Financing Options

In order to make home improvements more manageable we have partnered with a few financers who offer PACE financing. Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) allows people to invest in energy efficient upgrades to their homes or businesses. These qualifying improvements can be anything from insulation to solar panels, or even improved lawn irrigation. To learn more give us a call at 866-210-6023 or click here to fill out our form.

What financing options does Renovate America offer to property owners?

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

What’s the difference between HERO and Benji?

How you get approved: Eligibility for HERO is based on factors including your home equity, household income, debt obligations, and the products you want to finance. These criteria may vary by jurisdiction. Residential properties with up to four units may be eligible. 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 the 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.

How do I apply for Benji Financing?

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 (844-462-3564)

Can anyone apply for HERO?

If you live in a city or county where HERO has been approved by the local government, you can apply for HERO financing. Most of the cities in Orange County and LA County are approved.


Ygrene started with a simple mission: improve the environment and strengthen communities by removing the barriers to financing energy efficiency home improvement projects. To get there, Ygrene Executive Chairman Dennis Hunter established a new system of financing that helped homeowners make improvements and reduce carbon emissions. Soon after, the Ygrene PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) program was born.

HQ Remodeling did an outstanding job on our guest bathroom and was able to finish the job in a timely manner. Michael was our Project Manager and worked within our budget to come up with a plan that worked for us. Eric was our Project Foreman and worked diligently, making sure our job stayed on schedule while maintaining a clean environment throughout the length of our remodel. The work quality HQ brings to the table was excellent.

Eli !! Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Eli the project was just wonderful and was a dream to work with.... We had to fire the old contractor we worked with ; they were so slow it took too long . Trying to get us to pay more . They helped us remodel our bathroom and it took less time than expected . In addition ; they were very reasonable financially. Solution oriented. Eli was very creative and follow up with us in the end. Best thing was that he came to fix a few things for free !!!

Reliable and honest company. They designed and remodeled my backyard and front patio. Demo the old fence and installed a new vinyl fence. I liked the customer service of Michael, the project manager and Eli the supervisor. The Forman Baltazar was also very professional and helpful. I will use them again for my future projects.

I highly recommend HQ for just about any remodel needs you have. I couldn't have been more content on the job Eric Bernal did on my backyard wall-mounted gas heater fairly complex but he figured it out did a great job at a good price. He's the best..

I highly recommend this company if you're looking into doing any kind of paving job. My backyard was in super rough shape for years and I had gotten quotes to redo it but every company I spoke to was either too expensive or were going to cut on the quality of the pavers used to fit my budget. When we had Michael come by from HQ remodeling we explained this to him and he gave me not only a better deal than all the other bids I had gotten, but he also agreed to use the higher quality more expensive pavers I had been wanting. The team started the next morning after our initial agreement and were done in less than a week. They were neat and tidy and cleaned everything after each day of work, and as far as construction goes were also quiet and undisruptive. This was my first major home improvement job and hearing horror stories from other people I was very nervous and inquisitive of everything they were doing. The team, and Micheal especially, were very patient and very responsive to every one of my messages and calls about my small worries. The owner also dropped by more than once to make sure we were happy and that everything was going as planned. Most importantly, the project itself turned out better than I could have ever imagined. My yard has a power pole in it and is built on a slope but they made it look so good I barely recognize it as the space it was before.
