Plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey visits Stephen Davidson of Littleton, Massachusetts to find the source of a strange "fog horn" sound coming from his plumbing system. Then Rich, along with general contractor Tom Silva, landscaping contractor Roger Cook and host Kevin O'Connor asks, "What is it?" Back in the loft, Tom shows the three basic cuts necessary to install crown molding. And tile contractor Joe Ferrante helps homeowner Brandon Ingersoll of Cambridge, Massachusetts replace some hard-to-find broken bathroom tiles.
