Paragon Exteriors is an excellent choice for a roof install. Not only was their price extremely competitive, they were able to do our entire install within one morning. They worked efficiently and very cleanly. I definitely recommend their services.

Caroline Rodriguez March 28, 2023

Our house was hit with hail in summer and damaged the front part of our roof, gutters, downspouts and siding. Another town was hit before ours and I went to that town to look at all the advertisements and stopped at a couple of houses to speak with the homeowners regarding their experience with their roofs. One of these houses had a Paragon sign outside of it and the homeowner was extremely happy with their roof. I contacted Paragon and Jake came out to our house and inspected the roof. He agreed only the front part of the roof was damaged and provided an estimate back very quickly. We signed the contract and Paragon put us on the schedule within 2 weeks of signing had our front part of our roof ripped off and new shingles on. The crew was very friendly and all work was done within a day. After that they put on new gutters and downspouts and the house looks great. I would recommend Paragon Exteriors to anyone for the great experience we had with them.

I found Paragon Exteriors to be very professional and responsive to my needs. My commercial building was needing a new roof. they did an entire removal and install in one day. And they were able to do it on a day the business was closed so no disruption to clients. The price was competitive and the work was excellent.

Joshua Stewart October 13, 2022

Paragon Exteriors did an excellent job on our roof. In fact, they did our roof twice in a year due to a horrible hail storm that caused our neighborhood to be declared a disaster area. I am very happy with the work that Paragon did. The were responsive, quick, efficient, and thorough. They cleaned up after the installation very well. Thank you Paragon for your work.

Jake and team were very responsive and provided great quality.

Kyle Wilbur September 12, 2022

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!

Lana Stetz August 3, 2022

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.

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 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 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


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 is probably the biggest contributing factor to the cost of roof replacement in Waukesha.  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.



If you're hiring a roofer to replace your roof then it's important they are properly insured.  We are properly licensed and insured in Wisconsin so you know that your property and our employees are always going to be protected.
