From Neighbor on Smith Oak TRL
Old Republic has always been great to my clients, and denying claims is not a standard practice, as has been the case (as I hear often) with American Home Shield. Their web site is: http://www.orhp.com/
What that said, Clark Howard (the national consumer advocate on KLBJ at night) thinks they are great for the first year after you buy your home (since the seller pays for it), but he does not suggest renewing them. His logic is that by the time you have had it 10 years, you have paid out $4,000 (for instance), and they saved you $500 over the life of the plan, so instead put the $50/month in a repair fund.
99.9% of what Clark Howard says, I consider the gospel in terms of deals, do’s and don’ts, etc. Below is an article he wrote on home warranty policies:

Neighbors – I’d like to highly recommend one of our very own Westcreek neighbors for your home remodeling and repair needs. His name is James Ball and he recently finished a beautiful deck for us that was way beyond what we were expecting. He is a highly skilled craftsman with an eye for quality design and function. Plus, his attention to detail is second to none. He has years of experience in this business and it shows through his talented work and his professionalism. He has done work for others in the neighborhood as well, which is how we found out about him. We will definitely be calling James again for additional home repair and remodeling needs. Contact him via email at email@example.com.

Gary re-texured a wall and painted, did some yard work, minor electrical, etc. He has been wonderful. We found him through our house cleaner, Adrian Lee, who has been cleaning homes in Westcreek for quite a number of years.
His business is called “Man Around The House.” Free estimates.

He has done some work for me in the past as I had him do some repair work on my backyard porch (he replaced a cedar post, and some rotted wood along the house). He did an excellent job. His info:”
