Popular Mechanics 500 Simple Home Repair SolutionsBook - 2008
500 questions...500 smart solutions! From worn shingles, leaky windows, and squeaky floors to musty odors, slow-heating furnaces, and sump pit drainage, every house has something that needs repairing, changing, or upgrading. And Norman Becker, the engineer who writes Popular Mechanics "Homeowner's Clinic" column, can help homeowners fix the problem. He presents an amazing range of must-know information in an accessible question-and-answer format--all taken from real-life situations. Three easy-to-follow sections--Exterior, Interior, and Electromechanicals--cover all areas of the home environment: shingle moss on the roof, wood-destroying insects in the foundation, stained bricks, gurgling sinks, plus paved areas, landscaping, basement crawl spaces, plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, squeaky floors, stuck doors, and more.
