If you think you might have wind or hail damage on your Farmington, CT roof, now is the time to get help!
These are questions we can help you answer. At Rhino-Back Roofing, our local Farmington roofers are experts in helping homeowners navigate the very confusing process of roof storm damage restoration.
Rhino Back Roofing was professional from day one. We had several contractors come to our home to inspect our roof and give us estimates for a new roof. Mike did a very complete inspection – far more than the other representatives from other companies. When he was done, he provided us with a very clear estimate for his services. He helped us to understand the entire process and what to expect every step of the way. Despite the difficult spring weather, he was excellent about communicating with us about when he would come to complete the project. When he and his crew arrived, we were very impressed with their quality of work, attention to detail, and seamless teamwork to complete the roof in less than a full day. The crew members were incredible! We have lots of delicate landscaping around our home and we were very concerned about the damage that might occur. When they were done cleaning up, we were astonished to see that nothing was damaged. Removing two layers of shingles and plywood is certainly messy, but their clean up far exceeded my expectations. Mike even came by after the dumpster was removed and did a final clean up and inspection. We have yet to find a nail or shingle around our house. The quality of the roofing materials and the roof guarantee was far better than others offered; yet Mike’s prices were the same as the others. His communication and follow-through also far exceeded my expectations. The final cost was actually a little less than his estimate and we could not be happier with the new roof.
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!
Mike’s team of roofers were very good. They came, removed the old shingles and put the new one on in a day and left my property spotless. I had been having an issue with leaking around the chimney and they took the time after removing the shingles to let me inspect the plywood to understand what was causing the issue (step flashing and disintegrated ice and water shield after 20 years). I had been set to go with another roofer when Mike happened to contact me and ask me if I was interested in getting a quote for a new roof. His price was in line with other estimates, but I really liked working with Mike because he answered all my questions and didn’t mind that I asked lots of question. And if he didn’t have an answer, he got back to me with an answer. He and Josh were also very good at keeping me posted in terms of start date, delivery of dumpster, etc and they were easy to get a hold of. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing.
My wife and I shopped this job the best we could. We requested quotes from four companies for our roof replacement, skylight replacement and chimney repair of which two of the companies were referred by neighbors. Two of the four were not able to quote the chimney repair but the quotes were itemized so we were able to compare apples to apples. The difference between the highest and the lowest was $1,500 on the roof replacement. The shingles offered were Corning and Timberline. We read every review we could find on both and found that Corning had a slight edge because it has a nailing strip. This wasn’t a make or break difference. We had four quotes from well-reviewed and experienced roofing contractors so we based our decision on who we thought would be the most likely to do the best job, expert and clear communication on remedy for existing roof leak and ice damming, the most likely to return to fix a problem, price and value. Rhino-Back Roofing was the clear choice. The job took three days, the roof looks great, the skylights fit perfect and the chimney looks awesome. The service was professional and the cleanup was good.
Iâ€™m so glad to be a part of SMU. After a handful of roofing contractors fell through I came to you for guidance then Rhino Back Roofing came to my rescue. The next day after contacting them, they came out to access my situation and offered great advice! Not to mention the customer service was amazing! Thank you!
Excellent! Mike (owner) and his crew (led by on site foreman, Caesar) reported to the job at the appointed time. They answered all my pre work questions and concerns and began work. They proceeded to strip the previous roof and replace the existing skylight in less than a day. I am so impressed with their workmanship and the results. Mike was back several times during the day to check on progress and address any possible complications. Stripping the original materials and dropping them in a designated area resulted in a spotless cleanup of a messy job. They were done in a day and when they left you could not tell that they were there, as my deck (drop area) was spotless. Their work has enhanced the value of my property at a very fair price.
Complete roof replacement on 1904 home in historic district. Cedar shakes under two layers of asphalt removed, complete new decking, ice and water shield, replaced flashing where needed. Complex job, lots of dormers and odd angles. Mike and his crew were professional, thorough, punctual and efficient. The whole thing finished on budget and on schedule. When we encountered an unanticipated situation, they worked with us to find an economical and effective solution. I felt like part of the process from start to finish. All aspects were explained thoroughly from the day of the estimate, which was much appreciated. They cleaned up the site very well when finished. They showed up,when they said they would, and finished when they said they would. All around a very positive experience.
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!!!
Finally after 28 years I needed a new roof and wanted a professional reputable local contractor. I met with 3 other area contractors in addition to Mike from Rhino Roofing, Simsbury,CT. I settled on Rhino roof company for my project and am extremely glad I did. The workmanship, crew, professionalism, knowledge & follow up by Mike & his staff from Rhino was exceptional, smooth & stress free. I highly recommend Mike & the staff at Rhino Back Roofing. After all my research I am convinced Rhino Back Roofing is the cream of the crop!!!! Save yourself time & energy call Mike & choose Rhino Back Roofing, Simsbury,CT …….I did!
I am very happy that I chose Rhino Back Roofing to replace my roof. From the estimate to the project’s completion and follow up Rhino Back provided excellent service. Mike’s informative overview of the project process and materials used was a step above his competition in terms of detail and genuine attentiveness to my questions. He also scheduled the project to meet my time schedule. The project itself was completed quickly and professionally by six of the hardest working people I have ever seen. Josh, their foreman, carefully supervised his crew and checked in with me to answer any questions I had. Indeed, Josh and Mike’s affability were significant in making the project go smoothly and with a minimum of stress. At this time I am comfortable recommending Rhino Back Roofing without qualification. I think you will find that they go the extra mile to satisfy their customers.
