Kurt Vanden Berg


Kurt began his building career in the late 1980’s working as a trim carpenter for home builders in the Chicago western suburbs.  In 1989, Kurt established Vanden Berg Woodworking and employed an impressively skilled team of trim carpenters and remodelers.  Vanden Berg Woodworking was highly sought by top custom homes builders in the western suburbs.  Precision, accuracy and quality were the benchmarks of Vanden Berg Woodworking and established their prominent reputation with builders, designers and architects.

Kurt closed his business in 2011 and began as a Project Manager for a custom home builder in Hinsdale, IL.  During this time, Kurt built several homes entailing impressive architectural complexities.  His ability to coordinate subcontractors, architects, regulating entities and involved home owners resulted in completed projects delivered on time, on budget and of the highest quality.

Kurt’s passion for the business has led him back to the entrepreneurial position of heading his own building company again.  Along with Gail Daly, Kurt has founded Paragon Homes, Inc. whose mission is to build exceptional homes and create a business where all three partners – client, subcontractor and general contractor – are satisfied at the completion of each project.
