Iowa Home Warranty

If you're like most people in Iowa, your home is the most valuable asset you own. For this reason, making sure that it is protected is a top priority for homeowners.

While homeowners insurance provides some security, it doesn't protect your home systems or appliances when they break. Problems with these items can often cost hundreds to thousands of dollars to fix or replace, which can put a huge strain on your budget. With an Iowa home warranty plan from First American you can rest assured knowing that your covered appliances and home systems can be repaired or replaced when they break down. In most cases, all you may pay is a low, fixed service fee for the visit.

Choose Your Payment Option

Select a monthly or annual payment option, and secure your coverage immediately. You won’t be charged for a full 30 days. There’s also no inspection required to receive your warranty, and no age limit on the covered items, provided they are in safe working order when coverage begins.

A Contractor is Assigned

Your coverage becomes active when we receive your payment. Then, when a covered item fails, you’ll know that you can call or go online 24/7 to request service. We’ll assign a contractor to diagnose the issue and repair or replace the item. It’s that easy.

My needs were assessed promptly and I was informed of process for the repairs. I was given a timeline for completion and how to contact provider if not contacted by them first. They were very understanding to contact someone who could let them in my home.
