"I couldn't be happier than to be able to partner with Marc and Sheryl to bring the incredible Rhino Shield products and service to the great people in my adopted home of Eastern PA."
Jon Gilge started out in the home improvement industry as soon as he could walk. His father Dennis ran a successful roofing siding and window business in Wausau, Wisconsin and Jon was a presence on the job sites from the time he could be useful picking up the trash. Through middle school and high school, as Jon’s abilities and experience grew he continued to work alongside his father evenings, weekends and during summer breaks. In 1999 after graduating from the University of Notre Dame Jon joined Sears Home Improvements as a sales representative and quickly rose through the organization to the level of regional manager. It was with Sears that he met Rhino Shield of PA’s co-owner Marc Mercier. He left in 2007 to join Home Depot Home services as the manager of the kitchen and deck division in Chicago, IL. After that, he moved on to Feldco Factory Direct, nationally recognized as Remodeler Magazine Dealer of the Year multiple times, as the National Sales Trainer. In 2012 Jon joined Bath Saver of Harrisburg, PA as a regional vice president and stayed with the organization as vice president of Kitchen Saver.
This beautiful home in Newtown Square, PA needed repair to the aging stucco and a fresh coat of permanent Rhino Shield paint. We applied 3 coats of our Elastomeric-Ceramic top coat. The ceramics give our coating the wear characteristics of ceramic, and the elastomeric ensure the coating does not dry brittle like regular paint which leads to cracking and peeling.
We applied a coat of our exclusive bonding primer. Unlike ordinary primers that only aid in paint coverage, the Rhino Shield Adhesive Primer seals the stucco. It also serves to adhere the topcoat to the surface we are painting.
