Media Release: Service Line Warranties of Canada Protection Partnership with the Municipality of Kincardine

Posted On Friday February 26, 2021

The Municipality of Kincardine Council through LAS/AMO (Local Authority Services/Association of Municipalities of Ontario) has agreed to endorse Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) as an alternative protection program for water and sewer servicing coverages on private property. SLWC approached the Municipality to consider endorsing the program and did so to provide residents comfort the program is reputable and will use local resources. Since 2015, SLWC has partnered with over 50 leading Municipalities and Townships in Ontario to provide repair service plans that offer homeowners peace of mind and convenience.

The SLWC warranty program protects against repairs needed to water and sewer pipes on homeowners’ private property. Repairs to pipes on private property are not covered by the Municipality of Kincardine and may not be covered by basic homeowners’ insurance. Many factors contribute to the life expectancy of a service line or pipe including the age, type of material, soil conditions and installation quality – all factors which are covered through the SLWC protection program. This program is voluntary for homeowners, provided at no cost to the Municipality of Kincardine and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program. If a customer’s water or sewer pipe needs repair, a simple call to the SLWC 24-hour hotline will dispatch a local, licensed contractor familiar with local plumbing code.

Homeowners should consider speaking to their private insurer first to confirm if they currently have similar coverages.

Service Line Warranties of Canada (SLWC) is part of HomeServe USA Corp (HomeServe), a leading provider of home repair solutions serving over 4 million customers across the U.S. and Canada. Founded in 2014, SLWC is the trusted source of utility line protection program in Ontario as recognized by Local Authority Services. Together with HomeServe, SLWC is dedicated to supplying best-in-class repair plans and delivering superior customer service to consumers through over 700 leading Municipality, municipal and utility partners across North America.

Contact information for residents was obtained by SLWC through a 3rd party and not directly from the Municipality of Kincardine. If residents would like to enroll in the program, update their contact information or to be removed from the listing they can call SLWC directly at 1-866-922-9004.
