Ten Pound Home Repair Guide book review

Guest Author - Maureen L Staccato

Those who own their own home will tell you that home ownership requires ongoing repairs, the occasional renovations and the unanticipated emergencies. Hiring someone to do your repairs or renovations can be costly. Having a good home repair guide is a must with home ownership.

The Ten Pound Books- Home Repair Guide by Creative Publishing International

This guide is 501 pages of remarkable pictures, meticulous instructions, and a residential construction reference guide; It thoroughly covers basement repairs as well as preventive measures, painting techniques and tools, framing, door repairs and installations, windows and storm windows, interior and exterior walls, many textures and flooring materials as well as sub flooring, attics, kitchens, plumbing, wiring, lighting as well as minor electrical, heating and air conditioning, doorbells and septic.
You’ll also find a complete tools and materials list for all projects, helpful hints that save you time and money and aggravation, troubleshooting charts that help you pin point the cause of common problems and their solutions. One thing I found to be a great asset was that it also includes a maintenance checklist for seasonal as well as annual inspections and routine repairs.This manual covers everything from the smallest of repairs to the most elaborate.
I purchased this book about a year ago and it is like the bible of home repairs. Just about everything I could possibly need for my skill level and slightly beyond is provided in this well illustrated book!! The other manuals I’ve bought either had great text/charts with very few diagrams or pictures or focused totally on pictures for DIYer’s but omitted needed calculation tables and building code information. It can become costly and aggravating to have to go from book to book looking for the right answers or something that you can comprehend.
That’s why this guide just blows me away…every page has great photography and comprehensive cutaway drawings to unmistakably demonstrate, for instance, how my replacement windows for my kitchen will tie in to my brick veneer from the rough wall opening. Some of the explanations may be a little simplified for the more knowledgeable carpenter, but the editors have also included quick reference tables for the experienced handyman as well. Each section has an overview of general principles; planning a functional kitchen space, for example, a list of related tools/materials, and detailed instructions/photos for a few projects (installing laminate countertops). At 500+ pages and over 2000 color how-to photos, it’s very thorough yet well-organized. Everything is right in one book and at your fingertips.
