American Home Shield Home Warranty review
AHS has ALWAYS been a savior for us! The company is caring, personally involved, They and ALWAYS there for you! They do everything possible to make a miseable situation for YOU as quickly solved as possible. All the folks they send to your house are always very professional, very caring and very kind. The company is by far the finest I've every had the pleasure to deal with! They solve your problem quickly, completely and throughly in a timely fashion. I would NEVER consider using ANY other company to take care of me and my family!!! I would recommend AHS to anyone who cares about their home and family!!!

Old Republic has always taken care of my issues with my home. I had switched to American Home shield and found there plumbing contractor was a crook. I stop using AHS. I think they are lousy.

Old Republic Home Warranty review
I've had old republic for two years since I bought the house. The first year I had two service calls they came in a timely fashion and fix them. The second year they charge me $190 more for a renewal . My Air conditioner was not working and it took them three different service man to fix it over a four-month period. And my subzero icemaker was not working in June and it took them four different service men over a 7 months to send somebody out to try and fix it. Each time they came they charge me a service charge . Now without notice they tell me we are unable to renew your home warranty plan at this time. Good because The repair people were terrible and I was going to look for somebody else! Terrible home warranty company !

My heating system had been running constantly for several days, I submitted a new request online last night. This morning, received a call and informed that a technician would be calling to arrive this afternoon. He did, fixed the problem! 4 Stars so they don't get overly confident!

I am not sure why everyone is giving Old Republic Home Warranty such bad reviews. I have been using them for 8 years now and could not be more pleased with the service they provide. The contractors have been great as well.

American Home Shield Home Warranty review
Our hot water heater leaked and the contractor responded quickly and repaired the problem. He also recommended the Dry Wall Service that we would need to dry the walls surrounding the water heater. We were pleased with the time it took to restore everything to normal. The contractors were very polite, efficient and punctual. They did a marvelous job of cleaning up when they were finished.
