So, when you sell/buy a house nowadays, it is apparently customary for the seller to purchase a 1 year home warranty. We bought one for the folks who bought our house, the seller of our new home bought one for us.
Haven't had any need to use the warranty until now.
We have an outbuilding/barn/garage; basically my man-space. The electric out there worked perfectly fine for the past 8 months, but has now pretty much stopped working (getting enough to turn on a few lights, but not enough to run garage door openers, power tools under much load, etc.). I have someone coming out to look at it that will report back to the warranty company. They don't work directly for the company, more of a sub-contractor. I'm pretty sure the main line running underground from house to building has gone bad or is damaged and this will be a couple grand to have replaced.
Doing a bit of internet research, it appears that these home warranty operations (or at least the one we have) are pretty much a scam. They will deny everything until you put up a massive fight. Then they might agree to pay half.
All that being said, does anyone have good or bad experiences with a claim with a home warranty company? Am I in for a fight?
