This is a wide-ranging guide to home repairs written for the homeowner with limited do-it-yourself experience. It begins with the essentials of tool selection and then provides up-to-date coverage of construction materials and hardware items. Much of the remainder of the book is divided evenly between interior and exterior projects with briefer--but still valuable--coverage accorded basic plumbing, heating, and electrical repairs. The book also touches on less commonplace topics such as steel stud construction, pressed metal ceilings, and various home security products. The reassuringly written text takes pains to identify work that is best left to the more highly skilled. The many simple color drawings make the narrative descriptions especially easy to follow. Recommended for most public libraries.
