Renovation has been the standard reference on the subject of renovation for 40 years. This revised edition will address the new realities of the housing industry in the 21st century, where homeowners are spending more cautiously, staying put longer in their homes, and becoming more savvy about energy conservation. Recurring elements in this new edition will address affordability and adding value, space conservation and multi-functional use, and flexibility of design.

This revised 5th edition includes expanded sections on:

  • planning (including two new featured house renovations
  • structural carpentry
  • electrical wiring (including new information on EV chargers)
  • masonry and foundations

Renovation is a truly comprehensive reference, as much concerned with what and why as it is with how to. For every topic covered, from foundations to finish flooring, readers will find the tools and materials they need, the problems they may encounter, and workable solutions to see them through.
