What is Home Improvement?

Basically, home improvement or what better known as home renovation, is a simple process of making additions and repairs to your home in order to improve and strengthen its structure as well as appearance, thus making it truly one of a kind.


What is a Home Warranty?

A home warranty is very important to every homeowner especially for those who plan to sell out their houses in the near future. A home warranty helps covers and insures all the repair and replacement costs of most of your home systems, components and appliances that breakdown frequently.

Home warranties act like small insurance policies which can be purchased by both the home buyer and seller. It usually costs for only around five hundred dollars, which can be acquired through companies such as American Home Shield (AHS) and 2-10.

Generally, a home warranty pays for the repair costs caused by failure or breakdown of your typical home systems such as emergency plumbing, electricity, heating, air conditioning and so forth, which are very likely not being covered by typical home insurance policies.

Additionally, to sellers who wish their homes to be sold faster, a home warranty can help increase the confidence of the buyers plus adding more value and reliability to the sellers' homes. Home warranties prevent buyers from unnecessary repair costs which save them money and help protect their new investment.

As for existing homeowners, a home is probably one of your largest investments. Your budget may be easily affected by unexpectedly high replacement and repair costs. Hence, it is better to protect your finance as early as possible by purchasing a home warranty. Besides, it could be very inconvenient if you were to hire a contractor or repairman to help solve your home problems.
