Wondering about how roof financing works?
Roofing loans have a big key advantage: you get access to the capital you need to get the roofing project done immediately. This becomes critical when an emergency happens and your roof needs replaced and you don't have the savings available to pay for it, you're stuck with a leaking roof. A leaking or damaged roof that's costing you more and more money in property damage as time goes on! Roof damage can be incredibly stressful situation, but quickly securing a roof loan when you need it can really take the sting out of the situation.
Before Getting a Roof Loan
Whenever you get financing for your roof, the final amount is always the exact amount for the total cost of the roof. While this means that you aren't going to have to worry about paying back more money than you need, it also means that getting the most accurate estimate for cost is incredibly important.
Very few homeowners stay on budget during home renovation. While roofing is less prone to overspending because of work order changes than other renovation projects like the kitchen or bathroom (imagine for example, you start renovating your kitchen and decide you want granite counter tops, which changes the budget), an improper estimate will lead to unaccounted for cost, which your loan won't cover because it wasn't budgeted appropriately. That means that you're on the hook for extra cost.
So when you're going for your new roof replacement with a loan make sure to take the extra time to go over with your estimator the options and materials you absolutely want, so that the project stays on budget without change-orders.
Check Your Homeowners Insurance's Roofing Policy
Consult your insurance policy. Many insurance policies cover damaged roofs and their cost of replacement and repair. Usually this is most common after an event like a bad storm, especially from hail and sleet or particularly harmful Nor'easters. Fire damage, fallen trees and other incidental "acts of God" are usually covered.
This is good news to most, because it's usually when an unexpected event happens that financing for a roof replacement is sought out and needed.
It's important to note however, that insurance will typically not cover "normal wear and tear" or problems that come as a result from improper or neglected roof maintenance.
And in other cases, your insurance may require a deductible before the roofing coverage comes into place, and if you do not have the cash on hand for that, partial financing is available.
Two Types of Roof Financing
Secured Home Equity Loan
If you have equity built up into your home, often the easiest type of loan is to seek a secured home equity loan for your roof replacement. This is also suitable if you have a longer time frame as approval can take 4-6 weeks.
- Take 4-6 weeks for approval on average
- Usually involve closing costs
- Could include prepayment costs for early pay-off
- Are tax deductible
Personal Roofing Loan
If your timeline is short and you need to have major repairs done to your roof, or have the entire re roofing done soon, then a personal loan might be the best roof financing choice for you. Personal loan approval is typically much faster.
- Do not require securing with your home (no home-risk for payments)
- Are not tax deductible
- Best suited for immediate need re-roofing projects
- Interest rates subject to credit scores
Check FHA 203(k) Loans
Other Roof Financing Options
Getting a secured home equity loan or an unsecured personal loan for your roofing project aren't the only options. New York State has FHA 203(k) government financing available for your roofing project, if your home qualifies.
What is an FHA 203(k) loan?
This is usually a loan that is an option during the home-buying process. In other words it's an incentive that gives buyers the advantage of "shopping for a property based on location and affordability."
New York State issues them to encourage buying of properties that can be renovated or restored within a short time of the home closing period. They're popular because it allows homebuyers to add costs of renovation, such as for re roofing, into one single mortgage payment, rather than having separate loans out.
