People discussing loans

Your home may be your largest personal investment, so we want to do our part to help you make needed repairs, remodel or add more space with an addition to your home. As your financial partner, we have home improvement financing options that can provide you with a peace of mind.

Dependent on the size, our home improvement loans can be secured or unsecured.

Carter Tip: Consider taking the following steps, or a version of these steps, so that you are prepared to make informed financial decisions regarding your home:

  • Get several estimates from contractors, or subcontractors if you plan to manage yourself, to determine projected expense and anticipated length of time to complete.
  • Use these estimates and timelines as a guide to budget and establish a schedule to pay off the loan.
  • Visit one of our branches to speak with an experienced banker to explore your options to fulfill your home improvement needs.
