Founding the home warranty industry back in 1971, American Home Shield is still today’s largest, most-chosen home warranty provider. Their goal, the same today as it was back then, is to make owning a home easier by helping their customers protect their budgets from large, unexpected repair costs. Today, they cover many of the most commonly broken down systems and appliances. They even created a nationwide network of qualified repair professionals ready to help whenever the need arises. With American Home Shield customers using their plan an average of twice per year, they accept and pay out more service requests than any other home warranty company.
