Black & Decker Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair: With 350 Projects and 2000 Photos (Black & Decker Complete Photo Guide)
Synopses & Reviews
With over 2,000 gorgeous, crystal-clear illustrations, your DIY home repairs have never been more straightforward. And now, in an updated compact size, there’s no job site this book can’t handle.
What do you do when things break? If you’re like most people, you have two options: call a repairman or pay for costly replacements. But if you’ve ever wished for a third choice, this is your book: a one-volume encyclopedia of do-it-yourself fixes that will save you money, time, and frustration as you become your own home handy-person.
The first three editions of The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair sold more than 600,000 copies. At a price of $35, the 560-page hardcover version was a lot of book for the money. But for some, it was just too big to manage on the job—so we shrunk it. We’ve kept all the information and all the beautiful full-color photos, but adapted them to a 6.5-by-8.5-inch compact edition that can fit in most toolboxes and live happily on your favorite bookshelf. Initially, the compact edition was available only at large home centers, where it grew so popular that now, for the first time ever, we’ve decided to make it available to everyone at a reduced bargain price of $24.99. Plumbing, wiring, windows and doors, flooring, furnaces, water heaters, wall coverings . . . if it can be found in or around your house, The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair will teach you how to fix it.
This updated edition is presented in a larger portrait format for better visual clarity. All the features that made the original book America's bestselling bible of home repair are still present, including more than 2,300 color photographs and detailed step-by-step directions.
The third edition of this bestselling book—known to home improvement retailers as Big Red”—features a larger portrait format for better visual clarity as well as more than 30 projects and 300 photos not found in the original.
Plumbing, wiring, windows and doors, flooring, furnaces, water heaters, wall coverings… if it can be found in or around your house, this complete and conveniently compact book will teach you how to fix it.
Bigger and better than ever
The two previous editions of the book known by home improvement retailers as “Big Red” sold nearly 600,000 copies. This new edition features a larger portrait format for better visual clarity, and incorporates a new page layout style. But all the features that made the original America’s best-selling “bible” of home repair are still present here—thousands of color photographs and detailed step-by-step directions.
The third edition also includes more than 30 projects not found in the original edition, as well as more than 300 new photos.
