Select Home Warranty Review
Select Home Warranty makes it easier for homeowners to get coverage for their appliances and systems by providing a variety of home warranty options. Maintaining a home, especially an old one, can be very frustrating and financially draining. Select Home Warranty's help lines are available 24/7, you'll have access to thousands of affiliated local contractors who provide service across the country.
Select Home Warranty offers three major plans: Bronze, Gold and Platinum care. Bronze is geared toward covering home appliances, Gold covers home systems. Platinum offers both Bronze and Gold coverage and a lot, lot more.
A good thing about Select Home Warranty is they actually require you to sign your contract before they start charging you. You would think this was par for the course, but we found a lot of providers don't even give you the contract unless you ask. Of course we recommend you methodically go through your contract before you decide on purchasing. And that doesn't just apply to Select Home Warranty it goes for any home warranty provider. Home warranties often have specific stipulations, like requiring you to provide inspection records of certain systems and appliances.

Select Home Warranty covers a wide range of home systems and appliances in their Platinum plan, but still comes up short compared to other similarly priced plans from other home warranty providers. Select Home Warranty’s Bronze and Gold plans do not offer enough coverage, this makes the Platinum the only logical choice for homeowners. Some of the other items covered in their optional plans like stand alone freezers or central vacuum systems are commonly offered in other company's basic packages, which makes getting them as an optional feature a more expensive option altogether.
