Knowing what is going on within the walls and floors of their homes and
under the grass in their yards is important to HomeServe’s customers.
For 39 years the This Old House crew has guided homeowners
through the process of updating and transforming their homes. This
Old House experts are trusted by 2.5 million weekly viewers who look
to them for inspiration, expert advice, and how-to instruction about
investing in and renewing their homes. With 89 Emmy nominations, the
show has won 18 times; the most recent Emmy win for Best Lifestyle
Program was awarded in 2016.

“Our partnership with This Old House is a natural fit as we are
all on the same team, educating homeowners and helping them navigate the
ups and downs of homeownership,” said HomeServe CEO John Kitzie. “We
know that This Old House viewers spend many years and thousands
of dollars improving their homes. We also know that one broken pipe can
throw a lot of that hard work and investment out the window.”

“We are pleased to welcome HomeServe to the This Old House family. Just
like This Old House, HomeServe is focused on helping homeowners keep
things running smoothly at home. That commitment to homeowners, coupled
with HomeServe’s proven customer service track record and efforts to
recruit more skilled contractors into the workforce, create the building
blocks for a successful partnership,” said Eric Thorkilsen, CEO, This
Old House Ventures, LLC.

In addition, HomeServe will partner with This Old House Ventures, LLC in
its Generation Next campaign to help close the job skills gap in the
building trades. Together, HomeServe and This Old House will raise
awareness about the demand for skilled trades people in the U.S. and the
rewards of working in the home building and renovating sector. In
September, talent from the This Old House television show will
join HomeServe representatives during HomeServe’s Annual Contractor
Conference.

“The home improvement experts on This Old House are not only
trusted by millions of homeowners, but also by contractors and builders.
The brand is a recognized leader in helping the contractor community
