We are very pleased with First American Home Warranty. Approximately two years ago our refrigerator stopped working. FAHW sent a repairman out within a day or so. When all was finished they had installed a new condenser and computer? It probably would have cost us a thousand dollars or more had we not had a home warranty. This year, 2021, our heat pump stopped working and FAHW replaced it with a totally new heat pump. They did it without any argument etc. We have used FAHW for several years now and highly recommend them. We wouldn't be without their service...and it is reasonably priced. I was a realtor for 24 years and they were my home warranty of choice. They never failed to make things right. People need to remember that with just about everything,things go wrong, or are not done as quickly as impatient people want done. We don't think you could do any better with any other home warranty.
Hello Dorothy. We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback.
I have a open claim for a ac replacement and I was told that I had to pay $2500 to get the job done. I asked for a cashout and I have been getting the runaround. I was assigned a claims representative named CARLOTTA ** at extension **. It's been over six weeks and I have left over a hundred messages on Carlotta’s extension and still haven’t received a call back. This company is impossible to deal with.
The worst insurance company I have ever dealt with. Our dishwasher stopped working and insurance assigned service called Smart Choice. Smart Choice technician came 4 times and he had no idea (he even said he would lose his job if he tells he can't fix). We explained insurance and asked for another service. Insurance assigned Fox and technician figured out the problem but insurance decided to assign Smart Choice back. Smart Choice keeps cancelling request. Now insurance company keeps hanging up the phones. By the way, you can't send emails or submit any issues/complains through their website. They blocked all written communication ways so there is no proof left.

For over 25 years as a military family we moved around 17 times and always relied on home warranties until now that we were are in our forever home. Our AC stopped working last week and we immediately place an order for repair. The AC is still not fixed, company has not even ordered the part, it's almost 100 degrees here in Texas and the vendor is trying to overcharge us for added repairs that are not necessary. We even paid the top AC company in the area for a second opinion and they provided a report and offered to talk to First American to verify that the repairs or modifications Cortina & Sons are not necessary and are fraudulent. This is the worst home warranty company ever. Canceling ASAP! Going back to American Home Shield.
We had a couple of rooms without power. First American sent out an electrician who determined the problem was not in the breaker box and recommended rewiring. That company submitted its recommendation to First American who then sent out another company who found the loose wire in one of the wall boxes and fixed the problem without a major project. First American is a smart outfit.
Hello Blaine. Thank you for your review.
Triton Plumbing did prompt, professional job, arriving with correct part after receiving schematic of system online. Allows doing job on one visit and quickly. Mr, ** has encyclopedic plumbing experience and a full collection of potentially necessary parts in his truck.
Hello Seth. We are glad to hear your plumbing repair was completed in one day. We look forward to servicing you again in the future.
I had a leaking pool pump. I called to put in claim and it was fixed without further ado. I appreciate the professional treatment that was provided by First American Home Warranty and by the technician they sent to fix the pump. I'm a satisfied customer.
Glad to hear it Jeanne!
Diamond Garage Door repair. Excellent. Gentleman was courteous and knew what he was doing. He explained the entire process to me. The only question I have is why wasn't the repair covered? I had to pay the $700.00 plus the $75.00.
Hello JoAnn. We appreciate your feedback. Our records indicate you placed a claim for your garage door opener not opening/closing. Diamond Garage Doors found the failure was to your garage door opener and replaced the unit under the home warranty contract. However, the springs and and tune up was what they charged you for as we do not cover for maintenance or springs by your contract. The $75.00 service call fee was collected by Diamond Garage Doors at the time of service on behalf of First American. The service call fee is due for every claim placed. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
First American Home Warranty was Great!! Good service with nice people! Now the Plumbing service All intercity Plumbing came and replaced the disposal that was leaking and left me with a NEW LEAK from one of the connecting pipes and would not come back the same day. Very poor service. Will never let them in my home again!! I paid to have somebody else to fix the leak.
Thank you William for your review!
As always, this warranty company is the best. Prompt service and excellent follow-thru. The appliance company was wonderful to work with on the appointment. Looking forward to the new stove being installed. We have this warranty on another home. Same great service. Thank you.
