Faucet & Valve Warranty Coverage

The faucets and valves in our homes are such a common and reliable convenience, most of us take them for granted. Until one of them stops working, that is. Because while they typically last for several years, malfunctions can still occur. Having the right coverage can make it a lot easier to keep them up and running. Rather than panicking when you discover a covered problem, you can simply call American Home Shield.

Faucets and valves are covered in our ShieldSilver™, ShieldGold™ and ShieldPlatinum™ home service plans along with other Home Systems and Appliances

*American Home Shield will cover up to $1,000 should the contractor need to cut through concrete to access any system components.
