Replacement of Fascia

Jason and his team Jamie and Brad responded to my online request in 24 hours. Jamie called and Brad was there in an hour. There were some issues with the fascia fit which was my problem and they came back the next day and got the repair done after adjusting the piece in their shop. It was at the peak of a 3 story home so a bit of a challenge. I could not find another firm in the city to do it. The price was their minimum for a call so although high, was understandable. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend the team at Kovar.

Upstairs and basement renovations

In January 2019 we had Kovar contracting renovate our upstairs. Had our old carpets removed and they installed hardwood floors new doors and trim with new updated baseboards and fresh paint. The upstairs is an amazing transformation with a new stair railing as well!
End of March we had the team come back to renovate our old basement. From head to toe it was redone! It looks like we live in a brand w home now! Kevin, Chuck and Brad are a great team and work hard!
Thanks guys for the amazing job! Looks absolutely stunning!

Attic insulation and bathroom fans upgrade

We had Kovar in for two projects that involved our attic. Prior to the work being done Jason was very responsive to all questions and concerns I had.

They first came in and fixed the way our bathroom fans were venting. They were originally venting into the soffit vent which was causing moister and mold in the attic. Kovar added two exhaust terminations to the roof for our bathrooms as well as replacing the fans with new ones we provided.
The next day Scott and his team came to air seal the attic and top up the insulation.

Overall we’re very happy with the work they did. We no longer have condensation in the bathroom during showers, and the insulation job has left our top level feeling much more comfortable on cold days.

Prompt and excellent service.

I required a siding repair from storm damage. I contacted Kovar via their website and someone was in touch with the very next day to tell me about their service and to set up an assessment appointment. The assessment was complete the next day and work was complete within the week. Service from Jason and Alex was alway prompt and courteous. I have already recommended this company to friends and will most certainly call them first next time I need a home repair.

Eavestrough and fascia repair and replacement

We recently required some unexpected repair and replacement work done for our eavestroughs and fascia. Alex from Kovar Contracting came out the day after I called them to give us a quote and had the work done before a couple of companies even returned my call. He went beyond our expectations providing excellent work. He was friendly, helpful and very pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend him. They also came up the least expensive of the 3 quotes provided to us by other companies. Thank you!

Insulation/Siding/Eaves/decking

We contracted Kovar Contracting Inc. to reclad our home in vinyl siding after appropriate repairs to the exterior walls and installing 0.75” insulation, as well as redo all of the eaves – in essence, to ensure the envelope of the house for the next 20 years (windows were replaced earlier this year).

He also replaced our 25-year old wood deck with Azek decking materials and shingled the roof.

We are thrilled with the house’s ‘facelift’.

We are extremely confident that the exterior of the house is now secure and enjoy our new backyard surrounds immensely. Jason took the time to walk us through our choices of siding & shingle colour sand made valuable observations in guiding us in our final choice.

Jason’s siding/eaves contractor, Alex, did most of the work by himself. It was reassuring knowing that all aspects of the job were literally overseen by him personally. Alex ordered materials beyond the scope of the job to ensure that there would be no surprises to delay the completion of the project.

Both Alex and Ben (carpenter) impressed us with their meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Alex always gave us sound advice re: which trims would look best, how to deal with difficult drainage etc. He always arrived early and left late; he seemed to work non-stop.

We unequivocally recommend Kovar Contracting.

Basement pantry and walls

Back for more! We decided to give the Kovar crew another try following the great work they did on our gutters/soffit/fascia back in 2016. This time we trusted them with finishing a 400sqft space in the basement --- framing, insulating, drywalling and painting the concrete walls plus creating a 12'x 6' pantry with a drop ceiling. Once again the quoting process was straight forward --- no fluff, no gold plating or pushing for services we didn't need or ask. Getting the job started took some time as they had a few jobs on the go; plus they juggle a few at a time. Communication was a bit tricky a times but otherwise a great experience -- on time and budget. These guys are very easy going and honest. Job site cleaned every night. Thanks Jason, Kevin and Chuck!

Difficult skylight and roof job

Kovar took on a difficult job that several contractors turned down replacing skylights on a Decra metal roof. These guys gave me a reasonable quote and did what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it. Hard working guys in difficult conditions. I have no hesitation recommending Kovar.

Attic blown fibreglass insulation upgrade and vent installation

Their proposal was very clear about the work that needed to be done and what each aspect would cost. The total price was very competitive with the two other quotes we got. We decided to go with Kovar because they seemed very knowledgeable about how the upgrades should be done to conform to current codes and best practices. Once we accepted their proposal, the crew came promptly and completed the work quickly and very professionally. The work site was left clean and tidy when they finished. We were very pleased with the quality of their work and would definitely recommend them to friends and neighbours.
