Skylight replacement (x2) and bath fan upgrades

I contacted Kovar about 2 skylights on my property that were beginning to show their age - 1 was leaking and the other was causing the formation of a huge ice dam around it. Jason took his time to answer my questions and provided me promptly with a quote for the work. He was readily available to discuss other questions and explained the details thoroughly. We opted to get Snow Load skylights to help limit the heat transfer through the glass itself. Kevin and Chuck completed the work over the course of 2 days, and were clean and respectful. The one negative I would state is that a check of the product (one of the 2 skylights) about to be installed on my house was not completed - in fact, the supplier had provided them with the incorrect skylight (less energy efficient), and had I not checked myself, it would have been installed despite it being the wrong one. I understand this is something the supplier did wrong (and not Kovar) but it would have been nice if they had checked as well. Overall, happy with the results and hoping that the new skylights (plus improved attic/tunnel insulation completed by a separate contractor) will help reduce the ice dam formation. Thanks Jason, Kevin, and Chuck!

roof that was leaking in one area (below bay window)

I requested the free estimate and maybe 2 days later I was contacted to arrange visit. within 2 days I received estimate by email. I accepted the work order and waited 3 weeks but it was small job all the way in Orleans so I understand why it took so long. The day before work schedule I got txt confirmation about the job.
Kyle did came first thing in the morning like 7:30am. He was very professional and quick.
He explained what he will do and told me I don’t have to be home for him to work. After he was done he txt me pictures of job done. I received email with payment option 3 days later.
Honestly very good experience with this company. I hope the roof will not leak anymore :)

Roofing

I hired Kovar to redo my roof this month upon recommendation from a family member who had used them in the past, and I would recommend them to anyone! I had a lot of questions about the job beforehand and the owner responded to all my emails right away, and was very thorough in explaining what was to be done. The people who completed the job were very friendly and did a wonderful job!

Roof replacment and dormer repair

Very happy with Kovar. Jason and his team do excellent work, have good communication, and a reliable timeframe. Each day they left the worksite very clean. This is my second roof with them (two different houses).

Drip edge to fix ice dam

Had a problem with a leaky eavestrough and ice dam in our roof. Kovar provided a solution to repair the roof. Very easy dealing with Jason. Team was efficient and kept premises cleared of debris. Highly recommend.

Repair roof and chimney work

The previous roofing company made some serious errors and Kovar was able to determine the issues, recommend some options and do the necessary repairs. Kovar were very professional and provided quick assessments with the work being completed very timely. They did not pressure us to make any decisions until we were comfortable. We would highly recommend them.
