American Residential Warranty Review

American Residential Warranty  reviewAmerican Residential Warranty offers professional warranty services for your residential property.  Partnered with The Warranty Group, ARW is able to offer numerous home warranty options that will protect the policyholder in the event that a major appliance or home system breaks.



While some of these systems may have their own warranty coverage, a dedicated home warranty service will allow for complete coverage all from one provider, in a turn key system.

This is an economical and easy method of ensuring costly repairs don’t leave you without heat in the winter.

What a Basic Home Warranty Covers


As seen with 2-10 Home Warranty, there are a variety of features that are covered under a home warranty. While the coverage may change, the following items are covered, in whole or in part, depending on the plan chosen:

  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Washers and dryers
  • Central air units
  • Refrigerators
  • Electrical and plumbing systems
  • Microwaves, ice makers and exhaust fans
  • Garbage disposals, ovens and cooktops
  • Ceiling fans, garage doors and more

Additional Items

If more than one item exists or further coverage is needed, additional items can often be added into a policy from ARW. This includes spa equipment, pools, well pumps and a variety of other items not explicitly mentioned within the policy.

Making a Claim and Receiving Repairs

If an item covered within the policy breaks, the policyholder will be able to make a claim with American Residential Warranty. This is a simple process that takes just minutes to go through. Once a claim has been made, a few steps will be taken by the company:

  • The warranty provider makes the service call to have the item repaired.
  • A licensed, insured service provider will be dispatched.
  • Repairs will be made as stated within the policy.

This is as simple and easy as possible for the policyholder. If, when the service professional arrives, they deem that the item is beyond repair, ARW will make the necessary replacement.

Replacement costs must fall within the limits and mentioned terms within the warranty.

Any and all brands are covered within a warranty. The only stipulation that must be followed is that an item must be in good condition at the time of taking out the warranty. If an item is already damaged or not in good condition prior to the policy going into effect, it will not be covered.
