Almost 30% of homeowners replaced windows as a stand-alone project or in conjunction with other repairs. Fifteen percent of homeowners replaced exterior doors, and all of those that replaced doors did so in conjunction with other projects like window replacement.

Customer Snapshot – The Coleman Family
Town of Salina shared on Facebook that it would utilize American Rescue Plan Act funding to partner with Home HeadQuarters to offer $15,000 home improvement loans at a 1% rate.
The family knew that their home needed some work, but they weren’t yet able to work out the financing through any traditional outlets. “Having the opportunity to apply for these funds at that 1% rate, it really expedited our timeline for getting these things done.”
The section of Liverpool that the family lives in was one of the last parts of the Town of Salina to go online for the program, so the family took the time to get prepared. By the time their home was eligible, they had already submitted all the necessary documentation.
As a result of the partnership between the Town of Salina and Home HeadQuarters, the home now has a new roof, new windows and a new entry door. “The process was super simple, the staff at Home HeadQuarters was incredibly responsive, and they did everything that they told us they would.”
