Homeowners report spending over $44 billion repairing or replacing damaged outdoor products, yet less than 10% are aware protection plans can cover outdoor furniture
SAN FRANCISCO , Sept. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As the summer season draws to a close, millions of Americans are taking stock of the cost of outdoor living, according to a new survey by Allstate Protection Plans. It found that 88% of homeowners own outdoor products such as grills, patio furniture, security cameras, leaf blowers, and mowers, and two-thirds have suffered damage to one or more of these products in the last year.
In addition, the survey revealed:
While households are used to protecting items and electronics inside a home, few are aware protection plans can cover outdoor furniture and gear as well. In fact, 54% of damaged outdoor products are immediately replaced rather than repaired.
"We were surprised to find out just how few people knew that outdoor items can be covered by protection plans when compared to other products they buy. And we were surprised by the enormous cost we're paying when things go wrong or accidents happen outside," said Jason Siciliano , vice president and global creative director at Allstate Protection Plans. "Our first instinct is to buy a replacement item instead of repairing what we have, which comes at a cost to our wallets and the environment. With this study, we're hoping to raise awareness of protection plans for outdoor products so that people can enjoy their outdoor gear for many years to come."
