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.

Best Experience I've ever had with a contractor.
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.

The best roofers in the area!
Five-star customer service, quality, and timeliness. Tim North, the on-site manager, was present at my home at all times ensuring me that everything was on track. They went above and beyond and I highly recommend them for all your roofing needs.

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!

A very professional job by everybody from Rhino-Back Roofing. I would recommend them to anybody.
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.

The entire experience has been pleasant
The entire experience has been pleasant. Mike was polite and professional. The job was scheduled just a couple of weeks after the contract was signed and they did show up on time. They completed the job in 1 day and cleaned up the yard afterward. The roof looks refresh and neat and the material looks durable. So far I have not complaints.

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!!!

They did the preliminary checkup in a much more thorough manner than any other company.
They did a great job. They deserve to have good feedback. I was satisfied that they knew about the problems with my roof. They did the preliminary checkup in a much more thorough manner than any other company. Rhino came in and told me up front what the problems were and what they could do. My house was built in 1938, but they were able to assess it very quickly and correctly. I would like to recognize Mike, the installer, and Josh, the foreman. They are both very open, straightforward, and did a good job. I don’t normally do these things, did such a good job that I wanted to make sure they got my positive feedback.

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.

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.

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.

Couldn't have gone better
Well done, done quickly, and at a fair price. Thoroughly cleaned up after themselves. Good communication and friendly service. Couldn't have gone better.

Their quality of work was excellent and the job was done in two days
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!
