Categories and Selection Process
Giving the customers an edge and helping them take informed decisions regarding Home Warranty schemes and coverage, Home Warranty Awards not only play an immense role in assisting clients but also encourage the Home Warranty Companies to keep their policies and services up to the mark and constantly improving.
The first category, Top Rated, is awarded to the company that has shown excellence when it comes to overall customer satisfaction, ranking high in everything from services and product maintenance to complaint resolution, policies, and outreach.
The Best in Service Award is presented to the Home Warranty Company that shows distinction and quality when it comes to handling customer complaint resolution, servicing of products, claims, and repair.
Reserved for companies that are localized in a specific state or region, the Best Regional Award is given to a company that does not necessarily have a wide client base across the country but has shown excellence in its own region.
The Editor’s Choice Award looks at the Home Warranty Company’s overall rating as well, focusing on specific excellence in fields that show the company’s quality.
The selection process is rigorous and relies on information that is provided through research and analysis. Special focus is given to customer reviews and satisfaction as through the years, HomeWarrantyReviews.com has a database of more than 35,000 customer reviews. At the end of each year, companies are nominated under each category of the Home Warranty Awards and then subsequently the awardee is selected.
Companies are nominated based on a few basal requirements, regarding their customer base (at least 5,000 in number), years of experience (minimum of 5 active years in the industry) and coverage across the country (75% of the states of the US, not required for the Best Regional Award Category). Once these are met, the companies are screened by HomeWarrantyReviews.com for their standing when it comes to reviews, credibility, presence online and on social networks, accessibility and complaint resolution, satisfaction rate etc.

Home Maintenance Calculator and Other Tools
Purchasing Home Warranty is most often a big decision, and just as every home differs, so does the appropriate policy and coverage for the customer. The Home Maintenance Calculator gives you a chance to weigh the pros and cons of your decision to purchase a Home Warranty policy objectively. It helps you compare maintenance costs with and without the warranty. By feeding in basic information about your home, its age, appliances in it and their condition, the Home Maintenance Calculator provides you with an estimate of your expenditure for repairs and service for the years to come. This cost is compared to how much a Home Warranty policy would cost you for the same period of time.
Besides age of the house and its appliances, the Home Maintenance Calculator also requires you to feed in the specific age of major appliances, electrical systems, heating systems. It also requires you to mention how frequently you have repairs done in your home. The resulting comparison will give you a reasonable idea of whether or not Home Warranty is for you. Make sure you supplement the estimate provided by the tool with adequate research before you pick your company, policy, perks, and claims. Also, keep in mind that state laws regarding Home Warranty vary across the United States. So, it is important you check your region’s specifications before signing papers. State-wise laws and claim information as well are available on HomeWarrantyReviews.com.
The site also has inbuilt features to compare policies within and between companies, saving you from the tedious task of having to tally features and perks across different portals and websites. This is further added to the State and City-wise listings which offer a comprehensive comparison of prices and policies as well.
