There are many weather events 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:
- Secure Decking or Sheathing - The wood layer underneath your roof's shingles is critical to wind resistance. This layer is often made of plywood, or ledgerboard. Hire a professional roofer to ensure your roof sheathing is wind resistant.
- Roofing Materials - Even regions that don't often experience high winds may experience wind events. Choose roof materials based on their resistance to wind damage.
- In additon to wind damage to shingles, other elements could be effected. Ridge vents, flashing, and penetrations. All these roof elements need to be appropriately secured to resist wind damage.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

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!

Fairly priced, knowledgeable, and willing to answer any and all questions.
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.

I am a big fan of this family owned business.
I am a big fan of this family owned business. We just had our roof done by them. They were easy to work with, competitively priced and superior in their workmanship in every way. They were fast, clean, trustworthy and skilled. Can’t say enough what a great job they did. They showed up when they said they would. We had no headaches, no complaints.

Rhino-Back did a great job and I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a roof replacement or any type of roof work!
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!

They were great. Came on time, finished quickly – earlier than expected. Very professional. Great owners and staff.
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.

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.

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!!!

Love, love, love my new roof.
Love, love, love my new roof. An investment like this can be rather daunting but Rhino Back Roofing made it to easy. Out of the 5 contractors I reached out to, Mike spent the most time with us. He explained everything in detail, what he recommends, why he uses the products he does and answered all our questions. He is very knowledgeable and you can tell very passionate about his business. The team came and finished the roof in 1.5 days. They worked very hard, were very polite and did a good job cleaning up. The project manager Josh was onsite during the entire job and made sure everything was being done correctly and to answer any of our questions. The tiles we picked out look great on the house: Sedona Canyon. Its hard to tell from looking at a small sample. Mike worked with us, showed us multiple colors and also felt it Sedona Canyon would look good. Highly recommend Rhino Back Roofing. Thank you Mike, Josh and team!

The work was done on the exact timeline that was promised. The cleanup was impressive. The job looks great.
This is a family owned business. Owners Mike and Lisa are both very involved in the business and live locally. Mike is a professional who is customer focused. My roof was leaking leading up to the job and I realized that an incoming storm was going to cause problems. I left Mike a voicemail around 8pm and the next morning at 8am he had his site supervisor at my house to put a temporary tarp on. Made all the difference and was a great way to start a relationship with a customer. In every way, my interactions with Mike were top notch. His crew does operate independently meaning Mike is not on-site when the work gets done. The one and only item that came up was during the installation of the plywood overlay. The crew missed a board of wood that had begun to rot from the inside. Once I pointed it out they ripped up the plywood and replaced the piece at their own cost. Still, I didn't like having to get involved especially around an area that was discussed heavily during the sales process. However, they made it right immediately when I brought it to their attention and this was the only item that came up. Overall.... The work was done on the exact timeline that was promised. The cleanup was impressive. The job looks great. Time will tell with regard to the work product but during yesterday's downpour everything stayed dry. If my mother needed her roof done tomorrow, I'd hire these guys. You could go cheaper but you'd probably pay for it in the long run. Good value. Thanks Mike!

The entire process from looking over my roof, the estimate, the setup, scheduling, and the actual roof replacement was handled professionally and expertly.
Recently I had my roof replaced by RHINO-BACK ROOFING. I am more than pleased at the way the roof came out. It is in my estimation a beautiful roof. The entire process from looking over my roof, the estimate, the setup, scheduling, and the actual roof replacement was handled professionally and expertly. Mike Trouern-Trend from Rhino-Back handled the entire job very professionally. He listened to my questions and concerns and handled everything in a courteous and timely manner. I would recommend Rhino-Back Roofing and Mike to anyone needing a roof replacement. In addition to replacing my roof he also replaced my sky-light in my attic. All the work was done to my complete satisfaction.
Bob R. - Davey Street, Simsbury, 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.

Fantastic service, competitive pricing.
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!
