We have been providing home warranty plans and services for homeowners since 1992 – that’s over 25 years of experience! Our plans are designed to help protect your budget and your home’s vital systems, lines and appliances from unexpected and costly breakdowns.
What is a home warranty?
A home warranty helps to protect your family’s household budget from unexpected repair costs resulting from system breakdowns or failures. When enrolled in a home warranty plan, the repair and replacement fees for covered systems, lines or appliances are handled up to the plan’s annual coverage limit.
A home warranty plan is offered by a company, and a homeowner will pay a certain amount each month, or yearly, for the coverage desired. When a covered problem occurs with an item, a homeowner can simply call the company for help with the problem.
Home warranties are available for a variety of items in your home, including laundry and kitchen appliances, air conditioners, furnaces, boilers, water and sewer lines and more.
How does a home warranty differ from homeowners insurance?
A home warranty is NOT the same as homeowners insurance. You cannot use a warranty plan in place of your homeowners insurance. However, it is a smart idea to have both homeowners insurance and a home warranty plan.
Homeowners insurance will generally protect your property in case damage is incurred from weather conditions, fires, break-ins, floods and other situations as stated in your policy. This type of home repair insurance is generally required by any bank offering you a mortgage for your home.
Home warranty plans are NOT mandatory with your mortgage lender, but they can sure help your family’s household budget.
These plans can provide you with comprehensive repair and maintenance coverage for damage due to normal wear and tear for your home’s major systems, lines and appliances, including the following:
Washing machines and dryers
Refrigerators, including the ice maker
Cooktops, ranges, ovens, stoves, etc.
Built-in microwave ovens
Outside water and sewer lines
Other systems, lines and appliances dictated from your particular plan
How much does a home warranty cost?
The cost of a home warranty varies depending on a variety of factors, including the home warranty company used to enroll in the plan(s), which items are covered in the plan(s), and how much coverage you choose to have for each covered item.
The amount you could save on repair or maintenance work with your home warranty plan can vary depending on what plan(s) you are enrolled in, and the particular circumstances with your situation.
Here’s a great example of how much money could possibly be saved with a home warranty plan:
Consider how much it could potentially cost if you have a problem with the water or sewer lines around your home. Many homeowners don’t realize that they may actually be responsible for any damages to the underground lines spanning from the home to the street.

New construction home warranty
Did you just buy or build a brand new home? That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider enrolling in a home warranty plan. In addition to repair services, we also offer a variety of maintenance plans to help with keeping your home’s systems running efficiently for years to come.
Home warranties for older homes
As your home gets older, your water and sewer lines, heating and cooling systems, and kitchen and laundry room appliances are naturally going to start experiencing issues with wear and tear. While you may not have any problems with these systems and appliances in your home right now, it’s better to be safe than sorry. The time you have a problem is the wrong time to discover that you don’t have the home warranty coverage you need!
Be proactive about enrolling in a home protection plan now before your home has any breakdowns. With most of our repair plans, coverage does not begin until 30 days after your enrollment is approved, so it’s important to think ahead and get the coverage you need before you need it!
Regardless of whether you live in a classic house like a Queen Anne-style Victorian, or a newer and more modern residence, you may be eligible to enroll in home protection plans from us.
