WHY YOU SHOULD BE OFFERING BELGARD PREFERRED PAYMENT TO YOUR CUSTOMERS:
For several years, Belgard Authorized Contractors across the country have been setting themselves apart from local competition by offering homeowners a way to build now and pay later. The Belgard Preferred Payment financing program offers contractors a competitive edge that not only increases closure rates, but also works as an upselling tool that makes it more affordable for homeowners to build larger projects and avoid phased construction.
These benefits combine to mean more sales with better profit margins for the contractors who participate in the program. Belgard is excited to announce that the Belgard Preferred Program has evolved to include simplified enrollment and application processes, more rate options, and more payment options—making the BPP program an even more powerful sales tool than ever!

Rob Hirsch, Splendor Landscape Designs, Ltd. – Commack, NY
“I find that Belgard Preferred Payment works particularly well with selling big ticket items, like an outdoor kitchen. It also works well with clients who know they’re getting a bonus later in the year. They can build what they want now without having to wait or pull money from other resources. It gives the customer another reason not to say ‘no’.”
Amanda Cooper, Primary Grounds – Greenwood, IN
“I always present BPP as a way of keeping your money in your investments so it can gain more over the length of time. I would encourage all hardscape contractors to take advantage of this tool; it does increase the sale. Another thing to think about is that it simply sets you apart as a company because a lot of my competition do not have a financing option.”
Myra Norton, GreenState Landscaping – Lumberton, NC
“The program has helped us both increased the size of projects and close on jobs that we would have lost otherwise. I’ve never had an issue with getting my money after an install, and the payment comes pretty quickly. I wish all my jobs got paid as quickly.”
Sarah Rose, Black Diamond Paver Stones & Landscape, Inc. – Sacramento, CA
“Because of the financing options, we have customers who are able to do a full remodel (instead of in stages), leading to thousands of dollars in additional business. Having a financing program available opens the door for additional business opportunities during negotiations.”
Andrea Skoniecki, Patriot Landscape Design – North Myrtle Beach, SC
“Having a financing option lends credibility to our business. You can visibly see that when you hand the customer the brochure. It’s also comforting to know that we will definitely get 50 percent upfront and the balance when the job is done, even when the project grows – and it almost always grows. Adjusting the loan for any additions just takes a phone call.”
