NPR's Noah Adams talks to personal finance commentator Michelle Singletary about the right time to make claims on a homeowners insurance policy — and whether homeowners should pay for repairs themselves, to avoid the possibility of future premium hikes. Singletary writes the syndicated column "The Color of Money" for The Washington Post, and is the author of 7 Money Mantras for a Richer Life.
