The replacement of soffit/fascia/siding/gutters and guard, on my home.

The work was completed on time and on budget. From the start to Finnish it was a very pleasant experience to deal with such courteous professional who answer all my question in a very timely manner.

My wife and I are very please with the total job done on our home. ALL the workers were very friendly, they feel like old friends after meeting them the first morning at the start of the project.

I highly recommend KOVAR to my friends and family.

Roofing

Complete redo of the shingles of the entire roof. These guys are great, from the initial stage of getting a quote to delivery. I’d give them 10 stars if this system allowed. I highly recommend them, wonderful team, who are very client focused.

Skylight replacement and attic insulation

The guys from Kovar did a professional job in replacing a skylight and insulating the attic. They all were knowledgeable, skilled and hard working. Communication was excellent and all work was completed in a timely fashion. In addition they were open to changing the original design in order to improve the insulation around the skylight. We were very satisfied with the work they did. I would trust this company to do any construction work around my home.

Roof and soffit replacement - storm damage

Jason and his team saved our house - they dropped everything following the Sept. 2018 tornado and made sure our roof was sealed up and secure for my family. They followed up later by replacing our roof, attic insulation, soffit and gutters. They did a fantastic job, were very friendly and willing to problem solve with me as we were navigating the aftermath of the tornado. Would highly recommend the Kovar team! Thank you

Roofing project

Top 6 reasons to hire kovar to redo your tired roof. Jamie. Kyle. Ben. Corbin
Jason and Cory. These guys are superb. Professional. Accurate. On time. Hard working Polite. And fun. Service was completely done to the highest standards. Communication with Jason was stellar and always prompt. Good honest quote. Quality advice. Not the cheapest quote. But the best job. Remember . It's not the quote or the shingle so much as it is the roofer. These guys are 10s in that department. Impeccable installation and cleanup. Choose Kovar you wont be disappointed. And make sure to ask for kyle and Jamie's crew.

Soffit repair

Two panels of soffit blown off by windstorm.
Called several companies on a Thursday looking for quick repair to discourage invasion by raccoons and squirrels. Kovar was only one able to respond by Friday, others were Monday at minimum. Repair was quick and efficient, first thing Friday morning. Price was minimum service charge, and $50 cheaper than quote from another company that I contacted.

Replacement of Fascia

Jason and his team Jamie and Brad responded to my online request in 24 hours. Jamie called and Brad was there in an hour. There were some issues with the fascia fit which was my problem and they came back the next day and got the repair done after adjusting the piece in their shop. It was at the peak of a 3 story home so a bit of a challenge. I could not find another firm in the city to do it. The price was their minimum for a call so although high, was understandable. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend the team at Kovar.

Upstairs and basement renovations

In January 2019 we had Kovar contracting renovate our upstairs. Had our old carpets removed and they installed hardwood floors new doors and trim with new updated baseboards and fresh paint. The upstairs is an amazing transformation with a new stair railing as well!
End of March we had the team come back to renovate our old basement. From head to toe it was redone! It looks like we live in a brand w home now! Kevin, Chuck and Brad are a great team and work hard!
Thanks guys for the amazing job! Looks absolutely stunning!

Attic insulation and bathroom fans upgrade

We had Kovar in for two projects that involved our attic. Prior to the work being done Jason was very responsive to all questions and concerns I had.

They first came in and fixed the way our bathroom fans were venting. They were originally venting into the soffit vent which was causing moister and mold in the attic. Kovar added two exhaust terminations to the roof for our bathrooms as well as replacing the fans with new ones we provided.
The next day Scott and his team came to air seal the attic and top up the insulation.

Overall we’re very happy with the work they did. We no longer have condensation in the bathroom during showers, and the insulation job has left our top level feeling much more comfortable on cold days.
