Ways that Financing Boosts Your Deck Contracting

By offering financing, you can translate expensive home improvements into low monthly fees. This keeps your customers from compromising on the deck they always wanted – in fact, it can help them to upgrade to a deck that they never thought would be possible. Using financing, contractors can close more projects that are worth more money, which helps them to grow their business.

Decks are an Immensely Popular Home Addition

More than 50% of new houses built in 2019 featured decks. This shows how high the demand for these structures has risen. While the people who purchase these houses likely won’t need another deck built for years, the fact that home builders include a deck in the majority of their designs indicates their popularity. Handy, headache-free financing lets you tap into the demand for decks throughout the country.

Solid Financial Backing Opens Up the Full Range of Deck Options

Decks come in a huge range of sizes and potential materials. Each combination of area and construction material (pressure-treated wood, redwood, cedar, composite, etc.) offers advantages and disadvantages. A financing partner helps greatly in making your customer’s dollar go further. You can keep more options on the table, including higher-end deck builds, leading to more satisfied customers and quality decks.

Financing Lets You do a Thorough Job with Deck Construction

Modern financing services makes it much easier to upsell additional deck features. A roof, deck enclosure, or sunroom improves the year-round comfort of a deck, while a roof in particular helps reduce weathering. With these additions costing just a few extra dollars a month rather than a large up-front investment, homeowners are more likely to want them – and potentially raise your word-of-mouth reputation and referrals after they discover how practical these improvements are.

Deck Contracting Finance FAQ

What Kinds of People are Most Likely to Get Decks?

Many people looking to add a deck to their house are older homeowners. These people generally have experience in deck ownership, meaning that they understand the need for a deck that not only looks good, but lasts. Selling more expensive, but long-lasting and maintenance-free decks to this demographic is often easier than might be the case with other home renovation services. As older individuals, they may also find upkeep and repair more difficult, making them more willing to pay for a low-care or care-free composite or aluminum deck. A good financing partner will help to overcome any lingering resistance they have to hire your company to build one of the more costly, high-quality decks.

Is Financing Useful for Refinishing a Deck?

That depends on how much work is required in the refinishing process. If it’s necessary to clean the deck, strip existing stain or paint, sand the whole deck surface, then apply paint or stain and sealant, costs can rise to $6,000 or $7,500 for larger decks making financing a useful source for refinishing.

Why should I offer financing?

50% of all home improvement investments over $5,000 are financed. Additionally, over 30% of all homeowners research financing options before making a home improvement purchase. Offering financing enables you to close more sales and earn more money on every job. By translating a large, expensive home improvement into a low monthly payment, you’re less likely to lose sales because of pricing, and you’re less likely to see customers haggling with you over costs. Quite simply, offering financing can help you to grow your business.

Why do dealers and contractors choose PowerPay?

We were founded by a home improvement professional who knows firsthand the power of financing as well as the damage fees can do to your bottom line and your customers’ pocketbooks. The average contractor pays 7.5% in fees on every financed home improvement project. That’s why we eliminated all unnecessary fees, coverage charge and penalties.

PowerPay also offers the longest payment options – up to 15 years. Our rates start at 8.99% and we can offer up to $100,000 loans with staged funding for qualified contractors.

How do customers pay me and what’s my risk?

Customers don’t pay you. PowerPay will direct deposit funds into your account via ACH within 48-hours after the install. You keep 100% of the funds, and your payment is guaranteed when you complete the project. It’s simple, fast and easy. No more collection calls and chasing clients for payments.

How does PowerPay work?

By using PowerPay, you are giving your customers options to pay for home improvements with financing.  Your customer will apply online using our online application form and a decision is generated in seconds.  Once approved, you can complete the transaction with your customer from our easy-to-use portal.  Electronic documents will be sent via email and your customer can sign electronically – we are fully paperless.  Your customer won’t get any bills for a month or so after installation.  You will get paid by PowerPay in full after the installation is complete.

How do I offer PowerPay to my customers?

There are a number of ways to offer PowerPay to your customers:

First, your clients can apply at GetPowerPay.com
Second, we can supply you with a link or button for you to add on your website.
Third, customers can apply by contacting our call center and using your dealer/contractor ID.
Finally, your salespeople can provide a link to apply or use a tablet with our application form during in-person visits.

Who is the lender?

While other finance companies serve as “middlemen” and take fees from you for allowing you to offer financing to your customers, PowerPay does not act as a middleman or lead generator. That’s why we are able to not charge any fees.  We have funding commitments for $15 billion.  Every borrower is approved through our systems and all loans are processed through our system. That means that we control the rate and loan term, and service every loan.

How complicated and time consuming is set up?

With PowerPay, enrollment is through a simple form that takes 2 minutes.  After that, our team will train and onboard you or your salespeople at no cost at a time that’s convenient for you.  Our process is so simple that training takes less than 30 minutes.  We can have you up and running and writing loans in one day.

Why don’t you offer “No-No” loans?

A “No-No” loan is also known as a deferred-interest credit card loan.  We don’t offer teaser loans for a few reasons.  Studies show that most customers that qualify for these loans can afford to pay cash for the home improvement.  So, by offering these loans, you are paying an average 10% in bank fees, and either eating the cost of the loan or passing it on to your customer.  This doesn’t make sense.  The main reason to offer financing is to help the customers that cannot afford to pay cash for a home improvement.  Deferred-interest credit card promotions don’t help customers that need it because the payments are much higher and if they are late or miss a payment, they’re hit with heavy penalties and an acceleration of the interest payments.  Rates can be as high as 30%.

We don’t believe in these loans.  We offer a fair, low-interest rate with 5-, 10-, and 15-year options so your customer can get the lowest payment possible.  A low monthly payment with no fees ensures that everyone is happy—both you, and your customer.
