Flashing is an essential part of the exterior of your home including the roof. What is flashing? Generally speaking it's small pieces of aluminum, lead, or other metal that diverts water away from your home.
On most roofs, flashing exists around penetrations and objects such as chimneys, skylights, pipe vents, and more. Flashing is also used where a sidewall or dormer meets the roof. Although it's hard to see, roof flashing is a critical part of the overall function of your roof.
Broken or damaged roof flashing can cause leaking within your attic or home. In certain cases roof flashing can be replaced without the roofing shingles and in other cases it's necessary to remove and replace the roof system in order to address the flashing.
If you think you might have a roof flashing issue, we're standing by to help.

This is a first class company from top to bottom
Job went smoothly and was fully completed and cleaned with all debris removed in 2 days. Everyone involved, from the owner to the installation techs to the final clean-up tech and waste container people were thoughtful considerate individuals who truly cared about their workmanship. They were respectful at all times and well trained and skilled at their duties. After observing them working on our neighbor's roof, we did not hesitate to call; and, after speaking with Mike, were very excited to contract with him. This is a first class company from top to bottom.

Never felt so confident, that this was the best job ever.
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.

If you need a new roof, I could not recommend them more strongly.
We just had our roof done by Rhino Back Roofing and I had to give a shout out for them. Professional from the start to the end. High quality initial inspection, great shingle quality, stunning install, great prices, efficient and polite crew, immaculate clean-up and fantastic communication all the way through. If you need a new roof, I could not recommend them more strongly.

Rhino-Back Roofing was fantastic from start to finish.
Rhino-Back Roofing was fantastic from start to finish. They spent a lot of time evaluating the job, answering questions, explaining the process and the products they would use. They provided a very detailed estimate. They were able to schedule the job very quickly since it was estimated at a 1/2-day project. They gave us feedback on everything we would need to do to prep for the project – acquiring a dumpster, clearing some trees – and then gave us updates as materials were delivered, followed by check-ins to ensure the materials were correct. The crew is fantastic – very respectful and friendly. They work quickly and efficiently – clearly have been a team for a while. They needed to do some extra repair work once the old roof was removed, and quickly got the materials they needed and made the repairs. Due to that, they thought they might need extra time, but they were still able to finish by the end of the day. Their clean-up was phenomenal – they checked all around the premises for pieces of roofing, nails, etc. They came by to do a walk-around to check on the work. The quality of the roofing materials is fantastic – wish that our whole house had these products! They stayed in touch regarding the warranty papers and even sent a beautiful thank you gift. We would highly recommend Mike Trouern-Trend and Rhino-Back Roofing!

Great communication, pricing and quality work
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Great communication, pricing and quality work. Durning the project was kept updated. Crew was respectful, did excellent work, and cleaned up after themselves. Minimal disruption to our day. Professional and honest! Great experience and beautiful end results.
Chris & Lou H. - Spoonville Road, East Granby, CT
We are extremely pleased with our new roof by Rhinoback Roofing.
Out of all of the companies that bid on our roof replacement, Mike was the only one who took the time to explain every detail of the project, including his findings from inspecting our attic and covered porch areas. He thoroughly reviewed with us the superior quality of his product (Owens Corning) vs the shingles and underlayment used by other companies. Our own research confirmed what Mike had shared. The crew was fantastic - thorough, clean, polite, and fast! They completed our large project in a single day. We are thrilled with the results and would recommend Rhinoback Roofing to anyone and everyone. Mike and his team definitely go 'above and beyond' to ensure a high-quality result.

I would recommend Rhino-Back to my neighbors
Everything was completed as promised, crew arrived bright and early, entire job finished in one day, no surprises or extra costs, and looks great! Mike was very professional, explained everything thoroughly and was helpful in deciding the best options for the job. Josh and the 7-man crew were great, hard-working, cleaned up everything when finished. I would recommend Rhino-Back to my neighbors.
Jeff C. - Valley View Drive, Simsbury, CT
Excellent! The company was very responsive and the workers were neat, competent and professional.
Susam S. - Lake Street, Burlington, CT
Professional and highly competent from start to finish!
During the quoting stage, I was presented with options and given clear explanations on the pros and cons of each. They went beyond what anyone else did and made recommendations that others overlooked, but made perfect sense to do. The work was completed as scheduled and clean up was thorough. Even after the job was done and paid for, Mike made a point of following up to see if I had any questions or problems. Total professionals! I would recommend them highly to anyone needing roofing work done.

"Truly EXCEPTIONAL customer service..."
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.

They worked quickly and efficiently. The work was done when Michael told us they’d be done, and they even CLEANED UP after themselves.
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 work was done and they all wanted to know who did the work!
Christopher & Jami L. - Canton Road, Simsbury, CT
The results are spectacular and it looks like a new home!
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!

Excellent Job, Rhino-Back
Excellent! Mike (owner) and his crew (led by on site foreman, Caesar) reported to the job at the appointed time. They answered all my pre work questions and concerns and began work. They proceeded to strip the previous roof and replace the existing skylight in less than a day. I am so impressed with their workmanship and the results. Mike was back several times during the day to check on progress and address any possible complications. Stripping the original materials and dropping them in a designated area resulted in a spotless cleanup of a messy job. They were done in a day and when they left you could not tell that they were there, as my deck (drop area) was spotless. Their work has enhanced the value of my property at a very fair price.

I would recommend them to anyone who wants the best roofing products installed by a professional, accountable contractor.
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.
Charlie P. - Surry Circle, Simsbury, CT
Knowledgeable and pleasant to work with.
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.
Sandra G. - Paul Spring Road, Farmington, CT
Every aspect of the process went impeccably
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.

Never have I had a company so concerned for customers and their home.
We recently had the best experience ever with Rhino-Back Roofing! Who ever thought putting a roof on your house and spending tons of $$$ would be great??? We DO. Never have I had a company so concerned for customers and their home. The Rhino-Back guys were professional and courteous and so detail oriented. I did get a few estimates for our job and Rhino-Back fell in the middle, but from a customer service perspective it was above and beyond and worth so much more! Mike came out and spent over 45 minutes explaining the entire project and costs, Josh called the day before and discussed all the details, the job was completed in one day, and the follow-up and cleanup were perfect. We had some snafus in scheduling, dumpster removal, etc but every step of the way, the guys were in constant communication and calls were answered immediately and Josh even came over within 15 minutes to answer some questions. I highly, highly recommend this company as their level of quality and customer service is above and beyond the norm. Thanks Rhino-Back, we’ll recommend you always!

I felt like I was making an informed decision
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
