Home Warranty Plans
Sooner or later, the systems and major appliances in your home will need repair. When they do, your homeowners policy will not cover the repairs that occur from normal "wear and tear." Enhance the protection of your homeowners insurance with a AAA Approved Home Warranty Plan.
These areas are serviced by Old Republic Home Protection.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a home warranty?
The standard home warranty is a one year service contract that protects a resale home buyer or current homeowner against the cost of unexpected repairs or replacement of major systems and appliances that break down due to normal usage. Coverage is also available to home sellers during the listing and escrow period to help them prevent unforeseen breakdowns from potentially tying up the closing.
Q: How can a home warranty help me?
Old Republic Home Protection offers peace of mind, convenience, budget protection, and easy, dependable service. No more "searching The Real Yellow Pages for a reputable repairman. No more "hassles" over the cost of repairs. No more "budget busting" repair bills.
Q: Does Old Republic Home Protection require an inspection?
No. Inspections are required by some home warranty companies, but not by Old Republic Home Protection.
Q: Can I buy a warranty from the manufacturer rather than a home warranty company?
Yes. But it would probably cost you more because you would have to buy a warranty for each item you wanted to cover. And chances are good you still wouldn't be covering your major home systems such as plumbing, electrical, heating, etc.--items all included in the Old Republic Home Protection Plan. This means: only one plan, one low premium, and one number to call for service.
Q: What is the difference between my homeowner insurance policy and a home warranty plan?
Old Republic Home Protection's one year home warranty covers items not normally covered under the standard homeowner policy--filling a critical gap in the protection of your home.
For example, if your dishwasher leaks and water damages the floor, your homeowner's insurance may cover damage to the floor, but not the repair or replacement of the dishwasher. Old Republic Home Protection does.
Q: Do home warranty plans cover major appliance or system replacement?
Yes. You may already have warranties on individual items in your home. Check these warranties carefully as they may only cover parts and/or labor. With Old Republic Home Protection, parts, labor, and system replacement are all covered. Please review our plan for complete coverage terms & conditions.
Q: Are one year home warranty plans available on all homes?
Yes. You can obtain coverage regardless of the age of your home. Our warranty plan covers homes up to 5000 square feet, depending upon the plan selected. Homes beyond this size require a special quote.
