Decks are more popular than ever, combining fresh air, sunlight, and nature with the comfort and convenience of a partial room. Your deck contracting business can benefit from tapping into the huge market for decks of all sizes and kinds across the country.
Securing a partnership with a modern home improvement financing service helps you cater to new customers by making it far easier for them to afford a new deck. When you’re looking for a partner, there’s no reason to settle for one that doesn’t offer a full range of benefits and services.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Any equipment, service, installation costs or other project related to home improvement qualifies for financing. The following is a partial list of what PowerPay finances: HVAC equipment & installation, attic insulation, stone veneer, windows, siding, roofing, kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, cabinets, carpet, deck & patio, doors, fireplaces, garage doors, smart home equipment & installation, hardwood flooring, paint & wall coverings, hardscaping, landscaping, siding & exteriors, tile, stone & countertops, air conditioning & heating, gutters, spa & pool, home additions, deck building, tile installation, basement remodeling, custom cabinets, fence installation, lighting installation, garage building, cabinet installation, backsplash installation, electrical and plumbing and appliances.
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.
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 have no hidden contractors fees, credit cards or prepayment penalties. There are other important benefits for dealers:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There are several types of promotional loans. PowerPay offers two types. Same as Cash and 12 months and 24 months no payment promotions. First, PowerPay promotional loans are not credit cards. They are unsecured personal installment loans. The main difference between a credit card loan and PowerPay promotion is the interest rate once the promotion is over. In most credit card “teaser” promotions that rate, once the promotion ends, will be in excess of 29%. Our loans, once the promotion ends will be approximately 8.99% for 15 years with no prepayment penalties so customers can pay off whenever they like. We don’t like the credit card promotions because the fees are excessive and we’ve seen too many people get hit with accelerated payments and massive fees. It’s just unfair and most contractors don’t seem to care what the customer pays after they’ve completed their job.
With uncertainty in the economy and financial markets we believe that if a customer wants to use the promotion and then pay it over time, it should be at a fair and reasonable rate. Most contractors and dealers offer “teaser” promotions as a marketing tool but at the end of the day, only consumers will above-average credit qualify. PowerPay offers promotions for customers at many credit levels.
Our same as cash promotions essentially allow the customer to make a purchase and pay off the loan in equal monthly installments similar to how you purchase an iPhone. These programs are offered with the lowest fees in the industry. Ask your sales rep for more information.
