Few states in the United States are as well-known around the world as California. Home of Hollywood, the Beach Boys, and stunning vistas from ocean to mountains, it’s truly one-of-a-kind. But it shares one thing with every other state… aging infrastructure that can lead to unforeseen damages to service lines for residents. That’s why so many communities throughout California have turned to HomeServe programs to help their residents in their times of need.
Most homeowners don’t realize they are responsible for the water and sewer lines from the street to their meter, and are shocked to find they must pay to repair damage caused by age, tree roots, and other issues. Planning ahead and having a warranty program in place to cover these costs can make all the difference when an unexpected emergency occurs.
In fact, in California we have:
- Over 448,000 Active Water-Related Protection Plans;
- Saved homeowners in your state over $32.8 million in water-related costs since 2017.
Nationally, we have saved customers over $1.1 billion over the past three years.
HomeServe Cares Foundation
At HomeServe, caring is in the fabric of our corporate culture. Which is why we are committed to putting people at the heart of everything we do, and that includes our corporate social responsibility. We actively support and care for People, Veterans, the Common Good and Communities, both locally and nationwide with the HomeServe Cares Foundation.

- “We could hear water running but could not find it. Had very wet soil at the front of house. Leak was in crawl space at the back of the house with very difficult access. Service tech found the leak while crawling through mud & standing water. He fixed the leak by installing a coupling and removing the fitting. He was fast, very polite and cleaned up areas where he was working. Showed me pictures of the leaking pipe. Very professional.” – Henry B., Cupertino, CA
- “The worker who responded did a very thorough job of cleaning out my sewer pipes. Not only did he clear the pipes from the house to the main sewer, he wasn’t satisfied with the way the water was discharging, and so also cleaned out the part of the pipe under the house. Travis Plumbing has responded to previous problems at my home and has always done a very good job.” – Robert W., Livermore, CA
- “I am SO happy I purchased this insurance. I called on a Sunday morning after discovering that something was leaking under the crawlspace of my house. The employee at HomeServe was super friendly and helpful and addressed any questions or concerns that I had. That same day a plumber showed up at my house to fix the leak. The plumber was great! He was very professional and courteous and when he left I felt so relieved that our leak problem was solved. I thought it was going to be a hassle and way worse than it was. I recommend this insurance to everyone, it makes home ownership so easy!” – Amber M, Sunland, CA
- “One call and the repair was set up. The repairmen were fast and knowledgeable. Glad I had the insurance.” – Christopher S., Los Gatos, CA
