new home warranty insurance company a risk retention group
As an example, the industry average for after market auto warranties is 8%. That means for every dollar the warranty company collects from their clients, they pay out 8 cents on the dollar for claims. You can actually get better odds in Vegas. I received a home warranty when I bought my home from the estate of the previous owner. It proved valuable, since the previous owner had not kept up maintenance for some years. The warranty paid for replacement of the frozen main water shutoff, fixing an unsteady toilet and fixing a leaky tub drain fixture. That said, the quality of some of the work was not great. The toilet was unsteady because the tile floor on which it sat was uneven. The "fix" made was replacement of the wax sealing ring, which made the toilet steady for a few months but was not really a permanent fix. I ultimately set the toilet in a bed of grout to get a lasting fix. The second issue I had with the quality was that the "fix" for the tub leak would have left me with a $7 plastic drain in place of the original Eljer chrome plated, solid brass, triplever pop up bath drain which would cost about $400 were it still available.

I call back around 11:30 about 3 hours later because the way the last conversation ended did not seem right to me and the agent stated that a supervisor would be contacting me soon. I spoke with a new agent who told me again that everything in my file stated that I agreed to this dishwasher. He then states that supervisors call back within 24 hours. Plus he would start an investigation but it would take an additional 48 hours to verify what I am saying and to speak with the agent I spoke with. I asked if he was going to go back and review the conversation and he said probably. I then state that I still want a supervisor to call me and he says ok let me update the file.
