When something breaks in your house, finding and hiring an expensive repairman shouldn't be the only option for homeowners. Next time your faucet springs a leak or that bedroom doorknob punches a hole in your drywall, fix it yourself with help from The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair: a one-volume encyclopedia of do-it-yourself fixes that will save you money, time, and frustration.
