Amazing.....!Excellent......!Just enjoy it.....!
Not a long endorsement, but to say that this book is phenomenal and has been a godsend over the past four (4) years as my wife and I gutted and completely rebuilt the insides of a wonderful old home that had been terribly neglected.
If you've an inclination to tear that old worn carpeting up in search of parquet flooring, read this first. The author will give you timeframes in which that kind would have been installed, what type of fastening, does the subfloor need shored up or are the joists in need of sistering, when is it time to replace a subfloor, etc. etc. etc. If you need an EXHAUSTIVE guide on how-to, this is it.
