Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The exterior of your home takes the full brunt of weather conditions. Learn how to keep it in good repair with this book. This update of the 2004 edition now includes a new, meager section on trim work as well as a section on ecofriendly roofs. Also better are the updated sections on new tools and materials, such as rubber roofing. The photo gallery is quite attractive and fresh, reflecting current and popular house styles. The evaluation of materials-relating to home style, maintenance, duration, and drawbacks-is particularly nice. Text is matter-of-fact and clear, with no topic overdone. A useful and usable guidebook, this is recommended for all public libraries.
