Tom, I guess no one can speak to Rhino Shield. Not to sound cliche, but if it sounds too good . . . . And, this, from what you're saying, doesn't even sound too good. Lifetime warranty? Whose lifetime? Lifetime warranties are like trying to beat the casinos at their own game. The game is designed in their favor, not yours. They're like 74 pages long and have disclaimers that will all but remove them from total liability. They'll make enough money off you on the front end to cover any after market failures, and you'll eventually get tired and go away. Then, a new industry will sprout. Those who remove Rhino S***. If you're old enough to remember aluminum siding, we were told we'd never have to do exterior maintenance again. Was that true? Remember vinyl siding? We were told that the errors of aluminum were solved, and we'd never have to worry about exterior maintenance again. Was that true? None of it was true, and Rhino will be no different. Nothing is going to thwart Mother Nature. Call your painter and get on his schedule.
