Ask This Old House

A successful spin-off of This Old House, this series sends experts Tom Silva (contracting, renovation, carpentry, home repair), Rich Trethewey (heating, air conditioning, plumbing, ventilation) and Roger Cook (gardening, landscaping, hardscaping) to the homes of viewers. Viewers write the show and producers select questions of broad interest and send the appropriate expert. For some special problems, like wells or electrical work, the "Ask" expert coordinates with a local contractor and with him narrates the project. Occasionally, follow-up discussions occur in the barn following the segment, where the experts and host Kevin O'Connor consider alternatives or clarify potentially murky points.
