Drywalling looks easy, but anyone who has tried it knows that it is physically demanding and that one needs a knowledge of many finishing touches and tricks-of-the-trade to ensure a good job. In this revision of a 1996 title, Ferguson, a drywall hanger with 20 years' experience, shares his hard-won knowledge with readers. The most commonly used drywall techniques are covered step by step, and there are additional sections on various types of drywall, tools, and decorative effects. A great deal of attention is paid to taping and sanding, which are the keys to an attractive job. Libraries owning the original edition should consider this update, as a number of new techniques and products have been developed. Recommended for all public libraries.
