Great question! I would recommend giving one of our financial reps a call at 1-800-771-9960. They will be able to go over various options as well as walk you through everything you need to get started.
Best of luck with the home improvement project!
This probably isn't the response you are looking for, but if you can, it really would be better to put off the home improvement project until you can pay for it in cash. It is one thing to use a CC if you are trying to rack up miles or points or the like, but if you don't have the cash on hand to pay for something then you really can't afford it.
Good luck with the project!
