Ask ’This Old House’

If you ever watched “This Old House” and wished the show’s experts would come and help you with a problem, now’s your chance.

The TV crew will be making a stop in Pittsburgh in September and they are looking for homeowners to feature in “Ask This Old House,” a regular segment on the popular PBS program. Submit questions related to plumbing, carpentry, landscaping and electrical systems. If you’re chosen, you will be visited by contractor Tom Silva, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey or landscape contractor Roger Cook. As they work on your project, a crew will film a segment for an upcoming show. Visit www.thisoldhouse.com/askaquestion to enter.
