There are several reasons why properly installed roof ventilation is critical to roof performance. An effective Roof Ventilation System lowers heat build-up in the summer and may also reduce the risk of ice dams in the winter.
Heat build up under the roof in the summer may cause premature deterioration of your roof shingles.
Warm air rising from your home that cannot vent property may lead to melting and freezing on your roof, which leads to ice dams.
Some signs that show you may not be getting enough air ventilation are listed here:
- Temperatures exceeding 110 or 120 degrees in the attic space would be considered excessive heat. There may be steps to lower this temperature.
- Frost or ice on the plywood sheathing, rafters or nails shows that warm air is getting cold and freezing.
- Mold growth indicates changing temperatures which condenses air.
- Water dripping from the exposed nail tips is not necessarily due to a roof leak.
Take a look in your attic. Do any of these things apply? It's quite possible there are steps we can help you take to improve your ventilation issue. Starting with a roof and attic evaluation we can very likely make some suggestions to help preserve your roof and home with better roof ventilation.

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!

Their attention to detail made them a step above any other roofing company
We had a wonderful experience with Rhino-Back Roofing. Mike, Tim and their team were amazing to work with. Their attention to detail made them a step above any other roofing company. We are very happy with the finished product of our roof and skylight . They left our yard and the work area spotless after the work was finished. We will definitely be using them again for future roofing needs and would highly recommend them for your roofing needs as well! Thank you again Mike 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!

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!

"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%!

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.

If you’re looking for excellent customer service and a quality roof, we would enthusiastically recommend Rhino-Back Roofing.
Our experience with Rhino Back Roofing almost seemed too good to be true. That feeling prevailed from the point when Mike arrived (right on time) for our estimate to the final walk-around inspection with the project manager, Josh, to assure that we were completely satisfied with our new roof installation. Mike spent far more time with us during the estimate than any other contractor. After doing a thorough inspection and measurement of our roof edges, roof surfaces, perimeter trim, and fascia boards he sat down with us and went through what materials would be used and why and walked us through the old roof removal, repair measures, and new roof installation. He answered our questions in a professional and knowledgeable manner then stepped out to his car to work up our estimate. Several minutes later he knocked on the door and handed us a printed and very detailed estimate that was competitive with other estimates we had received. Everything happened when and how it was promised. The installation crew was amazing. They were efficient and hard working. The on-site carpenter replaced all the rotted fascia, soffits, and trim while the crew installed the full perimeter drip edge and underlayment materials exactly as specified. The roof area around the chimney was waterproofed, the chimney was re-leaded and then the new roof shingles were installed. During the entire process, the crew was all business; each member seemed to know exactly where he needed to be and what to do, so things moved very quickly. Clean up was thorough. The driveway and lawn were swept and raked until there was no debris visible. Finally, a magnetic roller was run up and down the driveway and all around the house multiple times to pick up any roofing nails that might be left on the ground. We are very pleased with our new roof! Having watched the entire installation process, we can say that everything we asked for was done perfectly and every part of the roof system was installed with meticulous care. If you’re looking for excellent customer service and a quality roof, we would enthusiastically recommend Rhino Back Roofing.

I have never been so well treated by any company in my lifetime.
The people at Rhino-Back Roofing are the most professional and courteous I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. They sincerely care about their customers and want you to be happy and satisfied and will do whatever is necessary to ensure that. I had dealings with several personnel at Rhino-Back over the course of the roof replacement on my home and all were easy to talk to and helpful. I would highly recommend them for any roofing needs.
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.

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.

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.

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.
Raymond W. - Saddle Ridge Drive, Simsbury, 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.

Their professionalism, kindness, and thoroughness made the whole experience pleasant and hassle-free.
Rhino-Back Roofing came highly recommended to us when we had some leaking issues on our porch. I am happy to say that their professionalism, kindness, and thoroughness made the whole experience pleasant and hassle-free. Mike is extremely prompt and responsive, answering all questions and explaining everything in great detail. He is very knowledgeable and helped me, someone who knows nothing at all about home repairs, understand the ins and outs of a roof replacement. I was very confident after our first meeting. The actual job went great with updates and explanations along the way from Josh. Our yard was cleaned exceptionally well and now we are enjoying our beautiful new roof! Thank you so much!

They worked quickly and efficiently. The work was done when Michael told us they’d be done, and they even CLEANED UP after themselves.
Michael advised us what was going to happen and when. His team arrived when they said they would. They worked quickly and efficiently. The work was done when Michael told us they’d be done, and they even CLEANED UP after themselves. My wife was enthusiastic about that last part. So much that she noted that she wised I’d clean up after myself the way Rhino-Back Roofing does. And best of all, our roof looks AMAZING. I’ve got three compliments from friends since the Canton CT Roofing job was done and they all wanted to know who did the work!
Christopher & Jami L. - Canton Road, Simsbury, CT
Very happy with my Roof!
Professional, On time, and great quality. Not your ordinary roofer. They strive to make you feel like family. No up-selling just straight what you want at the best quality of products.
Heli Patel - Burlington, 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.
Troy Chicoine - Granby, CT
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.
