Soffit & Fascia Repairs

Repairs were needed due to pest damage - racoons and squirrels. It was a smallish job but somewhat urgent for me. They managed to fit it into a busy schedule. Very pleased with the solution .. nothing getting in attic now unless they come through the walls! Well done -- custom aluminum coverings made on site. Quick, tidy, friendly .. and safely in these Covid days!

Re-siding, new soffits, fascia, gutters & downspouts

Kovar did an excellent job replacing the almost 50 year old siding, soffits, fascia, gutters and downspouts on our house. Alex and Kevin, who did the work, are highly skilled craftsmen who know their business inside-out. And they are very pleasant individuals who took pains to make everything just so, to clean up after every day, and to explain what they were doing.

We are extremely satisfied with Kovar Contracting and highly recommend the company. We will go to them again, if we have another reno job of the sort they do.

Aluminium Siding Repair

Severe winds had damaged my siding. It required putting it back in place and putting a small screw to prevent it from opening up again.
Also Brian found another partial separation on the other side of the house which he also fixed.
After my phone call to KOVAR Brian arrived within 45 minutes.
Good efficient job.

Evestrough cleaning and gutter guards applied.

First Review

Replace posts in front entryway of the house and re large the cementwork

They gave me a clear estimate before starting. The workers were knowledgeable professionals who followed COVID protocols and were very pleasant to deal with. The quality and time to completion of the work was excellent.

Attic isulation

Scott from Kovar Contracting came in to top up the insulation in the attic of our older rental building, and installed some baffles to help with airflow. He and his colleague were professional and knew their stuff, and they worked quickly and efficiently. He also identified a possible issue (partially boarded-up soffits) along with a strategy to monitor and ensure that it doesn't cause problems. Thanks again for helping us get this sorted out!

Attic Insulation & Sealing

We used Kovar Contracting for the second time on our house and again were very pleased with their work and service. After a windstorm induced leak in our roof we asked Kovar to come over to inspect things inside after the outside was repaired. That inspection generated a discussion with Scott about attic insulation and revealed the fact that Enbridge was offering a rebate. Scott offered to provide us a quote and help us with the Enbridge paperwork if necessary. We contacted several other companies for a quote for the insulation work and picked Kovar due to competitive pricing and known quality workmanship. On the day, Scott and the team pitched up on time and completed the work, sealing up gaps that ceiling and bathroom fan installers had left, installing or adjusting baffle vents, and plusing up the attic insulation to a full R60. They were professional, efficient, and cleaned up after the work was finished. We highly recommend Kovar.

Attic insulation done right

Asked a few different companies regarding attic insulation. All companies offered the different options (top-up, remove and replace,...) Scott really took the time to understand what my insulation needs were, and made a few suggestions. Price was slightly below other quotes I had received - and it included a few extras I needed to be done at the time such as running new vents through the attic to the roof. They kept the site clean while doing the job and they were able to do it within the agreed upon time window. The crew did a good job and I highly recommend Scott and his team at Kovar to get it done right.

Soffite repair

Some racoons had damaged a section of the soffite on the roof. The guy who came managed to fix it in barely an hour. I jad another company do an estimate before calling Kovar Contracting and they we asking for almost twice what I ended up paying. I am very satisfied with the service they provided.
