ABC Home and Commercial Services

“We use ABC Home and Commercial Services for EVERYTHING! Trees, home repairs, electrical, painting, lawn, sprinklers, pest control (includes removing raccoons and squirrels in the attic, and of course bugs)….. They have licensed professionals contracted and they jump on it and get it done. For example, they contracted the exact same well known tree trimming company at a lower price than we were quoted and saved us a few hundred dollars.”

Home Warranty

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:
