Russ Noyes Roofing is an approved roofing contractor who can offer this alternative financing option. The financing can be used for multiple home improvements in addition to roofing that are considered energy efficient. This privately funded program allows you, the homeowner, to use the equity in your home to qualify you for a low interest fixed rate loan.

Why Should I Consider this Option?

In addition to this being a fixed rate low interest loan, this is an extremely easy process. There are no financials to submit and no out of pocket fees. Most homeowner need only need at least 10% equity in their home and are current on their taxes. This is a no money down financing option, making it easy to get started.

Once the project is completed, your payments go directly onto your monthly mortgage payment through your escrow account. You don’t even have to keep track of a separate bill! If you sell your home prior to paying off the home improvement, the balance of the loan transfers to the new property owner. You only pay for the benefit of the improvement you receive.
