One of the great challenges in hiring a roofing contractor is finding one who can handle some of the adjacent siding and trim work too. In many cases, a roof connects to an area of siding that needs to be addressed during the roof replacement process. This can be especially important if you have experienced damage from a storm, hail, or wind.
Lower quality roofing installers may not take the correct approach to handling roofing and adjacent siding connections or tie-ins. This may lead to a greater risk of leaking even around a newly installed roof. Fascia, soffits, eaves, and rakeboards are the pieces around the roof commonly referred to as trim.
If you are dealing with leaks or moisture problems in your home, the roof and siding made need to be repaired, replaced, or serviced in order to remedy the situation. Working with a professional roofing company who can handle siding will give you the best experience.
In addition to function, roofing and siding also provide aesthetic appeal. Consult with a professional roofing company to see color options for your roof and adjacent siding.
With it's multiple functions, from protection to visual appeal, siding and trim are a critical element of any home. Most people understand that siding helps makes a house look great, but few realize the importance of making sure your roof and siding are properly tied in together. A properly installed roof and siding system will give you the best results against wind and rain.

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.

We would highly recommend this Rhino Back crew to everyone
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.

I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing.
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.

No doubt we made the right decision
We highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing! Mike Trouern-Trend and his team were fantastic. We had 3 other contractors look at our roof before choosing Rhino-Back, and we have no doubt we made the right decision! Part of our roof is a low pitch that was added onto the house- the roof installed on this part of the house was designed for a steeper pitch, and we had some leaking in the fall… Mike came over as a courtesy and helped us come up with a solution at that time, which got us through the winter with no issues. This spring, Rhino-back replaced our entire roofing system. Most of the house was shingles- we had a rubber roof installed on the low pitch section. Rhino-Back’s team was quick, courteous, and cleaned up after themselves…. not to mention the new roof looks great! They followed up to make sure the property was spotless and we were satisfied- which it was and we certainly were! Save yourself the headache of trying to find the right roofing contractor and call Rhino-back!

Mike and his crew were professional, thorough, punctual and efficient.
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.

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.

Rhino-Back is one of the best contractors I’ve had the pleasure of working with
Rhinoback is one of the best contractors I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Owner Mike T is very pleasant and professional, and the manufacturer he uses, Owens-Corning, is top-notch. Mike explained everything in detail – roofing materials, the Owens-Corning warranty, and every step of the installation process --- and was the only one of the roofers who bid on the project to actually inspect the attic and crawl spaces to make sure the wood infrastructure was sound. Installation took one day – the crew of seven showed up at 7 am and by 6 pm the roof was finished, all debris was cleaned up, and the house looked terrific. Production manager Josh was on site all day to answer questions, and came back the next day to make sure that every old nail and shingle had been thrown away. You’d think such quality would be prohibitively expensive (and roofing is by nature costly) but Rhinoback’s price was mid-range of all the estimates I received. I highly recommend Rhino-Back!

I cannot say enough good things about 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

Will go back to them for another project soon.
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.

A truly amazing, unexpected experience!
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!

They did a phenomenal job all in one day.
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.

I’m glad we went with Rhino-Back and would absolutely recommend them to friends.
We just had our roof done, and were very pleased with RhinoBack. Mike and his team were great to work with and followed through to make sure we were completely satisfied with the new roof – even after paid in full. They were very responsive and came back a couple of times to make sure they cleaned everything up (had to wait for the snow to melt on the ground). We got several quotes for our roof, but I’m glad we went with RhinoBack and would absolutely recommend them to friends.

Rhino-Back Roofing was professional from day one.
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.

Their entire crew and personnel were very professional and pleasant to work with.
Everything went well. Mike was even patient when we changed a few items a few times. He worked with us the entire time. We felt confident in their ability to meet our expectations and they did. The clean up was also excellent. They even sent someone back after to triple check for remaining nails. Excellent work all around. Their entire crew and personnel were very professional and pleasant to work with.

They know what they're doing!
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.

Had a great experience with Rhino-Back Roofing
Mike and his team did a great job from start to finish. Mike provided a detail overview of what his company does, products used, and warranty's. The project was scheduled in the middle of the winter due to a roof leak. Tim contacted me a few days ahead of the start date to let me know when the dumpster would arrive and when the product would be delivered. Tim and his crew arrived around 8:00 and Tim and I walked around the house and he explained the project process in detail. The project was completed by 3:00 with cleanup. Due to the amount of snow on the ground, they will be sending another cleaning crew out in the spring to do a final clean up of anything that was missed.

"Best experience ever!"
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%!
Barbara N. - Silver Brook Ln., Granby, CT
We had an excellent experience with this company
Can only echo what others have said. Mike really made the sale with an ultra-thorough description of what they do, from the materials and methods to the logistical details and the warranty that all that provides. And at a competitive price, too. The actual crew was great, worked incredibly hard and completed the roof in a single day. We had an excellent experience with this company.

Granby Roofing Project
My Fiance and I live in Granby, CT and had Rhino Back replace our garage and walkway roof recently. It went about as well as it could possibly go. While it was a struggle to get other roofers we contacted to even call us back, Mike and his crew contacted us within a 1/2 hour of our initial inquiry online and he personally came out to look at the job the next day. After we made a deposit and picked out a color the crew was out there in a week or so. We left for work and when we got back we had a new roof!! They left the area cleaner then it was before they got there. And now we have a roof thats good for the next 50 yrs and a no questions asked warranty that transfers to the next owner. We probably could have found someone cheaper and saved a couple hundred bucks, but for what we got and how easy it was, the money was totally worth it. Mike even sent us brownies and a christmas card for crying out loud!!!
