NORTH LAS VEGAS –
North Las Vegas officials are pleased to announce a partnership with Service Line Warranties of America to offer the National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program to homeowners.
The NLC Service Line Warranty Program offers voluntary warranty protection at an affordable price for sewer lines in the event of a failure.
Residents will soon receive a letter in the mail with details about the program.
“Homeowners are burdened with many expenses, and providing peace of mind in the event of a service line failure could benefit residents who opt to participate in the program,” Interim City Manager Jeff Buchanan said.
The NLC Service Line Warranty Program offers protection against normal wear and tear, which is not covered under most traditional homeowners policies. If lines break, leak or clog – SLWA will repair the line using local, licensed contractors who are familiar with local code and can ensure a timely response.
The program provides up to $4,000 in coverage with an additional allowance for public street or sidewalk cutting. Additionally, the program has no annual or lifetime limits, service fees or deductibles.
"Many homeowners believe their pipes will last forever, but that’s simply not the case,” said Qiong Liu, North Las Vegas Director of Public Works. “Many factors beyond the life expectancy of the pipe can contribute to a failure, including tree root intrusion, ground shifting and weather – all factors which are covered through this program.”
Under the program, SLWA will pay the city a license fee based on revenue from the program and a brand fee of about $27,000 over three years. This program is offered at no cost to the City and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program.
“We are pleased to partner with the City of North Las Vegas to offer our service,” said Brad Carmichael, Vice President of Business Development for SLWA. “SLWA provides first-class customer service with a 24/7 repair line and the use of licensed and thoroughly researched local contractors – keeping dollars in the local economy.”
