This procedure will save you time and money and also give you peace of mind that the workers have been vetted by Select Home Warranty which will guarantee that your problem will be solved quickly and efficiently.
A homeowner’s service contract is different from a household insurance policy. Whereas the latter covers your home and contents against natural disasters, fire, and theft, the service contract is your best defense against sudden breakdowns of services and appliances in your home. The additional cover offered by Select Home Warranty will keep you confident that you have covered all your bases in case of unexpected breakages and malfunctions. A warranty from Select also helps provide protection during and after a home purchase or sale as the warranty is transferrable. Warranties are also renewable annually and Select will inform you of your choices for renewal.
As long as your systems and appliances are in good working order it does not matter how old they are. The requirement is for the items to be functional at the time of purchasing the warranty. Select covers all types and models of appliances and services.
