Every aspect of the process went impeccably

Every aspect of the process went impeccably, from my first meeting with Mike to the time that the roof was completed. Mike carefully explained the complete process in full detail and everything went according to plan. His staff is kind and courteous and his team of installers is highly skilled and take great pride in their work. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing, to family, neighbors and friends.

Response from Rhino-Back Roofing:

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!

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.

Mike, Josh and the entire crew are awesome!

Mike, Josh and the entire crew are awesome! They are friendly, prompt, caring and professional. Everything from our initial meeting with Mike to the cleanup after the job was finished was wonderful.

Melanie and Jermaine, Thank you very much for the very kind review. It was a pleasure to work for you. It was good we got a little break in the weather so we could get the rubber roof on the dormer you were having problems with before you had a bunch of snow up there. Please let's make sure to stay in touch, and I'm sure I'll see you around town. --- Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend & the whole Rhino-Back Roofing team.

The results are spectacular and it looks like a new home!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rhino Back Roofing from start to finish. Mike, Josh and the rest of the team are consummate professionals during every phase of the process.

Laurie-We really enjoyed meeting you and helping you with your roofing project, you were wonderful to work with! Thank you so much for the kind words, and please stay in touch! Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the Rhino-Back Roofing Team.

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.

Their quality of work was excellent and the job was done in two days

Mike and his team are awesome…highly recommend! We needed a new roof last year after it was damaged from the terrible winter weather. We had leaking in our kitchen and ice dams all over the roof. We looked at a few companies before deciding to use Mike and his team. Mike seemed like he truly cared and didn’t treat us as just a number. He was very thorough with his estimate, answered all the questions we had, and even helped us provide the necessary info to our insurance company. Their quality of work was excellent and the job was done in two days. Mike even came back a few times to check and make sure everything was as it should be and our rain guard was working properly. Highly recommend them…look no further, Mike’s your guy!

Rhino-Back provided excellent service

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.

Response from Rhino-Back Roofing:

Sheri & Larry Thank you very much for the kind review! We are glad you had such a good experience having us work for you. let's make sure to stay in touch and see you around town. Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend & the Rhino-Back Roofing Team For others that see this review this home is a nice colonial in Simsbury CT. We completely stripped the existing roof and installed a new architectural shingle roofing system. The chimney was re-flashed. a blue tone shingle was used. The house looks great!!

They did the preliminary checkup in a much more thorough manner than any other company.

They did a great job. They deserve to have good feedback. I was satisfied that they knew about the problems with my roof. They did the preliminary checkup in a much more thorough manner than any other company. Rhino came in and told me up front what the problems were and what they could do. My house was built in 1938, but they were able to assess it very quickly and correctly. I would like to recognize Mike, the installer, and Josh, the foreman. They are both very open, straightforward, and did a good job. I don’t normally do these things, did such a good job that I wanted to make sure they got my positive feedback.
