Two Steps Back: Fixing an unsafe front staircase.

After spendning many years living in apartments, Tammy and Jason decided to take the plunge and buy a new home to raise their son in. Everything seemed in order except for the staircase leading up to the front door; it was very basic and needed an upgrade. They hired a contractor to build a proper cement staircase, and that's what they thought they'd gotten. As the 2 year warranty approached, large chunks of cement were starting to fall off and it seemed obvious that the stairs had not been done correctly. The previous contractor delayed any repairs until the warranty was up, and Tammy and Jason were left with a dangerous, crumbling staircase. Mike Holmes and his crew are called in to investigate. Along the way finding many mistakes made by the previous contractor making them tear out the original stairs and start over from scratch. Mike also decides to give the homeowners a few extas including removing a pair of ugly fake dormers that the builder had installed on their roof, fixing a leak in their front window, new interlocking stone in the driveway, and a re-landscaped front garden.
