Windows and doors have a huge impact on the appearance of your house, and their type and condition go a long ways toward determining how people view your home. A fabulous door can add thousands of dollars in "perceived value" to a plain house, just as a few new windows can shave off a decade or two in apparent age.Black & Decker(R) The Complete Guide to Windows & Entries is a fully-updated revision of Black & Decker(R) The Complete Guide to Windows & Doors. At 288 pages, it features more than 600 beautiful colour photographs that are rich with current information. It contains virtually everything readers need to plan and complete any kind of window and door installation. The new version also features an expanded section on door and window hardware, as the types, styles and finishes change frequently. Also new in this edition: an expanded section on installing and maintaining garage doors; a complete start-to-finish project for enlarging a basement window opening and installing an egress window; a quick and easy technique for giving your fibreglass door the appearance of wood grain; and much, much more.
You'll find no better single book that better covers the ever-changing topic of choosing, installing and maintaining doors and windows.
