Home Maintenance: Looking After and Improving Your Most Important Investment

Author(s): Luke Van Dyck


Think about the last time you bought a house — the real estate agent probably just handed you the keys and wished you well. That’s pretty crazy when you consider how much money you have just spent! This book will teach you about your home - the different types of structures (e.g. brick veneer, double brick, timber frame). It will teach you what basic tools you’ll need for simple jobs around the home, and explain how to maintain the different rooms in your house, from the kitchen to the bathroom, floors and ceilings, doors and windows, walls, the roof, and outside. Also included are hints and tips on painting, energy efficiency, cost saving and water conservation. There are 11 projects (set out in step-by-step format, with photographs) to do yourself including how to build a deck and even how to hang a picture.
