Replaced roof vents

They were quick to respond, asked appropriate questions, and provided a quote in a timely fashion

Their quote was higher than a competitor, but their professionalism was the key to our choice.

The work was done within a reasonable timeframe, and was done without issues or intervention needed from us.

We've already asked them to quote for another project for next year. I feel comfortable suggesting this company to anyone looking for roofing projects.

Moisture in crawl space

Kovar was our roof contractor 8 years ago. The day before we were leaving on vacation, we discovered moisture in the barrier in our crawl space in one of the upstairs bedrooms.

Kovar dispatched an employee that day to
Come and investigate the issue. They inspected the roof in the area where the problem was occurring to see if they was any damage or vents that were leaking, then removed the plastic barrier and insulation in the crawl space to determine why we were getting moisture. Although there was no structural issues, the only recommendation was to remove items stored in this area and monitor during next rain storm.
We have had no leakage and the area is dry after several bad rain storms.
Suggested possible moisture issue might have been due to insulation being tight against the boards and this may have caused a build up of moisture. Also suggested using spray foam in this area instead of insulation.
Although the true reason for moisture build up in the plastic barrier/ insulation was undetermined, the fact that they came immediately to investigate and determine that we didnt have a leak, gave us peace of mind for our trip. We also didnt want our house sitter to worry about a leaky roof.

Roofing Install

After reaching out to numerous Roofing Installers for estimates I became tired of not hearing back or being advised there was up to a two year wait.

While discussing this with a friend, Kovar Contracting was suggested to me so I reached out and heard back from Jason that same day.

As a result our roof was completed within a month and a half of our initial consult.

Jason and his employees were beyond friendly and extremly professional. They completed our roof install in two days.(Would have been sooner but they were rained out on the latter half od the first day).

We will be using Kovar Contracting for future projects.

Roof vent and ventilation fan set up

The company was most efficient at fixing a new roof vent and ventilation fan for a new bathroom. The roof is 45 degrees pitch on a 100 year old house so the attention paid to details was appreciated.

New roof

We hired Kovar Inc to replace our shingles, and we are very pleased with the outcome.
Jason is very professional, and he is qucik to respond. Once his crew was done, they cleaned up after themselves. I strongly recommend them.

Roof Repairs

I contacted Kovar after the Easter 2023 ice storm, with damage to the roof from fallen branches. Kyle came when he said he would, gave what appeared to me to be an honest assessment and didn't try to pad his estimate. The work was done when he said it would be done, and at the price quoted.

Metal Roof Repair 2022-1815

I contacted Kovar Roofing to remove a leaking oil furnace vent, patch up the hole left behind, and a full repair of another section of my metal roof. They came out to inspect the job, took notes and an estimate was emailed to me shortly afterwards. Although it took a while to schedule the repair, the job was completed as promised. This is a company that stands by its work, and every single person Ive dealt with is professional, and polite. The metal roof patch is a close match to the original and is barely noticeable.
