If I use my own contractor for a inspection or repair, will my GEM and home advocate membership still cover it?

Only work completed by Gem or a Gem and Home Advocate service provider is covered under your Gem and Home Advocate membership. You must contact Gem to have work performed under your membership.

Does GEM need to inspect my home before I become a home advocate member?

Nope! You can become a member today by signing up online or calling us at (833) 222-2953, or you can join during any service visit when one of our technicians is in your home – no home inspection required. If you join online or over the phone, our technician will take a quick inventory of your home systems during your first maintenance inspection – this helps us make sure that we have the right parts and tools on our truck whenever we visit your home, so we can solve your home service needs faster.
