PAGE TWO K0880TH COUNTY AQVANOE. ALGOm m... Goole*. For Summer Comfort When Insulated 'With JOHNS-MANVILLE This ideal insulation—as effective as 11 feet, of solid stone— can be placed in the hollow walls and attic spaces of your home quickly and easily, making your home just as comfortable as if It had been insulated when It wns built. Practically every house is built with hollow walls. Outside, a layer of sheathing: covered with clapboards, shingles, brick, or stucco. Inside, a thin layer of plaster and lath. Between the two layers, a space filled with circulating air — carrying heat from one layer to the other. Overhead is another thin layer of lath and plaster — then the air in the attic—then the roof. Heat leaks right, through the walls and the roof. In winter, it leaks out; your furnace heats the outdoor air. In summer, the heat leaks in; the sun warms the rooms you live in. The chances are that you are paying for insulation now—without getting it. The extra money you are putting into fuel hills would pay—over a few years—for insulating your home. WHY NOT GET WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR? Home insulation is the only ho.ne improvement that involves no expense for operation, upkeep, or repairs. It cannot rot, rust, or deteriorate in any way. It lasts as long as your house. The cost is based upon the amount of material and labor needed to insulate your house. Each insulation job is individual, according to the requirements of the individual home. ~ A survey of your house, by a competent Johns-Manville Home Insulation man, will determine promptly and 'accurately what should be done to give your home the comfort of modern insulation.
