If a company sold me a lifetime home warranty went out of business but then the owner went and opened a new business must he still somehow honor the warranty for my basement system? He now owns a foundation wall support co. but owned a basement waterproofing co. I contacted him but he was a complete jerk and told me not to contact him and that his basement business was now closed. Thanks.
