What’s a Home Warranty?

A home warranty is a service contract, normally for one year, which helps protect home owners against the cost of unexpected covered repairs or replacement on their major systems and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear. Coverage is for systems and appliances in good working order at the start of the contract.

The home warranty policy will specify which of the following items are covered and whether the policy covers the full replacement cost of an item or not. The list below are some of the most common items covered.

·         Plumbing systems
