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.

Rhino-Back Roofing was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish
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.

I have never had a better experience than we had dealing with Rhinoback
have been a homeowner for 35 years, and in that time I have hired many different contractors for many different jobs. In all seriousness, we have never had a better experience than we had dealing with Rhino-back roofing. This company is exceptional in terms of service, professionalism, promptness- any measure you want to use. Mike thoroughly explained the work they would do, the materials they would use, and the process in a no pressure at all quote. Josh and his crew had to reschedule due to heavy rain in the forecast twice-and each time called well ahead and scheduled a prompt (i.e. just a few days later) new date. They arrived promptly, worked great and the clean-up was terrific. Looking at the ground you would never know they were here- but one look at the roof and you could tell- it looks great! I teach at UConn and my students will tell you that they get only the grade they earn. Rhino-back earns an A+. I highly recommend them!

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.

This is a 5-star outfit
was extremely pleased with Rhino-Back roofing owner Mike's attention to detail and completeness when explaining the roofing system, products, cost estimate and warranty. During the follow-up to the estimate, when we discussed some changes, Mike was prompt and very responsive via email and phone to resolve any issues. The Rhino-Back crew stripped all shingles, removed and replaced about 25 sheets of damaged or moldy plywood, replaced 2 skylights, and re-shingled the roof, all in only 1 day. The clean-up was thorough, and there was even a second clean-up person that came the following day to get any small debris that was missed by the roofing crew. This is a 5-star outfit, in my view, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone with a roofing issue.

I was very pleased and amazed with the whole experience. Mike and team went above and beyond my expectations. Job was done on time and quality and took the time to assure all my questions and concerns were answered. Aside from being knowledgeable in roofing they demonstrated superior customer service (even interested in my feedback for improvement). I recommend them without hesitation to anyone needing roofing service. Thanks again for a great experience and wish Rhino-Back Roofing much success in the future.

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!

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.

I highly recommend rhino back roofing and I am very happy with the results.
Have a roof stripped and reshingled is an extremely stressful experience, both mentally and financially but, I was impressed with the quality, timeliness, and professionalism of Mike, Tim, and the other guys showed before, during, and after my roof project. Rhino Back (Mike) was the ONLY company who checked up in my attic for circulation; all the others were going to give me venting I didnâ€™t need. Tim walked me through the process and kept me informed every step of the way. I had several ex and current builders watching the project and was told the workmanship was top notch; especially in regards to the chimney flashing and vapor barriers. When the job was completed, the guys made sure every nail was picked up. They even sent someone the following day to clean up after dumpster removal and do one more trip around the yard for anything that might have been missed.
Highly recommend this company
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.

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.

Affordable and GREAT to work with.
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.

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.

The customer service was amazing! Thank you!
Iâ€™m so glad to be a part of SMU. After a handful of roofing contractors fell through I came to you for guidance then Rhino Back Roofing came to my rescue. The next day after contacting them, they came out to access my situation and offered great advice! Not to mention the customer service was amazing! Thank you!

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!

Everything was perfect and done exactly as I was told
Everything went great from start to finish. Mike presented a professional explanation of what they would do and what materials they would use. The contract was written specifically showing exactly what Mike had indicated. When the time came for our roof to be done Josh and his crew showed up on time, I was walked around our house and told how they were going to protect the siding and landscaping. The work was completed the same day including cleanup. Everything was perfect and done exactly as I was told. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back roofing.

Mike, Josh and the entire crew are awesome! They are friendly, prompt, caring and professional. Everything from our initial meeting with Mike to the cleanup after the job was finished was wonderful. They go above and beyond to do the highest quality work possible. We cannot say enough good things about Rhino-Back Roofing and we will always recommend their services.

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.
