Expert Roofing Replacement and Repair Services

As a local Ottawa roofing contractor, we often have customers wanting to discuss their roofing concerns with our expert repair technicians and installers. “What should we do about loose and broken shingles?” “What is the best choice for a new roof on our office premises?” “How long will our roof last?” “Should we install shakes or shingles for our replacement roof?” And so on…

Here are just some of the services we offer our clients:

Roof Installations in Ottawa

If your roof is ready for a full replacement, our team of trained and experienced installers is ready to get the job done quickly and efficiently. We will remove your existing roof to get it back to the bare bones. Then, we replace the shingles, membrane, and sometimes even the insulation.

By replacing everything, you get complete peace of mind and can also benefit from a 50-year warranty. Furthermore, we guarantee the quality of our products and workmanship and we do not outsource; our crew completes the entire project from start to finish.

Roofing Repairs

Sometimes you do not need a replacement, but you do need timely and skilled repairs. Our team can perform a detailed inspection to identify the issues. Before you lose more time and incur damage to the interiors of your home or office, we will correct the problems with your roof as quickly as possible. Some of the roofing repair services we offer include:

  • Flashing replacement or repair
  • Leak repairs
  • Shingle replacement
  • Storm damage repairs

Seasonal Maintenance

Your roof requires seasonal maintenance to last through the warranty period. You need to have your roof inspected at least once every three years by a professional. Also, you must maintain your roof twice per year – once in the spring and once in the fall to remove fallen leaves, pine needles, debris, twigs and branches, loose or broken shingles, etc.

Our team can help maintain your roof, and we also offer snow and ice removal in the winter. Snow can wreak havoc on your roof and weaken the integrity with the tremendous weight. Let our professional crew take care of keeping snow and ice off your roof and preserve the life of your roofing materials.

Materials We Use for Roofing Replacement and Repair

Kovar Contracting, Inc. uses the latest materials and technology to ensure your roof is done right the first time. Currently, we offer our customers two types of materials for their roof:

  • Asphalt Shingles: Shingles are the most popular type of roofing used in the United States as well as Canada. The asphalt shingle is predominant, and this is what we use for most roofing projects. Our company purchases all shingles from CertainTeed; we are certified installers for this leading brand.
  • Cedar Shakes: Shake roofing is less popular, but adds value and aesthetics to your home. It uses hand-split wood products that allow the natural grains of the wood to shine. Shakes last longer than other types of shingles, so while they might cost you more upfront, they are worth it in the long-term.

When you hire an Ottawa roofing contractor, nothing adds peace of mind like a guarantee and certification. That is why we proudly offer customers the best warranties and our installers are manufacturer-certified and trained.


  • GAF-Elk Product Warranty
  • CertainTeed Warranty – a 50-Year Warranty offered only by a select few contractors
