Why AHS image

WHY AMERICAN HOME SHIELD?

We’re glad you asked.

We cover things homeowners insurance doesn’t.

American Home Shield isn’t insurance. We provide plans for people who have systems and appliances they’d like to keep in working order.

No system or appliance is too old.

You can get protection regardless of the age or appearance of your covered items — no maintenance records or inspection required. Now those breakdowns are our problem, not yours.

Even your satisfaction is covered.

With our 30-day workmanship guarantee, if you have an issue with your completed repair within 30 days of service, we’ll send a contractor back out for free.
