Maintenance and Repairs, Home Warranty

There are so many rewards to owning your home. There are also so many things to maintain once you do; like the air conditioning, heating system, refrigerator, plumbing, washer/dryer...you get the idea.

At Cinch, we help you enjoy your home to the fullest, even when appliances or systems fail. And while there are countless benefits to protecting your home with one of our plans, these three cover just about everything you need to be convinced.

1. “It’s HOW much to fix?”

According to a nationwide study by Clientize.com, 65% of homeowners who faced a repair or replacement in the previous year shelled out more than $840 on average to repair the system or item and more than $1,200 to replace it. That’s just for one system or appliance. Most homeowners will tell you the moment one thing goes, two or three more seem to follow. A blown A/C compressor; damaged refrigerator computer panel or water line break could set you back close to a thousand dollars each. What if they all hit in the same 6-12 months?

Home protection plans prevent a devastating financial hit. With the benefits of a Cinch home protection plan, you pay just a small service call fee per visit plus a small monthly payment. Regardless of whether 2 or 10 covered systems break. That’s far less than the high costs you would typically pay for parts and labor without a warranty.

2. “There are more than 250 listings here: who do we call?”

Unless you have trusted plumbers, electricians, HVAC techs and appliance specialists on your speed dial, chances are, you’ll be stuck searching hundreds of look-alike listings at the worst time, like when your food is spoiling, your toilets are clogged or your family is shivering in a mid-winter snowstorm. And if the problem occurs on a weekend or holiday, finding anyone to answer your call just got much harder.

Home protection plans save you time and deliver service when you need it. Period. Benefits from Cinch plans include one toll-free number answered by a U.S.-based team member 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We send out a qualified service partner to your home as soon as possible to repair or replace your covered appliance or system to get your home back to normal quickly.

3. “I have no clue if he can do the job: does he need a license? Does he have the right training?”

Navigating the world of repair companies can be a minefield. Some are not insured or properly licensed and others don’t have the expertise you need. And you usually won’t find out until it’s too late.

Cinch protection assures you trust and peace of mind. Cinch prescreens all providers to make sure they have the expertise needed. We check to ensure that any required licenses are active and that adequate insurance is maintained. And we provide a 180-Day Workmanship Guarantee so if the problem continues, we come back and repair it.

There’s no better time to start protecting your home, than before a problem pops up. Get a comprehensive, low-cost home protection plan from Cinch Home Services.
