Synopsis

Collins Complete DIY Manual by Albert Jackson, David Day

Collins Complete DIY Manual has sold over 3 million copies and is the most comprehensive and authoritative DIY manual ever produced. For novices, DIY enthusiasts or professionals, this essential book continues to be the most in-depth, up-to-date and user-friendly DIY book on the market, covering everything from decorating and repairs to electricity, plumbing and much more. This fully updated version features an even more accessible design to help you navigate easily through the info, and thousands of new photographs and illustrations to make sure you get your job done quickly and safely. There have been many changes to regulations in recent years, particularly in electricity (the new Part P legislation and changes to cable colours) - the Manual not only lists but also clearly explains these new regs and helps you work with them. And as we all become much more conscious of the environmental impact our homes have, new material on energy-saving DIY is essential reading for any householder - saving you money too in the process.

Reviews

A book that does exactly what it says on the tin - Sarah Vine, The Times For novices and competent DIYers alike, it continues to be the most user-friendly manual for any job from installing a toilet to replacing a tap...A new generation of DIYers may no longer justify space for a weighty book like this on their shelves, but for me at least, it is an essential reference. - Self Build & Design
