Structural home repairs often take a back seat to shiny new appliances, pretty paint colours and big ticket electronics. In each episode Kristi repairs and transforms these neglected homes and their oblivious owners.
By educating negligent homeowners to value “practical over pretty”, Kristi ensures that their home will take care of them for years to come. From plumbing problems that seep into a home’s foundation drip-by-drip to a no-ventilation bathroom that breeds a full-scale mold invasion, Kristi has seen it all. Using shock tactics and a tough love approach, Kristi has the right tools to teach homeowners – and viewers at home – how to maintain a lifetime relationship with their homes.
