The Final Words

If you have ever purchased a home warranty, or even if you just started googling ‘home warranty insurance near me’, you very well know that it is not an easy task to find a good company that meets your requirements for the coverage of home systems and appliances in your house. In almost every state, there is a good selection of companies that provide home repair insurance for home systems and appliances, but there is usually very limited information about each company and how it compares to its rivals in terms of home warranty insurance cost, coverage, and customer reviews.

To fill in this gap, and to make your search for a reliable home warranty insurance company more manageable, ReviewHomeWarranties not only assessed these companies but also compared them to one another and selected the best out of 55 companies in the database in several categories.

For each category, we have developed strict criteria and metrics. First, we distinguished home warranty vs. home insurance companies an selected the latter ones. We only considered those companies that have established a good reputation on the market and had valid information including home warranty insurance deductibles and premiums readily available to their customers.

Please contact us if you would like to nominate the best home warranty insurance company for next year’s awards. Tells us what you like most about it and why you would recommend it to other homeowners. Every review counts!
