I am having a problem getting these books in the local stores even though online it states that they have them, the stores are unable to find them in their stores. Am I able to just buy these directly from Home Depot online? I use these books as settlement gifts for my homebuyers (I am a mortgage lender) and I would love to continue to use these as my gifts. Please help!

Does it include instructions on working with vynl? Patio covers,gates & fencing

Asked by: steve
I do not know about the Covers but yes it does have Gates and Fencing Instructions. They give great detailed directions on several different types also. The Instructions are pretty good in the details and with step by step instructions that include pictures and much more information. The only one I struggled with understanding, was the Wire Gates for standard Fencing, using the heavy gauged metal type seen around many homes and on farms. My Gate is still sitting out here after not being able to identify the piece parts needed to complete the job. I made my own gate design and built it out of out wood. (worked for my situation)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best DIY books out there. I'm a huge Home Depot fan and spend at least one day a week in my local store. I was in the home improvement business for 20 years, but there is still stuff I don't know. I picked up this book, and love the fact that not only does it give clear illustrations and instructions, but the pages are loaded with helpful tips (often from professionals), to ensure you do the job right the first time. I have used this book to install gutters, repair a leaky roof, fix a toilet, among other things, and will use it again this weekend to help install a bamboo floor. I've read and collected a lot of DIY books, videos and magazines over the years, this is by far, the best book of it's kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the new homeowner I bought this for myself when I bought my first house and now I buy it as a gift for everyone I know who buys their first houses. I learned so many things that I would not have attempted without the step by step instructions. Its the only home repair book I use. Great for everyone, but especially for inexperienced people like myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good reference book for home projects This book was purchased to help with a small dry wall repair project. The project was not done by me, but by a friend with some experience in various home projects, but who had never done dry wall. It provided all the information needed and the project came out as tho a professional had done it. Other upcoming projects have been researched and the book appears to cover all of them. I would recommend this book to any person doing "week-end home projects".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the DIY'er This book is worth the $14.95 even if you never use a quarter of'll get your moneys worth! I know how to lay tile, but I didn't know how to lay-out a tile job, this book paired with Tiling 1-2-3 took me step by step through the lay out for a ceramic tile side job I picked up. Fantastic Purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice, detailed book, though lacking on ONE area.... We purchased this book today at our local Home Depot. Usually, if I need "how-to-do-it" knowledge on a particular home improvement area, I consult YouTube. However, this book caught my eye at the store today and we bought it on impulse. Overall, it's a very good book - well laid out and detailed, and has great photos. If you remember the "Time-Life Home Improvement" and repair series, well, this kind of takes it on steroids and smashes it down into one easy to navigate book, with very good photos and instructions. Overall, I would recommend this, as we have a couple projects coming up (exterior painting on stucco,and stucco repair) that we found addressed in this book, and one sitting I've gleaned a lot of information on things I need to do. To me, one glaring OMISSION, however, is the lack of information on water wells, pumps, pressure switches, and pressure tanks. For those of us that live with wells, that information would be VERY beneficial and appreciated in any future edition of this book. There was no information, as well, on installing home filtration and reverse osmosis systems. For the these two reasons I can only give 4 stars out of five stars.
