Synopsis: 50 WAYS TO KEEP THE PLUMBER, THE CARPENTER, AND THE BILLS AWAY
A small investment in knowledge, time, and tools today can save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars in the years to come. The key is to catch minor, easy-to-fix problems before they turn into major, costly headaches. Bruce Johnson, America's #1 do-it-yourself expert, takes you step-by-step through every area and aspect of your home, telling you exactly how to spot trouble and how to repair it--easily, quickly, and safely. You can't afford not to learn these fifty simple projects that any homeowner can do:
#1 Assemble a basic home inspection and repair kit
#7 Patch and replace damaged shingles on your roof
#18 Tuckpoint brick walls to keep them sound and attractive
#22 Check the lay of your land to keep the basement dry
#28 Protect your home's deck against rot and decay
#33 Prevent ice dams and rotting rafters
#41 Map out your electrical system
#45 Stop squeaky floors and stairs
It sounds simple...and it is!
50 SIMPLE WAYS TO SAVE YOUR HOUSE.

From Booklist: See a title like this, and the paranoid possibilities proliferate. Save my house? From what? Fire? Mud slides? Bogeypersons? Well, none of the above. This is another home-improvement guide, but one focused not so much on sprucing up the old homestead as on heading off serious damage that can occur largely unseen and unnoted until things (like porches) start to fall off, necessitating big-money repairs and indicating that perhaps an ounce of prevention was in order. Johnson recommends and describes home inspection for diagnosing developing trouble as well as ways to repair things before they become serious. On problems ranging from dampness accumulating under the porch to pesky and intrusive tree branches, he gives cogent advice clearly and accompanies it with instructive illustrations and a handy glossary. His most salient points are indicated by the last three chapter titles: "Don't Burn Down What You Just Fixed Up," "Think like a Burglar," and "Learn How to Choose a Contractor." Words to live by, indeed. Mike Tribby
