Publisher Comments:

Bid-winning ideas for home remodeling without costly structural changes. Cost-conscious homeowners are demanding more bang for the buck on their remodeling projects. Here's a book for contractors and home remodelers that can well mean the difference between winning and losing the bids on these jobs. Builder's Guide to Cosmetic Remodeling is packed with creative, cost-effective ideas that can make even older homes look like a million bucks, without expensive structual changes. It covers everything from disguising an ugly foundation to giving a new look to the roof line--and every room in between! You'll find: Information on new and most-requested finishing and cosmetic techniques--and how you can cash in on them. More than 150 illustrations you can use to actually close the sale!; Refacing and refinishing techniques that provide an affordable alternative to high-cost replacement; Nuts-and-bolts information on all aspects of general remodeling, and a host of creative ideas you can incorporate on your next job; Case histories from the author's own experience--some amusing, some illustrating the real risks that contractors need to avoid; A room-by-room analysis of the options open to you, plus basics like HVAC modifications and electrical options. For any contractor or home remodeler looking to expand business, or any do-it-yourselfer looking for affordable alternatives, the Builder's Guide to Cosmetic Remodeling is a must-have resource.
