Marketplace When the Repairman Knocks

Marketplace When the Repairman Knocks

In a special one-hour edition of Marketplace, Tom Harrington tests the skills and ethics of home repair services. Among Canadians' top complaints: overcharging, suggesting or performing unnecessary work and shoddy quality. We put home service trades-people to the test, in a house wired up with hidden cameras. We watch them while they work on what should be a fairly simple repair job only to get charged for unnecessary work.
