1. Thorough Inspection

It is critically important that a thorough inspection is done to determine the condition of the underlying substrates and what work will be needed. A plan is created to accomplish the work.

2. Repair

If you would like we can replace or repair damaged wood.

3. Sanding and Scraping

All loose paint on wood surfaces is removed by scraping and any remaining paint is sanded by hand or machine.

4. Caulking

Once the wood surfaces have been scraped and sanded, filling of cracks, small holes in the wood, caulk around all windows and door casings to prevent moisture from invading the coating through these areas.

5. Masking

6. Priming

All areas with raw wood are first coated with an oil based primer. Then the application of our proprietary solid coat Rhino-Shield First Coat / Adhesive Primer Sealer to act as a bonding agent to make the finish coat stay on your home without cracking or peeling.

7. Apply the finish coat

At last, after all the prep work and priming is completed, the proprietary Rhino-Shield Ceramic Coating is applied.

8. Detail finish touch-up

After the final finish coat is applied, detailed touch ups are done on the exterior such as windows, awnings, etc., and then remove all masking materials.
