Sky Light

Inside work to build the skylight vault was done very efficiently. The carpenter was highly skilled and ensures a neat clean worksite throughout the work. He was very pleasant and always wore a face mask. He carefully built up the walls of the vault and did a very fine job in finishing the work. The team that installed the skylight were clearly used to installing sky lights and did the job in a couple of hours. This resulted in minimum impact on my house. Overall a very professional job.

Roof reshingling

Very happy so far. When selecting the contractor, Kovar Roofing had a good price and had excellent references, they were also very helpful in providing addresses to view the shingle choices we were considering.

They started work exactly when originally scheduled and despite some minor weather problems completed the work on time. Site clean up was good.

Time will tell how the work holds up, but from my (albeit inexpert) inspection it looks to to be good quality.

Friendly crew, no surprises.

Friendly, Personable, Professional & of Quality

Jason and his team are competent, professional (in both attitude and workmanship) and all around honest good guys. Their process was transparent (quoting, invoicing) and felt like good value for the dollar. I would recommend.

Roof replacement

I found this company based on high reviews on HomeStars, and it worked out well. There were a lot of complicating details associated with the roof replacement, and some additional work that had to be done (installing proper vent covers and dealing with the AC mounted on the mansard). Jason was very accommodating to my requests and schedule, and he also organized and coordinated the additional work for this project, which was much appreciated. He responded to my questions and concerns, unlike some of the previous contractors from whom I got quotes. The team that did the work were very nice guys who also took the time to answer my questions about various aspects of the job and how the roof system worked. Although some shingles are not flat just yet, they explained that it will take about a year (and hot weather) for the shingles to settle and for the roof to have a uniform look. Last but not least, I am very happy with their 50 year non-prorated warranty. Will definitely consider Kovar Contracting for future home renovation projects!

Great work on small ugly job

I have a small roof section that had seen better days. It was a small, ugly job (several layers of rotting roofing and underlay, weird angles), and many roofers passed it up, but not Kovar. While it did take them a few months to get to it (it wasn't leaking so I was ok with that), the job they did was professional and good value. 1.5 thumbs up (for the wait time)!

Roofing

The Kovar Roofing staff were competent, very pleasant and cooperative. They were wiling to do a little extra. They cleaned up very well. They were able to stick to the original schedule very closely.

Project done quickly with good end result

I was looking to add light to a dark home office and had recently read about sun tunnels. I called the office and booked an appointment for an estimate within a week. Price I was quoted was not the least expensive ( based on phone calls to others) but it was fair and I felt confident in the company after meeting Jason who came to do the quote. Although he had told me it would likely be 3-4 weeks before it would be done I received a call in two weeks saying they were ready to go. Installation went well, the installer wore a mask, used a drop sheet and took care to clean as much as he could before he left. The company makes good use of electronic contracts etc making this a quick and easy way to get the job done. I will certainly call them again should I have a need for other roofing work.

Leaf Guards

Kovar Contracting was very responsive and followed-up with a plan to quote our services. They were friendly and professional, working closely with us to prioritize our projects. Although very busy, they quoted our work and were able to fit us into their schedule. We were very pleased with their work and highly recommend them.
