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.

Roofing ventilation

Attic ventilation installation was recommended and service was excellent with quick turnaround. Reasonable rates for work completed. I would hire again if needed.

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.

Eavestrough

They were timely and responsive. It’s nice they have an administrative person as well as installers. They were upfront about potential delays from Covid-19. Thankfully, they got the work done sooner than expected! Instead of October they worked it into mid-July. They matched the colour of my siding, the runs are clean, the downspouts are trim and secure — thank you!

Top notch

Efficient and clean work. Kevin and Alex were on point and did a great job. Found them on BBB and wasn’t disappointed. Old school good work.

Finishing all the work on the roof!

Another great job completed by Kovar Contracting! This time they did the gutters and downspouts. That was the last step in redoing the roof and installing new sky lights. All done perfectly, on time, orderly, and politely.

Reinsulation after raccoon family visit. Plus topping up.

Visited by raccoon family of four. Difficult to get them out. Much urine soaked insulation, batten and soffit damage.

Kovar was thorough in preliminary checking. Not the lowest quote but had confidence they would do a good job. Important. Not likely I would do a lot of personal attic checking.
Not disappointed. They did a good job and emailed “after” photos. Good people to work with. Used good materials. Scott was careful and thorough.
