“Rhino Shield did a great job. They cleaned up everything, and they did exactly what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. I was really glad that we went with them. The guys were great, and they came back to check their work. Everything is perfect. I'd say they're an A+.”
“The people were excellent, and the cleanup was superb. The product is very, very good. I've recommended them already—A.”
“The two guys who painted the house were super nice. I'd give them an A grade.”
“I liked their work crew. They were very good. They did exterior painting. Overall, I would grade them as an A.”
“The workers were very conscientious. They were doing exterior painting. I'd give them an A rating for the whole experience.”
“They did exterior painting. I'd give them an A.”
“It was good. But one problem was the people who did the work, they spread the oil content of the paint on my lawn and the lawn is not growing at all in those areas. Otherwise, everything is good. I'd give it an A+. It was good. There is the problem-cleanliness. My lawn is all spoiled. I would recommend them.”
“So far I'd have to say it's an A+.”
“I liked the quality of the work that they did. I would give it an A-.”
“They were pretty efficient and they cleaned up. I'd give it an A.”
“One thing that was really good is, I did have a couple of things that needed to get touched up and they came back to do it. After the follow up, after I paid for it and stuff, they did some caulking in a place I needed it so that was a really good thing. They wanted it to be a good job so it was good. They did all the replacement of boards and everything that needed to be done. I actually liked the product a lot. I could tell that it almost feels like there's a windproof the house almost upstairs. The thick coating, it's like an R factor. I'll give them an A. A couple of the painters weren't as skilled as others so because a couple of the guys didn't paint, it was sloppy looking. But the main guy, I don't know if he was the foreman or whatever, he was very skilled and corrected that too. As far as expertise, most of the guys were really good. They were very good at following up like when they called, I don't even remember the guy's name who owns the company there—the franchise—but he was very good about coming out and following up and making sure everything was done right.”

After I paid for it, they came back to do some caulking in a place where I needed it, so that was a really good thing. They treated me well. They wanted it to be a good job. They did all the replacement of the boards and everything that needed to be done. I actually like the product a lot. I can tell, it almost feels like they wind proofed the house or something. It's a thick coating. I'd give them an A. A couple of the painters weren't as skilled as others; a couple of the guys painted kind of sloppy-looking work. The foreman was very skilled and corrected that too. As far as expertise, most of the guys were really good. One guy, I don't know. They were very good at following up.

“I liked the quality of the work that they did. I would give my experience an A-. I would recommend them.”

