Got a problem with grout? Open The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair (to page 98) and watch your tiling worries dissolve before the simple beauty of photography. Black & Decker has anticipated your every question and problem with interior, exterior, and home systems repairs, and detailed the solutions in just over 500 pages. In no other human endeavor is a visual guide so important as home repair (well, maybe brain surgery), so this is a crucial aid to the handyperson. Easy-to-find sections on floors, insulation, roofing, chimneys, water heaters, wall switches, air conditioning, and much more are well-designed, brilliantly illustrated, and carefully outlined with step-by-step instructions from masters. The photos in particular are extremely valuable, offering many different views (sometimes even exploded) of the operation in question, and always showing just enough to communicate without overwhelming the reader with too much detail. These alone would be worth the price of the book, but the written explanations and instructions are also very helpful, offering tools, materials lists, and hints that wouldn't occur to the amateur. The book finishes with a maintenance schedule to help you keep repairs from becoming serious, and the end papers have conversion charts and tables that you'll use time and again. If you can't have Norm the master carpenter over to help you fix your old house, The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair is the next best thing. --Rob LightnerBook Description:
The first three editions of The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair sold more than 600,000 copies. At a price of $35, the 560-page hardcover version was a lot of book for the money. But for some, it was just too big to manage on the job—so we shrunk it. We’ve kept all the information and all the beautiful full-color photos but adapted them to a 6.5-by-8.5-inch compact edition that can fit in most toolboxes and live happily on your favorite bookshelf. Initially, the compact edition was available only at large home centers, where it grew so popular that now, for the first time ever, we’ve decided to make it available to everyone at a reduced bargain price of $24.99. Plumbing, wiring, windows and doors, flooring, furnaces, water heaters, wall coverings . . . if it can be found in or around your house, The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair will teach you how to fix it.
