Cv-Lrisurance Clause Pays Full Fire Loss How much fire insurance should Iw carried has always puzzled the home owner. Tlie problem is more | ncute now than ever before. Most i homes are under-Insured today be- ' cans? replacement cosls have risen ' a:: estimated SO per cent since 19B9. | ! Ir; some cases, homes are insured | for only the amount of the mori- j S.TR». This mean.s the owner has no | promotion in case of loss. To provide complete prelection, fire underwriters have established what the call the "co-insurance I clause." Under it, the owner agrees ' to maintain insurance equal to at t irast BO per cent of the value and i the company agrees to pay in full on any loss. How IMan Works If ;c.« than So per cent is carried, tiie owner must bear a proportionate share of tile loss. For example, if the property is va:i:ed at $10.000, the insured carried at least SB/MO »nd X $4,000 loss occurs, the coii-.pany '.vili pay the entire $4.000. F,:it t! only S6.OOO msiuance is carried on a $10.000 valuation, the cornpanv will pa-' only six-eij;!rs, or 53,000 nn a $l|ofiO.

On the other i toof covering, the hciuhing is laid land, a poor roof ens be the source if continuing expense and trouble. Roofs have three primary specifications: (1) they must be absolutely wlnri and weather tight; 2) they should be highly resistant to fire; and (3) They should be .strong, adequately pitched and drained. • Roofing is available in a wide variety of materials, including as- | be.slos, asphalt, metal, slate and wood shingles, sheet metal, clay tile, tarred felt and gravel, or roll roofinp. Shinplr.s or tiles are generally used on a home. The other materials are largely confined to multi-family buildings, garages and commercial structures.
