Why a Home Warranty?

A home warranty is a service contract that helps protect homeowners against the cost of unexpected covered repairs or replacement of their properly maintained major systems and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear.* CHW provides home warranty service contracts for single family homes, multiple units, condos, and even mobile and manufactured homes.

Whether you are a first time home buyer, seller, or existing homeowner, a home warranty is an affordable way to preserve peace of mind and to protect covered items for your most valuable asset!* Why flip through the yellow pages searching for a reputable service technician? At CHW, we strive to find the most honest, established vendors to service your claim.

Choice Home Warranty is the smart choice in home warranty protection.
