There are many things to love about being a homeowner in Buffalo Grove or Lincolnshire. But nobody loves expensive repairs – and when the heating system starts acting up or an appliance breaks down, suddenly owning a home can start to feel less like a dream and more like a hassle.
A home warranty is a service contract that covers the repair or replacement of parts and components of your home’s systems and appliances when they break down due to normal wear and tear.
A home warranty can offer four types of warranty plans:
Combination (both appliances and systems)
Build your own (specific appliances and/or systems)
You may be able to add on optional coverages for an additional fee.
The warranties cover normal wear and tear—for instance, a dishwasher would be covered if it began leaking due to its age; a dishwasher would not be covered if its door was broken by a child jumping on it.
Here’s a list of what a home warranty typically covers.
Built-in microwaves ovens
Free-standing ice makers
