This specimen is most likely a Polistes sp. from the Vespidae-family. Some Polistes species are sometimes referred to as paper wasps.
Coloring is not the primary criterion for identification here. The folded wings leave no doubt that it is a wasp from the Vespidae family (which excludes the Great Black Wasp, as suggested in the comments). Since there is only one picture, with not many details, further identification gets more difficult here. Based on my experience, I would guess that it is a Polistes sp. (no way of saying which particular species it is, based on the photo) - this would also be consistent with your observation that they invade your house frequently: Polistes, besides Vespinae (e.g. Yellowjackets), are the only 2 social Vespidae subfamilies, i.e. they live in colonies. Also, Vespinae can be excluded, they have a visible edge at the beginning of their abdomen, which the wasp in your photo doesn't have. This would leave Polistes as the most plausible option.
A detailed view of the head, the legs and the unfolded wings would be necessary for a more specific identification - there are several 100 different Polistes species alone!
