Home Details

Size, type and location of your home 

We offer home warranty coverage for the following property types:

  • Single-family homes
  • Duplexes, triplexes, and quadplexes

In addition to the type of home you have, the square footage of your home can affect warranty pricing and availability. Depending on where you live, your cost could also include state or local taxes.

Service Fee

The cost of requesting service

If you’ve never had a home warranty before, you might be unfamiliar with a Service Fee. But rest assured, it’s a standard cost that covers the time your Pro spends assessing the issue and figuring out how to fix it.

You get to choose your Service Fee amount when you purchase your home warranty plan.

Thinking about coverage?

Sounds like a plan. Find the warranty that fits you best.

A little coverage goes a long way

Without a home warranty, it can cost a lot to repair or replace the systems and appliances that you rely on to keep your home running smoothly.
