Have you ever thought about buying a home warranty? If you answer yes to any of the following questions, a Landmark home warranty is a perfect fit for you.

Do you have an older home or older systems and appliances?

Older homes have all the charm and character that you could ever need, but sometimes the systems and appliances can be a little run down from previous owners’ usage. That’s where a home warranty can be helpful! A home warranty covers systems and appliances that have failed due to normal wear and tear.

One of the most common systems that fail on an older home is the HVAC system. An average repair of your HVAC system without a home warranty can cost anywhere from $3700-$7100. If you have a home warranty, the average cost is $582 to repair or replace an HVAC failure, saving you a lot of money.

Have you maintained your systems and appliances but are worried they might fail due to normal wear and tear?

Performing routine maintenance on your systems and appliances will extend their lifespans. However, nothing will run forever, no matter how well you take care of it. Eventually, your systems and appliances will fail due to normal wear and tear. A home warranty will repair and replace those failed systems and appliances. When looking for a home warranty company, look for one that has a good record on repairing and replacing those systems and appliances. Landmark Home Warranty approved 94% of claims that were opened in the last year, and has paid out over $19 million in claims as well!

Do you want to save money by not paying full price for repairs or replacements on your systems or appliances?

Landmark Home Warranty partners with different vendors and contractors to get the best prices on labor and parts for our customers. Because of that partnership, the only thing that you, as a homeowner, have to pay out of pocket is the service call fee. The average savings with a home warranty are:

  • $225 for plumbing systems.
  • $241 for HVAC systems.
  • $248 for electrical systems.
  • $96 for appliances.

Are you okay with a longer wait on getting your systems or appliances fixed while we hunt for the best deal for you?

Once you open a claim with Landmark, a contractor will be sent to your home to perform a diagnostic test. The contractor will then contact Landmark and Landmark will approve or deny the claim. If the contractor has the parts that they need to make the repair, then they can repair it that day. If they do not have the parts, Landmark will order the needed parts. The contractor will then come back on a later date and make the necessary repairs or replacements.

On average, claims opened with Landmark Home Warranty are completed within an average of six days.  If you are okay with waiting for greater savings and remarkable service, then a home warranty is right for you.

Do you not have time to search for a contractor to come out and fix the issue on your system or appliance?

Instead of having to do research about different contractors in your area who can come to your home to diagnose and repair the failure on your system or appliance. When you have a home warranty all you have to do is call Landmark and they will set you up with a contractor in your area. Landmark partners with licensed and highly qualified contractors to ensure that any repair or replacement is addressed in a professional manner. Landmark will find the best contractor in your area to make the repairs and get you the maximum amount of savings.
