Protecting Your Largest Investment – How It All Started

Buying a house can be exciting, but also kind of scary. Back in 1971, we decided to make that process a little less scary by founding the home warranty industry. Before American Home Shield, there was nothing to protect homeowners from the expensive and unexpected repair and replacement costs that are inevitable with home ownership. Things like having the stove or washer stop working at the worst possible time or having the A/C quit in the heat of summer. We decided to change all of that and founded the home warranty industry.
