Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a selection of over 250 questions and answers about home building, repairing, and remodeling from eight years of the popular Q&A column of Fine Homebuilding magazine. Questions are arranged by topic such as roofing, flooring, insulation, ventilation, bugs, mold, etc. Answers, by a variety of specialists, are clear, concise, and illustrated if necessary. Homeowners will find many common problems covered, including paint flaking, crawl space and basement moisture, stains and efflorescence on wood and brick exteriors, matching old moldings, and installing skylights. Prospective builders will learn some building techniques to either avoid or incorporate. A good supplement to moderately sized collections on house construction/repair.-- W.T. Johnston, formerly with Coastal Plain Regional Lib., Tifton, Ga.
