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.

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.

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!

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.

Efficient from the time we had our first meeting
Mike was efficient from the time we had our first meeting. He set all expectations and there were no surprises. From project time to dumpster drop off and pick up to clean up . This was a big job and it took 2 days. I was around for most of it and it was a pleasant experience! They all work very hard. Josh was supervising and did not miss a beat. He answered all questions. Marcos and his team were professional , respectful and extremely diligent. Mike runs a great company and treats his employees with respect. Looking forward to easier winters. Thank you for our new roof and skylights!!

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.
The whole experience was amazing!
We had hail damage and the whole experience was amazing from dealing with insurance and keeping me updated to super friendly and knowledgeable staff to professional and courteous installation team. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again or recommend them. I like them so much we're working on getting my siding replaced next! Thanks, Mike, Melanie, and the whole gang!

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.

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!

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 are thrilled with the results and would recommend Rhinoback Roofing to anyone and everyone.
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.

"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.

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!

They were competitive in price in the area, are committed to the community, and the work is top notch
Great communication, very customer focused, competitive pricing and a very experienced crew. Mike is running a stellar company; Josh (the foreman for our house) was extremely personable and spent plenty of time walking me around the day (single - they did our roof in about 7 hours) explaining what was going on. They were competitive in price in the area, are committed to the community, and the work is top notch. We're so happy with the work (and the look of the new roof!), we've recommended them to at least 3 friends. You won't be disappointed.

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.

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!!!

Weatogue Roof Replacement
Mike , Tim and his Team were very professional. The Rhino team left my property very clean especially dealing with snow and the cold weather, all the logistics were very seamless from setting the dumpster delivery to taking old roof off then putting new roof on. I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgable group to help with such a big investment. Thank you Rhino Team for giving our house new life! happy new years and cheers to you, I would recommend you guys to anyone.

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.
