The U.S. government-supported program that will finance your foundation project

Government-supported PACE programs are strengthening foundations and raising the value of California homes


Thinking about reinforcing or repairing your home's foundations? Well, there's an excellent opportunity out there for you and it's best you take advantage of it. Yes, PACE financing, the government-backed program, will pay for your foundation project, strengthen your home and increase the value of your property.

PACE financing

Property Assessed Clean Energy financing, or PACE as it's known, is a government-supported program for financing safety enhancements, energy efficiency measures and improvements on private property. PACE programs exist for both residential properties, referred to as R-PACE and commercial properties referred to as C-PACE.

Reinforced foundations with zero money down

Noted as one of the “top 20 world changing ideas” by the Scientific American magazine, the PACE program is an affordable and effective way of financing a range of residential upgrades that strengthen a property, save energy and increase home value.

As of 2017, hundreds of thousands of U.S. homeowners have invested $4 billion in energy efficiency measures, safety enhancements and other improvements to their homes using PACE financing. Foundation strengthening is one of the smartest ways to upgrade and enhance the safety of your home on offer. And of all states in the program, California leads the way in PACE recipients.

PACE offers the following advantages

  • Prequalification in under 30 minutes
  • 100% financing, 0 money down
  • No payments for up to 1 year or more
  • Evaluation based on your home's equity (minimum 10% equity stake by the owner is required)
  • Repay with your property taxes or mortgage repayment
  • No minimum FICO required
  • PACE funding makes it easier to qualify for environmental tax credits.
