About this book
Henri de Marne is among America's best-known experts on every aspect of home ownership. For 32 years, people have depended on him for answers to questions such as: . What should I do when moss is growing on the north side of a roof?. How can I stop the toilet tank from sweating?. How can I paint a basement floor and not have the paint peel off?. What is the best way to get rid of carpenter ants?. Where can I get replacement hardware for my old windows?. Why have my windows been steaming up ever since I installed a new furnace?The one disadvantage of a column, of course, is that you don't necessarily save all those columns, to be handy when you need the information.This is a big collection--probably the most complete handbook for homeowners that has ever been published--and in the same conversational, easy-to-understand language that readers have come to expect over the years
