Walk the Planks: A Second-Story Deck is an Accident Waiting to Happen

Benny and Queenie bought a 9-year-old home for their growing family. Their home inspector said the second-story deck had some moisture but it was nothing to worry about -- all it needed was a fresh coat of paint. As soon as Benny begins working on the first piece of trim, the deck starts to fall apart. After receiving quotes between $35,000 and $50,000 to repair the damage they contact Mike Holmes to help save their home and their life savings. Mike and his team start taking it apart and discover that the builder did not build it to code. The structure is compromised with rotted wood and could collapse at any moment. Mike is beside himself and shows what happens when homes are built for looks and not for safety.
