Sometimes, to really understand what you’re building, you need to take it apart. That's the idea behind DIY Network's Deconstruction, a show dedicated to exploring the science behind home improvement. Join licensed contractor Matt Blashaw as he dissects the questions every do-it-yourselfer wants answered sooner or later. How does pressurized wood get pressure-treated? How strong is tempered glass and how is it made? Is home insulation really fire retardant? With field trips to research labs and testing facilities and by doing some fun testing of our own, Deconstruction has a unique mission: to let our experts help turn you into an expert too.
