Publisher Comments:

Ships in November 2011. Watch the DIY series Million Dollar Contractor with Stephen Fanuka.

 In What’s a Homeowner to Do?, Stephen Fanuka and Edward Lewine explain the basics of home repair and maintenance. From assembling a tool kit to understanding the pros and cons of casement and double-hung windows, from the ins and outs of moldings, faucets, and electrical outlets to the best way to maintain appliances and driveways, you’ll find out everything you’ll need to know to keep your home in fine working order.

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.

What's a Homeowner to Do? is the best home improvement guide ever!
