Emergency Restoration Experts and Sisters Star in HGTV's New Show 'Renovation 911'
Property disasters are no match for Minneapolis-based sisters Lindsey Uselding and Kirsten Meehan. Here's all the details on their new HGTV show Renovation 911.
Homes caught in major disrepair by fire, flood storm or other unexpected catastrophe will receive a remarkable rescue in the new HGTV series Renovation 911. Premiering Tuesday, March 28 at 9|8c on HGTV and available to stream on discovery+, the eight-episode season will follow Minneapolis-based emergency restoration experts and sisters, Lindsey Uselding and Kirsten Meehan, as they fix families’ property disasters. In each episode, the duo will race to the scene and join their complementary skills — Lindsey oversees logistics and insurance, while Kirsten manages construction and design — to assess the damage, reassure the homeowners and develop a full restoration and renovation plan. With warmth, empathy, a special expertise and humor, Lindsey and Kirsten will help clients see past their distress and create completely transformed dream homes that are better than before.
“When a client has an emergency, Kirsten and I make sure their family is okay and promise to get them back in their home as fast as possible,” says Lindsey. “We guide them through the restoration process, but our job is about more than restoring a house. It’s about bringing a family back home to live.”
“Lindsey and I see house emergencies of all shapes and sizes,” says Kirsten. “The key is that we stay positive for our clients no matter the extent of the damage and show them the fun in reimagining their new and improved home. We love giving them a fresh start.”
The series premiere will spotlight Lindsey and Kirsten rebuilding a family’s kitchen, living room and garage, all destroyed by a raging fire. In addition, they’ll investigate a house left with a gaping hole from a car crash and try to save a client’s flooded living room and basement after a washing machine hose leak. During the season, Lindsey and Kirsten will face more property mishaps head-on, including a fallen tree through a roof, burst radiators and a sewer backup — and Lindsey will turn into a client when a major hail storm hits her home.
