 In What’s a Homeowner to Do?, Stephen Fanuka and Edward Lewine explain the basics of home repair and maintenance.

With hundreds of clear, helpful illustrations, this essential reference covers such topics as how to install a ceiling fan; determining the right amount of paint to buy; how to repair a loose stair tread; choosing the proper child safety gate; and many more.

Most important, you’ll get expert advice on when a repair is something you can do yourself and when it’s best executed by a professional. In the process, you’ll learn more than enough to speak knowledgeably about any problem with a hardware store clerk, a repairman, or a contractor.
