What makes Crash of Rhinos different?

#1. We provide a free quote for every job

Before you schedule a job with us, we will visit your home or office building to offer you a free quote. This includes an inspection and our painting proposal packet. We want you to know upfront what you are spending and what you can expect from us before we schedule the job.

#2. We don’t expect any money upfront

At Crash of Rhinos, we complete our work before we ask you for any money. They are no upfront costs associated with our services, and you don’t pay until you are happy with the job we’ve done.

#3. We use the highest quality paint

Some companies are okay with cutting corners to save money, but we refuse to sacrifice quality or service for our valued customers. We use high-quality Dunn-Edwards paint for every job, and we stand behind our statement that it will handle the test of time.

#4. We are confident enough in our work to warranty it

Because we believe that our work speaks for itself, we offer a 7-year warranty on our exterior painting services. That means if you have problems within the first seven years, we are happy to come out and fix it. We don’t just want to finish the job; we want you to be happy with it long-term.

#5. Our process is straightforward and clear

When you choose Crash of Rhinos, you know exactly what you are getting. We don’t sneak in any extra services or costs or try to sell you on things you don’t need. We are there to complete a job for you and make sure you are happy when we leave.

Here’s what makes our paint warranty policy different

At Crash of Rhinos Painting, we offer a seven-year paint warranty. It’s one of the things that makes us different.

In this blog, we’ll dive into just what makes our warranty special, and why an effective exterior painting warranty really matters to you as a homeowner—and says about the company.

Pictured: Crash of Rhinos seven-year paint warranty certificate7 years, versus 2 years

The state of Arizona mandates that exterior painting companies have to provide at least a two-year warranty on their work.

That may not seem like much warranty, but many other companies tend to stay at 2-3 years, not expecting the layman to know just how long paint should last.

What does a paint warranty policy actually say?

The fewer years that are in the warranty, the less confident the painting company is in its prep work, its paint, or its quality assurance process. This makes sense: if a contractor knows that their paint actually only lasts five years, they’re not going to want to guarantee it for six. They’d be out of business!

Many exterior painters stick close to the two-year minimum for two reasons: first, because they aren’t obligated to offer more and, second, because they’re not confident in their products or services, or how their paint will stand up to a beating from Arizona’s sun and monsoon weather.

What our paint warranty says about us

In contrast, Crash of Rhinos offers a seven-year warranty on our exterior painting work. That’s five years above-and-beyond the minimum requirement.

Why? It’s because we know that our superior paint (Dunn-Edwards), thorough prep work, and careful quality assurance all add up to a home painting that is going to last for seven years or longer.

Oh, and here’s another thing:

Even if an exterior painting company offers a warranty—even a longer one—be sure to ask them just how much that warranty will cost. Many companies attract customers with generous warranties that they then upcharge people for when their service is complete.

Again, to contrast, our seven-year warranty comes with our service. No extra fees. No extra upcharge. In fact, it’s something that we lay out upfront in our proposal packet. It’s something that we feel customers deserve.

Choose Crash of Rhinos Painting

When it comes to exterior painting here in Phoenix, you have many choices. However, when it comes to great, customer-trusted exterior painting companies with an included, seven-year warranty, there’s really only one right choice: Crash of Rhinos Painting.

Here’s what our proposal folder contains

Getting your home painted is a big investment, and you want to know that it’ll be done the right way. At Crash of Rhinos, we create a detailed proposal folder for each and every job, because we want you to know ahead of time what you can expect from our team.

In this blog post, we’ll run through what our proposal folder actually contains, why it’s important, and—most importantly—what it looks like.

Every home painting job we do here in the Valley starts with a free inspection. To get started, contact our team for yours.

The 5 things our proposal folders contain

#1. Scope of work

Our scope of work contains a broad overview of the project, what we’ll be painting, and a breakdown of the process. We’ll also include a timeline for the work, and notes on what you can expect from us.

The scope of work will also contain information about our thorough prep process—something that we think makes-or-breaks an exterior paint job.

