Cedar

Painting cedar gives your home a distinctive look that combines contemporary design with a touch of rustic style. Cedar siding looks beautiful when professionally painted, including lap, shingle, bevel, and tongue-and-groove styles. At Rhino Shield, our exterior coating experts know how to paint cedar siding to ensure the best protection and appearance for your home.

 

Why Paint Cedar Siding?

Cedar is a good fit for exterior surfaces, offering natural impact resistance and moisture resistance. However, to give a cedar siding house the best protection against the elements, it’s essential to apply durable paint or seal. Here are several advantages of painting cedar:

Complete moisture resistance: Unprotected cedar tends to warp or crack. Painting with Rhino Shield makes cedar siding impervious to moisture in warm and cold climates.

Long-lasting and vibrant colors: Fading is a common issue with cedar. Fortunately, painting cedar with Rhino Shield ceramic microspheres maintains your home’s same bold exterior after decades.

Superior protection against damage: The mildewcide paint additive, algaecide, and fungicide of Rhino Shield protects all cedar varieties against rotting, mold, and insects, like never before.

Dependable fire resistance: Homeowners with cedar siding are often concerned about fire risks. Rhino Shield is Class A Fire & Smoke Rated, so it offers the best rating possible for fire resistance.

Reduced maintenance requirements: With Rhino Shield, you don’t have to worry about sanding and replacing flaking paint or seal every few years. Your home looks gorgeous for 25 years or more.

Cedar lasts, but the stain and materials used to treat it sure don’t. Rhino Shield is a great answer to putting a long-lasting, permanent paint coating on cedar homes and siding.

 

What Steps Are Required for Painting Cedar?

The first step in painting cedar is to clean the wood and repair any cracks. Next, our professionals prime the wood. Priming allows the protective coating to penetrate deeply into cedar. After that, a thick topcoat is applied to lock in the benefits permanently. This topcoat can be tinted to the color of your choosing.

I contracted Rhino Shield this summer for my home and I couldn't be happier. They took the time to walk me through the process and I never felt pressure by anyone at the company to buy. My home gets direct sunlight and rough weather and I was tired of the chipping and peeling I was getting every 4 or 5 years. They were able to color match exactly what my wife wanted and i don't have to worry about painting. Great company and product!

"Don't paint, don't vinyl, go Rhino!" Catchy isn't it? After weeks of research into this product I was convinced this was the best solution for exterior coating. If you do your reading on the company and the product and want yourself a 25 year guarantee, this is absolutely the best way to go.

I wanted this to be the last time I had to have my house repainted. I looked into long-term solutions and found Rhino Shield in the area, and after having a long talk with them on the phone, I had them come out. Great job. All my neighbors were asking about my house, nothing by compliments!

I needed a new siding paint that would hold up well in high-winds. This product has been highly-tested and definitely comes out looking good. The price was totally reasonable, I'd say this is surely the best investment.

Rhino Shield provided me with A+ service. They gave me a very fair quote, stuck to it, and got the work done in a very timely fashion. End result looks great, and so far as of a few months later it looks just as good as the day they left. I'm satisfied.

The workers came in and did a great job. Done a lot faster than I had expected. This stuffs awesome. The look, the fire rating, and of course, the warranty is the best part. I can't imagine going back to regular vinyl.

House looks great, going to be calling to take care of another property of mine soon. Absolutely love this product so far. The fact that it looks better than the last work I had done, and it has the warranty, AND the actual quality and resistance of the product itself. You can't go wrong!

After discovering Rhino Shield and doing some research I will never return to traditional vinyl siding. I handle several properties now, and each of them has had Rhino Shield installed without any issues. The company is great with their clients and they offer an amazing quality service. Built to last.

This is an excellent service. I've had to redo my paint one too many times and I'm glad to have done the research and finally found the "end all be all" of products. It looks perfect, and several months later I can't find a single chip!

I get Rhino Shield for all the properties I buy and sell and love explaining it to potential buyers. This company means business and stands by their product, and without even knowing how incredibly durable it is, just looking at it the paint is amazing.

We moved in our house a little over a year ago and the woodpeckers LOVE the cedar siding. My husband has patched 15+ holes in the siding over the past year. After my brother-in-law mentioned Rhino Shield, I checked in to it and scheduled a consultation. Nancy was very informative and patient with all our questions. We decided to move forward. Eric and his crew showed up last Tuesday (4/14). From the beginning, Eric and his crew were very professional and detailed. Eric kept me informed every step of the way. I knew the prep work would take the most time during this process. Eric and his crew were very diligent with the preparation of the house and detached garage. We knew on day 1 that we had the best of the best crew working on our house. Eric and his crew also replaced a LOT of cedar that the woodpeckers had destroyed and my husband had patched so that we could have a clean start. I can't say enough good things about Eric and his crew!I had a hard time choosing a color (who knew there were so many shades of blue...?!) and Eric, Nancy (sales), and Amy (office) were all very helpful and patient with me while choosing. Thank you all!Eric and his team finished up yesterday and we are very pleased with the outcome. Now, fingers crossed the woodpeckers stay away! 🙂
