This will assure you thai an insurance company will supply funds to complete your home if the bnilcl- er goes bankrupt and cannot finish the job. The National Bonn! of Fire Underwriters point out that lhere. are several broad coverages to protect the new home owner.

Every home needs a repair kit, according to Home Demonstration ARent Mrs. Gertrude B. Holirmn, With household equipment high and somewhat scarce, it's Important to make it last as long as possible. Daily care and needed repairs will determine the length and. use ful- ness and service. A small wooden or jneUl kit Icr holding necessary tools and materials [hat almost every household requires to keep up with repairs is one plan. A kitchen cabinet drawer or space on a cabinet or wall shelf may be adequate for most of the tools, perhaps the most important point is gellliifr all ^uch pieces together arid baring them in a known place so they are easy to find. The following tonls will be helpful in making most simple repnrs at home: Screw driver, hammer, ruler, monkey wrench, pliers, brush and ice pick. And you'll want scissors, knife, putty knife, rile, whet stone, oil can. nails and tacks. A small job often requiring the homemaker's attention is the simple repair of leaky faucets.

Replace t h e washer and reassemble in the manner in which parts were removed. If the faucet continues to leak the valve seat may be rou?h and need reaming out to produce smooth] i ess.

In Spring Is Time To Insulate Home Number of Advantages To Getting the Job Done Early in Season A* with most other home Improvements, spring Is the best nine .0 Insulate an existing house. Weather is Ideal, workmen are not rushed, the home-owner will obtain a full season of protection from summer heat, and if a loan is needed the money can be included in a single blanket note covering other spring morlerrnlzation and repair. Any existing house can be completely insulated within a few days by blowing mineral wool into the walls and above the top-floor ceiling. The average loan for such insulation is less than $300. according to the P1IA, and fuel SOVLIIRS usually pay for the insulation within 3 years. No Dirt Or Muss The Insulating process is accomplished without any dirt or muss or interfering with normal family routine. A truck containing packages of loose mineral wool, air compressing machinery, and atr hoses through which the insulation is blown, is parked near the house. Skilled workmen remove a few pieces of siding material at strategic spots and make small holes in the sheathing for insertion of the air hose. Only a few openings are marie at a time, since each space between studs is filled with the mineral wool before moving on to the next. As rapidly as the wall spaces are filled, the holes in the sheathing are closed and the siding v is replaced so skillfully that no trace of the work remains. Remove Hoard If the attic is floored, a few boards are removed so the air hose, which is taken in through a window or ventilating louver, can blow 4" of mineral wool Into nil spaces between joists. If the attic has no floor, the insulation Is merely spread evenly 4" deep In the joist spaces. A finished attic is insulated by removing a few shingles so the blowing hose will'reach all spaces above the ceiling. After the job Is finished the house will be as much as 15 degrees cooler in summer and winter fuel bills will be reduced at, least one-third in most cases. , that order, according to 3 national survey by the Tile Council of America.
