312 Months No Interest No Payment: For the first 12 months, there is no monthly payment required. This allows you to pay off the loan at the most convenient time for you within that 12 month timeframe. However, if you aren’t able to pay off the loan within 12 months, the monthly payment will be based on your loan interest rate (17.99% to 26.99%) and the remaining balance.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does my credit score affect roof financing?
As with any credit program, the better your credit score, the more likely it is that you’ll be approved for loan with a lower interest rate.
How quickly can I get a loan for my roof?
The approval process for a home improvement loan will vary from lender to lender, but many can now offer approvals in as little as 60 seconds, and some can make funds available in as little as one business day. Do not be surprised, however, if a lender requires slightly more time for approvals and it takes a week or more to make funds available.
How’s a home improvement loan different from a Home Equity loan?
The primary difference between a home improvement loan and a home equity loan is scale. Since a home improvement loan is an unsecured personal loan and can be processed relatively quickly, it’s usually used for smaller projects. A home equity loan often takes longer to process, is for a larger amount, a longer term, and will often offer a lower interest rate.
Is a home improvement loan better than a credit card?
A home improvement loan may offer a lower interest rate than a credit card, but that is not always the case. It’s best to research the terms and lending criteria of each option in order to choose the one that suits your financial priorities.
