Public Service Announcement from Met Warranty


Nashville, TN, 22 February 2006 – Although some states can expect winter to stay around for a little longer, most states are putting the season behind them and preparing for spring.

“Even if your area of the country doesn’t get snow, all parts of the country go through some kind of climate change between November and March,” says Richard Janzen, CEO of Met Warranty. “Since no state is immune to temperature change or heavy rainfall associated with spring, Met Warranty is offering this public service announcement to all home owners.”

Met Warranty suggests that now is the best time to check your home to make sure you’ll stay dry and comfortable over the next few months. They offer a few tips to help you do just that. For example:

· Check the grading around your home to make sure that it slopes away from your house and not toward it. After a heavy rain, inspect your home to find out where water is pooling and improve the grading and drainage in that area.

· Inspect your trees to make sure that the root systems will not be encroaching close to your house. Roots from trees are often as large and wide as the leaf system above ground, so consider what will happen in the future as well as immediate threats. But don’t cut down your trees, have a professional dig them up and move them. It’s better for the environment!

· Check your roof to make sure the shingles are in good shape. If they’re not in good shape, repair them as soon as possible or just patch them up as best as you can to last through the rainfall of spring. Then, when summer comes, get those shingles repaired.

· Inspect your eaves. Most people clean it in the fall, but if you haven’t yet, you’ll want to do that before spring rains fill it with water.

· Check your fence to make sure that it still does its job in spite of the beating it takes from snow, rain, or high winds.

What does grading, trees, rooftops, eaves, and fences have to do with home warranties? “Absolutely nothing,” exclaims Janzen, whose company’s website is “In fact, we don’t even cover them!” he laughs. “We truly want people to enjoy their homes. That’s something different about our company: We see ourselves as a homeowner’s consultant rather than a company that sells something. We’ve got a unique ‘Design-A-Plan’ so homeowners can create custom-made home warranties. We’ve got a whitepaper to help people understand the home warranty industry. We’ve got helpful information and even a spot to do due diligence on our site. We want home owners to be informed, to make good decisions, and to enjoy their homes. That’s what Met Warranty is all about.”

So if you want to enjoy your home a little longer, and in spite of the anticipated spring weather, take a moment right now to inspect the outside of your home. You’ll enjoy living in your home a lot more!
