First American Home Warranty Expands into Illinois

Trusted choice for home warranty coverage at an affordable price now available to Illinois homeowners

November 8, 2023, Santa Rosa, Calif.

First American Home Warranty, a subsidiary of First American Financial Corporation and one of the nation’s leading home warranty companies, today announced the company’s expansion into Illinois, providing homeowners in that state a trusted choice for home warranty coverage at an affordable price. 

Recognizing an opportunity to extend its reliable services to more homeowners, First American Home Warranty has leveraged its extensive network of independent contractors to offer home warranty protection directly to consumers in Illinois. Three comprehensive home warranty plans are now available: the Starter, Essential, and Premium plans. 

“Homeowners in Illinois deserve more choices when it comes to their home warranty coverage and we’re excited to launch our trusted services in the state,” said First American Home Warranty Division President and CEO Matt Wendl. “First American Home Warranty is committed to providing homeowners with essential protection against expensive repairs and replacements for their homes’ crucial systems and appliances.” 

First American Home Warranty, an industry leader established in 1984, offers service in multiple counties in northeast and southwest Illinois, leveraging national service providers for broad coverage, while expanding its network of local service providers. 

Homeowners can now check coverage in their area and purchase plans to protect their home systems and appliances when they fail due to normal wear and tear. 

Protection from Unexpected Repairs and Replacement Costs

A First American home warranty is a renewable service contract that protects a home’s systems and appliances from unexpected repair or replacement costs due to a breakdown. When a covered item breaks, First American Home Warranty sends an independent service contractor to the home to diagnose and repair or replace the item. 

Home warranties generally cover systems such as heating, air conditioning and plumbing, as well as household appliances, including dishwashers, ovens, clothes washers and dryers, and refrigerators. Moreover, homeowners can explore various options and upgrades to suit their needs.* In contrast to home insurance, which does not cover mechanical failures, a home warranty bridges this crucial protection gap. 

*Home warranty coverage varies by location, plan, and selected options.
