News Release, Town of La Plata

The Town of La Plata, MD joins with Service Line Warranties of America to offer customers service line protection We are pleased to announce a new program to further enhance the Town of La Plata, MD’s customer service culture.  We have entered into a new agreement with Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA), a leading provider of home repair solutions, to provide optional repair service plans to our residential customers. 

The service plans offered to Town of La Plata, MD homeowners through SLWA are affordable solutions to protect them from the cost and inconvenience of home repair emergencies, including water service line leaks on their property/and in-home water line issues.  As you may know, many of our customers become frustrated when they discover a broken water pipe and then learn that the repair is their responsibility.  Homeowners are often unaware these types of repairs are not covered by basic homeowners insurance policies or by us.  The Town of La Plata, MD recognized that one way we could address this problem is to offer an optional service program that would protect our homeowners from the cost and inconvenience of this type of repair. 

The Town of La Plata, MD and SLWA have worked together to tailor the program to meet the needs of our customers.  The marketing, customer service, and repairs using local, licensed, and approved contractors will be managed entirely by SLWA.  What you need to know
