Home Inspector Joe and designer Noel Gatts are back — and they're ready to jump right back into their fixer-upper ways. Here's what to expect from their new series.
UPDATE: JULY 24, 2023
Popular home inspector Joe Mazza of Home Inspector Joe will leave no stone unturned to find and fix dangerous property problems in HGTV’s newest renovation series, What’s Wrong With That House?. During the eight-episode run, premiering Saturday, September 23 at 10 a.m. est, Joe and his go-to designer Noel Gatts will help clients uncover and repair any hidden issues in their homes before they take on their dream renovation. From leaky pipes and cracked foundations to broken boilers and unsafe fireplaces, Joe — a licensed home inspector with more than 20 years of construction experience — will figure out what needs to be fixed. Once the property is in tip-top shape, Noel will step in to make it beautiful. She will find creative ways to maximize each family’s budget, giving them functional and stylish spaces.
“It’s like detective work when I’m climbing up on a roof, digging around underneath a house or sniffing out mold,” says Joe. “Making a home safe for a family is always my number one priority.”
In the first episode, Joe and Noel will meet homeowners Jessie and Rex who have encountered several costly problems while attempting a much-needed renovation. Joe will immediately spot the cause of the property’s ongoing water damage, advising to regrade the yard to prevent future flooding. Noel will see the potential in the home’s exterior, leaning into its Cape Cod style and suggesting the addition of an entryway and portico with a new stone walkway. She also will tackle the cramped kitchen and living room so the family has space to gather, either for meals or around the piano. In the meantime, Joe will continue his search for structural red flags, uncovering a cracked foundation and leaky plumbing, both of which will take a bite out of the budget. Future episodes will feature fixes ranging from abating lead paint and asbestos to repairing cracked walls and sloping floors, but once Joe and Noel address every flaw, families will enjoy gorgeous, safe homes.
