There are many weather events in Farmington 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 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 a refreshing experience with Rhino-back. From contract to completion, the job scope and work logistics were clear and concise. Each member of the team that we came into contact with was professional, helpful and knowledgable. The project manager fit us into the schedule and went out of his way to make us feel like we were the only clients he had.
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!
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.
Everything went great from start to finish. Mike presented a professional explanation of what they would do and what materials they would use. The contract was written specifically showing exactly what Mike had indicated. When the time came for our roof to be done Josh and his crew showed up on time, I was walked around our house and told how they were going to protect the siding and landscaping. The work was completed the same day including cleanup. Everything was perfect and done exactly as I was told. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back roofing.
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
Truly EXCEPTIONAL customer service that is a rarity to come across. High levels of communication, and everyone I worked with for the roof and gutter repair took the time to answer my questions, picked up/returned every call quickly, and kept me in the loop for dates and time for the work to take place. Roofing and gutter work itself was outstanding and areas kept very clean. Absolute pleasure to work with this company – highly recommend to anyone who is looking for roofing work.
Provided a new roof. Stripped off 2 layers of shingles. Installed 2 new skylights and re-flashed others. Did a fabulous job, showed up on time, finished on time. CLEANED UP!
I recently had my roof replaced and could not be happier. The quote is low pressure and Mike was very honest about budget and quality. It was an easy choice to pick Rhino-Back because they have such a strong reputation and back it up through good communication and honesty. I got 3 other quotes and immediately knew Rhino-Back was who I would trust for such a big investment.
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.
What makes for a great roofer? Good price, of course. But the work has to be quality and the materials top notch. They should arrive when they say they will, perform the work in a timely fashion, and clean up the area, leaving it in the condition they found it. If you agree that this describes a great roofer, then you’ve found who you are looking for in Rhino-Back Roofing in Simsbury, CT. They arrived punctually at 7 a.m. with an 8-man crew; had both layers of the old roof off by noon, and by dinner their meticulous clean-up left my property neater than they found it! Plus, they were courteous, attentive to detail, and followed up to make sure nothing had been forgotten. I would unhesitatingly call them again, and am happy to recommend them here.
Spent time figuring out our problem (ice dams and water damage) which happened to be structural. Replaced the roof on the full dormer, correcting the problem and moisture proofing. Done in less than a day and cleaned up as well. Knowledgeable and pleasant to work with.
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.
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 :-)
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.
They were great. Came on time, finished quickly – earlier than expected. Very professional. Great owners and staff. Easy to contact. They called and kept us informed on every step of the project. A storm was coming in and they stayed late to make sure the project was finished so we would not have problems with leaks. They made sure to cleanup and the workmanship is wonderful. We have dealt with many contractors (fired a few) through the years and Rhino-Back roofing is the best. We would recommend them 100% percent. Great quality, workmanship and they made that we were happy.
Lisa Trouern-Trend and her husband Mike, own Rhino Back Roofing, a local family company. They did my roof in September and were affordable and GREAT to work with. We were in a similar situation and Mike walked us through all of our options. Highly recommend.
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!
Well done, done quickly, and at a fair price. Thoroughly cleaned up after themselves. Good communication and friendly service.This Canton CT Roofing couldn't have gone better.
A new roof is a big ticket item and I sure am glad I got this one right. Mike and the entire Rhino-Back team have been outstanding! From the initial consult to signing on the line, I felt like I was making an informed decision. It was apparent that Mike wanted to educate me in the process and allow me to make my decision based on data, examples of materials and previous customer reviews. I strongly believe the price was fair for the quality, warranty and excellent customer service I received throughout the process. The installers were quick and clean. The project manager, Tim, kept me informed of scheduling and was a strong presence on install day, and Frank took care of final clean-up the following day. I hope this review helps the next person pondering the roofing decision. I have sound piece-of-mind with my decision to have selected Rhino-Back. Best Regards, Tony
