    Why would you want a duplicate page? What purpose does that serve?

    I've never ran any test on this, but it's not that uncommon for the homepage to have two URLs. It's not optimal, but probably not the most important thing to take care of. I'm pretty sure that Google knows that this happens.

    If you can't remove the page/URL/link, can you point the canonical to the root? That way you'd instruct Google that it's the same exact page, and they don't need to index the copy.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    I'm wondering that you created another home page in which is duplicate and redundant because example(dot)com is already your home page. I think you are the one creating the errors in the website try to consult a well experienced SEO.

    You can redirect your home page to your main website using temporary or permanent redirection instruction.
    or you can use canonical tag for home page.
    or you can remove home page and consider only main page for all the SEO activities.

    Search engines would consider them as two separate and distinct pages (and since you mentioned that they are both essentially the home page, search engines would see this as duplicate pages) which is kinda bad while also confusing your visitors.

    The thing to do is really what wholeheartmarketing and nettiapina mentioned above - 301 redirects and set your canonicals to consolidate your homepage. This would help your SEO, ease your visitors, and help your efforts in the long run.
