This is a first class company from top to bottom

Job went smoothly and was fully completed and cleaned with all debris removed in 2 days. Everyone involved, from the owner to the installation techs to the final clean-up tech and waste container people were thoughtful considerate individuals who truly cared about their workmanship. They were respectful at all times and well trained and skilled at their duties. After observing them working on our neighbor's roof, we did not hesitate to call; and, after speaking with Mike, were very excited to contract with him. This is a first class company from top to bottom.

Rick, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, we certainly appreciate the kind words! It was a pleasure working with you on your roofing project and the new roof looks great! Best, Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the Rhinoback Roofing Team

Everything was perfect and done exactly as I was told

Everything went great from start to finish. Mike presented a professional explanation of what they would do and what materials they would use. The contract was written specifically showing exactly what Mike had indicated. When the time came for our roof to be done Josh and his crew showed up on time, I was walked around our house and told how they were going to protect the siding and landscaping. The work was completed the same day including cleanup. Everything was perfect and done exactly as I was told. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back roofing.

Highly recommend this company

Very professional and friendly. No hard sell or bad mouthing of competitors. Took the time to explain their product, what needed to be done and answer our questions. Generous selection of colors and styles. Worked with OUR schedule, greatly appreciated considering our roof was leaking and causing interior damage. They also went to great lengths not to destroy our flower beds. Meticulous clean up when finished. Appreciated the follow up contact after work was completed. Highly recommend this company. I wish they hung sheetrock and did tree removal.

Scott, Thank you very much for taking the time to rate us her on google. The whole team really enjoyed working for you guys! I know we will stay in touch, but don't hesitate if we can help you with anything at all. Looking forward to crossing paths again soon.--- Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the Rhino-Back Roofing team.--- For others reading this review here is some project details. This roofing project on, Terrace Rd West Hartford CT 06107, was done on a single story ranch style home with a walk out basement. We stripped Scott's roof down to the plywood. Which fortunately was in good condition . Scott is going to install new vinyl siding on the house in the spring. As part of that project he will be cutting intake ventilation openings in the soffit. That's the roof overhangs on thefront and back of the house. So in preparation for that we installed a new high flow ridge vent. We applied ice and water shield around the perimeter coming up 6 feef from the run off areas. The new Roofing system also included a very high quality underpayment and extra thick drip edge metal along with other important components. There is a very low pitch porch roof on the back of the house. So we covered that completely with a special high viscosity ice and water shield product. This was especially important because if that product wasn't used there would have been a chance of problems down the road in the transition spot where the low pitch porch roof meets the standard pitched main house roof. We really enjoyed installing a new roof for this great customer in West Hartford. Thanks again Scott!

Very professional and great to work with

Mike did a great job selecting the appropriate color tiles. The timeline of the project was laid out and all deadlines were met or exceeded. The new roof sections were seamlessly matched to the existing roof–the workmanship is excellent The cleanup was impeccable. The entire team was very professional and great to work with. I highly recommend Rhino Back.

Fairly priced, knowledgeable, and willing to answer any and all questions.

This is a fantastic company to work with! They think of everything and are extremely attentive and approachable. The crew was fantastic and did a wonderful job on my roof - from set up to clean up. After getting quotes from multiple companies, Mike and his team were by far the best choice - fairly priced, knowledgeable, and willing to answer any and all questions.

Testimonial from Mort W.Kirkwood Road, West Hartford, CT

Response from Rhino-Back Roofing:

Mort- Thank you for taking the time to review us on Angies list. We really appreciate that! Josh and I enjoyed spending some time with you. Never hesitate to call if we can help you with anything at all. Here is some project information for others reading this review. We stripped a very problematic portion of the roof on this colonial style home on Kirkwood Road in West Hartford CT 06117. The area had a transition between an extremely low pitch and a standard pitch, which in and of itself can cause problems. On top of that there were 3 skylights. 1 was located on the low pitch section and 2 on the standard pitch. On this type of roof set up, with so many penetrations on low pitch, there is very little margin for error. The existing low pitched skylight was an improper product application. It was something called a deck mounted skylight, which is built for more of a standard pitch roof. So it had been leaking intermittently. There were also problems with the transition between the low and high pitched areas, and at the base of the other 2 skylights. Once the roof was stripped we removed some siding to be able to run a modified asphalt flat roofing product up the sidewalls, onto the very low pitched area and a few feet up the standard pitched area. That area was too shallow for standard roofing shingles. We also installed, and cemented in, the appropriate kind of skylights including the recommended factory flashing kits. We finished off by applying a high grade ice and water shield, synthetic underlayment, and shingles up the standard pitch portion of the roof. Finally we reinstalled the vinyl siding that had been removed. This was a very complicate roof installation. But we were very thankful to be able to help Mort and his wife, and know their home is well protected.

Never felt so confident, that this was the best job ever.

Very professional , and pleasant to work with. Crew came after dumpster delivered, and they worked all day, prepared the house with tarp to cover shrubs, and cleaned up all day after themselves . Very attentive to your needs, and very helpful thru the first interview with Mike, who took the time to show me the whole process, and got me in as soon as possible, as I had a leak. Josh, the supervisor, was in and out all day, and very helpful, too. I have lived in my home 40yrs and this is my 3 roof. Never felt so confident, that this was the best job ever. Thanks Mike.