“We love Rhino Shield. They did the whole outside of our house, and their customer service was excellent. I would grade them as an A+.”
“The people were very knowledgeable—both those on the administrative end and those that were actually doing the work, the application, and the follow-up. One of the things that made me feel comfortable was that when appeared as though there was a discrepancy in the color, they assured us that all the paint was from the same lot, and they said to give it time to see what it looks like at different stages of the year. They didn't even hesitate to assure us that they would hold to that if we felt the same way come spring and summer—they would make good on it even if they had to repaint one of the dormers. They were timely and cautious; on days when we were going to have rain, they made sure that they didn't try to apply any finish if there was a chance that a downpour might ruin the finish. Overall, it was a good experience. I was impressed with a job they did for a friend of ours—that friend is very, very particular, and he spoke very highly of Rhino Shield. I wasn't at all familiar with the process or the fact that the application of the primer and the end finish would still allow the cedar to breathe—that was one of my big concerns, but I've known this friend for a good number of years, and he's quite meticulous, so I listened when he referred them. Then, when I talked to the people from Rhino Shield and they came to give an estimate and an overview of how the operation would work from start to finish, I was pretty satisfied. They're A+.”
“They painted the entire exterior of my home—it was a three-color paint job. I was quite happy with them. The workmen were very friendly and accommodating, and they did a really good job on the paint. They did the colors I asked for, and they did it in the way that I asked for, so all in all, it was an excellent job. I would give them an A+.”
“They did exterior painting work for me. They came out, gave us a number, told us what they were going to do, and did exactly what they told us. They warrantied their product, and so far it's been good. I chose them because of the extent of their warranty and because they would replace the product if it started to fade or deteriorate—it was mostly their warranty that caused us to pick them. We've also talked to previous customers, and they've all had good experiences. We have not had any issues yet, either; it's only been a couple of years, but so far, so good. I'd give them an A. They're excellent.”
“They did exterior painting work for me. They did what they said they were going to do in a timely fashion, they were very professional, and the guys were very nice. I chose them because we wanted something that carried a long guarantee. Their work was A+.”
“They did some painting for me, and I'd say they're A+. The work was well done and very professional. They cleaned up, and they did a really nice job. We've had two places done, and at the first place, we needed repairs, so they came back and took care of that with no questions asked. I'd recommend them.”
“They did a great job. They painted the whole exterior of the house, and I'd rate them A.”
“Rhino Shield did a good job.”
“They painted the whole outside of our house. Their customer service was very good, and the quality of their work was very good. I chose them so that we would not have to paint again; that was very appealing—as long as we don't want to change the color, we're all set. I'd rate them an A.”
“They came in and did painting outside on the house. They were pleasant people, and I have not had any issues with the work. I would recommend their company—I'd give them an A for sure.”
“They did exterior painting for me. I chose them because of their product, and they delivered what we asked for. I would recommend Rhino Shield, and I'd give them an A.”
“Rhino Shield did exterior painting. They did the work the way they said they would, and they got it done in the time frame they established; so far, we're happy with the wear on it. I chose them because of their durability and 25-year guarantee. I'd give their business an A grade.”
“They did exterior painting work for me, and the experience was good. I chose them because of the contractor, and I would recommend them to others—they were very good. I'd give the company an A.”
“They did exterior painting work for me. We had some issues, but the owners of the company came out and did all the things they were supposed to do. We talked to Rick, and their personnel made the difference. I chose them because their salesman was a good guy; he explained everything, and he did everything—that was the tipping factor. They'd get an A from me.”
“They painted the house. There was really good communication. The work crew was great—the guys were really responsive and responsible, and the project came together really well. I chose them because the Rhino Shield material itself is fairly unique; I was really going for the material, and then I was really pleasantly pleased by the crew. I'd give them an A.”
“They got the work done quickly, and they were professional. There was no mess. All the neighbors came over and asked me who was doing this, and I said, 'Rhino Shield,' so they're reaching out. I would rate them an A.”
“They did exterior painting work for me. If I've ever had a problem, they've come right back and fixed it. My house is pretty old, and a lot of it is brick, but there is a lot of wood trim on it and their work probably saved it. I used to have to call painters in constantly to work on my house, and I haven't had to do that—it looks as good as the day they did it. If I call them and tell them there's a little spot on my house, they'll come right back—I have some paint left, so they go over it—but I haven't had to do that very much. I'd give them A+. They've been very good; it's been fine. I'm very happy with them, and I have a warranty on their work that will probably outlive me.”
“I liked the quality of their work, and when they had to come back to fix something, they came back and fixed it with no questions asked,. Originally, they painted a story and a half of our house, and when there was some paint that chipped off above the front door, they came back and patched that up for us. They rate an A+.”
“We were delighted with Rhino Shield. They put a ceramic finish on the exterior of our house, and it was a super, super positive experience. Their product is super high quality, and they did a great job. We went with a custom color, and they were super patient with us to get it right. I'd definitely give them an A.”
“Everything about them was 110 percent positive. Their product has been remarkable, and their workmen were incredibly detailed and conscientious. I couldn't get any paint to stick to my house until I found Rhino Shield. I would give them an A+. They were worth every penny.”
“Rhino Shield did an exceptional job. They painted the entire exterior of the house, and it turned out perfect. No one has a work ethic like the painters from Rhino Shield. They were remarkable. I would give them an A+.”
“The work they did is gorgeous, and I won't have to paint my house for 25 years. It is unbelievable—what a product. It's a ceramic-based paint, and it's unbelievable. It will never peel, and it's guaranteed for 25 years, so if anything happens, I'll call them up, and they'll come fix it. The reason I chose them over a different company is because of that guarantee. I'd give them an A+. The ceramic-based paint is absolutely, absolutely incredible. I wish I could paint my whole house inside with it; then, I'd never have to have it redone.”
“Rhino Shield is really good. They finished before deadline, and the quality of their work is very good. To be honest, it's better than I expected, and it looks beautiful. When my husband was talking to a couple of companies, he got the quotes, and these guys sounded more professional, so we picked them. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were fantastic. They were on time, they did a great job, and they were courteous. Everything about the experience was very good. They did some repair carpentry and then painted all the white trim on my house, which is a lot. They're A+.”
“We had a bunch of contractors that were working on the house, and Rhino Shield was, by far, the best group of guys as far as getting the job done. I cannot say enough good things about them. I would absolutely recommend them, and I would give them an A+.”
“I liked their prep work. They did a fabulous job with preparation before they put any of the coating on. They're very thorough. I would absolutely recommend them. They deserve an A.”
“Rhino Shield painted portions of our house. They weren't intrusive, they stayed out of our way, and everything seems to work fine. I'd give them an A+.”
“They painted the exterior of our house. They were quick, they did the work professionally, and we've been happy with the outcome so far. The 25-year warranty was a big factor in choosing them. It was an A+ job. I would use them again, and I recommend them.”
“I like their guarantee of how long it would last. They did the ceramic painting for me on the exterior of my home. It looks good, and they were very good at doing everything right. I would recommend the company to a neighbor or friend. I'd give them an A+.”
