A home warranty, also known as a home service agreement, typically helps cover the cost of repairs or replacement for home systems and appliances. Specific coverage is based on the terms and conditions of the plan you select and the items you elect to cover. The warranty company will repair or replace any covered item that experiences a mechanical failure due to normal wear and tear under the terms of the plan.View Plans
