If they are anything like auto extended warrantees it's usually BS and they will fight you tooth and nail for a pay-out just like any insurance company. Most extended warrantees are done by a third party. I think the best thing you could do is to get a very qualified surveyor out prior to purchase, you'll eliminate many headaches that way.

That's the best advice you can get right there.
