Ceramic painting house diy (rhino shield)

Coworkers were looking into rhino shielding their house but it was extremely expensive. I know ceramic paint can be ordered. Can I do my own house painting with ceramic paint? I read it requires 2 coats. Are both coats the same paint or is there a primer involved? It seems like a good home upgrade if I can do it myself. Thanks!

IMO ceramic paint is just some marketing hype and the ceramic does nothing to make the paint last or preform better, you'd be better off doing the needed proper prep and applying a coat or two of a quality latex house paint.

Here is a post from last year with same discussion, nobody has been able, that I am aware of, to prove that the paint is anything different.

Plus as noted, it's always about the prep that makes the big difference!!

Thanks for the info and link. For some reason the post did not come up when I searched rhino before posting. I've been on a kick to make some upgrades around the home and thought painting once and be done was a good idea. I know just a regular good paint job is much cheaper. My friend went that way after hearing to extreme price of rhino shield. I think they quoted 20k then 15k to paint his 2000ft 1 story ranch. Thanks again for the input.

OMG, my mom just had her 2 story 2300 sq ft house painted last year for $3500 and it was an excellent job, even by my standards.

What was that saying, one born every minute?
