First American Home Warranty Reviews Page 6
As a First American client for more than a decade now, I’ve had my share of service calls – broken water heaters, frozen pipes, clogged drains. You name it, my house has had it. Thank goodness First American has been there for us all those years. They’ve made home maintenance and repair a lot less complicated.James L. Phoenix, AZ
Probably one of the worst customer service experiences I've ever had. Started a service request November 11th, 2019 for upstairs heat pump not working. February 21st, 2020, still not repaired and not working. Can't ever speak to a supervisor or management. Was told by the first contractor that they replaced the compressor in the outside unit. Found out it was NEVER touched, asked for a second opinion, but the new contractor was too high in pricing for their liking.
Now being told that I have to let the first vendor(who fraudulently filed a claim for a repair and lied to me and FAHW) return to complete a repair, or do a buyout for only $738.15. Someone from FAHW should have called me to apologize and make things right, not me having to call First American! Bottom line is, will not renew my contract, and would NEVER recommend this company to anyone ever!James L. ANDERSON, SC
My AC was not fixed. My AC wasn’t cooling and first American warranty is saying is not covered under warranty since it has zoning for upstairs and downstairs. When I paid $610 on Nov 2019 they were eager to take the money and assured me AC and heating system was covered.
Now that I need them they come up with excuses for not covering it. They said it cost over $5000 to be fix. What waste of $610 this company took from me. I think people should forget about warranty companies. They will not fix any high dollars items. Please do not use this company.Jaleh D. Conroe, TX
One of the biggest differences between First American and other home warranty companies is that the online claiming tool. It’s tough enough to look for people who would do a good job at home repair and the ability to file a warranty claim online just makes everything a lot more convenient.Kate A. Phoenix, AZ
Before getting a home warranty, I had a hard time getting contractors to fix anything. Now that we have First American, we just make a call and let them do the rest, from scheduling the house visit to reimbursing the contractor. It just doesn’t save time; it also saves money.Dina R. Phoenix, AZ
Filing claims for home warranties is a very tedious task. I need to get my documents together and talk to different people. But it’s less of a pain with First American Home Warranty. They have someone who will guide you through the process and make sure that you do everything the right way.Raymond E. Phoenix, AZ
I would never buy from these crooks. They don’t want to fix covered items because they claim they are too expensive. What’s the point of the warranty then? I called in and got a middle eastern rep and asked for a supervisor and she said she doesn’t know who that is or what any of the supervisors names are. I don’t know if she didn’t understand English or she was just stupid.
I wrote a bad review on another site and they said they need more info, which I gave them. I provided that and never heard back from them. They are the worst company and contract with shoddy companies that don’t want to do the work. Find a company that cares about customer service, because this company sure doesn’t.Pamela T.

I have been trying to get my dishwasher fixed for almost 3 months. First American assigned me a contractor that never answers the phone or shows up. First American refused to give me a new contractor. They are supposed to be replacing my dishwasher soon. I put in my first service call on 11/2/19 and it's now 1/26/2020. I will never purchase First American again.Shauna K. Tampa, FL
Contractors First American (FA) use typically have bad reviews on Yelp, Angies List and Home Advisor. You have no say in the contractor selection. Dialogue is through FA private message system and not user friendly. Customer Service is horrific and escalation is problematic at best. I wasted weeks trying to get my heater fixed! I got this warranty through my home purchase, I will not renew when due!Kirk N. Long Beach, CA
I had an issue with scheduling a repair call with First American, mostly because I travel for work a lot and the repair people they send don’t work on weekends. But when we were able to agree to a time, their people showed up and did what they had to do.Hilda C. Phoenix, AZ
