About the show

Home renovation looks so easy on TV. We see a project move quickly and smoothly from start to finish – and the results are always beautiful. But somewhere between "before" and "after" there are always at least a few speed bumps – and one great story. Budgets skyrocket, tempers flare, relationships suffer. This is real life, and DIY Network's Renovation Realities proves that even in home improvement, truth is often stranger than fiction.

The Velasquez Job

Jaci and Nic Velasquez have a hazardous front porch that needs to be renovated. The existing porch has been repainted and shoddily repaired numerous times, and this family thinks it's time for an upgrade. First, Jaci and Nic are planning to completely demo the existing porch. A cement staircase was hidden beneath the porch until Nic recently removed overgrown bushes that were harboring brown recluses. This staircase will have to be demoed as well, something Nic believes will be easier said than done. To finish out the demo portion of their renovation, the cement walkway leading up to the stairs will be torn up as well. The Velasquez family is planning on building a contemporary front porch after all this demo is completed. Consisting of an extended roofline, multiple steel support cables that create a 'floating' appearance, this renovation will completely change the look of their home. A new stone walkway will be laid down to add a warm and inviting finishing touch to this ambitious project. Jaci and Nic are excited to have a front porch that their children aren't afraid of, that won't injure friends and family who walk on it, and they can't wait to get started.

The Kushner Job

Whitney and Brad Hancock are renovating their unused upstairs area into an extra bedroom or nursery. The short treads on the staircase that leads up to the area make it impossible to walk up and down, so the first step will be to demolish the existing staircase and install a new one. Once that is complete, they feel as if the entire space is too closed off, so they plan on opening up the entire area by demolishing all interior walls to start with a blank slate. The ceiling is drooping and needs to come down, a broken window and its frame will be replaced and the broken flooring will be torn out as well. When all demo is complete, Whitney and Brad will then install insulation, drywall and new bamboo floors throughout. Even after all of this work, they are planning on hiding an exposed HVAC duct somehow. With limited DIY experience, The Hancocks are overwhelmed by the sheer size of this renovation, but know that they need the extra space.
