The Do It Yourself Network swooped into Marie Spadaccino's home this summer and found bad carpentry and a "gaping" chimney hole that was allowing carbon monoxide to build up in the home.
The network's show, "Rescue My Renovation," tore off a bowed section of roof and rebuilt walls and ceilings.
"This roof could collapse at any moment," said John DeSilvia, a licensed contractor who hosts the show.
According to the show's Website, "Licensed contractor John DeSilvia comes to the rescue of distraught
homeowners who have seen their homes left in shambles by the contractor
they hired to fix it.
"Bad plumbing, shoddy framing, being structurally
unsound: These are the complaints that homeowners have after hiring a
bad contractor. John D steps in to make everything right, but he only
has a few days in which to do it. After John and his team finish their
work, these homeowners won't recognize the place."
DeSilvia and his crew labored through 111-degree heat to tear off and rebuild the roof and fix the chimney.
A ceiling was bowed inside and the crew tore out paneling.
In her filmed reaction on the show, Spadaccino said the work came out "gorgeous." She said she almost did not recognize her own home.
