Such whole-of-building repairs can be stressful, especially when you know next o thing about building construction or repair. Moreover, most such repair works are likely to be time consuming, costly and disruptive. While there’s no escaping this, you can make the process less difficult if you have some information.

This book will tell you what you need to know from the very start to the very end of your repair works. It’s divided into clear sections that take you through the repair process and includes a section on troubleshooting, for all those issues that will come up (sorry, but they will).
