HomeServe to Offer Water Service Line Protection Plan to Select Homeowners in Minnesota

Homeowners Can Now Seek Relief From High Home Repair Costs

MIAMI, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeServe, a leading provider of home emergency repair programs with hundreds of thousands of policies in place, is doing their share to keep homeowners protected. Previously reaching customers through partner utility companies, HomeServe has announced that they will be offering their protection program directly to select area homeowners.

The water service line is the pipe that brings freshwater into a home and it is typically the homeowner's responsibility to maintain it. On most properties, this line starts from the curb or well casing and goes all the way into the home, connecting to the water heater, sinks, showers and more. Temperature changes, shifting soil or the age of the line can all be causes of damage. Many times this will result in a loss of water pressure or a loss of water altogether. In other instances, the effects will not be noticed until there is a spike in the water bill due to an underground leak.

HomeServe is able to offer emergency solutions that protect homeowners from the hassle and expense of unexpected 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 will be offering its Water Service Line Protection Plan via a direct mail campaign. This plan offers 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 HomeServe contractor to make any necessary repairs.

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