What Does a Home Warranty Cover?
Home warranties provide protection against unexpected expenses for repair or replacement of covered home systems or appliances. But which of your many appliances and systems are covered by these plans?
There are as many answers to this question as there are different home warranty coverage plans. The short answer is, it’s up to you!
Standard vs. Optional Coverage
First of all, appliances and systems old and new are just as easily covered by a home warranty since inspections or maintenance records are not required to purchase a plan from Trinity Home Advisors.
However, the manufacturer or builder warranties on specific items in a new home may have coverage limits, such as six months for appliances, a year for drywall and paint, two years for plumbing, HVAC, and electrical, and up to a decade for structural issues and defects.

However, we offer add-on plans for these items to ensure they are just as covered as the other high-priced items within your home and around your property. Such coverage does come at an added cost, but the security these plans provide is worth the price.
Examples of items deserving of added-on coverage include:
There are also many situations that are simply not covered by a home warranty at all. Here are some items that are excluded from most policies:
