There are many weather events in Agawam that can cause roof damage, not the least of which is high winds. Storms any time of year may come with high winds, which can lead to severe effects on roofs. When wind storms aren't accompanied by hail or excessive rain, many people don't give a second thought to their potential roof damage. However, these winds add severe pressure to roof shingles and often cause roof damage.
It's hard to always prevent roof damage from strong winds but a properly installed roof system is your best ally. A well constructed roof can resist wind damage, saving you money down the road.
These are key elements of a wind resistant roof:

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.
Great overall experience; very thorough cleanup; very easy organization to work with!
Can only echo what others have said. Mike really made the sale with an ultra-thorough description of what they do, from the materials and methods to the logistical details and the warranty that all that provides. And at a competitive price, too. The actual crew was great, worked incredibly hard and completed the roof in a single day. We had an excellent experience with this company.
The people at Rhino-Back Roofing are the most professional and courteous I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. They sincerely care about their customers and want you to be happy and satisfied and will do whatever is necessary to ensure that. I had dealings with several personnel at Rhino-Back over the course of the roof replacement on my home and all were easy to talk to and helpful. I would highly recommend them for any roofing needs.
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.
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.
We decided to replace our existing roof so we contacted three local area contractors. One was more of larger company doing roofing all over CT, the other two were local guys. The larger company gave us a solid quote, but the person who came and looked at the roof was a total salesman. We had some questions about the roof that he could not answer but said he would have someone call us. The other local guy missed the scheduled time then did a drive by the house, providing a good quote, but never even talked to us. Then there was Mike from Rhino. Mike showed up on-time and was very friendly. He looked over the whole roof and even went into the attic to get a good feel for the job. He then spent about an hour taking us through the job, answering all our questions right on the spot. It was obvious he knew his stuff! Gave us outstanding advise that kept us from spending on unneeded modifications to the roof. Mike gave us a very solid quote. He was not as cheap as the larger company, but it was clear we would get an outstanding product from him and his team. I think that the other company was making up the costs on ridge vents along with some other cost cutting adjustments that Mike advised against. We took Mike’s advice and could not be happier. Josh, Mikes project manager was awesome. The team showed up on-time and knocked out the job in two days and we have a big house. They were so friendly and helpful, we cannot say enough positive things about the guys. As for the roof, it looks awesome!! Mike helped us pick the color and he was spot on! We love it! 10 for 10 for Rhino-back roofing – the entire team. It was worth paying a bit more for such quality work and advice.
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.
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.
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!
Rhino-Back did an excellent job, on time and on budget. They completed the work in one day and did a thorough job of post installation cleanup, even coming back after the job to clean up screened in porch that had roof removal debris in hard to reach places. I would recommend them to anyone who wants the best roofing products installed by a professional, accountable contractor.
Five-star customer service, quality, and timeliness. Tim North, the on-site manager, was present at my home at all times ensuring me that everything was on track. They went above and beyond and I highly recommend them for all your roofing needs.
We had a wonderful experience with Rhino-Back Roofing. Mike, Tim and their team were amazing to work with. Their attention to detail made them a step above any other roofing company. We are very happy with the finished product of our roof and skylight . They left our yard and the work area spotless after the work was finished. We will definitely be using them again for future roofing needs and would highly recommend them for your roofing needs as well! Thank you again Mike and Team!
The roofing project went great! Starting with the initial estimate, Mike, the owner, was very clear and enthusiastic in presenting his company and the shingle roofing system they use. His pricing was also very reasonable. He was flexible on the start date as he knew I was starting a new job soon and wanted to be home the day of the job. On that day, Josh, the project supervisor was here about a half hour earlier than the start time. He was friendly and easy to talk to and answered any last questions I had as he explained how the job would proceed. The roofing team arrived a little early and immediately got to work. It was really amazing how energetic and efficient his crew was. They were nonstop action from beginning to end aside from a well deserved lunch break and finished the job in one day. I was expecting it would take two days so was pleasantly surprised. They also cleaned up my property very well and Josh even stopped by the next day to do a more detailed cleanup of smaller material. Finally, Mike followed up with a phone call a few days after completion to see if I had any questions or concerns. Rhino-Back did a great job and I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a roof replacement or any type of roof work!
Mike & Josh at Rhino-Back were outstanding to work with. We were closing on a home in Simsbury and discovered it needed a new roof. Mike went out to look the very next day to give an assessment – knowing that we were under a tight deadline with our close and with a snow storm on the way. He did an excellent job clearly explaining all of the work he was going to do, and kept in touch every step of the way. Josh was able to start and finish putting our roof on two days after we closed on the house and the day before the snow hit – it was the quickest, cleanest job I’ve ever seen, and we couldn’t be happier with the way it came out. We would definitely recommend Rhino-Back to anyone.
I just want to give a shout out to Rhino Back Roofing. We hired them to do a new roof and even though the job was complicated by our home’s structural problems, they took it in stride and were wonderful with communication. The crew was friendly, hardworking and professional. The site manager was great!! Thanks Mike And company!
Mike and his team were extremely helpful at solving our complex roofing needs, (flat leaking roof with very poor drainage). They worked exceptionally well with our schedule and put our needs first and foremost. The job was completed extremely fast and efficiently and beyond our expectations. The best part is everything is the warranty is for much longer than we ever expected. Definitely recommend Rhino-Back Roofing for your roofing needs!
We had hail damage and the whole experience was amazing from dealing with insurance and keeping me updated to super friendly and knowledgeable staff to professional and courteous installation team. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again or recommend them. I like them so much we're working on getting my siding replaced next! Thanks, Mike, Melanie, and the whole gang!
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
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. Please consider using them if you are in need of a roof. I assure you that you will be pleased you did.
