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.

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!!!

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!

"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.

VERY professional company and wonderful to work with.
Just had our Canton CT roof done, and couldn't be happier with the results. VERY professional company and wonderful to work with. Mike and his team were so great to work with , and extremely knowledgable on every aspect of the process. They not only completed the roof on time and in one day , but we're also very thorough with clean up and even offered to come back at some point to clean up any nails that may have landed in the snow ( roof done in December). Great company .
Kristina C. - Hilltop Drive, Canton, CT
Rhino-Back Roofing was the right choice to repair our roof from hail damage. They walked us through the whole process, keeping us up-to-date on the status of our claim. We are thrilled with the results and seeing the teamâ€™s attention to details during the roof replacement gives us confidence that this roof will be leakproof for 50 years.
Robert Kersten - Granby, CT
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.

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!

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.

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.
Michelle M. - Jerome Ave, Bristol, CT
Did a fabulous job, showed up on time, finished on time.
Provided a new roof. Stripped off 2 layers of shingles. Installed 2 new skylights and re-flashed others. Did a fabulous job, showed up on time, finished on time. CLEANED UP!

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.
Trey & Kim S. - Sunset Hill Road, Simsbury, CT
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.

The total roofing experience with Rhino-Back roofing was exceptional.
The total roofing experience with Rhino-Back roofing was exceptional. All aspects of the job, from the beginning first home visit from Mike Trouern-Trend to evaluate the project, to the promptness of communication relating to the quoting of the project as well as the final installation were seamless. Progress reports on start dates, and timing came regularly from Mike, and Rhino-Back was able to come earlier than expected and completed the job in just a day and a half. The crew that did the actual installation was professional, courteous, and prompt. When they left the job after the first day, the yard was clear of debris and the unused materials were neatly stacked in the driveway. After completion of the job extra care was taken to look for stray scraps of shingles or nails that might had fallen through the tarps. I could not be more pleased with the roofing experience that Rhino-Back provided for my home. I recommend this company to anyone who is looking for a new roof or partial roof repair if they enjoy professional service, outstanding quality and reasonable pricing.

From the initial meeting to educate me on roof shingle replacement to the follow up before starting the job, Mike the owner is the consummate professional.
From the initial meeting to educate me on roof shingle replacement to the follow up before starting the job, Mike the owner is the consummate professional. Mike walked me through every detail and didn’t assume I knew or didn’t know anything about my roof. Once his crew showed up, they worked tirelessly throughout the day to complete the job. I have a 2500 sg ft colonial home, so it was realistic to think that if could take two days. Josh the foreman was checking in with me throughout the day, which was a Saturday by the way, to make sure I was happy with everything. Josh showed up the day before to walk me through the process and showed up the Monday after to make sure I was happy with everything. I strongly recommend using these guys, I have had my roof priced from other contractors in the area and in some cases the cost was double.

The experience was outstanding from beginning to end.
The experience was outstanding from beginning to end. The work was done in a single day which was amazing. The cleanup was good and pretty thorough. And the roof looks beautiful. We’d highly recommend Rhino Back Roofing.

I would highly recommend Rhinoback for your next roofing project.
Rhino Back was one of the best contractors that I have worked with in a long time. Mike and Josh were very professional as well as there crew. The job was completed in one day, and they even sent someone back the following day to make sure that the cleanup was done to perfection. I received pricing from 4 other contractors and they fell in the middle. I would highly recommend Rhino Back for your next roofing project. Its was nice to work with a company that cares about there customers.

The crew did an excellent job. A very professional job by everybody from Rhino Back Roofing. I would recommend them to anybody.
