Renovate America offers two consumer financing options for home improvements: HERO financing and Benji financing.

How you pre-qualify: HERO financing approval is primarily based on your home’s equity and debt payment obligations. Only homes in PACE-approved municipalities may use HERO financing. Benji is primarily based on your credit score. 

Which home improvements are eligible: Nearly every type of home improvement project can be financed using Benji, and only energy-efficient, water-efficient or hurricane protection projects may qualify for HERO Program. Specific product eligibility varies by state.

How you pay back the financing: HERO is secured by your home and allows you to repay through your property taxes. Benji financing is paid back in traditional monthly payments. 

HERO is currently available in California, Florida, and Missouri. Benji is currently available in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. We are expanding to cover more communities.

Apply for Benji through a contractor who is part of the Renovate America network. Applications are accepted through the online application, mobile application or with the assistance of a Benji customer service representative. Contact a representative at 844-GO-BENJI.
