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. Annual roofing inspections become even more important if the home or building you own is occupied by tenants that may or may not be as attentive to your property as you (or us) would be. 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.


We couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Paragon Exteriors! They recently replaced our roof and gutters, and the results are outstanding—truly professional workmanship that has transformed the appearance of our home. Jake's communication throughout the project was exemplary. He was always available to address our questions and concerns, which gave us great peace of mind. His crew was equally impressive, completing the job with precision and leaving our property immaculate after the work was done. We wholeheartedly recommend Paragon Exteriors to anyone seeking top-notch roofing and exterior services. Thank you, Paragon Exteriors, for a job well done!

Excellent company to work with - Excellent customer service and the crew was outstanding!!! They respected our property and made sure everything was cleaned up.

Jodi Politowski June 18, 2024

I have been very impressed and extremely satisfied with Paragon Exteriors and Jake Gast the owner. I had three quotes to do my roof in 2022. Jake and Paragon was the only company that said I could get by for awhile if I had a small caulking job done, which would give me some additional time to better budget for the re-roof job. Jake caulked the potential leak area at no charge and said to give him a call when I was ready to move forward. Paragon's quote was the best of the three that I received. I also liked the product and warranty that was offered. Fast forward (2 years later) to 2024, I gave Jake a call and told him I was ready to proceed. The Paragon team showed up at my home on the scheduled day, immediately got to work and did an excellent job protecting my house and property while doing the tear off of the old shingles. They were hard working, efficient, courteous and did an awesome job of installing the new roof and cleaning up on a relatively windy day. They worked till the sun went down and I couldn't believe that they finished the entire job in one day. The new roof looks great and I am extremely happy with the job that was done, and I highly recommend Jake and Paragon.

John Warczak April 28, 2024

Paragon was great to work with start to finish! They came out to review our roof after a hail storm. Jake helped me work with our insurance to make sure the claim was complete. They were able to replace our roof less than 1 Month after our claim approval. The crew that came to work was great! The yard was cleaner after they left vs before the work was completed. Everyone was very professional. The entire process went smooth. In the end our roof looks amazing and we got some cool drone pictures of our house to save!!

Cyndi REIBER March 19, 2024

Paragon was wonderful to work with. Great communication, responsive to inquiries, and professional installation. Highly recommend.

Caray Funk October 31, 2023

Paragon Exteriors did a great job on our roof. Jake was very responsive and a effect communicator. I will gladly return for our future roofing needs.

Doug Lyman October 18, 2023

It was a pleasure doing business with Paragon Exteriors. The company made our unfortunate situation much less stressful. From the first phone call that I made to see about having someone come to give us an estimate, to the last phone call when I wanted to thank them, they have been wonderful. First of all, I always spoke to a person, and any concerns were addressed immediately. Second, they always showed up on time for appointments and when work was scheduled to start. Third, their professional opinion on color selection was amazing. We've received many compliments on our new roof, and that's thanks to Tim. A special shout-out to Tim Montgomery. He was extremely helpful every step of the way. He not only helped us with the selection process, but he also helped us navigate through the insurance process. Lastly, the crew that put on the roof and gutters were prompt, professional, courteous, and left the outside in immaculate condition. I highly recommend Paragon Exteriors and thank them for a job well done.

Lynelle Lund May 26, 2023

Paragon was professional from the start to finish. They had the lowest bid and dealing with them is a pleasure, as they did not try to up-sell us something we didn't need, as one of the other quoting companies did. The installation was fast and quality. Except for cleanup, finished in one day on our large house. The roof looks great and we are very happy!

Richard Zawada May 24, 2023

Jake was helpful and communicative throughout the entire process. He even took on a woodworking trim project to fix a rotted fascia board. Very happy with what was effectively a 1 day roof replacement. Love the color and new ridge vents!

Michael Riek May 18, 2023

Paragon communicated well about when they would be on site and the team did arrive on time and completed my roof replacement in the same day. The cleaned up the yard amazing after they completed the install. It was a great experience and they are competitively priced. I recommend Paragon for a roof install!

Jeannie Zukauskas April 29, 2023

I heard great things about the work Paragon Exteriors has done for other Waukesha area homeowners. I needed to see for myself. The work performed on my roof on April 14, 2023 was excellent. Jake, the owner, sent a large crew to my home. They started and completed the project in one day... as promised! His crew protected all of our planting beds and bushes during the peel off of the old roof. The clean-up was thorough. I will recommend Paragon Exteriors to my neighbors and friends!

Bill Jansen April 20, 2023

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.
