Rail Against the Deck

When Laura and Robert adopted their child from China, they knew they were going to need a bigger house. Their starter home sold so fast that they felt a little rushed. The first home they liked got such a bad home inspection report, they decided against it. Then they found a different house. Only nine years old with a big deck and backyard, it had a positive home inspection already commissioned by the previous owners. Thrilled, they went ahead with the deal. Right from the start, none of the toilets flushed properly. Then, one rainy day, Laura slipped on the back deck and the railing broke off in her hands. Now the deck, that was a major selling feature, is off limits. They need help from Mike Holmes and the rest of the crew to make the house safe for their little family.
