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.

We watched in awe as they worked together like a well oiled machine-We were left with a 1st class roofing installation and couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you everyone at Rhino-back. You are the best in the business.

Excellent Job, Rhino-Back
Excellent! Mike (owner) and his crew (led by on site foreman, Caesar) reported to the job at the appointed time. They answered all my pre work questions and concerns and began work. They proceeded to strip the previous roof and replace the existing skylight in less than a day. I am so impressed with their workmanship and the results. Mike was back several times during the day to check on progress and address any possible complications. Stripping the original materials and dropping them in a designated area resulted in a spotless cleanup of a messy job. They were done in a day and when they left you could not tell that they were there, as my deck (drop area) was spotless. Their work has enhanced the value of my property at a very fair price.

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.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Rhino Back Roofing from start to finish. Mike, Josh and the rest of the team are consummate professionals during every phase of the process. From the initial meeting, to the final cleanup, we experienced a sense of confidence that the job was being done right. The results are spectacular and it looks like a new home! Thank you Rhino Back!

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!

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.

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 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.

I cannot say enough good things about Rhino-Back Roofing
I cannot say enough good things about Rhino-Back Roofing. The level of service and professionalism, paired with the end result, is far beyond anything I could have hoped for with this project. From the very beginning, Mike and his team were available, informative and made us feel part of the family. We just moved into our very first New England home and found we needed a FULL roof replacement. Here are a few points that highlighted the process for me: • Very detailed initial consultation (complete with attic walk-thru). • Convenient and timely scheduling of work (within 2 weeks). • Fair and equitable pricing. • Top of the line products. • Single day full roof replacement and same day clean up. • Amazing end product and follow up that it met our expectations. This final piece is key and speaks to the character of the company and its owner. A few days after completion, I noticed some damage to my back deck. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if this was already there but I called Mike to see what my options were and get his opinion. I didn’t even have to ask and Mike had someone out to take a look within an hour and called me back that night to let me know he was arranging for someone to replace that portion of the deck! To be clear, this was almost certainly a pre-existing issue due to some natural rotting. However, since the issue may have been accelerated by his crew, he wanted to take care of it. Now THAT is how you build a reputation. Thank you, Rhino-Back Roofing. Thank you, Mike. Zack

If you need a new roof, I could not recommend them more strongly.
We just had our roof done by Rhino Back Roofing and I had to give a shout out for them. Professional from the start to the end. High quality initial inspection, great shingle quality, stunning install, great prices, efficient and polite crew, immaculate clean-up and fantastic communication all the way through. If you need a new roof, I could not recommend them more strongly.

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.

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.

It was the quickest, cleanest job I’ve ever seen, and we couldn’t be happier with the way it came out.
Mike & Josh at Rhino-Back were outstanding to work with. We were closing on a home in Simsbury and discovered it needed a new roof. Mike went out to look the very next day to give an assessment – knowing that we were under a tight deadline with our close and with a snow storm on the way. He did an excellent job clearly explaining all of the work he was going to do, and kept in touch every step of the way. Josh was able to start and finish putting our roof on two days after we closed on the house and the day before the snow hit – it was the quickest, cleanest job I’ve ever seen, and we couldn’t be happier with the way it came out. We would definitely recommend Rhino-Back to anyone.
