Old Republic Home Protection offers home warranty plans in the majority of the southern states. Whilst plans and prices vary between the states, most share the same three-tier model.
‘Standard Protection’ begins at $275 per year ($23 per month) and makes up to core coverage of Old Republic’s protection. With this plan, you will enjoy protection for your heating system and ductwork, plumbing, electrical and even limited pest control. Amongst the pests included in the control are ants, roaches, earwigs, spiders, silverfish, crickets, mice and millipedes. You will also have coverage for your garage door opener, central vacuum, dishwasher, trash compactor, kitchen exhaust, oven, range, cooktop and microwave oven.
‘Premier Plus’ will cost $525 per year or $48 per month and adds extra protection on top of the ‘Standard’ coverage list. With this package you’ll find additional coverage for electric a/c window units, faucets, shower, pressure regulators, sediment damage, garage door parts, attic fans and protection for “no-fault” breakdowns.
The ‘Ultimate Protection’ plan is the next step up and will cost $385 or $32 – yearly or monthly respectively. You will be entitled to all of the coverage from the ‘Standard’ plan; along with air conditioner, refrigerator, water heater and smoke detector. More appliances and units are included in the ‘Ultimate Protection’ when it comes to your plumbing and heating, along with enhanced coverage for code violations, permit breach and waste disposal.
The most comprehensive plan is the ‘Platinum Protection’ which couples all of the protection above and adds additional plumbing items along with vents, flues and heating/a/c systems which use diesel, oil, Glycol and more.
With experience spanning four decades and a sterling reputation to match, we weren’t surprise to experience excellent customer service from Old Republic while researching this review. You can get in contact with the team via mail, by phone, by fax or through e-mail. You are assigned a ‘Local Account Executive’ who knows the codes, laws and requirements of your state. All of the staff we spoke to were experts in their field and had clearly been highly trained in customer service.
Old Republic has been longstanding and successful for a reason. With low prices across most of the southern states including Texas, Florida and California – if you’re lucky enough to have coverage from this company then you should snap it up whilst you can. The prestige behind Old Republic is more than justified and we’d be perfectly happy putting our homes under its protection.
