Canada’s #1 expert on DIY simplifies Canada’s most common (and avoidable) DIY disasters.

DIY projects seem quick and easy. You start thinking that you’re repairing a crack in the ceiling, and before you know it, you’re tearing out a dividing wall to make space for that new kitchen island. But without careful planning, the right materials and a few pro tips and tricks, you’re more likely to end up with a disaster than a dream home. Luckily Bryan Baeumler has brought his decades of experience to this fully illustrated, step-by-step guide to all of the most common DIY fixes, upgrades, renovations and installations. You’ll learn which materials are worth the splurge and which tools are better left at the hardware store, where to cut corners, and where to spend a little extra time. Above all, he’ll teach you to build it to last, so you can spend less time working on your home and more time enjoying it.
