This practical, plain-speaking book brings together essential information on the causes of all kinds of damage, distress, and deterioration problems in the home, and guides the homeowner toward the making of repairs that are in keeping with the nature of the problem and reasonable in terms of time and money expended. The entire range of structural problems is covered, from foundation to roof, interior walls to porches and patios, and from the aesthetic to the absolutely essential. A very attractive copy.
