FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
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.
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
$25.00for 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 $25inspection 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
$99.00for 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 $25.00inspection 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
Roof Rx inspections over the past 12 months have revealed:
