Home inspector checking side wall of house - Home warrantyHow does warranty work?

Here’s how it works…

An interested home inspector becomes a member of the American Home Warranty Association by signing up online and then submitting warranty information online, while choosing one of the AHW available warranty program and payment options. All inspection and warranty status information is available to participating members 24/7 online.

Major credit cards are accepted. Additional information about fee amounts and plans, limited warranty forms, available marketing support materials, etc., is available at custserv@ahomewarranty.com or 1-800-404-5479.
