After receiving a very reasonable estimate, we hired DK Paragon to create a room in the top half of a two-story family room. Although we had a little trepidation because of prior experiences with contractors, we were impressed with Tom Kerschl from the start. He was knowledgeable, called or came by when he said he would, and was easy to work with. He, his crew, and his subcontractors were very professional, courteous, and cleaned the premises every day before leaving. As important as those are, the main aspect is that we were also impressed with their craftsmanship. It was evident throughout the process that our desires were important to them. They were flexible, even in the face of several changes made to the plans as the build evolved. The end results is that we love not only the room, but the quality of the construction. We would not hesitate to work with them again and HIGHLY recommend them to others.

As we all know – “its best to do business with people that do business with you” – at least that’s my motto. Our friends at DK Paragon were phenomenal to work with – on time, under budget, fair and easy to work with. I could not be happier and would gladly recommend them. They can do it all – a kitchen remodel was probably a smaller job comparatively speaking --- but they acted as if I was the top priority which was nice.

"DK Paragon Custom Builders just completed the “perfect” Outdoor Kitchen. Tom and Rodney listened to my ideas and successfully captured them, not only in the drawings, but most importantly in the finished product. The level of detail, craftsmanship, and professionalism that went into this project far exceeded my expectations. I will continue to recommend them to family and friends."

"Our home needed a new roof and the A/C system replaced. D K Paragon did an job with these repairs. They were very considerate of our needs, made sure to update us on the completeness of the project during the various steps, then were sure to clean up behind themselves when they were finished. The repairs to the ceilings were done so well you can't even tell where the repair was made. The best part of the whole job is: the price they quoted us is the price we paid at the end of the project. We'd recommend them for any job you need to have done!"
– Sheryl Hall
"We hired Tom, with DK Paragon, to construct an addition to our existing home. We knew what we wanted, but just weren't sure exactly how to go about a design. Tom created a design we knew we would be happy with, and then he and his team completed the project in a very professional and expedient fashion. We couldn't be happier with the end results. We feel like we have a new home and just love all the new space. We would definitely hire them again for future projects, and in fact we did. Very soon after the completion of our addition, we hired them again to build a beautiful pergola to enhance our backyard. The second project was completed within just a few days, and we can't wait for the warm weather to arrive, so we can sit outside and enjoy it. We highly recommend DK Paragon."

"They worked with our schedule. They were in and out so quickly that I did not realize the job was completed until they contacted us with a follow-up call (which was very professional and thorough). They even cleaned up the brick-face area where birds had gotten in to make a nest and made a complete mess. The project manager was very professional and upfront regarding the work that needed to be completed. The company's representative left me with a feeling that I had worked with true professionals unafraid of discussing the inner-workings of the trade for my personal homeowner benefit."
– John S. in Suffolk, VA
"Fixed a storm window and wood frame for me within 3 days of my request. Professional, friendly and was able to get the work done ahead of schedule. I highly recommend this builder."
– Steve D. in Norfolk, VA
"Paragon is definitely the place to call for your project needs. They handled all our repair needs in a matter of a few days all the way from the quote to the finished project. The work itself only took a day and finished project was better than I could have asked for. The workers were extremely professional and answered all the questioned I had. I already have other projects in mind and Paragon is the only company I will use and recommend to others."
– Jonathon W. in Chesapeake, VA
"I already hired them to do another project for me and as I continue to work on my home will have them back several more times."
– Devon N. in Suffolk, VA

"I was kept informed of each phase of the project, and they took pains to work with my schedule to get the job completed as quickly as possible. Thanks to their many years of experience, helpful suggestions and ideas, my new bathroom turned out better than I thought would be possible in such a small and irregular space."
– Marilynne B.
"We could tell right away Tom was the right guy for the job because he took the time to help us plan our dream/vision, which is probably the most important thing you will do on a venture like this. He also provided sound advice based on his vast experience to help us make good decisions about the scope and nature of the project. Then, he and his team turned it into a reality."
– Stuart and Jerry B.
"Elaine and I are extremely pleased with the work that Paragon performed in our back lawn. The pergola and walkway are first class. The project cost was fair. Your crew was courteous. There was absolutely no damage to the yard. Elaine and I would highly recommend your company to any potential clients."
– Larry and Elaine H.
"The total renovation to our house was completed in an expedient and highly professional manner. We were told that the house would be a quick sale due to the quality workmanship. Our house was only on the market for 38 days."
– Bill and Donna L.
"We’re pleased to report that Tom Kerschl and his team completed the demolition of the old deck and constructed the replacement deck on time, and on budget with excellent results. They exhibited good work ethic and craftsmanship as well as promptness in starting each morning at 07:00 and working full days to complete the job when promised. Tom was on-site each day for supervision of his crew as well as personally leading the design and construction himself."
– Bob and Mary – Virginia Beach
"Tom and Rodney have some of the best workers and sub contractors, I've ever met. They are so polite, kind and gentle natured, I will happily hire them to do any and all future jobs. I truly have a maintenance free house thanks to Tom at Paragon. He took my dream house and made it a lovely reality."
– Eleanor L.
"When considering a contractor I immediately thought of Tom as I have worked with him in the past and found him to be extremely skillful, thoughtful, and ladies…he cleans up after himself! He and Rodney are genuinely concerned with offering their customers the highest quality possible at a fair price."
– Mary-Anne P.
"Paragon Custom Builders came out to our office to perform some much needed repairs to our facility. They promptly came the same week contacted and provided excellent work. As with any repair job, the work entailed more time than originally thought but did the work for the quoted price. We were very pleased with the outcome of the repairs and highly recommend Paragon Custom Builders."
– Robert V. Compass Contracting, Inc.
"Paragon Custom Builders installed twelve replacement windows for us in the Spring of 2010. They were recommended by a local window supplier and we couldn't have been more pleased. They were reasonably priced, prompt, extremely tidy and did a high quality job. I absolutely would recommend them to my close personal friends."
– Larry and Cathy L.
"It is my pleasure to comment on this stellar company. Paragon Custom Builders recently completed a difficult construction job of obtaining, preparing and installing two over-sized mahogany doors for the front entrance to our co-op building. I investigated several independent contractors prior to selecting Paragon Custom Builders. The results were terrific. Construction was completed in a most professional manner, on time and with minimal disturbance to the owners of our building. Paragon Custom Builders is aggressive, stable, honest and genuinely thoughtful and considerate of others."

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Paragon Custom Builders. The renovation of the interior of our home was performed with professionalism, courtesy, experience, and attention to detail throughout every phase of the project. The project commenced on schedule, proceeded as expected and was finished on time. Words can not express my satisfaction with the end-product. The interior of my home was converted from its segmented, outdated and uneven walls and ceilings to a bright, open, welcoming, inviting home that purveys a sense of style, coordination and flow. The transformation well exceeded my expectations. I look forward to Paragon Custom Builders to complete my kitchen renovation in the near future."
– Anne P.

"We waited a long time to add a master bedroom addition because of contractor horror stories. Tom and Rodney of Paragon Custom Builders made our dream come true. They helped plan our project and provided us with the drawings. We received a work schedule which allowed us to know what work was to be done each day. Not only was the quality and craftsmanship of the finished product superb, the project was completed on schedule and within budget. We love our new master bedroom!! Thanks guys!!
