Season 3, Episode 5

Pardon My French Drain

All Ian and Ceason wanted was to waterproof their basement so that they could finally utilize the space as a suite for visiting family members and friends. A number of contractors came and went, but not without making things worse. One contractor attempted to underpin the foundation after it dropped four inches while digging out the French drain and ended up creating a sizable gap between where the basement walls meet the floor and who knows what else. Now they are left with a damp, dreary and destroyed basement that they avoid entering at all costs. John DeSilvia arrives on the scene and delivers a beautiful, watertight basement that Ian and Ceason will want to use just as much as their guests.
