Home warranties are optional protection plans that prevent homeowners from paying full price for costly repairs on major appliances—such as dishwashers and water heaters—and systems, like heating and cooling. One downside to most home warranties is that they only repair or replace covered items that are properly installed and maintained.
That’s the best part about First American Home Warranty. Its First Class Upgrade is indeed an upgrade from most home warranty plans, as it covers appliances and systems even if they were improperly installed, modified, or maintained. This means, if your 19-year-old water heater broke and show signs of rust or corrosion, the repair or replacement is still covered by First American.
First American offers a Basic Plan for both home buyers and sellers, an upgraded Eagle Premier Plan for homeowners, and First Class Upgrades, which is home warranty coverage for additional items on an à la carte basis.
