What we do

Ottawa Roofing Professionals

Our team at Kovar Roofing is here to provide you with all kind of roofing services in Ottawa. We have got you covered, whether you need to repair, replace, or maintain your roof. In the end, our goal remains the same: to ensure the safety and integrity of your house or building.


The roof of a house is probably the most important part of the house that most house owners spend very little time thinking about – until they notice some kind of damage or leak, at which point the damage is already done.

Smaller issues can stem from weather events or regular wear and tear, but they can expand into bigger problems if left unattended for too long. To avoid such a scenario and the costs associated with it, it is important to maintain your roof regularly and fix smaller issues as soon as possible.

Our team at Kovar Roofing is here to provide you with all kind of roofing services in Ottawa. We have got you covered, whether you need to repair, replace, or maintain your roof. In the end, our goal remains the same: to ensure the safety and integrity of your house or building.

Expert Roofing Services in Ottawa

Kovar Roofing offers a wide variety of roofing services in Ottawa and its surrounding area. Our team of trained and certified professionals can help maintain, repair or replace your roof.

Seasonal Maintenance

It all starts with inspections. Having an expert take a look and evaluate your roof regularly can mitigate any damage that potential small issues can cause down the line. By having one of the roofing professionals from Kovar Roofing inspect your roof, you may be able to save thousands of dollars by preventing serious damage and cutting off problems right away.

It is generally recommended that you have your roof inspected at least once every three years. In addition, you should maintain your roof twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall. During the maintenance, our roofing experts at Kovar Roofing will remove fallen leaves, pine needles, twigs, branches and other debris, along with loose or broken shingles.

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

From inspection to maintenance, even snow and ice removal in the winter: our team of certified professionals at Kovar Roofing provides a wide range of roofing services in Ottawa and its surrounding area.

Roof Repairs Ottawa

But even regular inspections are not able to prevent all potential damage to your roof. A storm may rip off a shingle, for example. That shingle needs to be replaced as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your roof, for example the underlayment. Kovar Roofing handles these kinds of roofing repairs in Ottawa, along with any other issue related to your roof. Other roofing repairs in Ottawa that we offer include flashing replacement or repair, leak repairs, or storm damage repairs.

Roof Replacement/Installation Ottawa

Even the best roof will need eventual replacement, whether it is after twenty, thirty, forty years – or even longer. Whatever the case: if your roof is ready for a full replacement, our team of trained and experienced professionals at Kovar Roofing is ready to tackle your roof replacement in Ottawa and the surrounding area.

Your roof replacement in Ottawa project will begin with our team removing your existing roof to get it back to the bare bones. After that, we replace the shingles, membrane, and – if necessary – the insulation. By replacing everything, you get the peace of mind of knowing that your entire roof is in sync and adheres to the same standard. Plus: you can also benefit from a 50-year warranty.

Furthermore, we guarantee the quality of our products and workmanship. We do not outsource any part of the project; our crew will complete your roof replacement in Ottawa from start to finish.

Whatever roofing services in Ottawa you are looking for: Kovar Roofing has you covered. If you want to inquire or receive more information about our services or request a quote, please contact us today. You can reach us Monday to Friday at (613) 799-1704 between 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM.

The Materials We Use

We believe that the best job is only as good as the material that is used. In other words: if you do not use high-quality materials, it doesn’t matter how expertly the job is done – the lack of quality of the material will show sooner rather than later. That is why we at Kovar Contracting only use high-quality materials from the best manufacturers and state-of-the-art technology to ensure your roof is made to last.

We currently offer three types of materials:

  • Asphalt Shingles : the most popular type of roofing in North America are asphalt shingles. Their combination of low prices and long lifespan make them a very cost-efficient option. Plus: there is a variety of colours and styles to choose from. Their downside: asphalt shingles are susceptible to damage and likely require occasional repairs.
  • Cedar Shakes : cedar shakes are less popular than asphalt shingles, but they look great and add value to your home. Cedar shakes are made of hand-split cedar wood products that allow the natural grains of the wood to shine. They are usually made to order, which prolongs the process but gives your roof a nice, custom tone. While they are a little more expensive, cedar shakes last longer than other types of shingles which balances out the cost in the long-term.
  • Metal Roofing : while admittedly not as elegant as asphalt shingles or cedar shakes, sheet metal roofs are very resistant and can last longer than both shingles and shakes. However, they are also more expensive. We offer Wakefield Bridge Metal Shingle, Standing Seam Install and Americana Panel.

Whatever material you choose, our team at Kovar Roofing will make sure that your roof will be made to last. Please also feel free to consult our experts for any questions and details on the different types of materials.

How Long Does a Roof Last

A common asphalt shingle roof usually lasts around 15-20 years; metal roofs can last for about twice as long. The most enduring option are clay tiles that can last an entire lifetime. However, the longevity and lifespan of your roof will be affected by the materials you use, the climate you live in, and if you get regular maintenance or not. In the end, a roof is like anything else: the better you take care of it, the longer it will last.

What Are the Benefits of a New Roof?

Some of the beneifts of a new roof are rather obvious such as fixing any existing issues or preventing any looming ones, or getting a new warranty. However, there are other benefits that may accompany the installation of a new roof. For example:

  • Increasing Your Home’s Value: this may be especially of interest if you are thinking about selling your home
  • Improving Your Home’s Energy Efficiency:
  • Protecting the Air Quality in Your Home
  • Increasing the Curb Appeal of Your Home
What Is the Best Roofing Material?

The term ‘best’ depends on what you are looking for. The most common and popular roofing material is asphalt. Many homeowners find it to be the ideal choice because it is affordable and provides great durability. However, there may be other considerations for you when choosing a roof. Consult with the experts at Kovar Roofing to find the ideal solution for your individual situation.

What Are the Most Common Roof Problems?

There are a number of roof problems that can arise for a variety of reasons, from regular wear and tear, weather events or freak accidents. Among some of the most common problems are:

Some of these problems may start out as small issues but they can grow into bigger issues if left unattended. We therefore recommend to have an expert inspect your roof regularly. Our team of certified roofing contractors can help you with that. They can determine the cause of your problem and provide you with a solution. Reach out to us today and let us help you!

Why Should You Hire a Professional Roofer?

The idea of turning your roof repair or replacement into a DIY project may seem attractive to some people, mostly due to perceived lower costs. But we would discourage this thought – not only because we are in the business of roofing services in Ottawa but also because working on the roof can be dangerous without the necessary knowledge, expertise, materials, and safety training. We bring all of these to the table and offer a number of warranties to provide you with the ease of mind that your money is invested sensibly and your roof is built to last.
