Owning a home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, so it's important to keep it protected. While there's never a good time to be hit with a huge repair bill, having a home warranty service agreement offers homeowners peace of mind by providing coverage, not provided by most homeowners' insurance, against mechanical failures for many major systems and appliances.
The benefits of a home warranty include:
Coverage: Home warranties typically cover major systems such as plumbing, electrical, heating, and air conditioning, as well as major appliances like refrigerators, ovens, and dishwashers.
Protection: When a covered item breaks down, homeowners contact the home warranty company to arrange for a service technician to assess and repair or replace the item. This can help save on repair or replacement costs.
Budgeting: Homeowners can budget more effectively with a home warranty, as they know that certain unexpected expenses related to home systems and appliances are covered.
Customizable Plans: Home warranty plans often come with different coverage options, allowing homeowners to choose the level of protection that best suits their needs and budget.
Renewable: Home warranties are typically renewable, allowing homeowners to extend their coverage beyond the initial term.
