Ohio Partnerships

The Buckeye State is diverse in so many ways; from its big cities to its rolling farmland, from its arts and music scenes to the internationally-known companies that call Ohio home. But it shares one thing with every other state… aging infrastructure that can lead to unforseen damages to service lines for residents. That’s why so many communities throughout Ohio have turned to the NLC Service Line Program by HomeServe to help their residents in their times of need.

Most homeowners don’t realize they are responsible for the water and sewer lines from the street to their meter, and are shocked to find they must pay to repair damage caused by age, tree roots, and other issues. Planning ahead and having a warranty program in place to cover these costs can make all the difference when an unexpected emergency occurs.

In fact, in Ohio we have:

  • A Partnership with the Ohio Municipal League;
  • 25 Municipal and Water Utility Partners;
  • Over 300,000 Active Water-Related Protection Plans;
  • Over 30,000 Completed Emergency Home Repairs in 2019.

We saved homeowners in your state over $12 million in water-related costs since 2017.

HomeServe Cares Foundation

At HomeServe, caring is in the fabric of our corporate culture. Which is why we are committed to putting people at the heart of everything we do, and that includes our corporate social responsibility. We actively support and care for People, Veterans, the Common Good and Communities, both locally and nationwide with the HomeServe Cares Foundation.
