Product description

Review

This book is one of the Black and Decker series. It concerns doors and windows. It has a lot of pictures. It shows each step of installing a door. It shows which tools to use and when to use them. It shows how to cut and fit the door and trim. I like it when there is a picture with a caption under it which explains what is happening in detail. Often times a two page spread would have 12 pictures with 12 captions. I think my work will look more professional now that I have read the book. I use it for reference at times. I recommend the book --ED Hance<br /><br />Not only did it cover step by step on all doors and windows. It covered garage doors and openers. It discussed installing locks. And there was even a section on if your window won't open you do this to fix it type of stuff. Also, if you are putting in a bay window, there is a section on how to roof it. I had been looking for a help book like this for a long time. It does not bog you down in highly technical stuff. --Weekend Carpenter<br /><br />This review comes from a certified non-handy guy with minimal practical skills. I was fortunate enough a year ago to discover a fine window guy. As a result, we have excellent Pella window replacements in our 1930 Indiana home. I bought this book to help me with next steps: specifically, what do do about our crumbling main entrance way and our on-again, off-again internal doors. It all has charm, you understand. The problem is it only works half the time. Before I make the investment in these next steps, I want to understand my options, what portions of it I might remotely hope to do myself, what I'm in for if I hire an external expert to do the work. THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO WINDOWS AND DOORS has helped me on every one of those fronts. In addition, it's just a handsome book with lots of good illustrations and well-written text. We're not talking Dostoyevsky here. You'll need to go elsewhere for great literature. But I doubt the old Russian was much good with windows and doors, anyway. This book is a keeper. --David a Baer

DIYUpdate your home with new windows and doors and save energy, too. Marshall, carpenter and author, addresses the importance of lighting, ventilation, and security for the home. A gallery of inspirational photos is followed by a discussion of materials-styles and selection of windows or doors and related hardware. Included is consideration for use by those with limited mobility or strength. Planning, layout, and installation are covered next. Good, logical, step-by-step instructions walk the reader through simple to more complex projects, but basic techniques are tucked in the back appendix. Excellent coverage of the topic. Recommended. --Library Journal
