Couple sues Property Brothers claiming they did a crappy job on their residence renovation

I’m not gonna lie, I by no means thought I would love Property Brothers. The first time I watched the present I used to be like, who’re these corny-ass brothers? But after about 4 episodes, I used to be a full Jonathan and Drew Scott fanatic. That being stated, as a lot as I like their dorky repartee, anybody who has seen a minute of their residence renovation exhibits can most likely assess {that a} renovation achieved within the insane time restraints they’ve on the present is probably going to be a shoddy reno. The most surprising factor is that it’s taken this lengthy for somebody to sue the present after renovating their home on Property Brothers.

A Las Vegas couple who appeared on the present is suing after alleging that the brothers principally did a slap-dash job on their renovation. Each episode of the present, Drew and Jonathan work with a neighborhood contractor to renovate houses and now Mindy and Paul King are suing the manufacturing firm behind the present and the native contractor employed to do the job, although the brothers should not particularly named within the lawsuit. The Kings spent near $200,000 on the transform (a typical false impression is that HGTV foots the invoice — it doesn’t), and after trusting the brothers, HGTV and their steerage, they’re now telling KTNV News they really feel “bamboozled” and “tricked.”

Lots of the work the couple is displeased with are shoddy beauty points like peeling paint and chipped fixtures. However, one door put in doesn’t open, one other door leaks within the rain, a brand new wall that was inserted is “bowing” inwards, there’s grout of their burners on their new vary, and in accordance with an electrician who studied a few of the new kitchen home equipment the Scotts put in — a few of it isn’t as much as code.

After the large “reveal” on the present, the Kings spoke out about their grievances with the transform and the contractors continued to work on the home for one more two months, however the Kings stated that a few of their makes an attempt to restore the problems solely made issues worse. The couple’s lawsuit claims over 90 deficiencies in the home.

“They just come in and they bring a Sharpie or spray paint and try to make things look pretty, but they don’t,” Mindy advised KNTV. “We didn’t spend this type of cash to have our cupboards repainted six instances and nonetheless have paint coming off.

Though the Scotts aren’t named within the lawsuit, the popularity of their present hangs within the stability they usually launched an announcement claiming the Kings’ lawsuit is “an attempt to secure a substantial monetary settlement.”


The complete factor is shady, but in addition, these rattling brothers are all the time constructing homes in like, one week, and each episode appears to focus on the truth that they’ll by no means appear to find help beams. Maybe these guys aren’t the world’s biggest residence renovators? Maybe they’re simply… stick with me… actuality stars?
