More Reasons to Choose the 18-Month Warranty

Option to choose your own contractor for warranty repairs.
No “pre-existing condition” excuses to avoid coverage if we inspect the property and find the item in question to be in working order at that time.
Simple square footage pricing model with no add-on fees.
If a claim is ever denied and is verified to be eligible on another warranty contract, the claim will be paid or a 100% premium refund provided.
Free listing coverage, including HVAC, if you are the seller of a property.
The 18-Month Warranty is backed by a national home warranty company and provides coverage in all 50 states.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: Only homes inspected by 1st Rate Inspections qualify for the 18-Month Warranty with the free 6 months of extra coverage. All other homes can only qualify for the 12- Month Home Warranty.

Optional coverage items that can be added to the warranty:

Service Call Fee Option: All home warranties have a service call fee or “deductible”. You can choose whether you would prefer a $99 service call fee or $75 service call fee.

This is a $75 one-time increase in the initial cost with a $75 reduced service call fee for the duration of the warranty (no matter how many claims!).
Mold Option: This option includes visible mold growth coverage and will cover the remediation of any new visible mold up to $2000. This option adds $85 to the initial cost of the warranty.
Pool and Spa Coverage: This option covers the mechanical components of in-ground pools and spas.  This option adds $185 to the initial cost of the warranty.
