About American Home Shield

Our “Why”

Back in 1971, there was no protection for homeowners from the inconvenience or cost of household breakdowns. We decided to do something about it – and founded the home warranty industry by creating American Home Shield®.

Coverage You Can Count On

Today, with 50 years of experience, we’re the leader in home warranties. We pay more claims than the other guys. More than $2 billion in the last five years if we’re going to be exact, which we should. When it comes to protecting your budget and home, details matter.

We’re On Your Side.

Our goal is to empower homeowners to feel confident and in control of their home. We want to help you keep your home running smoothly, all the time. We aren’t insurance. We provide plans for people with home systems and appliances they’d like to keep in working order, regardless of their age or condition. Whether you've lived in your home for years, or are buying or selling a home, we’ve got a plan that will meet your specific needs.

Our Members Get More.

Each of our 1.8M members gets peace of mind and budget protection, access to a nationwide network of 17,000 local, licensed contractors, comprehensive coverage for essential home systems and appliances – plus additional protection available for electronics and select maintenance services.

It’s as simple as this: with us you’re prepared.
