5 Must-Have Options for Home Warranty Coverage

5 must-have options for home warranty coverage

Did you know that in addition to several base home warranty plans, which protect your important systems and appliances, you can add coverage options? 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW) always wants you to have the power to get the coverage you want at a fair price. Here are five of the most popular home warranty coverage options we offer.

1. Washer and dryer coverage

One of the perks of home ownership is the freedom to wash and dry your clothes in private. When your washer or dryer breaks down, it takes that freedom away from you. Fortunately, 2-10 HBW’s washer and dryer option protects you against those unexpected breakdowns.

When you add washer and dryer protection to your home warranty coverage, you get a couple of perks.

First, we plug you into our network of local contractors. That means less searching for someone trustworthy and more time solving your problem.

Second, we help cover the costs of repairing or replacing a broken-down washer or dryer. On average, these costs can run about $317 to repair and $1,300 to replace. Home warranty coverage with the washer/dryer option from 2-10 HBW can reduce that to a mere Service Fee (usually less than $100).

2. Roof leak coverage

Roof leaks are annoying at best and dangerous at worst. Home warranty coverage with 2-10 HBW’s roof leak option gives you protection against this common problem.

According to Forbes, the average cost to repair a roof is $950. Adding roof leak coverage costs just a fraction of that price. Plus, it can reduce the cost of qualified repairs to as low as $100. No matter how you slice it, roof leak coverage is an incredible option for responsible homeowners.

3. Service Fee Save Up or Buy Down

Every home warranty company has a Service Fee. But not every home warranty company gives you the option to adjust it. With 2-10 HBW’s Service Fee Save Up and Service Fee Buy Down options, you can do just that.

If you choose the Buy Down option, you can lower your Service Fee from $85 to $65 by paying a little bit extra upfront in your annual or monthly payment.

Choosing the Save Up option lets you pay a little less upfront by raising your Service Fee from $85 to $100.

Thanks to our fair and transparent pricing, you can find the Service Fee that’s right for you. That means less wondering about what it could cost to address a major home system or appliance breakdown. And that kind of knowledge can give you the power to plan your future more accurately and comfortably.

4. Extended pipe leak coverage

Sometimes, you’ll have plumbing that extends outside of your home’s foundation, beyond covered items like your water heater. If that plumbing broke down, you’d normally be on the hook for repair or replacement costs. With extended pipe leak coverage, you can expand your protection.

Though this coverage doesn’t cover things like sprinkler systems, it can cover external pipe leaks and exterior hose bibbs. When your piping runs deeper than you think, that can be a budget saver. So, if you have pipes or a main shutoff value that extend past your foundation, this option is a great addition to your home warranty coverage.

5. Garage door opener protection

Few things are more frustrating than a garage door opener that won’t work. And if your garage is attached to your house, it can sometimes lock you out (ask anyone who’s had problems with their electrical system after returning from running errands)! Regardless, you always expect your garage door opener to work. When it breaks down, this option can really help.

With garage door opener protection, you get coverage for up to two units. That includes hinges, springs, and remote sending units (but not the door itself).


These five options can give you even more comprehensive coverage on top of your base coverage and homeowners insurance. Even better, these aren’t the only options we offer!
