Overview

A home is a family�s single largest purchase, and one of the few that doesn�t come with an owner�s manual. The Hawaii Home Book fills that void. Equally suited for owners of new homes or for those fixing up an older house or simply looking to maintain their investment, this book covers the nuts and bolts of keeping a home in the Islands, from lighting to landscaping, roofing to pest control. Here are time-proven solutions for preventing and treating unique problems -- salt water corrosion, mold growth, and tropical pests -- that Hawaii's homeowners face. In addition, author Karen Anderson guides the homeowner through the often overwhelming process of choosing the flooring, roofing and cooling, among other home improvements, that's right for his or her particular residence.
