Painting on Your Home’s Exterior
Rhino Shield is here to meet all your needs and services. WE are a full service company. Every homeowner has different needs and budgets, and we want to help in whatever makes sence. We can assist in wood repairs, to coating, to other speciality products. All our crews are experienced in several areas, if we don’t know the answer, and they don’t know the answer, we go find the answer from our other experts.
When it comes to painting your homes exterior it is something that should be done every 3-5 years depending upon the type of siding you have. If you have masonite/lp siding it should be done every 3 years not less. So the struggle most homeowners have it going thru the cycle, paint, looks good for awhile, and then having to find a painter again to come out and give bids and then pay for it again. Yes it costs less to paint, but in the long run it will cost you more than if you had used Rhino Shield.
All our crews are set to do almost any kind of repair, so that will save you time and headache from having to track down a contractor. One thing to remeber is that we are a full service company, so we can also work on those decks, fences, and pergulas. And remember we are always working within your budget, so if necessary we can apply traditional paint to areas such as porch ceilings, carports, and railings. We prefer to use Rhino Shield, but we also understand that you have to live and we will work with in those means. And in the case that Rhino Shield is just too expensive we can do just traditional paint, the type of your choice, and you have a company that is insured working on your home.
Imagine only having to do it once and be done.
Vinyl Siding Drawbacks
Vinyl has become the most popular siding material in the United States and is quickly gaining momentum around the world. Install vinyl siding, they say, and you will never have to paint your house again. Unlike wood or cedar, this durable plastic will not rot or flake. But what are the drawbacks that vinyl siding sales people don’t tell you?
1. Health Concerns
Vinyl is made from a PVC (polyvinyl chloride) plastic resin, a material suspected to cause cancer (see ‘Environmental Aspects’ section in Vinyl Siding in Wikipedia). Although vinyl may be safe while it is on your home, some scientists believe that manufacturing and disposing vinyl is hazardous to our health and to the environment. Accidental fires in vinyl-sided buildings are more dangerous because vinyl produces toxic fumes when heated. In addition, doctors are reporting a high incidence of neurological damage, respiratory problems, liver and kidney failure, birth defects, and cancer among people who work in or live near factories where vinyl is produced.
To learn more about the ways vinyl siding impacts our health and the environment, watch the award-winning documentary film Blue Vinyl, available on DVD. Or, read what the environmental group Greenpeace has to say about vinyl. For an opposing viewpoint, read the arguments written by the Vinyl Institute.
In extreme weather, vinyl siding is less durable than wood and masonry. Violent wind can get underneath the thin sheets of vinyl siding and lift a panel from the wall. Windblown debris and strong hail can puncture vinyl. Damage to a vinyl siding panel cannot be patched; you will need to replace the panel, and replacement color matching can be difficult.
Liquid vinyl coatings, which are sprayed on like paint, may prove to be more durable than vinyl panels. However, liquid vinyl coatings are difficult to apply correctly. Numerous problems have been reported. (See “Miracle Liquid Siding Products” on Ask the Builder.)
Unlike wood and masonry, vinyl siding presents its own breed of maintenance worries. Moisture trapped beneath the vinyl siding accelerates rot, promote mold and mildew, and invite insect infestations. Roof leaks, faulty gutters, or other sources of moisture should be repaired without delay. Vinyl siding may not be a wise option for an older home with a chronically damp cellar.
4. Energy Conservation
Vinyl siding doesn’t insulate your walls as well as wood, so it won’t significantly lower your utility bill, even when used in conjunction with foam behind the panel. The shape of the vinyl panel itself will not allow a uniform fit of the foam insulation.
5. Historic Preservation
No matter how closely vinyl resembles wood, any artificial siding will diminish the historic authenticity of an older home. In many cases, the original trim and ornamental details are covered or removed. In some installations, the original clapboard is completely removed or seriously damaged. Vinyl siding will always alter the overall texture and proportions of the house, changing the depth of moldings and replacing natural wood grain with factory-made embossed patterns.
6. Property Values
For new construction in the United States, vinyl is becoming increasingly common. On the other hand, many home shoppers still perceive vinyl as a tacky shortcut or a cover-up for possible problems. Homes built before 1940 lose their historic appeal when their authentic siding is covered. Before you install vinyl over wood clapboard or cedar shingles, look closely at other homes in your neighborhood. In a neighborhood of historic homes or upscale houses constructed primarily of wood and masonry, adding vinyl siding can diminish a home’s appeal to potential buyers.
