In no event, however, shall Insurers also be liable under this extra expense section for Loss of Income, nor for the cost of repairing or replacing any property that has been damaged or destroyed, except cost in excess of the normal cost of such repair or replacements necessarily incurred for the purpose of reducing the total amount of extra expense.
