Stonewater Roofing is now one of the first roofing companies in Texas to begin taking cryptocurrency as a form of payment. The innovative East Texas roofers are working with BitPay, the industry’s leading cryptocurrency processor, to accept transactions using Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Stellar, Monero and more.
“We pride ourselves on being innovators within the roofing and construction industry,” explained Stonewater Roofing CEO and founder Roland Browne. “From the initial process of setting up an appointment, through the actual roofing project, down to this final step of making a payment, we want everything to be simple for our customers. New technology contributes to that.”
The company had already been accepting online payments as part of its Remote Roofing program, which allows property owners to go through the roofing process with little to no direct contact with Stonewater Roofing personnel. This program also involves electronic documents, videoconferencing and online photo sharing — other technological advancements that Stonewater Roofing was quick to embrace.
In addition, Stonewater Roofing recently introduced Solar Solutions for those looking to cut the cost of their monthly electric bill from 60 percent to 100 percent. This is yet another innovative option that not all roofing companies are able to offer.
Cryptocurrency payment is an extension of these advancements. “It’s about giving our customers as many options as possible and breaking down any obstacles that may come between a property owner and the safety of a new roof,” Browne added. “When the crypto market is hot, and an early adopter has a lot of profit in their account, they might see that as a good opportunity to invest in the home, whereas a more steady cash income might be guarded more tightly to make payments at places where crypto is not yet accepted.”
Cryptocurrency is still in its infancy, and only a handful of major companies have adopted it as a form of payment in the United States. Those include Microsoft, Starbucks, The Home Depot, Whole Foods and Tesla.
Paying with cryptocurrency is simple for those who already have invested in the digital assets. Simply visit our Financing page and click the BitPay button to submit an outstanding payment. “We’re so proud to offer this new option to our customers,” said Browne, “as we continue to lead the way into the future of our industry.”
