Re Roofing

Suzan Ascroft from Ottawa / Nov 03, 2014

My house was built in 1991. One part of the roof is subject to rapid deterioration. Kovar Contracting diagnosed the problem as excessive run-off during rain. An extremely pleasant and competent team repaired the roof and installed channels to contain the excess water and protect the roof. They also fixed the chimney cap so the fireplace no longer drips somewhere out of sight during rain. The work was done quickly and there was nothing for us to clean up. It was a pleasure to do business with Jason and his crew.


Roofing & Shingle Installation

James from Ottawa / Oct 30, 2014

We needed to get new shingles installed and we contacted Kovar. Their workers were skilled and very hard working. I can definitely recommend Kovar for anybody in the Ottawa area who needs new shingles! James

Roof Replacement

Stephen Wetmore from Ottawa / Oct 09, 2014

I spent quite a bit of time gathering quotes, as a roof is a significant expense and I wanted it done right. Meeting Jason immediately put me at ease, and what other companies quoted as extras were included in Jason’s quote. He and his crew did a great job on a difficult pitch, we’re really happy with the results and service we received. I highly recommend Jason and his crew!


Roof Redone

MacLean from Ottawa / Sep 25, 2014

Kovar came highly recommended and we were not disappointed. Jason provided a free estimate which was in line with other roofing company that provided estimate. Jason and his crew were very professional, friendly and on task. The job was well done and the site was cleaned-up at the end of each night. One of the ladders had damaged our new eves through and Jason had it completely replace at no cost to us and without any hassle. A+ for customer service. They are all really pleasant to deal with and were quick to respond to emails even after the job was done and paid for. Great work guys!


Roofing Replacement

S. Robinson from Ottawa / Jul 22, 2014

Had our entire roof re-shingled with Kovar – and they have done a top notch job. The roof was a very a large job (3000+ sq ft.) with many ridges. All work was done meticulously. Contractor uses higher quality CertainTeed Landmark tiles. Highly recommended – small additional details were seen to such as additional flashing and valleys added. Contractor is transparent in their dealings with customers and highly dependable. Recommended Plus! –Come see our house for an idea of the work. Very fair contract terms and honest open approach. Great job Kovar!


Re-Roofing Home

Dani Jsoum from Etobicoke / Jun 17, 2014

Kovar Contracting was recommended by my nephew. Jason came around for the free estimate and was very professional. Quote was very explicit as to what was to be done, and e-mailed. Job was done ahead of time, looks great and the cleanup done was amazing. His team was very friendly and graciously helped carry deck blocks in the garage. We were pleased with the quality of their work.


New Roof

Carol from Greely / Sep 27, 2013

Kovar Contracting did an excellent job re-roofing our home. They were professional, friendly and we were very pleased with the quality of their work. They also cleaned up all the debris every day before they left the site.


Skylights/Ice Shield/Replacing Roof Tiles ect.

Dianne Salt from Manotick / Sep 16, 2013

We found Jason through BBB. He was extremely communicative giving us all the information we needed to make the decisions we needed to make the changes. He replied to all my emails by return. The job was done efficiently, quickly leaving no mess at all. Good job Jason!



Steve Mazerall from Ottawa / Aug 30, 2013

Jason was recommended by an HVAC Contractor who replaced the furnace. Price was no more than a roofer who wrote a number on a piece of letterhead and left it in the mailbox. Quote was very explicit as to what was to be done, so there was no guessing. Job was done on time, looks great and the cleanup done was amazing. While doing the roof the crew noticed that the flashing around the chimney needed replacing (not part of the roof job), and returned a few days later to replace the flashing at a very reasonable price. Jason is a very ‘down to earth’ yet very professional contractor. I would recommend Kovar Contracting to anyone needing roof work done.


Re-Roofing Flat Roof

Renate from Ottawa / Dec 17, 2012

I found Jason through the Better Business Bureau. His last name sounded familiar and sure enough, his grandparents were neighbours and friends of my parents. I was happy to have a connection and was also very pleased with Jason’s ability to communicate by e-mail and also provide two references I requested. I also asked him to add to his invoice his opinion about the longevity of the adjoining sloped roof and he did. This will come in handy to show any future property buyers. The price was also right as Jason has low overhead. Thanks for everything, Jason!


Mansard Roof

Rob Lee from Ottawa / Nov 15, 2012

We are very pleased with Kovar Contracting. They recommended and very professionally installed appropriate shingles and metal valleys on our complicated mansard roof with seven projecting windows and a unique 18’ projecting front entrance. Furthermore, the metal valleys were installed in such a way as to avoid future rot issues on the window/door facings (they are painted wood — we did not want to use vinyl). If the shingles and metal valleys had not been installed with precision, and if the facing boards on the windows and at the front entrance had not also been cut with precision, all would be very noticeable in a negative sense. Due to the diligence of the Kovar team, we are delighted with the end result and highly recommend the company to those wanting quality work.
