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.

Rhino-Back Roofing was the clear choice.
My wife and I shopped this job the best we could. We requested quotes from four companies for our roof replacement, skylight replacement and chimney repair of which two of the companies were referred by neighbors. Two of the four were not able to quote the chimney repair but the quotes were itemized so we were able to compare apples to apples. The difference between the highest and the lowest was $1,500 on the roof replacement. The shingles offered were Corning and Timberline. We read every review we could find on both and found that Corning had a slight edge because it has a nailing strip. This wasn’t a make or break difference. We had four quotes from well-reviewed and experienced roofing contractors so we based our decision on who we thought would be the most likely to do the best job, expert and clear communication on remedy for existing roof leak and ice damming, the most likely to return to fix a problem, price and value. Rhino-Back Roofing was the clear choice. The job took three days, the roof looks great, the skylights fit perfect and the chimney looks awesome. The service was professional and the cleanup was good.

I got 3 other quotes and immediately knew Rhino-Back was who I would trust.
I recently had my roof replaced and could not be happier. The quote is low pressure and Mike was very honest about budget and quality. It was an easy choice to pick Rhino-Back because they have such a strong reputation and back it up through good communication and honesty. I got 3 other quotes and immediately knew Rhino-Back was who I would trust for such a big investment.

We would highly recommend this Rhino Back crew to everyone
This is the first time I have been involved with hiring a firm for a big project. The roof is large with a high pitch and several sections. I was really nervous. I have to say the Mike (the owner) made this process so easy and it couldn't have been a better experience. Mike arrived promptly for our initial meeting . He presented himself in a professional, yet friendly manner. Our roofing project was described to us in great detail and he took great care in answering each and every one of our questions. Mike's passion for his job was evident. After selecting Rhino Back to do the job, we were pleased to see that the crew (supervised by Josh who was also great to work with) arrived on time each morning. Care was taken to protect our many plants and the clean-up process was very thorough. Our roof, gutters and skylights look great. We would highly recommend this Rhino Back crew to 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.

The best roofers in the area!
Five-star customer service, quality, and timeliness. Tim North, the on-site manager, was present at my home at all times ensuring me that everything was on track. They went above and beyond and I highly recommend them for all your roofing needs.

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!!

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.

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!

Working with Rhino-Back was as painless a process as humanly possible.
Working with Rhinoback was as painless a process as humanly possible. I contacted 4 local companies for quotes; they were the only ones to call me back. Communication was excellent, their quote was honest and fair, they showed up when they said they would, completed the job quickly and cleaned up thoroughly. We have been putting off this project for years, and we are so relieved to have it behind us and to feel so confident in the workmanship. The thank you note and delivery of brownies was a nice touch too :-)

Mike, Josh and the entire crew are awesome!

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

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!!!

The entire process from looking over my roof, the estimate, the setup, scheduling, and the actual roof replacement was handled professionally and expertly.
Recently I had my roof replaced by RHINO-BACK ROOFING. I am more than pleased at the way the roof came out. It is in my estimation a beautiful roof. The entire process from looking over my roof, the estimate, the setup, scheduling, and the actual roof replacement was handled professionally and expertly. Mike Trouern-Trend from Rhino-Back handled the entire job very professionally. He listened to my questions and concerns and handled everything in a courteous and timely manner. I would recommend Rhino-Back Roofing and Mike to anyone needing a roof replacement. In addition to replacing my roof he also replaced my sky-light in my attic. All the work was done to my complete satisfaction.

The project leader was great to work with
I selected this company because of the quality and appearance of the materials (Corning). The project leader was great to work with and the worker were very professional and hard working. To top it off the cost was reasonable and competitive with other quotes I received
Carol G. - Ravenwood Road, West Hartford, CT
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.

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 .

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.

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!

" 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.

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.
