  New Partner Launch Press Release

 Service Line Protection Available for City of Conrad-MT Homeowners



Conrad, MT – May 24, 2019- The City of Conrad has partnered with Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA) to offer protection for homeowners for the WSL/IPD protection program. The coverage is voluntary and available at affordable monthly or annual prices. Founded in 2003, SLWA has partnered with over 400 leading cities and municipalities in the US to provide repair service plans that offer peace of mind and convenience.

“Many homeowners do not know that damage to the service lines on their property is their responsibility to repair,” said Dave Zimbelman, Public Works Director. “In the event of a service line emergency, the homeowner is responsible for scheduling the repair and covering the associated cost. As the City of Conrad homes age along with the infrastructure serving them, SLWA repair plans provide homeowners with an optional peace of mind solution so they can be better prepared in the event of these unexpected repairs.”

The SLWA Service Line Warranty Program protects against damage to pipes on homeowners’ property. Repairs to these pipes are not covered by basic homeowners insurance or by the City of Conrad. If a customer’s line is in need of repair, a simple call to the SLWA 24-hour hotline will dispatch a local, licensed contractor familiar with local code. There are no service fees or deductibles. Many factors contribute to the life expectancy of a service line including the age, type of piping material, soil conditions and installation quality - all factors which are covered through the SLWA protection program. This program is voluntary for homeowners and provided at no cost to the City of Conrad and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program.

“Our service plans not only cover the cost of the repair; they also provide homeowners with reputable, local contractors who will do the best possible job,” said John Kitzie, CEO of SLWA parent HomeServe USA. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the City of Conrad and look forward to the opportunity to provide City of Conrad homeowners with the assistance they need when faced with a home repair emergency.”

SLWA has been recognized as the nation's largest and most trusted source of utility line plans endorsed by the National League of Cities (NLC). The company is committed to customer service, ethical marketing practices and maintaining an A+ accredited rating with the Better Business Bureau. For questions about this service, or to enroll, please contact SLWA at 866-922-9006 or visit www.slwofa.com.
