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.

The entire experience has been pleasant
The entire experience has been pleasant. Mike was polite and professional. The job was scheduled just a couple of weeks after the contract was signed and they did show up on time. They completed the job in 1 day and cleaned up the yard afterward. The roof looks refresh and neat and the material looks durable. So far I have not complaints.

Mike and his Team are wonderful
We had a great experience with Rhino Back Roofing from start to finish. Mike and his team are wonderful. Communication was great, install was quick and they did a great job cleaning up.

A very professional job by everybody from Rhino-Back Roofing. I would recommend them to anybody.
Mike (owner), Josh (supervisor), and Jessica (office) did an amazing job of marketing and follow through. The whole operation took 3 days, day 1 dumpster & materials arrived, day 2 old roof gone/new roof on, day 3 dumpster gone. Josh did an excellent job of supervision and final touch ups and clean up. The crew did an excellent job. A very professional job by everybody from Rhino Back Roofing. I would recommend them to anybody.

I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing.
Mike’s team of roofers were very good. They came, removed the old shingles and put the new one on in a day and left my property spotless. I had been having an issue with leaking around the chimney and they took the time after removing the shingles to let me inspect the plywood to understand what was causing the issue (step flashing and disintegrated ice and water shield after 20 years). I had been set to go with another roofer when Mike happened to contact me and ask me if I was interested in getting a quote for a new roof. His price was in line with other estimates, but I really liked working with Mike because he answered all my questions and didn’t mind that I asked lots of question. And if he didn’t have an answer, he got back to me with an answer. He and Josh were also very good at keeping me posted in terms of start date, delivery of dumpster, etc and they were easy to get a hold of. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing.

Rhino-Back is one of the best contractors I’ve had the pleasure of working with
Rhinoback is one of the best contractors I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Owner Mike T is very pleasant and professional, and the manufacturer he uses, Owens-Corning, is top-notch. Mike explained everything in detail – roofing materials, the Owens-Corning warranty, and every step of the installation process --- and was the only one of the roofers who bid on the project to actually inspect the attic and crawl spaces to make sure the wood infrastructure was sound. Installation took one day – the crew of seven showed up at 7 am and by 6 pm the roof was finished, all debris was cleaned up, and the house looked terrific. Production manager Josh was on site all day to answer questions, and came back the next day to make sure that every old nail and shingle had been thrown away. You’d think such quality would be prohibitively expensive (and roofing is by nature costly) but Rhinoback’s price was mid-range of all the estimates I received. I highly recommend Rhino-Back!

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.

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!

Mike, Josh and the entire crew are awesome!
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.

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.

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.

" Skillful and very efficient"
Kudos to the entire Rhino-Back Roofing team. Mike and Melanie did a great job for us. Starting at documenting the hail damage with the insurance company to answering all of our questions through out the whole project. The roofing team was careful of shrubs and property, skillful and very efficient through out the installation of multiple roofs on two structures. Management, staff, and tradesmen and women were consistently courteous and accommodating of our needs. Many thanks to all of you.

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.

Highly recommend the Rhino-Back Roofing. The whole roofing project was completed very quickly.
Mike is a thoughtful, hard-working, ambitious, professional businessman. He gives excellent communication about what to expect, about deliveries and about any interference with the schedule due to weather conditions. He and his 6-man crew are dependable, work fast and leave the work area immaculate when job is completed. Mike is very knowledgeable about materials used and explains everything to the customer. We are more than satisfied with this man’s work. Highly recommend the Rhino-Back Roofing. The whole roofing project was completed very quickly. Excellent overall experience.

Had a great experience with Rhino-Back Roofing
Mike and his team did a great job from start to finish. Mike provided a detail overview of what his company does, products used, and warranty's. The project was scheduled in the middle of the winter due to a roof leak. Tim contacted me a few days ahead of the start date to let me know when the dumpster would arrive and when the product would be delivered. Tim and his crew arrived around 8:00 and Tim and I walked around the house and he explained the project process in detail. The project was completed by 3:00 with cleanup. Due to the amount of snow on the ground, they will be sending another cleaning crew out in the spring to do a final clean up of anything that was missed.

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.

Every aspect of the process went impeccably
Every aspect of the process went impeccably, from my first meeting with Mike to the time that the roof was completed. Mike carefully explained the complete process in full detail and everything went according to plan. His staff is kind and courteous and his team of installers is highly skilled and take great pride in their work. I would highly recommend Rhino-Back Roofing, to family, neighbors and friends. Please consider using them if you are in need of a roof. I assure you that you will be pleased you did.

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.

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.
