The jobs that plumbing contractors take on are some of the most varied in home renovation and repair. While small jobs can average $300-$350 the larger and more profitable projects go much more smoothly when contractors work with a quality, modern financing partner.
A strong financing partner who can instantly deliver approvals for up to $100,000 ensures that you can quickly and easily offer the highest quality materials and installation to your customers. Using financing, your customers wont need to pinch pennies or cut corners, greatly lengthening the plumbing’s lifespan and eliminating the risk of leaks.
Installing major bathroom fixtures is one of the more profitable plumbing tasks your company might undertake. Installing new plumbing can cost $1,500 or more, a new shower anywhere from $1,200 to $5,500, a bathtub from $1,000 to $5,000, and upgrading to a tankless water heater to supply those bathing facilities can go up to $3,000. Backed by a high-quality finance partner ready to fund any project of $1,500 or more, installing any combination of these features is easily within reach for any homeowner.
Plumbing tends to be expensive precisely because it needs a lot of skill, knowledge, licensing, and patience to be successful. Supported by a quality financing partner that offers good terms, you can win more clients by eliminating the need to make large up-front payments, instead offering the option to pay for projects in a low monthly fee. This allows your clients to obtain a premier job from your contracting business, without having to sacrifice quality.
A good source of new plumbing projects consists of word-of-mouth referrals, since practically anyone for whom you complete a plumbing contract will know someone else in need of plumbing work. The quality work you can do with financing, plus the painless, instant-approval application process, makes clients that much more likely to send referrals your way.
Whole-house water filtration systems are increasingly popular as a way to filter out chemicals, chlorine, heavy metals, and natural contaminants. Several of the options cost less than the $3,500 minimum loan amount from modern financing sources and thus won’t qualify unless they’re included in a larger plumbing project. Some filtration systems and their costs include:
One final type is the reverse osmosis system, which uses a membrane to block purify water, producing excellent taste and removing even the most stubborn toxins. A 400-to-500 gallon per day high-quality reverse osmosis system, can easily exceed $5,000. Financing can help clients pay for one of the most advanced, thorough filtration systems available today.
Installing a sump pump to prevent flooding and similar purposes is usually cheap enough not to require financing, with a national average around $1,200. Many factors can potentially push this higher, however. If the complete system, including the pump, drains, drain tiles, basin, and pipework needs to be installed, the price typically comes in higher, at $2,500 to $6,000. With very large basements or areas that require multiple sump pumps and extensive, complicated pipework, the cost can be anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000, or higher. In these instances, readily available low-cost financing supports a full installation that will prevent mold, mildew, and other moisture-related problems.
Unlike installing a bathtub, shower, or toilet, full sump pump installation could require you to subcontract to other specialized contractors. An electrician may be needed to complete wiring work for the sump pump system, while other specialists might be needed for certain parts of the installation, such as excavating for exterior drainage features. If these expenses can be included as part of the main project, however, the same loan can be used to cover the whole job’s cost, and not just specific parts. With a modern financing company that cuts out contractor fees, you will get 100% of the job’s cost on installation and can easily and completely pay any needed subcontractors their share.
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.
