Tanya and Alexander bought a 40-year-old home without an inspection. They hired a contractor to renovate the second floor addition and gave the contractor a sizeable deposit to start. After a few weeks of work, the contractor walked off the job and declared bankruptcy. After a lengthy and frustrating legal battle turned up nothing, a second contractor was hired to complete the work. All seemed fine until they used the laundry. Mike and his crew arrive to discover the plumbing was connected to the weeping tile and not the main sewer line, draining soapy water onto their property and the street. Mike decides to gut the laundry room after finding faulty venting, electrical and insulation- all of which added to the plumbing problems.
