How Often Do You Need Roof Inspections?

It's a good idea to have your roof inspected annually or at the very least every couple of years so you can catch potential problems early.

Any problems with a roofing system can cause very expensive issues to fix further down the road, like water damage and mold.  Paragon Exteriors LLC offers FREE annual roof inspections for our clients that have had us replace the roof on their home.

Your home will benefit from our years of experience with different types of roofing materials and many complex roofing projects.

Questions About Roof Inspections?

An asphalt shingle roofing inspection is a thorough evaluation of the condition of your roof's asphalt shingles, underlayment, flashing, gutters, and ventilation systems. This inspection aims to identify any damage or potential issues to ensure the roof's structural integrity and longevity.  Inspections like this are particularly important after any storm or weather event, if your roof has been leaking or suffered visible damage, or if you're involved with a real estate transaction and you'd like a more detailed report on the roof than what most home inspectors will provide.

Waukesha County experiences a wide range of weather conditions throughout the year, such as heavy snowfall, strong winds, rain, hail, and intense sunlight. These conditions can cause damage to your roof over time. Regular inspections help identify any problems early on, ensuring the durability and longevity of your roof.

Hail can cause significant damage to a roof, especially if the roofing material is asphalt shingles. The damage occurs due to the impact of hailstones on the roof's surface, and the severity depends on the size, density, and velocity of the hailstones, as well as the age and condition of the roof.

Here's how hail can damage a roof:

  1. Shingle bruising: When hailstones strike the surface of asphalt shingles, they can create dents or bruises. These bruises may not be immediately visible but can cause the underlying layers of the shingle to become damaged, weakening the shingle's structure and reducing its lifespan.

  2. Granule loss: Asphalt shingles are coated with granules that protect the shingle from the sun's UV rays and provide water-shedding capabilities. Hailstones can dislodge these granules, exposing the asphalt layer beneath. This exposure can lead to accelerated aging of the shingle and increase the risk of leaks.

  3. Cracks or punctures: Large or high-velocity hailstones can cause cracks or even puncture shingles, compromising the waterproofing capabilities of the roof and increasing the risk of leaks.

  4. Damage to flashing and vents: Hail can also dent or damage the metal flashing, vents, and other roof components, leading to water infiltration and reduced roof performance.

Hail damage can be difficult to detect, especially from the ground level. If you suspect that your roof has been damaged by hail, schedule an inspection with Paragon Exteriors to inspect your roof to assess the damage and recommend appropriate repairs.  We can provide necessary documentation to your insurance company as well.

It is recommended to have a roofing inspection completed at least once every two years, or definitely after any significant weather event, such as a hailstorm or very strong wind. However, if your roof is older (like 15-25 years old) or you suspect any issues such as leaks or visible damage, it's best to schedule a roofing inspection sooner than later.

Some common issues found during roofing inspections include:

  • Damaged, curled, or missing shingles
  • Granule loss on shingles
  • Damaged, missing, or rusted flashing
  • Mold or mildew growth within your attic
  • Poor ventilation or insulation (leading to moisture, mold, mildew)
  • Blocked or damaged gutters
  • Water leaks or stains on the interior which would indicate condensation or leaks

While you can perform a basic visual inspection of your roof, it is best to hire a professional roofing contractor like Paragon Exteriors to perform a thorough inspection. As professionals we have the necessary tools, experience, and training to identify and address any issues accurately.

The cost of an asphalt shingle roofing inspection can vary depending on the size and complexity of your roof. On average, homeowners in Waukesha County can expect to pay between $245 to $500 for a professional inspection.

If your roof fails the inspection, Paragon Exteriors will provide recommendations for repairs or replacement, depending on the extent of the damage. It's essential to address any issues promptly to prevent further damage to your home and protect its structural integrity.


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.

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.

Choose Paragon after getting 3 other quotes. Paragon did a fantastic job. Timely response to any and all questions. Showed up as promised on time. Crew was super professional and worked their butts off. Could not be happier. Job completed on time, on budget and it looks great. Would highly recommend Paragon.

Tim Haas October 25, 2022

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.

Nick Jelich October 13, 2022

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.

Trish Larson August 2, 2022

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.

Ryan Williams July 26, 2022

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.

Jay Blazek July 20, 2022

Jake was very responsive and professional. The installation crew did a great job and made sure everything was cleaned up before they left. We love the new roof!

Mike Ryan July 9, 2022

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.
