A roof replacement is a significant investment. Fortunately, homeowners have access to a wide range of financing options.
Here are the factors you should consider before choosing a financing option:
In finance, term refers to how long your loan will last. A shorter term means you’ll pay back the loan in high amounts over a short period of time while a longer term means you’ll make smaller payments over a longer period.
Homeowners with good credit scores can usually secure loans with low interest rates. However, there are other factors that can affect your loan interest rates. These include the type of loan, the bank you applied to and your overall financial profile.
If you’re planning a shingle roof replacement or roof renovation, make sure to keep an eye out for hidden fees, which quickly add up.
Some fees you might encounter are:
- Origination fee – This is a fee for taking out a loan and is usually paid at the start of the transaction. Keep in mind not all lenders charge an origination fee, so it’s best to ask your lender if they charge one.
- Late payment fee – As the name suggests, lenders charge this fee when you fail to make your payment after the payment date.
- Early repayment fee – Some lenders also charge an early repayment fee, which as the name suggests is charged when you make your monthly payment before the payment date.
If you want more flexible financing options for a new metal roof or roofing project, ask your contractor if they offer any financing options.
