What is a Home Warranty?

Most people that own a house understand the benefits of taking out a homeowners insurance policy. Still, not everyone realizes that your homeowners insurance may not provide complete protection for your home and it doesn’t cover when appliances and home systems break down because of normal wear and tear. That is where a home warranty comes in. It can provide a more complete level of protection for your home and your budget.

When your refrigerator, dishwasher, or heating system breaks down, not only will you have to scramble to quickly find a contractor, but you could also end up paying hundreds or thousands of dollars for the repairs.

However, when you choose the services of reputable home warranty companies in Maryland like First American, you can rest assured that when a covered item breaks, you'll be just a phone call away from receiving professional help.

An MD home warranty is a comprehensive protection package for your home appliances and systems. When a covered item stops working, you can just call us or go online 24/7, and we'll set assign a contractor who specializes in diagnosing the kinds of issues you’re experiencing. The contractor will contact you to schedule an appointment where they’ll diagnose the problem. If the problem can be fixed, many times the technician can make the repair that day. If it can’t be repaired, we’ll replace it.

For buyers, a home warranty helps protect a potentially stretched budget after a home purchase. If a covered appliance or home systems breaks, you’ve got financial protection and a simple solution to get the item repaired or replaced.

Trust First American

At first glance, many of the Maryland home warranty companies may seem similar, covering most of the same appliances and providing the basic service of repairs or replacement.

First American Reviews

First American is one of the best home warranty companies in Maryland, not just because we have an extensive network of contractors, comprehensive plans, and a simple process. We also have a proven track record of meeting and exceeding customer expectations. Here are some of our Maryland home warranty reviews:

I'm in the business of seeing warranty programs all the time. I do mortgages so a lot of times at the closing table, Realtors give packages to borrowers and things. I knew of all the different names so I just looked at all the different ones and weighed out who I thought was the better of all of them. I liked the amount that First American covers and the price that they do to cover them. They're more detailed in the house than just your refrigerator, your washer, and your dryer. They talk to you about the springs of your garage, the knobs on your appliances, and things like that which other companies overlook

Things have been great with First American Home Warranty. I filed a claim for my refrigerator that stopped cooling and their tech came and changed out something. He fixed it all in one day."
