Denver, CO (PressExposure) January 20, 2012 -- 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW®), the industry leader in home warranties, proudly announces the launch of their Green Advantage Warranty, which now offers the broadest coverage available for new construction green building practices, filling a critical gap for builders looking for leading protection within this niche.
The 2-10 HBW Green Advantage Warranty is offered to certified green builders only, meaning that they must build their homes to comply with either Energy Star, National Green Building Standard (NGBS), or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. Enrolling a home in the Green Advantage Warranty rewards builders who have gone the extra mile to satisfy home buyers' desire for efficient eco-friendly homes and to meet the high standards required to achieve certification. The Green Advantage Warranty offers builders another opportunity to differentiate their homes from the competition and existing housing stock.
Included with the Green Advantage Warranty are repairs and replacements with approved contractors and like-kind Energy Star-certified products and appliances. In addition, coverage includes like-kind replacement of green-labeled carpets and pads, engineered wood products, sustainably harvested lumber, low/no emission finishes, and recycled products, and repairs are always in accordance with the applicable national certification standard. 2-10 HBW's Green Advantage Warranty is an added product to the company's existing leading home warranty packages, including the 1-2-10 and 10-year only offerings for new construction home builders. 2-10 HBW's 10-year only structural warranty offers the most comprehensive, insurance-backed structural warranty defect coverage on the market. Under the 1-2-10 warranty, one-year surety coverage of workmanship and materials and two-year surety coverage on systems are added, increasing home buyers' peace of mind. Builders and buyers can buy confidently, knowing the industry's leading home warranty company has them covered.
"With one in four homes now certified by green building standards, it is clear that home buyers want a more eco-friendly home, and that offering warranty protection that targets these values offers builders a clear competitive edge," said Scott Cromie, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. "Our new Green Advantage Warranty represents 2-10 HBW's commitment to greener business practices, and celebrates the home builders and home buyers who want a greener home and lifestyle. We're proud to offer a product that meets these standards, while continuing to provide the same leading, trusted protection our company stands behind."
Enrolling in the 2-10 HBW Green Advantage Warranty, offered at a minimal additional fee over the standard rate, is as simple as checking a box next to the certification standard on 2-10 HBW's Home Enrollment Application.
