Tennessee Homeowners Can Lower Home Repair Costs with Protection Plan

STAMFORD, Conn. -- Home repairs can become expensive when temperatures change, soil shifts, or the age of your water service line causes damage. The water service line is the pipe that brings fresh water into a home. It is ordinarily the homeowner's responsibility to maintain it.

The line starts at the curb or well casing on most properties and goes all the way into the home then connects to the water heater, sinks, showers, and more. Oftentimes, homeowners won't become aware of the problem until they see a spike in their water bill due to an underground leak.

A company called HomeServe offers emergency plans that protect homeowners from the expense and hassle of unexpected home repairs. "Emergencies do happen and unfortunately, there's very little someone can do to prepare for them," says Jonathan King, Chief Executive Officer of HomeServe. "Rather than having to scramble and pay thousands of dollars in the midst of a home emergency, HomeServe takes care of the legwork from start to finish."

HomeServe is a leading provider of emergency home repair program. The company currently has over a million policies in place. In the past, HomeServe has reached customers through partner utility companies but are now offering their most popular protection plans directly to select area homeowners.

HomeServe is offering its Water Service Line Protection Plan to homeowners via a no obligation direct mail offer. The plan provides consumers thousands of dollars in coverage for a low monthly fee. When enrolled in the program, customers have access to a 24-hour emergency hotline that will dispatch a contractor to make any necessary home repairs.

HomeServe has established a locally based network of licensed and qualified contractors to serve the area. Contractors are screened and assessed before joining the HomeServe network and making repairs at the customer's home. "We aim to provide every customer with first-class service and make sure that our contractors do the same," says King.
