Roof replacement is one of the most important jobs to do right. An aging or poorly installed roof can leak water and damage or destroy another part of the home, creating a need for extremely expensive repairs.
For this reason, partnership with a flexible and modern financing partner gives both your contracting business and your clients a major advantage in getting roof repairs or replacement done correctly, without the problems caused by doing just the bare minimum due to financial constraints.
Designed to instantly deliver approvals for home improvement loans, turnkey and hassle-free lending platforms help roofing contractors and homeowners get the job started quickly and easily. Having instant access to funds makes it simple to set up a contract to provide exactly the type of roof installation needed to get to work fast – without any hassle or negotiations.
Most Americans who opt for a roof replacement get a basic but effective asphalt shingle roof installed, at a national average of approximately $8,000. This price can vary up or down $1,000 to $2,000 depending on the region. This falls well within the range of loans offered by modern financing companies. It’s easier to persuade your clients to opt for this essential home improvement when they don’t need money up front and can spread the expense over several years.
With access to financing, contractors can successfully offer a greater range of roofing choices to meet homeowner needs. While standard asphalt shingles are a handy, effective material for constructing a roof, other options offer greater longevity, improved eco-friendliness, or enhanced aesthetics preferred by some homeowners. These include environmentally- sound rubber roofs (which can be up to 3 to 4 times the cost of asphalt roofing), metal roofs, and slate roofs.
While installation of the new roof is a major expense in any roofing project, complete removal of the old, worn-out, leaky roof can cost even more. Because tearing off older roofs often involves contact with and removal of asbestos materials, the stringent handling and disposal requirements create additional costs. Removal alone can cost $12,000 to $24,000, depending on roof size and the presence of hazardous materials. Well-chosen financing can cover this expense, so that the full replacement can move ahead without economizing on quality.
Yes, a quality lending partner makes choosing the preferred materials you and your customers want possible. If your contracting company is on the cutting edge of roof installation, you might offer rubber roof installation, possibly including TPO, EPDM, or PVC. EDPM roofing costs around the same as a standard roofing job, with an average installation of $7,500, making it fairly economical. It is an environmentally- friendly choice since it can be recycled after its 15-20 year lifespan. EPDM is black and may increase interior heat in sunny southwestern areas. TPO may be slightly more expensive but it’s white and sun-reflective, suiting it to hot climates. PVC is cheap, long-lasting, and very tough. Quality financing from a lending partner makes offering all new roofing types viable for your business.
Metal, clay, and slate roofs offer a handsome, distinctive look and have several advantages compared to a traditional asphalt shingle. One of their major benefits is that they are largely fireproof, making them a good choice for Southwestern and Pacific Coast locations close to the wildland-urban interface (WUI), where wildfires can be a risk. Metal roofs are lightweight and help keep the interior cooler, once again at an advantage in the same area wildfires occur. Their lifespan is 50 years or more if properly installed. Clay and slate roofs are heavy, requiring a strong house to support them, and also require considerable upkeep – though a maintained slate roof can last for centuries without replacement.
Using good finance makes these roofing materials accessible to many clients. An average sized stainless steel roof can cost $14,000 in materials alone, plus labor, while a copper roof can cost $25,000 or more. Slate can cost ten times as much as asphalt per square (100 square feet) in materials. Financing normalizes all these costs by spreading it over low monthly payments, which translates an expensive project into an affordable one.
If an existing shingle roof is still in good condition, dump fees and removal labor costs can be saved by installing new shingles or quality metal roofing over the top. However, this method can only be used once in most locations, with the majority of states or cities specifying that a roof cannot be covered for more than two layers of shingles in their regulations. There are other downsides as well, including adding a lot of weight to the building and the added cost when both sets of shingles eventually need to be torn out and replaced. No-hassle financing can help you persuade a client to contract for a full roof removal and installation, sparing themselves the future expense and aggravation that may come from the “shortcut” of covering an existing shingle roof.
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

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.
