Every homeowner knows about homeowners insurance, but not
many know about home warranties. Floods and natural
disasters, while devastating, aren’t common. Homeowners are
more familiar with the feeling of being left without hot water for
their morning shower. And there is a vast difference between
home insurance and home warranty.
The analogy I like to use is the difference between auto insurance
and auto warranty. Everyone knows, if you have a wreck, to call
your auto insurance. Why don’t you call when your transmission
goes out? That is because the difference between car insurance
and car warranty are clearly defined. This isn’t the case when it
comes to home warranties.
Texas weather conditions can be tough on homes, both
mechanically and structurally. Homeowners insurance only
covers the structural components of the home, not mechanical.
So when your air conditioner goes out, insurance won’t help with
that repair. This is where home warranties come into play. Home
warranties cover the components that homeowners insurance
doesn’t cover. Household equipment such as water heaters,
dishwashers, air conditioners and so on are covered by home
warranties. These repairs can cost thousands of dollars not to
mention the inconvenience of going without. And take my word
for it, a full house without an air conditioner in the middle of a
hot Texas summer is no fun at all.
A home warranty is not a cover all. While home warranties
cover a lot, they do not cover everything so please make sure
and read the service contract thoroughly prior to purchasing.

exactly what is covered and what is not. Texas based and Texas
proud. For home warranties done the right way, please call us
