Ohio Home Warranty

If you’re looking for extra protection for your home and budget, you can’t go wrong with the comprehensive home warranty plans from First American. Many Ohio residents have homeowners insurance, but it doesn’t cover appliance and home system breakdowns that can often set you back hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Using the services of an Ohio home warranty company like First American can offer you additional protection with coverage for your important home systems and appliances when they break down.

Homeowner?

If you’re a long-time homeowner, you may be wondering if a home warranty in Columbus or other parts of Ohio is really necessary. After all, your appliances have been working fine for many years, so why should you take out coverage now?

Well, the truth is that even if your refrigerator, heating system, or air conditioning is working perfectly right now, they will break down eventually, no matter how well you take care of them. When they do stop working, repairs can present an unexpected and unplanned cost—which is stressful for anyone, especially on short notice. What’s more, finding a qualified contractor at a reasonable price is a challenge that can cause plenty of inconveniences on its own.

Meanwhile, when you choose First American from the selection of home warranty companies in Ohio, you will always be just a phone call or website visit away from requesting help from a professional contractor.

Home Buyer?

Buying a home is the single biggest investment that most people will make in their lives. Therefore, it’s essential to take every step possible to minimize the risks involved and ensure that you don’t find any unpleasant surprises after finalizing the purchase.

That’s where a home buyers’ warranty makes so much sense. With Ohio home warranty plans from First American, when a covered item breaks in your new home, we’ll assign a contractor to diagnose and take care of the issue.

Home Seller?

If you’re putting a house on the market, a home warranty is also a smart investment. It not only protects your budget from costly repairs on covered items but it also reassures prospective buyers who will feel safer buying knowing that any covered breakdowns will be taken care of.

First American Reviews

Still not sure if a home warranty from First American is right for your home? Check out some of the positive experiences of our customers in the state of Ohio.

My microwave totally died. They had someone look at it, and decided it was better to have it replaced than repaired. All in all, it went pretty smoothly. I was worried that I would have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it done. But other than finding an installer, it was a great experience. I highly recommend them!

Geo of Huntsburg, OH

We have had First American Home Warranty for approximately 2 years. We have had 3 calls to them. One for our furnace, once for our central air (they completely replaced the unit) and one for a plumbing issue. First American was very curious and timely. We got our furnace fixed, our central air replaced and plumbing issue fixed with new faucets. The subcontractors that came to the house were very respectful, friendly and cleaned up completely after their service. I highly recommend 1st American.
