Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This revision of the 2003 edition features small changes and updated photos, but the instruction remains the same. Conveying basic skills, the coverage is brief and primarily focuses on specific roof installations. A major drawback is the lack of attention to repairs and fixes. The Complete Guide to Roofing, Siding & Trim in the "Black & Decker" series is more comprehensive.
