Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book makes drywall installation much less intimidating. Wagner, author of many construction books (e.g., House Framing), provides superior instruction, covers the basics, and addresses distinctive installations from simple to complex. The drywall repair section is impressive. There isn't much change from the 2005 edition of this book other than small layout tweaks. Still, this comprehensive guide holds its own against other manuals on drywall. Recommended for most collections.
