Best Home Improvement Book Ever!!

This book has been extremely helpful with the updating of our 30 year old home. It has easy to understand step-by-step instructions with pictures, it lists the skill level, tools and materials needed for each project. They've also included many special tips on using tools, purchasing materials, safety, etc. Our home improvement knowledge has increased greatly and are very pleased with the finished projects. We were so impressed with this book that we purchased one for our son.

New to home repair? This book’s for you!

I bought this book a couple of years ago when I began my home renovations. Now, as I venture into construction as a career, I find the knowledge I learned within this book helps me all the time. Even now when I come across a new project, a replacement tub was the latest, I still return to this book to get the basics. The text is in an easy to read format, and the many drawings of the work in progress are invaluable. Each project starts out with a guideline of skills needed and time required based on your level of experience. There are also many tips and suggestions along the way.While this book is not cheap, I’m glad I spent the money. Good luck with your home improvement project!

A MUST HAVE for any home owner!!

Generally when I used think about home improvements I thought about calling somebody (experienced or not) to help me with it. To be honest, until just after I bought this book (2+ years ago) I didn't think I had the inate skills needed to do something as alien to modern men as replacing a toilet seat, much less replacing the whole toilet and installing a dish washer the same day!! This book, aside from not being very good at helping you lift heavy things, is all the help you will need to complete hundreds of different improvement projects around your house.The skill gauge is very acurate in it's time estimates and tells you what level of skills you should have before starting a project - This is helpful if only so you can put your plumber on call. With all the information on tools, their usage, and the type, amount and quality of materials you will need this book could make Homer Simpson look like Bob Villa. . . Well, maybe more like Tim Allen, but you get the point.I highly recommend this book and the Home Depot "Outdoor Projects" book as well!! Truly money well spent!

Excellent Home Improvement Book

This is an excellent home improvement book that any person should have if they are thinking of doing home improvements. The skill gauge tells you what level of skills you should have before starting a project so you don't get in over you head. There are safety alerts, trip savers (great for people like me who usually make about 3 or 4 trips to the store for one project) and it even tells you how long you can expect to work on a project depending on your skill set. This book is a must for anyone who does or wants to do home improvements.
