Frontdoor Launches Its Reinvention of the Home Service Plan

Frontdoor Premium is the most comprehensive plan offered in the Frontdoor app

Frontdoor, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTDR), the nation’s leading provider of home service plans with about two million members, today announced that Frontdoor Premium – as the next evolution of the Frontdoor app – is now available in select markets.

“Frontdoor Premium is our reinvention of the traditional home service plan,” said Bill Cobb, Frontdoor chairman and CEO. “Premium is for the homeowner who wants it all – coverage for repairs, real-time advice, maintenance services, and exclusive discounts. With a membership, they get a 12-month service agreement, new features and streamlined processes for both members and contractors – all through the convenience of the Frontdoor app.”

With Premium, members get all the benefits of Frontdoor Prime (3 video chat sessions with our Experts, exclusive discounts on heating and air conditioning systems, and discounts and special pricing for home products and services), plus these additional benefits*:

  • An annual membership plan
  • Coverage on appliances, electrical, and plumbing to make dealing with breakdowns easy
  • The option to add coverage for HVAC, roof leak repairs, and pool & built-in spa equipment
  • A flat service fee ($100) for covered appliance, electrical, and plumbing repairs
  • Repair the item or pay the member $500 ($1,000 for optional HVAC)
  • Maintenance service options like carpet cleaning, HVAC tune-ups, and more for a flat service fee of $100
  • Ability to place and track service requests directly in the app
  • Access to vetted Pros from our network for service requests, so members don’t have to haggle, perform research or other hassles

“From now through July 25, we are offering an introductory price of $29 per month for 12 months,” Cobb said. “The breadth of coverage homeowners get at this price is an exceptional deal for protecting their most valuable asset, their home.”

Frontdoor Premium is currently available in about half of the markets in the U.S., with plans to rapidly expand coverage later this year.

The Frontdoor app is available to download now on iPhone and Android. Since the app was launched April 11, it has been downloaded more than 500,000 times. For more information about the app, please visit
