Design Process Overview

A full-service general contractor, Paragon Building Group offers complete building solutions for your home. We were founded on the principles of hard work, honesty and exceptional client service – core values reflected in every stage of our design+build process.


Before we get started on the implementation of your project, our designer will meet with you to help you identify your design options based on your individual needs and budget. Design continues once you are comfortable with the established budget and scope of work.

For remodeling projects, Paragon will create drawings showing your current spaces and indicating how your new and remodeled areas will work together. If the exterior of your home is affected, elevation drawings will be produced to better explain the aesthetic and functional impact.

All the necessary structural notes and details are used to produce working drawings or blueprints, which are submitted by our architect to secure the necessary regulatory permits. While these documents are being prepared, we will be addressing the pre-construction (or pre-engineering) details.


You will be introduced to Paragon’s production coordinator and project foreman before we get started on the engineering portion of your project. At this point, scheduling and security issues will be addressed. Our production team will also assist you in this stage with the selection of building materials and finishes, taking advantage of our network of showrooms and suppliers so you can make the best choices for you and your budget.


Paragon’s production team will be focused on making the construction process as “painless” for you as possible. For remodeling projects, we will protect your existing finishes and isolate the construction area from the rest of your house.

Our project foreman will be on the job daily, from start to finish, and will coordinate with our team of subcontractors and suppliers to keep your project progressing smoothly. You will also be updated regularly on project costs as well as regular budget updates. Our ultimate goal: to get you into your new space as quickly as possible.

As construction comes to an end, we will walk through the completed new construction or remodeling project together to make sure all details meet your satisfaction. Once all the permits have been signed, we will turn the completed project over to you and our warranty will kick in.


Our one-year unconditional warranty guarantees your continued satisfaction. However, we typically service our projects beyond this time frame and also assist in dealing with the extended limited warranties provided by material suppliers and subcontractors in an effort to guarantee you the highest return on your investment.
