Select - Reviewed & Compared

Select Home Warranty has been giving homeowners peace of mind since 2012. And while the company is relatively young, they do have several strong benefits that we like, particularly with their generously high dollar limits on system repairs.

Overview of Coverages and Costs

Select Home Warranty will cover all of the home systems and appliances you want them to cover (your electric, plumbing, important appliances/etc). They also have an excellent suite of optional coverages for those who need them (like pools/spas, and even roof leaks, which many other warranty companies do not cover).

Positives of American Home Shield

  • They do not require an inspection.
  • Network of pre-screened local contractors.
  • Good optional coverages, including roof leaks.
  • Solid website quote form – easy to use.
  • 24 hr. claim hotline.

Any Negatives

Their basic bronze coverage does not cover heating or plumbing (although some people might just want basic coverage). You must also use their contractors, and there is a 30-day wait period until coverage begins (so they aren’t covering already-broken items).

What Others Are Saying
