All components of home ownership and maintenance are covered, from understanding and making the most of your "walkthrough", to when and how to perform essential maintenance tasks.

The Handbook of Specifications and Scopes of Work for Trade Contractors covers specifications, methods of installation, and standards for 35 of the specialty trades that build and remodel houses.
