A Must for Basic Home Maintenance submitted by Meginator on June 19, 2021, 11:35am This is a fantastically useful book full of do-it-yourself solutions for common home repair issues, from the simple (fixing a leaky pipe) to complex (installing doors). Each set of instructions is presented in clear and accessible prose with accompanying illustrations, often including a description of what might be causing the problem along with potential solutions. I’m not a very handy person, but I was able to quickly do some quick (and surprisingly simple) repairs in my own home with this book at hand. I encourage all homeowners to look here before deciding whether to hire outside help, and this book significantly raised my own self-confidence when it comes to being able to take care of my home.
