Permits/Modifications/Code Violations

As an added benefit for our customers, we offer Deluxe Advantage coverage for Permits/Modifications/Code Violations in addition to our Home Protection Plans. Since repairing or replacing appliances and systems can be an already costly process, you can have peace of mind knowing that should additional expenses arise during the repair process to correct code violations, obtain permits, make modifications and remove or dispose of defective equipment, you can have peace of mind knowing those costs are also covered.

Permits/Modifications/Code Violations

At American Residential Warranty, we understand that for most homeowners it is important to protect their budget against unforeseen financial circumstances. So we want to take that a step further and give you coverage options that will protect your wallet as well as your biggest asset, your home.

Maximize Your Coverage By Adding Deluxe Advantage To Our Platinum Premier Plan

Under our plans, homeowners experience the convenience of having customizable coverage for their new and existing home appliances, systems and electronics. There are no individual plans that ONLY cover one system (i.e.: heating, cooling or electrical). Instead, we offer different base plans that can be customized by adding additional coverage to fit your unique needs.

American Residential Warranty’s Platinum Premier plan qualifies for the Deluxe Advantage option, which extends the base coverage by including costs for Permits/Modifications/Code Violation Corrections, as well as many other items. We also offer other “Advantage” options if you only need additional coverage on your central heating and cooling or plumbing systems.

Platinum Premier Plan: Major kitchen appliances, garbage disposal, water heater, interior plumbing and electrical systems, central heating and cooling, ductwork, ceiling fans and garage door opener – ONLY $64.99/mo (plus applicable state taxes)

Advantage Plan Options

Deluxe Advantage:: This option can be added to our Platinum Premier plan ONLY. Purchasing this option expands the coverage on some of the listed appliances so that items normally listed as “NOT COVERED”, will now be covered.
Deluxe Advantage includes the following:

* Range/Oven/Cook top clocks, rotisseries, racks, handles, knobs, dials and interior lining.
Built-in Microwave Oven clocks, shelves, door glass and interior lining.
* Garage Door springs and tracks.
* Water Heater failures due to sediment build up.
* Appliance or system failures caused by improper installation, repairs or mismatched systems.

A/C Advantage: Replacing refrigerants, like Freon, or leaking coils can be costly. Adding this coverage to your existing heating/cooling coverage will go above & beyond simple mechanical breakdowns.

Plumbing Advantage: While our Platinum Premier plan already includes basic plumbing & stoppage coverage such as the vents and under-sink traps, it doesn’t cover the toilets, faucets, fixtures or the internal mechanisms/wax seals on the toilets. This additional coverage will give you peace of mind that all your basic faucets, fixtures and toilets are covered.
