Customer Reviews
Good enough to read twice, March 3, 2002
Reviewer: R. Phillips from Northern California USA
I borrowed this book from a co-worker and have read it with great interest. I'm here to purchase it because the information is so clear and appropriate. Tips for making a deck last and how to repair and maintain a deck. This book will help you make it right the first time. Every home owner should have this in their library!

OK if you only want to build a square or rectangular deck..., June 3, 2000
Reviewer: A reader from Ann Arbor, MI
After finding that deck builders are getting $25-$35 per sq ft in MI I decided to design my own deck. If you only care about a square or rectangular deck then this book is pretty good. "The Complete Guide to Decks" from Black & Decker (available at Amazon.com also) covers the basics plus gives detailed information on including angles, circular portions, steep slope construction and multi-level construction.

The best deck building guide by far., August 12, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from St John, IN
I work for a lumber dealer and one of our areas of expertise is decks and deck estimates. When customers ask for a book or something to help them through the project I always suggest "The Complete Deck Book". I have reviewed many books for my company and this was the only one that stood out.

If you are planning a deck project, this is a must have.

Everything you need, April 12, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Plainfield, NH
I built my deck almost entirely from this book. It's especially good at the structural engineering detail. Some other books try to steer you away from doing your own design. A nice photo selection, but no plans for any of the fancy extras.
