Do-It-Yourself Home Improvement provides everything you need to know about home maintenance, repair, and improvement, from changing a fuse to putting up a wall, from fixing a dripping faucet to replacing a bathroom. The book starts with home assessment, showing how to conduct routine maintenance checks inside and out and how to plan projects, taking you through the tools and materials for each task. Each section provides an overview of a specific part of the house or area of improvement, and contains a preparation section that talks you through all your options, both structural and decorative.

The core of the book consists of step-by-step spreads that lead you through a huge range of DIY tasks, from simple repairs and improvements to more complex projects for experienced DIYers. Most sections contain annotated overviews of house construction and systems.

Throughout, the book highlights safety issues, and looks at how you can make your home more secure and safe. And special Problem Solver spreads give easy-to-access, quick-fix solutions to common, one-off repair and maintenance jobs.
