I had Paragon Exteriors replace my roof and gutters in May. I received quotes from multiple companies and I found Paragon to be reasonably priced. Jake, their initial point of contact was wonderful to work with and did not provide the ‘hard sell’ other companies did to try to get my business. Paragon did a wonderful job with communication. They were accurate and prompt in providing the start date to replace the roof as well as the dates to replace the gutters. They completed the work on the date stated. The day they were scheduled to replace the roof, they started early and did a great job. They were thorough in their cleanup afterwards. I didn’t have any issues with nails or scraps of roofing materials laying around after the project was completed. Overall, I would definitely recommend using Paragon Exteriors!

Paragon Exteriors did a great job with my roof. They responded quickly when I filled out the form for a quote and answered all my questions. They emailed me the quote with opinions and also had financing available right on their webpage. I never felt pressured like I did from some other quotes I received. The crew did a great job and I'm very happy I went with Paragon.

I have nothing but good things to say about Paragon Exteriors and Jake the owner. Jake and crew were extremely professional and did a great job on our roof. Communication throughout the quoting and inspection process was prompt and easy to understand, and the job was done in a timely manner. The crew on site was clean and conscientious around the house and property. Our job was an insurance claim, and Jake assisted in this process and provided helpful insight when I did not understand. I would not hesitate to recommend Paragon for any roofing project.

Great Service, very professional and reasonable. We had a wind storm pass through our area which ripped off quite a few roof shingles. I talked with Jake and he was great, he assured me it's not a big deal and they would take care of it. As it worked out, Jake got someone there right away because we were expecting more heavy rain. They did take pictures of the repair, I just couldn't find them. When it's time for a new roof, these are my guys.

Paragon installed a new roof with complete tear off in July of 2021 and I’ve waited to post a review to see how it holds up in all different Wisconsin weather. I’m very happy with how quiet it is in the house even in the pouring rain! Although last winter wasn’t too heavy with snow we didn’t have any ice dams, issues with any leaking, or trouble retaining heat. Paragon gave us an incredibly competitive price and had the shortest lead time for install- the crew arrived around 7am and were done by 11am! Overall, Jake and Tim were very helpful and responsive when answering all my questions. A few things were missed that were included in our quote but Tim was quick to come by and fix everything and review the work himself. Will be considering them for new gutters later on.

What Drives The Cost Of Your New Roof?

Paragon Exteriors LLC Logo

What's It Cost To Replace Your Roof?  Well, that's a difficult question to answer without knowing the specifics about your home.  The size of your home, the pitch of the roof, the specific roofing materials, complexity, and extra add-ons, all contribute to the price of a new roof.  This will guide will hopefully explain the cost variables a little better.

Our Price Match Guarantee:  With Paragon Exteriors LLC you can have the peace of mind knowing that you're never going to overpay for your roof.  We will match ANY roofing quote from any other licensed, insured, and factory certified roofing contractor.  In order for a roof to be factory certified it must be installed to meet specific standards.  ALL of our roof replacements meet or exceed manufacturers specifications so you can qualify for the full warranty.  If the roofing shingles and installation are the same, why on earth would you want to pay more?

Shingle Tear-Off and Removal

Tear-Off & Disposal

Our first step is tearing off and disposing of your old roofing which is a big part of the project.  This allows to inspect and replace any rotted wood decking as necessary and lets us offer the full manufacturer 50 year non-prorated warranty.

Replacing Rotten Roof Decking During Roof Replacement Project

Roof Decking

After tearing off your old shingles the roof decking must be inspected.  In many cases, it's totally fine.  Sometimes, however there are sections of roof decking that will need to be replaced.  If your roof was leaking, your roof decking could be rotten.

Ice and Water Shield Installation During New Roof Replacement

Ice and Water Shield

Ice and water shield runs along the outer edges and valleys of your roof or anywhere the roof meets a wall.  This is an essential addition for your roof to protect against ice dams and wind driven rain.  Make sure your roofer is including this!

The Installation Of Synthetic Roof Underlayment On New Roof Replacement

Synthetic Underlayment

Otherwise known as roofing felt.  This important layer provides extra protection against leaks and wind driven rain from getting up underneath your shingles.  There are different types and qualities of underlayment.

The Installation Of Proper Roof Venting Ensures Your Roof Performance

Roof Venting

Proper venting is critical to any new roof installation as it prevents condensation from forming within your attic.  If your roof doesn't have adequate ventilation we can install more ventilation for you during the roof replacement.

Roof Flashing Installation

Flashing

Flashing is thin metal that is formed and installed to direct water away from critical areas of your roof.  Typically this is installed in valleys, walls, around chimneys, and vents.  Poorly installed or missing flashing is the cause of many roof leaks.

Roofing Shingles On Roof Waiting For Replacement

Shingles

Shingles are the final layer of your roof and they are the most expensive next to labor.  There are cheap options however we use what we know and trust which are most often Owens Corning Duration Architectural shingles.

Roof Pitch Can Affect The Price Of Your Roof Replacement Cost

Roof Pitch

If your roof is "walkable" it makes replacement easier.  When your roof has a very steep pitch (steep slope) it can require additional equipment and safety measures to complete properly, thus increasing the price sometimes substantially.

Hiring A Certified Roofing Contractor Means You Qualify For The Maximum Roof Warranty

Warranty

Not all roofing warranties are created equal!  Depending on the shingles you choose and how they are installed there may be additional charges to have your roof fully protected with a non-pro rated warranty.  Ask your roofer for details.

Labor Cost Is A Major Factor When Considering The Price Of Your New Roof Replacement

Labor

Labor is probably the biggest contributing factor to the cost of replacing your roof.  We typically run a two to four man crew with our roofing projects.  Excellent craftsmanship is one of our hallmarks and we only employ the best!

Labor Cost Is A Major Factor When Considering The Price Of Your New Roof Replacement

Drip Edge

A drip edge is a metal flashing that is fastened to the outer edge of your roof (over ice and water shield) that prevents water from getting behind your gutters and fascia.  This is another critical component to a properly installed roof.

Do they offer any type of workmanship warranty or after sales service if there is ever a problem with your roof?

Do they have many photos and references of the work they are capable of doing?