#2. Information about the paint

We’re proud to use high-quality Dunn-Edwards paint on every job we do. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for many other painting companies; they’ll often use “house” paint, which is often a blend of leftovers they can acquire on the cheap.

Dunn-Edwards is specially formulated to handle the intense UV radiation we get here in Phoenix. It’s tough, durable, fade-resistant, safe, and it’s perfect for stucco homes. We’ll share more information about the paint in your packet.

#3. Notes about the warranty

Crash of Rhinos has an outstanding warranty. Exterior painting companies are required by the state of Arizona to provide a 2-year warranty on their work. Other companies typically stick to that.

Not us. We offer a 7-year warranty on our exterior paint. We’re able to do this because of the high-quality paint we use and our superior prep process—which helps the paint better adhere to your walls.

All of the details about our warranty—including how to use it if your paint starts to fade—is included in our proposal folder.

#4. Insurance documentation

Never hire an exterior home painter who isn’t licensed, bonded, and insured. An uninsured painter or uninsured company is a major liability for you and your home. If the worker is injured on the job, they can come after you, the client! If the worker breaks something, or makes a mistake, there’s nothing to protect your property.

Worse yet, some home painters will tell you they’re insured, but not back it up with documents. But, unless you ask for proof and they provide it, you can never be really sure if that insurance is up-to-date, what exactly it covers, or if it’s even real.

Of course, we’re fully protected and insured—including with workman’s comp—for your protection and ours. In our packet, we’ll include documented proof of our insurance policies.

#5. Detailed contract

Finally, our proposal folder contains a detailed contract that breaks down what everything costs, what you’ll be getting, and more.

If you’re happy with everything else in the proposal, and you’re ready to get started, complete the contract and send it back to us.

From there, we’ll get in touch with you and make arrangements to get started with either our professional color consultation or, should the color already be known, our prep work.

Here’s why winter home painting makes sense in Phoenix

Here in Phoenix, beautiful weather is on the way this winter. While the rest of the country is digging out their driveways, we’re enjoying sunshine, warm days, and family fun. Winter home painting, too, makes sense here. In this blog, we’ll review the reasons that you should call Crash of Rhinos this winter to have us repaint the exterior of your home this season.

The top-3 reasons why winter home painting is a good call

Here are the top-3 reasons that winter home painting just makes sense here in Maricopa County:

Pictured: Winter home painting makes sense in Phoenix, but not in other parts of the country.

This is what winter looks like for many homeowners in the U.S. That’s not the case here in Phoenix.

#1. Get your home ready for the holidays

Here in the Valley of the Sun, holidays can mean celebrations with families both inside the home and in the backyard. It’s not that uncommon to see many families barbecuing outside in the nice weather in December! It’s the time of year where guests are flying into Phoenix from colder, snowier parts of the country.

If you’re going to have that many guests and family visiting your home and seeing it from the outside, wouldn’t it be nice to have your stucco painting done? If it’s time for a repainting, anyway, why not get it done before the holidays and let your winter visitors marvel at how great your home looks this winter?

#2. Our climate allows for it

In most parts of the country, an exterior painting company isn’t going to advise you to paint your home in the winter, since below-freezing temperatures can stop your paint from properly bonding. Phoenix very rarely gets that cold. Most of our winter is temperate, with daytime highs in the 70s or even 80s.

More than that, winters in Phoenix are bone-dry, which is a good condition for exterior painting of stucco. In contrast, late Phoenix summers can be more problematic than winters. In most circumstances, we advise not to paint when a monsoon or haboob blows into the Valley.

Crash of Rhinos is a year-round painting company, and that’s mostly because the weather here in the Valley during the winter is an outlier compared to many other parts of the country.

#3. Close out the year right

What are your plans in 2018? One of the big reasons that Valley homeowners want us to work on their home in the winter is so that they can enter the new year with one less thing to plan or think about. A clean slate, if you will!

If you’re planning on selling your home in the coming year, getting the exterior painted now can give you more time to prep your house for sale. In this kind of housing market, that can give your home a leg up over others in the neighborhood (not to mention, a great paint job from Crash of Rhinos will help, too!).
