Kovar Roofing 

Ottawa Roofing Contractors

Neglected and overlooked, the roof of a house holds paramount significance. Its importance is often realized only when damage or leaks become evident, by which time it is too late.

Don’t let the small stuff grow into big problems! Weather and everyday wear and tear can cause issues with your roof, but addressing them promptly can save you time and money. Keep your roof well-maintained and fix any small issues right away to avoid costly complications down the road.

At Kovar Roofing, our team is dedicated to offering a comprehensive range of top-notch roofing solutions. No matter if you require roof repairs, replacements, or maintenance, we have a solution for all your Roofing needs. Ultimately, our objective remains unchanged, which is to safeguard and preserve the structural soundness of your residential or commercial property.


Expert Roofing Services

Kovar Roofing provides an extensive range of roofing services and the surrounding regions. Our team of expert and licensed contractors are ready to assist you with roof maintenance, repairs, or replacements.

It begins with roof inspections. Regular evaluations by a knowledgeable professional can help prevent potential damage caused by minor issues in the future. By having one of Kovar Roofing’s experienced roofers assess your roof, you can save a significant amount of money by proactively avoiding extensive future damage and quickly addressing problems.

It is advisable to have your roof evaluated at least once every three years. Additionally, while not essential, it is recommended to perform biannual roof maintenance – once in the spring and once in the fall. Our team of roofing professionals at Kovar Roofing will clear away fallen leaves, pine needles, twigs, branches, and other debris, as well as address loose or damaged shingles.

We also provide winter snow and ice removal services. Ice build up can cause damming and inevitable leaks to your roof. Allow our skilled team to remove the ice from your roof before they cause leaks inside your home.

Our certified professionals at Kovar Roofing offer a diverse selection of roofing services in Ottawa and the surrounding region. We handle everything from inspections and maintenance to snow and ice removal during the winter season. Experience the Kovar Difference today!

However, even with regular inspections, it’s impossible to completely avoid all potential roof damage. Inclement weather might cause a shingle to be torn off, which should be promptly replaced to prevent further harm to your roof. If you require roofing repairs in Ottawa, Kovar Roofing is here to assist you. Our services encompass various issues related to roof repairs in Ottawa, including flashing replacement or repair, leak repairs, storm damage repairs, skylight replacement, heat trace cable installation, attic ventilation, exhaust ventilation, and sun tunnel installation.

Even the finest roof will eventually require replacement, whether it’s in twenty, thirty, forty years – or even longer. Regardless of the circumstances, if your roof is due for a complete replacement, our team of skilled and knowledgeable experts at Kovar Roofing is prepared to handle your roof replacement needs.

Your roof replacement project will commence by our team removing your current roof down to its core. Subsequently, we will substitute the shingles, membrane, and insulation if required. By replacing all components, you will have the assurance that your entire roof is in harmony and conforms to the same set of standards. Additionally, you can also take advantage of a 25-year workmanship warranty and 50-year comprehensive product warranty. Experience peace of mind with our comprehensive roof replacement service.

Moreover, we provide a steadfast assurance of the excellence in our merchandise and craftsmanship. We undertake the full scope of the project in-house and our certified team will ensure your roof replacement is executed seamlessly from beginning to end.

Our Selection of Roofing Materials

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 Roofing 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:

Ottawa Roof Repair

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.

Ottawa Roofing Materials & Roof Styles

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.

Ottawa Roofing Materials & Roof Styles

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 your roofing project is, our team of experts is here to help you from the first consultation to the finished project.

Our promise as contractors is to build higher standards and value into every project while delivering professional expertise, exceptional customer service and quality construction.

Our Roofing Testimonials


Their workers were skilled and very hard working. I can definitely recommend Kovar to anybody in the Ottawa area who needs new shingles!

Home Owner

The Kovar repair person came immediately after the massive wind storm and checked out my roof. He did the repair I noticed and repaired another area only evident when he was on the roof. He showed me the before and after pictures. My neighbour noticed him on my roof and asked for his contact. She had been calling several companies and received no answer.
Kovar came immediately to fix her roof too and she was very relieved, as she had missing shingles.

Shari Kajiura
Home Owner

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 replaced at no cost to us and without any hassle.

Home Owner

An extremely pleasant and competent team. 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.

Suzanne Ascroft
Home Owner

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!

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.

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.

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!

What are you Certifications and Warranties?

When you hire a contractor to replace or repair something as essential as your roof, you naturally want to know that your project is in good hands. Warranties and certifications provide you with the assurance that your project will be done professionally and successfully. We at Kovar Roofing are proud to say that all our installers are manufacturer-certified and trained, enabling us to offer our customers the best warranties, including:

  • Certainteed Sure Start PLUS 5 Star – a 50-Year Warranty (offered only by a select few contractors. Covers not only the materials for 50 years, but also the workmanship for 25 years.)
  • BP Certified 50-Year Warranty
  • Royal 10 Vinyl Siding
  • Velux 20-Year Product Warranty

  • Certified 5 Star Shingle Masters for Certainteed
  • A+ Accreditation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)
  • Certified Velux Skylight installers
