Texas Home Warranty
Protecting your home is a point of pride for any true Texan. But while homeowners insurance provides a good basis, it doesn't actually cover everything, and the coverage probably won't include your appliances, air conditioner, electrical, and plumbing system.
Luckily, a First American Texas home warranty can help: we'll provide you with comprehensive coverage that's customized to fit your individual needs.

How Texas Home Warranties Work
There are many home warranty companies in Texas, but few can offer a process that is as simple as purchasing a home warranty from First American:
First, get a quote for the type of appliances and household systems you want to cover. Choose the Basic plan to cover essential home appliances, or the Premier plan to also protect your home's heating, plumbing, electrical systems, and more. Add optional coverage for items such as central air or a pool to ensure your home is fully protected.
Next, secure your quote with a credit card and select your preferred billing date. We understand that everyone’s needs are different, so we offer monthly and annual payment options for your convenience.
Lastly, confirm and finalize your coverage plan and payment options. There’s no upfront charge to do this. Your monthly or annual payment does not hit your credit card for a full 30 days. And you can always change your mind during that time, no questions asked.

The lady I bought the house from already had First American, and I've been with them now for three years. I submitted my claims to them over the phone which was easy to do and my experiences with their reps were pretty good. When I had a problem with my microwave, their tech had to come back out a couple of times for it but he was good. I would recommend First American.
Long story short, the vendors that First American Home Warranty uses are top-notch. After making these two claims, and having them completed with still working status, I feel completely comfortable with my choice of going with First American. There is no doubt in my mind that I will continue my relationship with First American Home Warranty when the time comes.
