LOS ANGELES, CA. (June 21, 2022) – Mercury Insurance (NYSE: MCY) today announced an industry-first partnership with Roof Rx, a home service company focused on providing high-quality repair solutions to extend the life of home roofs, to new and existing home policyholders. These Roof Rx inspections will include an advanced drone technology service with expert analysis to assess the current condition of a home’s roof.

The recent focus on waste management in Southern California has propelled smart disposal habits to the fore and Mercury’s partnership with Roof Rx aims to better protect both homeowners’ property and the environment. . On average, roofs can last more than 30 years, but only a certain part reaches halfway through their life cycle. With most homes having a roof weighing around 6,000 pounds, unnecessary re-roofing quickly turns into a significant amount of landfill waste.

“We create so much waste that takes a very long time to break down in our landfills,” said the Mercury Homeowners Insurance Product Manager. Adam Bakonis. “Too many simple roof repairs turn into complete re-roofing and it’s bad for homeowners’ wallets and bad for the planet. Mercury Insurance takes an environmentally responsible stance by identifying ways to better protect policyholders’ assets, while leaving a kinder footprint on the earth.”

Roof Rx inspections are non-invasive (drone flights require FAA approval and authorization, some exceptions may apply) and are accompanied by detailed aerial imagery. A technician will diagnose the appropriate level of repairs that might be needed, which can include anything from minor shingle replacements to a completely new roof.

New, existing and returning SoutheCalifornia Mercury home insurance policyholders have several ways to protect their home:

  • Inspection services only: After an instant rebate from Mercury, policyholders will only pay $25.00 for a roof inspection (a significant saving over the retail price of $99.00). If repairs are needed and performed with Roof Rx, Mercury policyholders are credited with the $25 inspection costs for the repair. If the recommended repairs are carried out by Roof Rx, the insured will receive a full one-year warranty on the roof worth $329.00free.
  • Inspection with preventive maintenance: Policyholders receive an instant discount from Mercury and only pay $99.00 for inspection and basic preventative services – specifically, sealing roof pipe vents (a common source of roof leaks) – which at retail $249.00. If additional repairs are required and carried out by Roof Rx, the policyholder will be credited with the $25.00 inspection fees. This service is backed by a full one-year roof warranty worth $329.00no additional cost.

“We are thrilled to partner with Mercury and admire the courage of their mission to find smarter ways to give back to their policyholders while protecting the environment. Roof Rx and its associates are proud to help Mercury customers to meet their home maintenance needs in a sustainable, cost-effective way,” said Eduardo GuerraCEO of Roof Rx, Inc. “Your roof is an essential asset in protecting your family and your property – in partnership with Mercury Insurance is a natural fit for us. We both want to protect homeowners and the environment, and now our partnership takes that to the next level.”

Roof Rx inspections over the past 12 months have revealed:

  • Less than 2% of roofs inspected by Roof Rx were deemed unusable and required re-roofing.
  • Approximately 55% required only component flashing maintenance.
