There are many weather events in Springfield 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:

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 found an issue with our roof in October and we called Rhino. We needed to replace our roof. The job was completed quickly and seamlessly. Very professional staff and caring for our roof needs. Thank you!!
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 replaced my roof and all the wood under the shingles. They did a phenomenal job all in one day. They had 8 people working on it. Everything was done exactly when and how it was described. When at the last minute, I asked for a postponement until a day when we wouldn’t be home to hear all the noise, there was no problem. It looks great and the cleanup was perfect.
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.
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.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rhino Back Roofing from start to finish. Mike, Josh and the rest of the team are consummate professionals during every phase of the process. From the initial meeting, to the final cleanup, we experienced a sense of confidence that the job was being done right. The results are spectacular and it looks like a new home! Thank you Rhino Back!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Very professional and friendly. No hard sell or bad mouthing of competitors. Took the time to explain their product, what needed to be done and answer our questions. Generous selection of colors and styles. Worked with OUR schedule, greatly appreciated considering our roof was leaking and causing interior damage. They also went to great lengths not to destroy our flower beds. Meticulous clean up when finished. Appreciated the follow up contact after work was completed. Highly recommend this company. I wish they hung sheetrock and did tree removal.
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.
Mike and his team are awesome…highly recommend! We needed a new roof last year after it was damaged from the terrible winter weather. We had leaking in our kitchen and ice dams all over the roof. We looked at a few companies before deciding to use Mike and his team. Mike seemed like he truly cared and didn’t treat us as just a number. He was very thorough with his estimate, answered all the questions we had, and even helped us provide the necessary info to our insurance company. Their quality of work was excellent and the job was done in two days. Mike even came back a few times to check and make sure everything was as it should be and our rain guard was working properly. Highly recommend them…look no further, Mike’s your guy!
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!
Rhino-Back Roofing is the best! The job came out great and the price was more than fair. From beginning to end, the whole experience was great. Thanks again to Mike, Josh and the whole crew! I would recommend your company to anyone!
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.
Mike and team recently replaced our roof, a number of skylights and added a rubber roof on a low pitch addition. As we went through the quoting process, Mike outlined various options and came up with some creative solutions that were very competitive on pricing. I'm writing this one month later and the completed work is excellent. The actual install took a day and the team was organized, methodical and very respectful of our property. I highly recommend you consider this business for any of the related services they provide.
After the May 2018 hail storm, we contacted Mike and Lisa at Rhino Back Roofing Our experience was excellent with professionalism and communication way above par. The installation crew was fast, friendly and did an amazing job!
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!
