Beautiful and durable, cedar shake siding is a popular choice for homeowners in Chicagoland. However, this natural material also presents a series of maintenance challenges that can lead to costly and time-consuming repairs. From dryness and cracking to mold growth and insect infestation, maintaining cedar shake siding can be a headache.

But what if there was a permanent solution? Enter Rhino Shield, an innovative ceramic exterior wood paint coating technology designed to provide long-lasting protection to your cedar shake exterior.

The Challenges of Cedar Shake Siding

Cedar shake siding, while naturally attractive, is susceptible to a range of issues:

  • Dryness and Cracking: Cedar shakes are porous, making them prone to absorbing moisture, but they can also dry out quickly in hot, dry climates. This can cause the shakes to shrink, crack, and split.
  • Water Damage: Cracked cedar shakes provide an entry point for water, leading to potential rotting, mold growth, and insect infestation.
  • Mold Growth: Wet or damp cedar shakes are a breeding ground for mold, causing unsightly stains and damaging the wood.
  • Insect Infestation: Insects like termites and carpenter ants can cause significant damage to cedar shakes.
  • Frequent Repainting: To protect cedar shakes from the elements, repainting is required every few years—a costly and time-consuming process.
