Stanley's Decks: A Homeowner's Guide is a comprehensive, visual handbook packed with step-by-step photographs and authoritative, reliable information. For homeowners wanting to add, replace, or upgrade a deck, author Dave Toht will take them through every step, from
design and planning, choosing tools and materials, installing footings and ledgers, framing,
installing decking, and building stairs and railings, to outfitting the deck with benches, planters,
and other built-ins.

DIYers will find:

complete, step-by-step instructions to build four different types of decks--a patio deck, a first-story deck, a raised deck, and a multi-feature deck--which include a range of decking and railing types and special features. Deck maintenance and repair is included as well.

Dave Toht, a former contractor with decades of hands-on experience, has written or edited more than 60 books on home repair and remodeling. He is the author of three Stanley Quick Guides: Home Energy Savings, Easy Bathroom Upgrades, and Easy Kitchen Upgrades.
