When it comes to insulation financing, you are sure to have many questions. Pro is here with the answers.
Can you finance new insulation?
Absolutely! Insulation is a solid investment in your home’s comfort, longevity, and your budget. You can also count on insulation to raise the resale value! Often, the expected cost for new insulation causes homeowners to delay starting this kind of project. Thankfully, there are many financing options that can give you the new insulation that you need now.
How much does it cost to replace insulation in a house?
The cost of getting new insulation in your attic or walls is impacted by more than the cost of baffling. You have to consider prepping the area to be insulated, clean up, and the quality of materials used. For instance, insulating a small attic with fiberglass batts will cost less than sprayfoaming all the rim joists. The average insulation project in Michigan is estimated to cost between $1.69 – $15 per square foot.
Insulation Financing 101
Even though the thought of financing a project can make some homeowners cautious, these days it is common practice. A home improvement loan allows you to keep your home up to date, safe, and comfortable without without a large upfront investment. In fact, 80% of all projects that cost over $5,000 require financing! At Pro, our goal is to make getting financed a seamless part of your insulation project.
How much does it cost to finance an insulation project?
Any increase in cost due to financing depends on the type of loan you choose and how long you take to pay it off. With a same-as-cash loan, you do not pay any additional fees. With a traditional loan, a percentage of the total owed is added on top of the principle over time. This percentage is called the annual percentage rate (APR). The cost added by the APR will be factored into your monthly payments. The APR will vary between loans based on the credit history of the homeowner. Let’s explore the options that Pro Home Improvement can offer its insulation customers.
Same-As-Cash Insulation Loans
People will hear the words “Same-As-Cash Loan” and often wonder ‘How does that work?’ With this loan type, you are given a grace period. If the principle of the loan is paid off within this time frame, you pay zero interest! This is the best option for homeowners that would have no problem paying off the full amount of the project in under two years. This grace period is what makes the Same-As-Cash loan one of the most popular loan types. Pay off your insulation project within a couple of years, using easy to manage payments, and you won’t spend a penny more than what the project costs.
Term Lengths: 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 Months
Traditional Installment Insulation Loans
You may not be comfortable with a two-year time limit. Making the same-as-cash loan not the best option for you. This doesn’t mean we can’t figure out a way to make this project fit into your budget. This is when we would suggest a traditional installment loan type. Just because it is traditional, though, doesn’t mean it will have a high interest rate. We offer great reduced-interest loans that can empower you to fix up your home now and pay it off over the next 5-12 years.
Term Lengths: 5 – 12 Years
