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!!!

Response from Rhino-Back Roofing:

Nathan & Jessica, Thank you very much for your kind review. And congratulations on your 1st home! You guys we great. The Project went smoothly and we agree the new garage and breezeway roof looks great! Let's make sure to stay in touch and please reach out to us if we can serve you in anyway, business or beyond--- Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the Rhino-Back Roofing team.

They were competitive in price in the area, are committed to the community, and the work is top notch

Great communication, very customer focused, competitive pricing and a very experienced crew. Mike is running a stellar company; Josh (the foreman for our house) was extremely personable and spent plenty of time walking me around the day (single - they did our roof in about 7 hours) explaining what was going on. They were competitive in price in the area, are committed to the community, and the work is top notch. We're so happy with the work (and the look of the new roof!), we've recommended them to at least 3 friends. You won't be disappointed.

VERY professional company and wonderful to work with.

Just had our roof done, and couldn't be happier with the results. VERY professional company and wonderful to work with. Mike and his team were so great to work with , and extremely knowledgable on every aspect of the process. They not only completed the roof on time and in one day , but we're also very thorough with clean up and even offered to come back at some point to clean up any nails that may have landed in the snow ( roof done in December). Great company .

Kristina & Bob-It was such a pleasure to work with you, you guys are fantastic! Please keep in touch, and let us know if there is anything we can help you with in the future! - Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the Rhino-back Roofing Team. For those of you reading this review, here is a brief recap of this roofing project in Canton, CT: Kristina & Bob contacted us because they were very concerned about the condition of the roof on their Hilltop Drive home in Canton CT 06019. With winter fast approaching they wanted to have the roof replaced as soon as possible. In years past this fantastic couple had dealt with leaking and ice damage and did not want to find themselves in that position again. Several areas showed evidence of leaking and water damage. After reviewing all aspects of the job and what to expect before, during, and after we began by stripping the existing 2 layers of shingles and underlayment down to the plywood decking. Once the condition of the plywood was assessed and replaced where needed we then cut and installed a new ridge vent on the breezeway section of the home, as well as a new attic exhaust fan to provide proper ventilation for the new roof. We applied Ice & Water protection along all eaves, valleys, vents, and pipes, and also reflashed and sealed the home’s small chimney. After applying a protective synthetic underlayment to the remaining decking we then were able to install gorgeous new architectural shingles. The home is now completely protected from the elements and with is properly ventilated, Kristina & Bob were fantastic to work with, and Bob even cleared snow from around his home before our crews arrived! The new roof looks wonderful and will provide peace of mind and protection for many, many winters to come.

Fantastic service, competitive pricing.

Fantastic service, competitive pricing. Mike communicated what needed to be done during the quoting process and Josh reached out during the installation and updated me with the progress (I was out of town at the time). I came home to a new roof and a very clean yard!!! Thanks Rhinoback!

Edmund, Thank you so much for the kind review! It was a pleasure to work with you, and we are so happy that we were able to help you with your home! Please feel free to reach out if we can be of any help to you in the future, and we look forward to seeing you around town. Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the entire Rhinoback Team For those of you reading this review, this Simsbury, CT home was in need of a full roof replacement. Edmund reached out to us on the recommendation of a neighbor and we were happy to help! The day before work was scheduled to begin, material was delivered to the home and the following morning we arrived to begin stripping the existing 25 year old roof down to the decking, making sure to inspect the integrity of the plywood and replaced one sheet that was damaged. We then installed a high-quality Ice & Water Shield along all eaves, valleys, and around 2 chimneys that we also refreshed to ensure that the home would be protected from the rain and snow. We applied a synthetic underlayment to the remainder of the roof, and finished with beautiful lifetime architectural shingles that will provide superior protection for many, many years to come. After the roof itself was complete all waste and materials were properly disposed of and the yard thoroughly cleaned. This job was completed in one day and the home looks great!

Best Experience I've ever had with a contractor.

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 have never had a better experience than we had dealing with Rhinoback

have been a homeowner for 35 years, and in that time I have hired many different contractors for many different jobs. In all seriousness, we have never had a better experience than we had dealing with Rhino-back roofing. This company is exceptional in terms of service, professionalism, promptness- any measure you want to use. Mike thoroughly explained the work they would do, the materials they would use, and the process in a no pressure at all quote. Josh and his crew had to reschedule due to heavy rain in the forecast twice-and each time called well ahead and scheduled a prompt (i.e. just a few days later) new date. They arrived promptly, worked great and the clean-up was terrific. Looking at the ground you would never know they were here- but one look at the roof and you could tell- it looks great! I teach at UConn and my students will tell you that they get only the grade they earn. Rhino-back earns an A+. I highly recommend them!

I would highly recommend Rhinoback for your next roofing project.

Rhino Back was one of the best contractors that I have worked with in a long time. Mike and Josh were very professional as well as there crew. The job was completed in one day, and they even sent someone back the following day to make sure that the cleanup was done to perfection. I received pricing from 4 other contractors and they fell in the middle. I would highly recommend Rhino Back for your next roofing project. Its was nice to work with a company that cares about there customers.

We would highly recommend this Rhino Back crew to everyone

This is the first time I have been involved with hiring a firm for a big project. The roof is large with a high pitch and several sections. I was really nervous. I have to say the Mike (the owner) made this process so easy and it couldn't have been a better experience. Mike arrived promptly for our initial meeting . He presented himself in a professional, yet friendly manner. Our roofing project was described to us in great detail and he took great care in answering each and every one of our questions. Mike's passion for his job was evident. After selecting Rhino Back to do the job, we were pleased to see that the crew (supervised by Josh who was also great to work with) arrived on time each morning. Care was taken to protect our many plants and the clean-up process was very thorough. Our roof, gutters and skylights look great. We would highly recommend this Rhino Back crew to everyone.

Response from Rhino-Back Roofing:

Micky, Thank you so much for the great review! We were so happy to be able to help with your roofing project and really enjoyed working with you. Please keep in touch and let us know if there is anything we can do for you in the future. Regards, Mike & Lisa Trouern-Trend and the Rhinoback Roofing Team. For those of you reading this review, Micky contacted us because she was ready to replace the roof on her entire Windsor CT 06095 home, which was about 25 years old and showing signs of wear. After providing a step-by-step explanation of the process and selecting the new shingle color we arrived early the morning that work was scheduled to begin. Our crew began to strip the Aster Place home's roof down to the plywood decking, making sure that the decking was in good condition before we began applying a high-quality Ice and Water Shield on all eaves, valleys, and high risk areas. We also installed 4 new skylights and flashing, and a new bathroom vent. A synthetic underlayment was applied to the remainder of the roof. We then installed lifetime architectural shingles in a Slatestone Gray color that nicely complimented the exterior of the home. Once the work was complete the dumpster and excess materials were hauled away, and our crew began their thorough cleanup of the Windsor CT property. The roof looks fantastic and will provide the home with protection from the elements for many years to come!
