Attic Insulation & Sealing

We used Kovar Contracting for the second time on our house and again were very pleased with their work and service. After a windstorm induced leak in our roof we asked Kovar to come over to inspect things inside after the outside was repaired. That inspection generated a discussion with Scott about attic insulation and revealed the fact that Enbridge was offering a rebate. Scott offered to provide us a quote and help us with the Enbridge paperwork if necessary. We contacted several other companies for a quote for the insulation work and picked Kovar due to competitive pricing and known quality workmanship. On the day, Scott and the team pitched up on time and completed the work, sealing up gaps that ceiling and bathroom fan installers had left, installing or adjusting baffle vents, and plusing up the attic insulation to a full R60. They were professional, efficient, and cleaned up after the work was finished. We highly recommend Kovar.

Attic insulation done right

Asked a few different companies regarding attic insulation. All companies offered the different options (top-up, remove and replace,...) Scott really took the time to understand what my insulation needs were, and made a few suggestions. Price was slightly below other quotes I had received - and it included a few extras I needed to be done at the time such as running new vents through the attic to the roof. They kept the site clean while doing the job and they were able to do it within the agreed upon time window. The crew did a good job and I highly recommend Scott and his team at Kovar to get it done right.

Soffite repair

Some racoons had damaged a section of the soffite on the roof. The guy who came managed to fix it in barely an hour. I jad another company do an estimate before calling Kovar Contracting and they we asking for almost twice what I ended up paying. I am very satisfied with the service they provided.

Soffit and fascia

We recently had our old wood soffit and fascia coveted with new maintenance free aluminum. It has provided a really nice face-lift to an old 1930s home. It looks better then I could have imagined and no more painting! Alex and his partner were super professional and easy to get along with. A couple of days of work with no messing around. We had a really good experience and I would highly recommend Kovar.

Skylight Install

Based on reviews on HomeStars I had Kovar Contracting provide a quote to replace a leaky skylight. From the initial contact with the office to the quick proposal/quotation and the installation, fantastic job!
Skylights can be problematic if not installed correctly; my last one had to be repaired a few times after the initial install and I didn't wish to go thru that again.
I would highly recommend Kovar.

New roof, new gutter, insulation

I heard about Kovar Contracting from a colleague who had nothing but great things to say about the new roof done by Kovar. I certainly agree with this colleague. Work done in a timely manner, great workmanship and a fair price. I would definitely recommend Kovar Contracting.

New bed and bath construction

Ben took ownership of the project from day one. We felt that he treated our house as if it was his own and did and extra clean up when one of his subcontractors left the site in a condition that Ben was not comfortable with.

Ben showed ingenuity and stick-to-itiveness on more than one occasion. Milling the height of the new baseboards to match the height of the previously installed baseboards resulted in us not being able to see where the original room ended and the new one began.

We were very pleased with every one of the other trades people who worked on our project. They were courteous, efficient and from all results very skilled.

Jason’s willingness to be directly involved when we asked for an onsite visit prior to construction was very much appreciated as were the communications we had with Kimberly regarding re-scheduling due to Covid.

My wife and I would like to thank you, the Kovar Team and especially Ben for making this project the success that it was.
