Church Roof Replacement

I was extremely please with the service I received from Kovar Contracting. Having never dealt with roof replacement project, Jason explained everything very clearly and simply for a layman like me. The project went very smoothly and I was amazed that they completed it in such a short time. I will definitely be recommending this company to any friends or colleagues and I suspect they will be called when it is time to replace the balance of the roof.

Roof on Cottage

Jason explained the cost of the roof on my cottage in detail as well as the products to be used. There was some damage on the sheathing which he sent photos of as well as the repair and explained the additional cost. They also included some additional flashing to protect against the damage re-occurring. I am very satisfied with the work form Kovar

Roof replacement

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

Jason and his team did a great job on replacing our roof this month. Jason is very professional and patient. He gave us excellent advice on the color of roof for replacement. We are very satisfied with his work. We highly recommend Jason and his team.

Roofing

We had a roof replaced by Kovar last month and were very satisfied with the job overall. Jason was very professional and took time to explain the work that would be involved and the products that would be used. The estimate was clear and complete and the work was done within the budget and the timeframe discussed. The work crew were pleasant and diligent. We would be pleased to consider Kovar for future work and to recommend the company to others.

Sun tunnel Skylights

I chose two contractors to give estimates for three Velux sun tunnels - living room, kitchen and hallway. I found Kovar Contracting through Homestars and another contractor was recommended to me. Jason came to look and provided us with a quote the next day. The other contractors came and provided us with a quote that was substantially lower.

Luckily I kept asking questions (many, many questions) which Jason patiently answered to try to find out why the quotes were so different. By the time I finished asking the questions of the other contractor, their quote had risen to close to Jason's. First they didn't quote the tunnels we wanted, then we realized they weren't planning on installing an ice shield, which Velux stated was mandatory.

Obviously we went with Jason as he knew what needed to be done and quoted appropriately right off the bat. The tunnels look awesome, the house was tidy when I came home, Jason even agreed to wait until my next pay for payment.

I will hire them again for our eavestroughs and when our roof needs to be done.

New roof

We hired Kovar Contracting to redo our roof. Jason and his team were amazing; they were professional, friendly and had an incredible work ethic. They got the job done quickly and our new roof looks wonderful. Thanks to HomeStars for helping us find Kovar Contracting. We would highly recommend them.

Shingles and skylight replaced

We recently hired Jason and his team to replace a skylight and shingles on our three storey townhouse. The job was completed quickly and professionally and we are extremely satisfied with the end result. Jason was easy to work with - always accessible and very responsive. He worked very hard to ensure that we were satisfied and any concerns were immediately addressed, above and beyond what we expected. We would definitely recommend this company.

Re-shingling

We recently had Kovar Contracting Inc. complete our roof and were completely happy with the entire experience. This included the quote, the roofing, customer service, referral (for masonry work that was required), and follow up work. We had a complicated situation. We really feel that we received top value for our money spent and have a high confidence (with warranties) that our roof will look and perform great for a long time. During his posted work hours, Jason always answered his phone right away. We have satellite TV, and after the job we needed Bell to come in to point the dish again. The Bell technician let us know that it's very common: he'd been with Bell a long time and every summer he sees a lot of newly completed roofs. He made it a point to mention that he thought our roof was done exceptionally well, and that it was "very clean" and "really tight"....and he would know since he has seen so many roofs over the years. That's the high level story, we highly recommend Kovar Contracting.
