Whether it’s a new kitchen, bathroom remodel, room addition, backyard makeover or fixing the roof, we all have a vision for how we want our house to look like. The problem is that most home renovation projects are quite expensive, and it’s really hard to save up for the new kitchen you wanted.

Fortunately, there are many ways to get financial help with your project. Companies like Hero, Ygrene or Benji are offering up to 100% financing on qualified home improvement projects. The question is then, what are the qualified projects?
