IS YOUR PROPERTY
The Insurance Companies
suggest to their agents that
all buildings should be insur-
ed at their PRESENT RE
PLACEMENT VALUES and
not what they cost years ago.
Building costs have great- J
ly increased and many prop
erty owners are now carrying
only 40 or 50 per cent of the
insurable value on their home
or business building.
Let us write additional in
surance for you now.
Don't wait until a fire oc
curs and then regret that you
had only half enough insur
ance to cover your loss.
Call us and we will be glad
to tell you how much insur
ance you should carry.
