The village of Richton Park and Service Line Warranties of America are offering the National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program to homeowners.
The program offers voluntary warranty protection at an affordable price for water lines in the event of a failure, according to a news release from the village.
“Homeowners are burdened with many expenses, and providing peace of mind in the event of a service line failure is important since repairs could cost thousands of dollars,” Richton Park Mayor Rick Reinbold said in the release. “This program is not only affordable, but the added convenience factor should be very appealing to busy homeowners.”
The program offers protection against normal wear and tear, which is not covered under most traditional homeowners policies, the release said. If lines break, leak or clog, SLWA will repair the line using local, licensed contractors who are familiar with local code and can ensure a timely response, the release said. This program provides up to $4,000 in coverage with an additional allowance for public street or sidewalk cutting. The program has no annual or lifetime limits, service fees or deductibles, the release said.
