There are many weather events in Simsbury 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’s team of roofers were very good. They came, removed the old shingles and put the new one on in a day and left my property spotless. I had been having an issue with leaking around the chimney and they took the time after removing the shingles to let me inspect the plywood to understand what was causing the issue (step flashing and disintegrated ice and water shield after 20 years). I had been set to go with another roofer when Mike happened to contact me and ask me if I was interested in getting a quote for a new roof. His price was in line with other estimates, but I really liked working with Mike because he answered all my questions and didn’t mind that I asked lots of question. And if he didn’t have an answer, he got back to me with an answer. He and Josh were also very good at keeping me posted in terms of start date, delivery of dumpster, etc and they were easy to get a hold of. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing.
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.
Rhino-Back Roofing is a fantastic company and I can't say enough good things about them. I have a beautiful new roof and chimney as of today! Working with Mike is like working with your best friend! He's genuine, friendly, and honest and makes you feel at ease and comfortable. He really cares about getting you the best roof for the best price, and will do anything it takes! We interviewed several roofers and Mike's price was very competitive (actually I think it was the lowest bid even though he had the best Owens Corning materials and warranty). He was very patient with me when I had questions, explaining all my options and the pro's and con's of different methods. When I preferred adding a ridge vent and soffit vents rather than the roof top fan that he recommended, he gave me a price using both methods. I ultimately chose the ridge and soffit vents and his supervisor, Josh cut the soffit vents himself the day before installation. When I thought we needed a few more vents, Josh added 3 more on installation day at no additional charge!. Since a tree had damaged the back eave of the garage, Mike said he'd take care of that for us, and Josh replaced the plywood, back eave and gutter. Josh is an expert craftsman and the result is beautiful! My roof was leaking over my porch and when the tarp we installed failed, Mike pushed up my roof installation date to accommodate me and get the job done. Mike is very involved from start to finish and kept me informed every step of the way. Both he and Josh returned every phone call and text immediately or within a couple of hours. When I woke up on installation day and realized I hadn't asked Mike to include my shed roof, I asked Josh if he could possibly do the shed also. Since they'd ordered extra shingles, they had enough to do my shed and got that done too! The house, garage and shed were done in one day and Josh was on hand all day answering my questions and taking me for a walk around to see the work being done. The roofing crew were professional, courteous and very hard working on a very cold and windy day! I enjoyed talking to them from time to time and was amazed at the beautiful work they were doing. They made sure I had clear access to my doorways as I went in and out during the day, raking away leaves and nails for me. They did an amazing clean up job, even raking all the stubborn leaves from under my bushes along the house. It was like having a fall cleanup crew free of charge! When Josh inspected my chimney the day before installation, he said it would need a rebuild within the year. Since I'd taken out a low interest Energy Conservation Loan from Capital for Change, I wanted get the chimney done immediately in order to add the cost of the chimney rebuild to my loan, which would require completing new paperwork and a few days delay in payment to the roof crew. Mike was completely understanding, patient and helpful, getting me the new paperwork I needed for the loan. He quickly lined up a chimney mason and crew, and within 5 days of the roof installation, the chimney was done (today!). I highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing with no reservations! Working with Mike was the best experience a girl (or woman with not roofing knowledge) could ask for. Choose Rhino-Back Roofing! You won't be disappointed!
They provided quality service. They’re a professional group that I would do business with again any day of the week!
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.
Best experience ever! Mike was so thorough. Great product and made sure I understood the process. I couldn’t believe I went to work one morning and came home to a completed job! You would not have known they were there except for the beautiful new roof! Completely cleaned up. Would highly recommend them 100%!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Mike (owner), Josh (supervisor), and Jessica (office) did an amazing job of marketing and follow through. The whole operation took 3 days, day 1 dumpster & materials arrived, day 2 old roof gone/new roof on, day 3 dumpster gone. Josh did an excellent job of supervision and final touch ups and clean up. The crew did an excellent job. A very professional job by everybody from Rhino Back Roofing. I would recommend them to anybody.
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.
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.
Very Good People
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. They go above and beyond to do the highest quality work possible. We cannot say enough good things about Rhino-Back Roofing and we will always recommend their services.
Very professional , and pleasant to work with. Crew came after dumpster delivered, and they worked all day, prepared the house with tarp to cover shrubs, and cleaned up all day after themselves . Very attentive to your needs, and very helpful thru the first interview with Mike, who took the time to show me the whole process, and got me in as soon as possible, as I had a leak. Josh, the supervisor, was in and out all day, and very helpful, too. I have lived in my home 40yrs and this is my 3 roof. Never felt so confident, that this was the best job ever. Thanks Mike.
I selected this company because of the quality and appearance of the materials (Corning). The project leader was great to work with and the worker were very professional and hard working. To top it off the cost was reasonable and competitive with other quotes I received
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.
