A recent emphasis on waste management in SoutheCalifornia has propelled smart disposal habits to the forefront and Mercury’s partnership with Roof Rx is to better protect both homeowner property and the environment. On average, roofs can last more than 30 years, however only a certain portion make it halfway through their life cycle. With most homes having a rooftop weighing approximately 6,000 pounds, an unnecessary re-roof quickly turns into a substantial amount of landfill trash.
“We’re creating so much waste that takes a very long time to breakdown in our landfills,” said Mercury Insurance Product Manager for Homeowners.
Roof Rx inspections are non-invasive (drone flights require FAA approval and clearance, some exceptions may apply) and come with detailed aerial imagery. A technician will diagnose the appropriate level of repairs that may be needed, which can include anything from minor shingle replacements to an entirely new roof.
New, existing and returning SoutheCalifornia Mercury homeowner policyholders have multiple ways to protect their home:
- Inspection only services: After an instant rebate from Mercury, policyholders will pay just
$25.00for a roof inspection (a significant savings from the retail price of $99.00). If repairs are needed and completed with Roof Rx, Mercury policyholders are credited the $25inspection fee towards the repair. If recommended repairs are completed by Roof Rx, the insured will receive a one-year total roof warranty valued at $329.00at no charge.
- Inspection with preventative maintenance: Policyholders receive an instant rebate from Mercury and pay only
$99.00for the inspection and basic preventative services-specifically, the sealing of pipe vents on the roof (a common source of roof leaks)-which at retail costs $249.00. If additional repairs are needed and completed by Roof Rx, the policyholder will be credited the $25.00inspection fee. This service comes with a one-year total roof warranty valued at $329.00at no additional charge.
“We’re excited to partner with Mercury and admire the courage in their mission to find smarter ways to give back to their policyholders while protecting the environment. Roof Rx and its associates are proud to assist Mercury customers with their home maintenance needs in a sustainable , cost-effect manner,” said
Roof Rx inspections during the past 12 months revealed:
- Less than 2% of rooftops inspected by Roof Rx were deemed unserviceable and required re-roofing.
- Approximately 55% only required component flashing maintenance.
