Wade Tutt, CPCU

Wade Tutt has been in the construction and restoration industry since 1999. He started his career in residential new construction and soon thereafter developed a passion for blueprint takeoffs and estimating. Wade served as an estimator, consultant and project manager with a team that built hundreds of residential and commercial buildings in the early 2000s. Wade’s expertise at deciphering complex drawings transferred to increase his knowledge of on-site construction methods.

Wade spent the following eight years as a residential and commercial materials expert in fields like roofing, framing and building envelope weatherization.


Wade began applying his construction expertise as the General Manager of one of the largest roofing companies in the Midwest. He oversaw a team of 40+ employees and in that time supervised the successful installation of over 3000 roofs. Wade’s particular specialty is in commercial roofing materials and applications. He has a unique mix of experience in roofing materials, applications and a vast knowledge of insurance policy coverage application. With those skills, Wade can accurately assess the damage that many buildings sustain and immediately understand the coverage that should be applied.


Wade co-founded Paramount Loss Consulting, a National Large Loss Consulting and Adjusting firm with offices across the country. Paramount built a team of coverage and construction experts that have been operating in the first party loss insurance industry for decades.


In 2019 Wade shut down Paramount as part of an industry consolidation and later that same year started a Commercial Multi-Family division for Restoration Builders Illinois. In 2020, their first full year, Wade’s team sold and built

$8,000,000 in commercial and multifamily roofing and construction projects. Currently, Wade is the Managing Director of Restoration Builders Dallas.
