"I had the drain on the kitchen sink stopped up, they sent a guy from atlas plumbing out to our house. This idiot got under the sink with a power snake and proceeded to bust the pipes" that went into the wall because he was pushing the snake so hard and trying to force it to clean out the drain. Then he said that he would have to go on the roof and get the clog out that way and told me that it would cost me $700.00. I told him to get out of my home and I practically had to throw him out and he left everything broken under the sink but he insisted that I pay him $45.00 for the service call. I had to call another plumber to fix the broken drain and he was able to un clog the sink in a matter of minutes. A few weeks after the above problem we had a problem with out refrigerator in the garage, they would not fix it as they only cover the frig in the kitchen. I cancelled my contract with the company

"After we bought the house, we bought AHS "home warranty". At some point, AC started to malfunction. AHS sent an AC technician who did not fix anything and we had to pay" $60 "co-pay". So we had to hire another company to do the job. Later that year, we had some problem with the roof and AHS refused to do anything about it. Overall, it was a complete wast of money. My advise is for you to stay away from this company. I have no idea how such horrible company manages to stay in business...

refused to send anyone out for the furnace, even though our own HVAC company found needed repairs that would have amounted to thousands of dollars. The reason" AHS refused is that furnace is still technically running. Until it completely stops functioning,
will not do anything. That experience was bad enough, but the experience with the dishwasher was even worse. We have now contacted AHS 4 times for the same recurring problem. Two of the incidents occurred close enough in time that they did not charge us their usual $60 service fee. Enough time passed between the other incidents, though, that we have now spent $180 to repair a warrantied dishwasher. It is obvious that this company's game is not to provide the homeowner with service on a covered item, but to have their service company do as little as possible so that they can collect another $60 fee next time the same problem recurs. There is no such thing as this company realizing that the same problem has occurred often enough to conclude that the appliance or system is a "lemon" and ought to be replaced. The company's customer service is a joke. Their personnel are trained simply to continue saying "no" very nicely. No one makes any effort to solve the homeowner's problem. Also, their evening/weekend service is practically non-existent. If your appliance breaks on the weekend (as ours did), you will not hear back from their service person until the following work week. And forget about timeliness. We scheduled an early morning appointment, but the serviceman was almost 2 hours late, using the lame excuse that a "previous appointment" ran long. We had originally intended to renew this warranty after a year, but we now seriously doubt that we will. We wish realtors would stop pushing these home warranty policies with companies like
, as they seem to be a complete waste of money.

7 components of a good home warranty

Home warranty companies are the number one most complained about category on Angie’s List. If you decide to purchase a warranty, look for the components of a good home warranty before signing the contract.

Home warranties

Year after year home warranty companies have topped the Angie's List most complained about category list, with nearly half of member reports in this category rating these companies unfavorably. The key behind this appears to be an expectations gap between the companies and their clients regarding what is covered and whether service calls on covered items are entirely free.

Home warranties don't always come with the kind of robust protection and security homeowners expect. Here's a quick breakdown on the real costs, and real benefits, of purchasing a warranty for your home.

Angie's List
Warranty Companies - Home

A home warranty, or home service contract, provides service, repair or replacement on a home’s major systems and appliances for a usual term of one year. They've also topped our list of most-complained about categories for three years running.

First, call your insurance company and tell them you do not want any proceeds paid to the contractor under your policy as you are not going with them.  This way they can not collect money on your behalf.  Insurance will typically have you sign a form for release of funds anyway but this is a good extra step to make sure your signature isn't forged.  Second, call the contractor and tell them you will not be needing their services afterall.  Did your husband pay a deposit?  If so it may be non-refundable.  Then follow up with a certified letter. 

 

An email as well doesn't hurt but some states don't yet recognize email as a form of communication for legally binding documentation.  This may have changed and I'm sure more states do recognize them as I haven't followed that topic elsewhere as much as I used to.  The contractor's office should be local.  A sure fire way to ensure they got the message is to deliver the letter to the office of the contractor and have someone at the office sign a duplicate stating it has been recieved and read.  There's no arguing whether they received it or not by doing that.

 

Hopefully you've learned your lesson about high pressure sales techniques and storm chasers looking for a quick buck.  Some people find out a much harder way.  While these guys may be legitimate you should always do your homework on a contractor before signing the contract.  Unless you have water running out of the house and the work has to be done on the spot it's not so much of an emergency that it can't wait until the next day.

Consider going to library an reading Consumer Reports rating on home insurance companies in your area.  For affordabilty elect the highest deductable you can stomach.  This will lower your premioum, I went thru Costco, they and Sam's Club can be a valuable resource for home and car insurance. Shop on line with your needs to save money.  Unless you have major assets forget large policy. For your gutter and roofing needs see my blog.
