Because it is 8 to 10 times thicker than normal paint and requires more detailed preparation, Rhino Shield is typically more expensive than a traditional house painting job. However, by breaking the cycle of having to repair and repaint your exterior every few years, you’ll actually save considerable money over time.

The cost of installation varies based on the particular needs of your home or business, including the amount of preparation required. Please reach out to us by phone or through our online form to request a free cost estimate for your specific property.
