iStock_000001754147MediumAt Service Line Warranties of Canada, customer service and timely repairs are our top priorities. As a result, we only use licensed, local contractors within your city who are able to respond to claims quickly and make the necessary repairs.

Every contractor goes through a rigorous business and background check by a third-party vendor to ensure they have the necessary licenses, registrations and knowledge to perform the work. This ensures you receive the highest level of customer service with each and every repair.

Local contractors are the key to the program’s success because they are familiar with local code and can respond to claims quickly. Many times, our plumbers already have a relationship with the customers from previous plumbing projects.

Your satisfaction is our number one priority, so we make sure the person that knocks on your door is capable to do the job right the first time, every time.
