Insulation upgrade and air sealing

We decided to participate in the government home upgrade rebate program and contacted Kovar for a quote additional insulation and air sealing in our attic. Kovar was very responsive and we had a visit scheduled within an hour of reaching out. The quote provided was reasonable and they were able to do the job within a few weeks.

Once completed, a secondary energy assessment from an independent company confirmed the job had been completed very well and the blower door test confirmed the air sealing completed had indeed greatly reduced air infiltration. The upstairs feels less drafty and the furnace runs less often and overall were more comfortable.

I would not hesitate to work Kovar again.

House was sided and product and service was above excellent.

Our house was in dire need of new siding. Kovar did the siding and made an ugly house into something I am very proud of now.

Attic insulation upgrade

During the initial quote the contractor was very professional and took the time to explain what was needed and why. On installation day the team was on time, worked quickly, were friendly and cleaned up after themselves. I recommend going with Kovar contracting.

Don't look elsewhere - Kovar is my go-to!!

We hired Kovar to replace our skylights a few years ago, in the middle of winter, and they did an excellent job. Jason's professionalism and prompt responses had me very impressed and comfortable in their hands. Three years later we were faced with replacing gutters, repairing our roof and re-insulating and fixing our attic. Kovar again have showed consistent professionalism, responsiveness, high quality work and personal attention to our projects at fair market costs. Everyone who has been at the house has proven to be an expert in their respective trades. Don't look elsewhere, call them!

Insulation and CT-6 Addition to the Roof

This was my first time doing anything for insulation and I could not have found an amazing and a professional company for the job! Kim was extremely responsive, professional and cordial to all my emails and she explained everything very thoroughly. She made sure get me set up for Enbridge rebate, which was very seamless. Kim if you are reading this, thank you so much for all your help!!! Scott and his team took care of the insulation, with Dave coming to do the assessment first. Again professionalism is the theme here as they were very punctual, professional and competent. Scott made sure to explain everything to me, adjust the work as needed since I wanted to add 2nd CT-6 after they showed up (which he made sure was done without any issue) and cleaned up all the stuff afterward. Kyle did the CT-6 install on the roof and gave me his assessment on the roof along with cleaning up everything afterward. Jason, the owner, always responded back very promptly to all financial related questions with professionalism. Everyone was extremely competent and efficient in what they do. Thank you everyone again for the work! I will recommend Kovar Contracting to anyone without a second thought!
