Affordable and GREAT to work with.

Lisa Trouern-Trend and her husband Mike, own Rhino Back Roofing, a local family company. They did my roof in September and were affordable and GREAT to work with. We were in a similar situation and Mike walked us through all of our options. Highly recommend.

I would recommend Rhino-Back to my neighbors

Everything was completed as promised, crew arrived bright and early, entire job finished in one day, no surprises or extra costs, and looks great! Mike was very professional, explained everything thoroughly and was helpful in deciding the best options for the job. Josh and the 7-man crew were great, hard-working, cleaned up everything when finished. I would recommend Rhino-Back to my neighbors.

Highly recommend the Rhino-Back Roofing. The whole roofing project was completed very quickly.

Mike is a thoughtful, hard-working, ambitious, professional businessman. He gives excellent communication about what to expect, about deliveries and about any interference with the schedule due to weather conditions. He and his 6-man crew are dependable, work fast and leave the work area immaculate when job is completed. Mike is very knowledgeable about materials used and explains everything to the customer. We are more than satisfied with this man’s work. Highly recommend the Rhino-Back Roofing. The whole roofing project was completed very quickly. Excellent overall experience.

They were great. Came on time, finished quickly – earlier than expected. Very professional. Great owners and staff.

They were great. Came on time, finished quickly – earlier than expected. Very professional. Great owners and staff. Easy to contact. They called and kept us informed on every step of the project. A storm was coming in and they stayed late to make sure the project was finished so we would not have problems with leaks. They made sure to cleanup and the workmanship is wonderful. We have dealt with many contractors (fired a few) through the years and Rhino-Back roofing is the best. We would recommend them 100% percent. Great quality, workmanship and they made that we were happy.

They worked quickly and efficiently. The work was done when Michael told us they’d be done, and they even CLEANED UP after themselves.

Michael advised us what was going to happen and when. His team arrived when they said they would. They worked quickly and efficiently. The work was done when Michael told us they’d be done, and they even CLEANED UP after themselves. My wife was enthusiastic about that last part. So much that she noted that she wised I’d clean up after myself the way Rhino-Back Roofing does. And best of all, our roof looks AMAZING. I’ve got three compliments from friends since the work was done and they all wanted to know who did the work!

Rhino-Back Roofing is a fantastic company and I can't say enough good things about them

Rhino-Back Roofing is a fantastic company and I can't say enough good things about them. I have a beautiful new roof and chimney as of today! Working with Mike is like working with your best friend! He's genuine, friendly, and honest and makes you feel at ease and comfortable. He really cares about getting you the best roof for the best price, and will do anything it takes! We interviewed several roofers and Mike's price was very competitive (actually I think it was the lowest bid even though he had the best Owens Corning materials and warranty). He was very patient with me when I had questions, explaining all my options and the pro's and con's of different methods. When I preferred adding a ridge vent and soffit vents rather than the roof top fan that he recommended, he gave me a price using both methods. I ultimately chose the ridge and soffit vents and his supervisor, Josh cut the soffit vents himself the day before installation. When I thought we needed a few more vents, Josh added 3 more on installation day at no additional charge!. Since a tree had damaged the back eave of the garage, Mike said he'd take care of that for us, and Josh replaced the plywood, back eave and gutter. Josh is an expert craftsman and the result is beautiful! My roof was leaking over my porch and when the tarp we installed failed, Mike pushed up my roof installation date to accommodate me and get the job done. Mike is very involved from start to finish and kept me informed every step of the way. Both he and Josh returned every phone call and text immediately or within a couple of hours. When I woke up on installation day and realized I hadn't asked Mike to include my shed roof, I asked Josh if he could possibly do the shed also. Since they'd ordered extra shingles, they had enough to do my shed and got that done too! The house, garage and shed were done in one day and Josh was on hand all day answering my questions and taking me for a walk around to see the work being done. The roofing crew were professional, courteous and very hard working on a very cold and windy day! I enjoyed talking to them from time to time and was amazed at the beautiful work they were doing. They made sure I had clear access to my doorways as I went in and out during the day, raking away leaves and nails for me. They did an amazing clean up job, even raking all the stubborn leaves from under my bushes along the house. It was like having a fall cleanup crew free of charge! When Josh inspected my chimney the day before installation, he said it would need a rebuild within the year. Since I'd taken out a low interest Energy Conservation Loan from Capital for Change, I wanted get the chimney done immediately in order to add the cost of the chimney rebuild to my loan, which would require completing new paperwork and a few days delay in payment to the roof crew. Mike was completely understanding, patient and helpful, getting me the new paperwork I needed for the loan. He quickly lined up a chimney mason and crew, and within 5 days of the roof installation, the chimney was done (today!). I highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing with no reservations! Working with Mike was the best experience a girl (or woman with not roofing knowledge) could ask for. Choose Rhino-Back Roofing! You won't be disappointed!

Granby Roofing Project

My Fiance and I live in Granby, CT and had Rhino Back replace our garage and walkway roof recently. It went about as well as it could possibly go. While it was a struggle to get other roofers we contacted to even call us back, Mike and his crew contacted us within a 1/2 hour of our initial inquiry online and he personally came out to look at the job the next day. After we made a deposit and picked out a color the crew was out there in a week or so. We left for work and when we got back we had a new roof!! They left the area cleaner then it was before they got there. And now we have a roof thats good for the next 50 yrs and a no questions asked warranty that transfers to the next owner. We probably could have found someone cheaper and saved a couple hundred bucks, but for what we got and how easy it was, the money was totally worth it. Mike even sent us brownies and a christmas card for crying out loud!!!

The Project went smoothly and we agree the new garage and breezeway roof looks great!

Their professionalism, kindness, and thoroughness made the whole experience pleasant and hassle-free.

Rhino-Back Roofing came highly recommended to us when we had some leaking issues on our porch. I am happy to say that their professionalism, kindness, and thoroughness made the whole experience pleasant and hassle-free. Mike is extremely prompt and responsive, answering all questions and explaining everything in great detail. He is very knowledgeable and helped me, someone who knows nothing at all about home repairs, understand the ins and outs of a roof replacement. I was very confident after our first meeting. The actual job went great with updates and explanations along the way from Josh. Our yard was cleaned exceptionally well and now we are enjoying our beautiful new roof! Thank you so much!

The entire process from looking over my roof, the estimate, the setup, scheduling, and the actual roof replacement was handled professionally and expertly.

Recently I had my roof replaced by RHINO-BACK ROOFING. I am more than pleased at the way the roof came out. It is in my estimation a beautiful roof. The entire process from looking over my roof, the estimate, the setup, scheduling, and the actual roof replacement was handled professionally and expertly. Mike Trouern-Trend from Rhino-Back handled the entire job very professionally. He listened to my questions and concerns and handled everything in a courteous and timely manner. I would recommend Rhino-Back Roofing and Mike to anyone needing a roof replacement. In addition to replacing my roof he also replaced my sky-light in my attic. All the work was done to my complete satisfaction.
