco textured siding can turn unsightly.

Our house needed a lot of work. We hadn’t sealed the stucco in a long time which lead to cracking and the stucco separating from the wall on two sides of the house. We love our home but had been putting off the maintenance for way too long. We called Rhino Shield because we wanted a permanent solution and we couldn’t be happier. They worked hard every day, and while I think it took longer than they had expected, they never cut corners and made our house as good as new. We are so relieved to have the house fixed up, and so excited to never have to paint again. If you have a stucco home you need to call Rhino Shield!
Over the years, I have worked with many contractors, but never has one been so attentive to detail. Any questions or concerns were addressed immediately; and I was especially impressed by the daily progress call from the owner. The quality in workmanship far met my expectations; and, neighbors continue to compliment the property. This was not just a paint job – it is an investment in my stucco home that I am most proud of. I highly recommend Rhino Shield and their professional crew. You will not be disappointed!
Our house was not in great shape after many years of putting off the painting. When we called Rhino Shield we were hoping for a miracle, and they delivered. After repairing all the rotten wood, patching the stucco, and rebuilding the garage door they applied their super paint and it looks amazing. It now looks like the house we always wanted it to be.
I came to Rhino Shield to paint my 20 year old stucco home. I had been sealing it every 6-7 years but the staining on the surface from the water wasn’t fixed by sealing. I just wanted a new look, but didn’t want to keep painting it all the time. Rhino Shield did an amazing job. They showed up on time, did an excellent job every day, and cleaned up when they were done. When I stand back and look at the house, it looks brand new- absolutely perfect. I did a lot of research on Rhino Shield and am confident it will look this good for as long as I’m around to enjoy it.

The Science Behind the Shield – Rhino Shield Testing Data
The Rhino Shield application process has proven to protect your property against the harshest weather while improving the overall energy efficiency. In this section, you can read more about proof that Rhino Shield Stucco Paint Coating is the best exterior paint coating for your stucco exterior, or virtually any exterior home.
Ceramic Microspheres were invented in the early 1960s as an outgrowth from the manufacture of solid ceramic beads. Because the micro spheres are made from ceramics, they provide the additional benefits of high heat and chemical resistance. The central air pocket in the micro spheres provides an insulating barrier for your walls much like a thermos bottle does. This insulating, industrial maintenance-free coating is long lasting, offering superior mildew resistance, corrosion resistance, and ultra-violet ray reflectivity. Rhino Shield’s Ceramics incorporate different sized microspheres as fillers. Conventional paints utilize inexpensive mineral products as fillers that are irregular in shape and size. These irregularly-shaped fillers don’t pack nearly as well as a mix of small and large microspheres. (The smaller spheres pack more tightly into the spaces between the larger spheres.) The more densely the coating is packed with microspheres, the less permeable it is to stains and the thicker it is when dry.
Adding ceramic microspheres and high quality Titanium Dioxide to our top grade 100% acrylic elastomeric resins makes Rhino Shield reflect more light and heat, repel water better, and is more durable than any other coating on the market. Ongoing testing and constant improvements ensure that Rhino Shield will remain the absolute best exterior paint coating for your home.