Kudos to the entire Rhino-Back Roofing team. Mike and Melanie did a great job for us. Starting at documenting the hail damage with the insurance company to answering all of our questions through out the whole project. The roofing team was careful of shrubs and property, skillful and very efficient through out the installation of multiple roofs on two structures. Management, staff, and tradesmen and women were consistently courteous and accommodating of our needs. Many thanks to all of you.
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.
The experience was outstanding from beginning to end. The work was done in a single day which was amazing. The cleanup was good and pretty thorough. And the roof looks beautiful. We’d highly recommend Rhino Back Roofing.
Our experience with Rhino Back Roofing almost seemed too good to be true. That feeling prevailed from the point when Mike arrived (right on time) for our estimate to the final walk-around inspection with the project manager, Josh, to assure that we were completely satisfied with our new roof installation. Mike spent far more time with us during the estimate than any other contractor. After doing a thorough inspection and measurement of our roof edges, roof surfaces, perimeter trim, and fascia boards he sat down with us and went through what materials would be used and why and walked us through the old roof removal, repair measures, and new roof installation. He answered our questions in a professional and knowledgeable manner then stepped out to his car to work up our estimate. Several minutes later he knocked on the door and handed us a printed and very detailed estimate that was competitive with other estimates we had received. Everything happened when and how it was promised. The installation crew was amazing. They were efficient and hard working. The on-site carpenter replaced all the rotted fascia, soffits, and trim while the crew installed the full perimeter drip edge and underlayment materials exactly as specified. The roof area around the chimney was waterproofed, the chimney was re-leaded and then the new roof shingles were installed. During the entire process, the crew was all business; each member seemed to know exactly where he needed to be and what to do, so things moved very quickly. Clean up was thorough. The driveway and lawn were swept and raked until there was no debris visible. Finally, a magnetic roller was run up and down the driveway and all around the house multiple times to pick up any roofing nails that might be left on the ground. We are very pleased with our new roof! Having watched the entire installation process, we can say that everything we asked for was done perfectly and every part of the roof system was installed with meticulous care. If you’re looking for excellent customer service and a quality roof, we would enthusiastically recommend Rhino Back Roofing.
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 Canton CT Roofing job was done and they all wanted to know who did the work!
A truly amazing, unexpected experience! Begins with a meeting by Mike, a review of your needs, and a professional quote of the work to be performed. Mike recites precisely what we should expect and, in detail, how it will occur. After speaking with a few other roofers, there was no question, this was the personable company to hire! Extremely professional workers who performed an impeccable job! After watching neighbors replacing their roof with other companies, these same neighbors replied personally to me how amazing this job was and could not believe it only took ONE day! I shared in their amazement as that aspect, although Mike said probably 1 day, was difficult to believe. I'm a believer now! If you're seeking a roofer, don't waste your time with others. THIS is the company to hire, hands down!
Love, love, love my new roof. An investment like this can be rather daunting but Rhino Back Roofing made it to easy. Out of the 5 contractors I reached out to, Mike spent the most time with us. He explained everything in detail, what he recommends, why he uses the products he does and answered all our questions. He is very knowledgeable and you can tell very passionate about his business. The team came and finished the roof in 1.5 days. They worked very hard, were very polite and did a good job cleaning up. The project manager Josh was onsite during the entire job and made sure everything was being done correctly and to answer any of our questions. The tiles we picked out look great on the house: Sedona Canyon. Its hard to tell from looking at a small sample. Mike worked with us, showed us multiple colors and also felt it Sedona Canyon would look good. Highly recommend Rhino Back Roofing. Thank you Mike, Josh and team!
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.
Workers showed up exactly on time and immediately went to work removing old roof. Started at 7am and had new roof on and cleanup completed before the end of the day. Entire process was fully explained beforehand. Best experience I've ever had with a contractor.
I cannot say enough good things about Rhino-Back Roofing. The level of service and professionalism, paired with the end result, is far beyond anything I could have hoped for with this project. From the very beginning, Mike and his team were available, informative and made us feel part of the family. We just moved into our very first New England home and found we needed a FULL roof replacement. Here are a few points that highlighted the process for me: • Very detailed initial consultation (complete with attic walk-thru). • Convenient and timely scheduling of work (within 2 weeks). • Fair and equitable pricing. • Top of the line products. • Single day full roof replacement and same day clean up. • Amazing end product and follow up that it met our expectations. This final piece is key and speaks to the character of the company and its owner. A few days after completion, I noticed some damage to my back deck. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if this was already there but I called Mike to see what my options were and get his opinion. I didn’t even have to ask and Mike had someone out to take a look within an hour and called me back that night to let me know he was arranging for someone to replace that portion of the deck! To be clear, this was almost certainly a pre-existing issue due to some natural rotting. However, since the issue may have been accelerated by his crew, he wanted to take care of it. Now THAT is how you build a reputation. Thank you, Rhino-Back Roofing. Thank you, Mike. Zack
