If there's one thing I've learned since becoming a homeowner a little over 5 years ago, it's that any thing that can go wrong usually does go wrong. Owning a home can be quite expensive, for unlike an apartment, you are responsible for any and all upkeep and repairs that occur.
I had no idea what a home protection plan was when we bought our home, but thankfully, our realtor strongly recommended we purchase one for our home and we did. A home insurance policy covers the structure of the home itself, while a home protection plan covers the CONTENTS of your home, such as water heaters and major appliances, when they need repair or replacement.
American Home Shield invented the concept of home protection plans a little more than 39 years ago and have since become the leading home protection plan company. American Home Shield provides homeowners warranty plans which provide peace of mind for any homeowner 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
They are also part of the ServiceMaster family, which includes such home service companies as ServiceMaster Clean, TruGreen, Terminix and Merry Maids, so you can rest assured that any service request you require will be handled by only the best and most reputable companies.
American Home Shield has also developed the Flex Plan, which allows any homeowner to select and pay for the exact level of insurance that works best for their particular home. Now, you no longer have to pay for coverage you won't use. Thanks to the Flex Plan, you can select a tailor-made home protection plan which will provide the ultimate in peace of mind and shield you from those unexpected expenses when the inevitable major home system breaks down.
