Home Warranty

Home Warranties: Coverage That’s More Important Than Ever


A home warranty is a service contract that covers repair or replacement on many home system components and appliances. In today’s economic climate, a home warranty can give homeowners coverage against many unexpected repair or replacement expenses. A home warranty pays for the repair or replacement of many home system components and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear. This coverage is usually available for a single family home, condominium or townhouse, as well as a vacation home or multi-unit property.
