Skylight repair and roof shingling

Small seal replaced and shingles in area replaced. Jason was fast to respond and Jamie who did the work did an excellent job.
I would recommend Kovar for their knowledge and repair capabilities.

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!

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.

Roof re-shingling

Jason was very clear as to how the process would enfold (shingle delivery; tentative start date (pending the weather); the process should we wish to finance the project and we found that Jason was accessible when / if we needed additional information. The work crew were very pleasant, polite and completed the job in just ONE day. I would recommend KOVAR CONTRACTING to anyone interested.

skylight renovation

I had a very old large plexiglass skylight on a high steep roof that was leaking and could not be fixed. Kovar took it out, re-roofed most of it and put in a more moderate size regular skylight. My tenant was very happy with the construction crew - minimal disturbance (1 bad day then finishing stuff). Now no leaks and looks great. Very easy to talk over alternatives, and stuck to time lines.

New roof

The roof was completed in a timely manner with any and all questions pleasantly addressed. The team leader, Jamie, was professional, courteous and accommodating. This is the second time that I have dealt with Jason Kovar of Kovar Contracting and an additional new job has just been arranged. A great local business with strong business ethics!

The replacement of soffit/fascia/siding/gutters and guard, on my home.

The work was completed on time and on budget. From the start to Finnish it was a very pleasant experience to deal with such courteous professional who answer all my question in a very timely manner.

My wife and I are very please with the total job done on our home. ALL the workers were very friendly, they feel like old friends after meeting them the first morning at the start of the project.

I highly recommend KOVAR to my friends and family.

Skylight replacement and attic insulation

The guys from Kovar did a professional job in replacing a skylight and insulating the attic. They all were knowledgeable, skilled and hard working. Communication was excellent and all work was completed in a timely fashion. In addition they were open to changing the original design in order to improve the insulation around the skylight. We were very satisfied with the work they did. I would trust this company to do any construction work around my home.
