Prometheus Books, Publishers, 1999 - House & Home - 352 pages
This is the definitive consumer reference book for diagnosing and solving the many problems that can crop up in your home, from a driveway that is flaking to a toilet that won't stop running. Why spend hundreds of dollars on outside help when all you really need is a little advice on home maintenance and repair? The solutions are simple and this handy, all-purpose manual guides you through them step by step. And when you've got a really difficult problem, The Home Ranger tells you which professionals to call to get the job done right.

Industry experts Roger Peugeot and Tim Carter, with their characteristic wit and straight-to-the-point style, address more than 200 of the most commonly asked questions, from shingles and studs to garage doors and landscaping. In addition, they provide a comprehensive library of trouble-shooting guides for many household appliances and fixtures, plus a complete listing of telephone numbers and websites of major manufacturers.
