ST. PAUL, Minn. — GE Consumer Finance’s Retail Sales Finance unit today announced a new multi-year partnership with Classic Metal Roofing Systems to provide its customers with installment and revolving financing options. The program was recently launched to Classic Metal Roofing’s authorized network of 66 independent dealers.

Classic Metal Roofing Systems provide consumers with an energy efficient, aluminum roof system that is guaranteed for as long as they live in their home. Under the agreement, GE Consumer Finance will offer both its revolving PROJECTLINE(SM) credit program and installment PROJECTLOAN(SM) financing product.

"With energy prices rising, we are excited to partner with Classic Metal Roofing Systems to make it easier for consumers to get a quality roofing product, as well as enjoy the cost savings that comes with the energy efficient materials they use," said Bruce Christensen, vice president of GE Consumer Finance’s Home Improvement division. "It’s a win for the dealer and an even bigger win for the consumer who wants to enhance the value of their home."

The PROJECTLOAN(SM) and PROJECTLINE(SM) financing programs give Classic Metal Roofing Systems’ dealers the ability to extend financing to qualifying homeowners. Over the past 15 years, GE Consumer Finance’s Home Improvement division has been an industry leader, providing more than $4 billion in home improvement financing to nearly half a million homeowners. Several thousand home improvement contractors nationwide offer GE financing to their customers.

Buyers can take advantage of GE’s fast and easy application process, competitive interest rates, flexible financing options and knowledgeable customer service support.

"A home is often the single biggest investment someone makes. Being able to offer our customers flexible financing enables more families to afford our roofing products and enjoy the maintenance free, safety and long-term savings of a durable roofing system," says Todd E. Miller, president of Classic Metal Roofing Systems.
