I did a lot of research when I bought my house, trying to find the best exterior solution. I wasn't crazy for the look of vinyl siding, but I did like that it was maintenance-free. I really wanted the best of both worlds, natural material but without maintenance. I looked at cement board siding, and while the product seemed to last forever, it needed to be painted just like wood. I heard an ad for Rhino Shield and gave them a call. I'm sure glad I did. You really can get the look of paint without the maintenance. They did a great job painting my house and I'm completely satisfied.
