Me: I have a house insured with you, and I need to increase the insured value… we’ve done a little work on it.

Insurance Agent: Okay, it says your house was 950 square feet, has that changed?

Me: Yes, its 1927 sq ft now.

Insurance Agent: And 2 bedrooms, 1 bath?

Me: Actually 3 bedrooms, 2 baths.

Insurance Agent:  Still have aluminum siding?

Me: No it’s all cedar siding now.

Insurance Agent: Same 3-tab roof shingles?

Me: No, they’re new, dimensional shingles.

Insurance Agent: Vinyl windows?

Me: Nope. Aluminum clad.

Insurance Agent: Carpet inside?

Me: Ah, actually… no. It’s mostly hardwood.

Insurance Agent: So… is any part of the house the same?


Me: I think one of the closets is in the same spot.

Insurance Agent: Okay then.

    Good one! I was worried when I saw the post title that something had happened, glad you were just doing yuor due diligence.

    Don’t forget to make sure the livestock barn is covered. And the garage probably needs its coverage increased – especially for the value of the bathroom tile!
