There are many weather events in East Longmeadow 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:

Mike did a great job selecting the appropriate color tiles. The timeline of the project was laid out and all deadlines were met or exceeded. The new roof sections were seamlessly matched to the existing roof–the workmanship is excellent The cleanup was impeccable. The entire team was very professional and great to work with. I highly recommend Rhino Back.
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.
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 was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. A phone call to them was promptly returned. Mike T scheduled an appointment to meet with my wife and I the next day. A dead tree fell on our roof and caused significant damage. Mike was able to assess the damage, recommend what needed to be done and assisted us with negotiating a settlement with our insurance company. The work was done as scheduled and completed in one day (strip damaged roof over two car garage, install ridge vent, replace shingles, replace gutters and check main roof. Clean-up was outstanding. It was a pleasure dealing with the foreman the day of the job. I am extremely pleased with the over-all experience and finished product. Rhino-Back Roofing has earned my highest recommendation.
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 was very pleased and amazed with the whole experience. Mike and team went above and beyond my expectations. Job was done on time and quality and took the time to assure all my questions and concerns were answered. Aside from being knowledgeable in roofing they demonstrated superior customer service (even interested in my feedback for improvement). I recommend them without hesitation to anyone needing roofing service. Thanks again for a great experience and wish Rhino-Back Roofing much success in the future.
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
Working with Rhinoback was as painless a process as humanly possible. I contacted 4 local companies for quotes; they were the only ones to call me back. Communication was excellent, their quote was honest and fair, they showed up when they said they would, completed the job quickly and cleaned up thoroughly. We have been putting off this project for years, and we are so relieved to have it behind us and to feel so confident in the workmanship. The thank you note and delivery of brownies was a nice touch too :-)
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.
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.
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.
Mike and his entire staff are professional, trustworthy and do an amazing job from start to finish. Highly recommend Rhino-Back. Support local!!!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
Shout out to local family business, Rhino Roofing, who just put a new roof on for us. Quick, courteous, professional staff…and the roof looks great. Thank you!!!
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.
