Great Wall of Crap: A Retaining Wall Faces Complete Failure When a Contractor Doesn't Measure Up

The retaining wall on Elaine and Bert's property was starting to fail when a contractor working next door offers to help. As the work gets underway, it quickly becomes clear that the construction isn't up to par, and finally an engineer confirms what they already suspect: their wall is the worst job they have ever seen. Their contractor completely gives up, and literally picks up his tools and goes home. Mike Holmes takes over the job and shows exactly what can go wrong when you don't do the homework that leads you to the right professional.
