Types of Business Loans For Construction

Asset or Revenue-Based Financing

With asset-based financing, also known as invoice factoring—instead of waiting for clients to pay invoices—a funder purchases an invoice from the borrower at a discounted rate, which the business will then pay back to the funder as the business collects on the invoice. In contrast, revenue-based financing provides you a lump sum based on expected future revenue.


1-15 months

$1 million (revenue-based financing); $50 million (factoring)

Debt Financing

With debt financing, a fixed lump sum is disbursed up front to the borrower. Then the borrower repays the principal, plus interest, in regular, fixed payments over a certain period of time, which makes it easier to budget for. Online term loans come with fast approvals and funding time. An SBA loan could get you access to a lower interest rate because it is backed by the federal government.


6 months-25 years

$5 million

Line of Credit

A line of credit can be a helpful resource to have in place as a safety net while maintaining positive cash flow. It’s similar to a credit card in that you can borrow money only as you need it, instead of paying interest on a one-time lump sum right off the bat. A line of credit is ideal for emergency expenses and inconsistent cash flow issues.


6-24 months

Up to $250,000

Equipment Financing

Most construction companies require some type of physical equipment, making equipment financing a popular choice in the industry. If you lease, the financing uses the equipment as collateral, so you can avoid putting up other assets as collateral.


1-5 years

$5 million

The Complete Guide to Small Construction Business Loans


A construction business loan gives working capital to construction companies, whether the focus is on residential, commercial, or mixed-use projects. While there are no loan products specific to the construction industry, you can instead search for loan structures that make sense for your business model. Lendio helps you access multiple offers to find the best fit.


Each lender has its own criteria for financing approval. However, at Lendio, we have a few basic, minimum eligibility requirements in order to apply for a construction loan for business. First, the owner or primary applicant must have a personal credit score of at least 600. The company must also be in business for at least six months with a monthly revenue of $8,000.


Business construction loans can be used for almost anything, including:

  • Operating expenses, like payroll, rent, utilities, and insurance
  • Hard costs, like building materials, permanent fixtures, appliances, and landscaping

Check the details of your loan to see if real estate purchases, like land, are allowed before you move forward with a transaction.

When you need funding fast, a lending marketplace is a great option. The application is simple and quick, you have a marketplace of many lenders to compare and choose from and the support of a funding manager throughout the funding process.

An SBA loan is backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration, which encourages lenders to loan funds to businesses by offering an extra layer of financial security. For applicants, it means you may be able to access affordable financing even if you don’t qualify with a traditional bank. Rates are tied to the current prime rate and loan repayment terms are long. Plus, you may be able to qualify for larger loan amounts than an online lender or bank would normally offer.

Here are the three main types of SBA loans for construction companies to consider:

  • SBA 7(a) loan – Borrow up to $5 million for working capital, purchasing assets, or refinancing existing debt. You can also use the funds to acquire a competing construction company or buy out one of your current partners.  
  • SBA 504 loan Great for construction companies, a 504 loan can be used for assets like machinery, land, and buildings. 

SBA microloan Just starting to grow your construction business? A microloan lets you borrow up to $50,000 to help you scale.
