  • Home Repair Loans

    Keeping your home in good repair is a smart investment for you and your family. Home repair loans may be used to purchase or fix a furnace, replace a roof, improve energy efficiency, install new windows or complete other eligible improvement projects. The home to be repaired must be the borrower’s primary residence. The borrower will be required to provide at least two written estimates from a contractor for the costs of the repairs and improvements.
