Protect Your Household with a Home Warranty
Having homeowners insurance is useful, but it doesn't protect your appliances from breakdowns, so having a home warranty can be a practical supplement that can provide your budget with additional security from unexpected costs.
When you opt for the services of a home warranty company in Virginia, you don't have to worry when your heating system or appliances like the dishwasher or refrigerator suddenly break down. Getting qualified help could be just a phone call away.
For a competitive price, you can get coverage for your home appliances and systems, no matter how old they might be, as long as they are in good working order when coverage starts.
Why worry about home appliance failures? First American has got your back!
Won't it be nice to sit back and enjoy the budget protection and peace of mind that a First American home warranty can offer?
It's tough to stay on top of appliance maintenance. No matter how well you maintain them, appliances will break down eventually. When that happens, you'll either have to try and fix them yourself or look for a qualified contractor that can help you.
A broken heating system can cost hundreds of dollars to repair and thousands to replace, and either amount can be a significant budget hit for anyone—especially when it happens unexpectedly.
But when you have a Virginia home warranty plan, you get comprehensive protection for your home systems and appliances that can protect them no matter when the breakdown happens. Contact us and we’ll assign a contractor to diagnose the problem and determine whether the covered item can be repaired or replaced.
Home Buyer? Home Seller?
Buying a home involves taking on plenty of risk on its own, so you want a solution that helps you minimize the number of potential problems you'll have to deal with down the road.
Buying a Home
That's why home warranty companies in Richmond and across Virginia are becoming more important to homebuyers. The additional protection offers financial security, saves time, and provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing that when a covered item breaks down, you can get a qualified contractor to help repair or replace it.
Selling a Home
The same goes for home sellers: when managing your selling your home, the last thing you want to deal with are unexpected breakdowns of appliances that can make selling much more difficult.
With the help of a Virginia home warranty plan, you not only protect appliances and systems that are part of your asset, you also give your buyers added reassurance that they will have a solution for unexpected issues if breakdowns occur.

Every time I have called for help, the person I talked to was professional and promptly addressed my needs. I had just moved and the home I chose developed electrical, plumbing, and air conditioning problems. First American provided all the help I needed.
Very easy process to initiate a claim and get it resolved in a professional and timely manner. The online submission form was straightforward and simple to use and I was contacted within 24 hours with an appointment time. The contractor arrived on time and did an excellent job.
Great service in a timely manner. Replacing the pump in one day, while under the corona limitations. Professional service and very responsive per the pandemic order. The order was done using the website in minutes and a repair facility was assigned on the spot.
