Publisher's Description

All the do-it-yourself information you need for your home repairs. BLACK+DECKER The Book of Home How-To is easy to search through, even easier to use.

The editors at Cool Springs Press know a thing or two about DIY home improvement and maintenance; we've been writing about it for the past quarter-century, and we have more than a few bestsellers under our tool belts. Until now, there's been one thing missing: an ultimate, fully-loaded, reference book for every home project you can dream of; the compilation of our longstanding expertise; the home how-to book to crush all others.

The good news doesn't stop there; BLACK+DECKER The Book of Home How-To is designed to reflect the way we search for information today. You won't find chapters or long, boring introductions, or even a table of contents. This book is an A-to-Z encyclopedia with precise how-to instructions and clear photos packed onto every page. With an expanded index that is incredibly intuitive and a simple, alphabetical strategy for organizing the information, you won't spend precious time wading through stuff you don't need to know.

Finding first-rate information on home care has never been easier, and all the most common tasks around your home are covered--including:

  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Flooring
  • Walls
  • Windows and doors
  • Cabinetry
  • Insulating
  • Heating and cooling 
  • Roofing and siding

And that's just scratching the surface. Just about any repair or remodeling project you can imagine is right here, at your fingertips.

Editorial Reviews

"The book is heavily illustrated with clearly written, step-by-step instructions for all manner of home repairs and installations. The drywall section alone runs more than 20 pages, and that doesn't include a separate entry on textured ceilings!" - Decatur Herald-Review


"Owning a house inevitably means repairs. While there are lots of books addressing various aspects of home improvements and fixes, a general manual covering everything from top to bottom is favorable. This is an encyclopedia of home repairs, pulling much of its material from two previous books in the "Black & Decker" series��Black & Decker The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair and Black & Decker The Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement. The pictures are large, thankfully, and the instruction is clear, making repairs and improvements quite doable. The book's arrangement is alphabetical by project title. Unfortunately, that order is not always intuitive. While there is a detailed index and keyword list, it is more difficult to browse through and find related projects. Still, the work makes a solid companion to Creative Homeowner's Ultimate Guide, which has a broader range of fixes and improvements but not as much detailed instruction. VERDICT For libraries that lack the titles it pulls from, this compilation is a recommended addition. The photos and instructions are quite strong, and the lack of topical arrangement is awkward but not insurmountable." - Library Journal
