Endurance Home Warranty Coverage
Endurance Home Warranty offers 3 coverage plans: Bronze, Gold, and Platinum.
Bronze, which is the entry-level package, covers smaller and medium-sized household appliances, such as dishwashers, refrigerators, washers and dryers and more. Gold covers larger, and often built-in items. Such items include air conditioning and heating units, as well as electrical and plumbing systems. The platinum tier offers all of these in one comprehensive package, so it’s not surprising that it is also Endurance Home Warranty’s most popular package.
In addition to these standard packages, there are extra items for which a warranty can be purchased. Items such as a pool, spa, or lighting fixtures are not included in the Bronze, Gold or Platinum packages, but can be purchased as add-ons separately to create the perfect plan that fits your needs.
Additional coverage (optional)
Pool, central vacuum, second refrigerator, sump pump, well pump, limited roof leak, stand alone freezer, lawn sprinkler system, septic system, ice maker (in refrigerator), plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, additional AC unit, additional heating, additional furnace, additional water heater, spa.

Packages, Plans and Prices
Plans and prices depend on the specific package chosen, as well as the geographical location of the home for which the plan is purchased.
Pricing ranges from $329 for the appliance-based Bronze package, to $399 for the more comprehensive Platinum package. Limited time specials and other deals run from time to time that offer customers one free month when buying a new contract.
Due to the fact that quotes are not instantaneous, you will have to either fill out a contact form on the website and wait to be contacted, or speak to a customer service representative via phone, in order to know your exact costs and whether any deals are running at the time.
Terms and Conditions
Endurance Home Warranty does not share its terms and conditions on its website, which is slightly alarming for users that want to know this information before purchasing a plan — only once you have purchased a contract will you be able to look more deeply into the actual terms and conditions.
The company does openly provide a number of caveats on its website, for example: “Endurance Home Warranty offers service contracts which are not warranties. Terms and conditions apply. See contract for limitations and specifics on response times. Endurance Home Warranty reserves the right to offer cash back in lieu of repair or replacement in the amount of our actual cost, which at times may be less than retail, to repair or replace any covered system, component, or appliance.”
Endurance Home Warranty offers a convenient function on its website that enables you to easily book contractors from your computer, giving you the chance to book a contractor at a time and date that is most convenient for you and your schedule. The company guarantees that only top contractors are referred.
The company offers a call center hotline as well as a company email address to contact. The wait is approximately 1 minute before you are put through to a representative who is able to confidently answer your questions. The menus are clear (whether it’s the claims, sales, billing or another department) and navigation is simple.
Emails are answered relatively promptly, however given the limited functionality of the website, we suggest you call directly.
Endurance Home Warranty is not the biggest home warranty company, and its website does not inspire confidence as many links are not working and not enough information is provided. Calls were answered promptly however, and all questions were dealt with professionally.
Marketing is primarily by word-of-mouth, so if you know someone who is happy with the service they received from Endurance Home Warranty, the deals seem good and legitimate. Otherwise, you might be better off going with one of the bigger players in the industry.
